“To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movie, Brighton Theatre Group have been chosen as one of a handful of UK companies to perform Chitty, a production that will play Theatre Royal Brighton for eight performances from August 20-24.If your child is between seven and 11 years old, and no taller than 4’11 this could be their chance!

“We are looking for boys and girls to play the major principal roles of Jeremy and Jemima Potts as well as an army of children to portray the sewer children hiding beneath the Baron’s Castle from the fearsome Child Catcher. Whether your child has lots of stage experience or is keen to try the stage for the first time, we would love to see them.”
