Background Cast

As well as putting on our own productions, we also provide Background Cast (also known as Extras) to professional touring productions. These opportunities are unpaid, however are great fun, and gives you all the joy of a live production without any of the rehearsals!

We are currently regularly providing cast for Ellen Kent and Opera & Ballet International who come to the Royal & Derngate with their annual Operatic productions.

Their next production is Puccini’s Tosca on the 31st March 2016, for which we are providing the children's cast:

Opera & Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production, starring the international sopranos Alyona Kistenyova and Maria Tonina and featuring a highly praised chorus and full orchestra.
This traditional production is a heady mixture of true love, torture and treachery, with two of the best roles for tenor and soprano, plus a truly blood-curdling villain.
The show features a magnificent new set with towering marble pillars, plus fabulous costumes. Also including a boys’ choir with a shepherd boy’s solo, this most popular of operas is sure to delight with its tender, moving arias Vissi d’Arte and E Lucevan le Stelle.
Tickets are available from the Royal and Derngate Box Office: 01604 624811 and online.
