Scarborough-based entertainer James Aconley will be directing the YMCA pantomime this year and is holding auditions for the seasonal show next month.
Sleeping Beauty will be on at the theatre in St Thomas Street, Scarborough, from Boxing Day to January 4.
Auditions are at the YMCA on Tuesday September 17 and Wednesday September 18 at 6.30pm.
James has been working with the young people from YMCA Productions as a vocal coach for their hit summer show Grease. Directed by former Scalby School teacher Chris Taylor, it has its final performance at 7.30pm on Thursday August 29.
“I can’t wait to direct the panto at the YMCA after starting out in Pinocchio there nine years ago,” said James. “If you want a fun-filled Christmas, come and audition,” he said.
