Peter Corry’s Christmas extravaganza is returning to Belfast’s Waterfront Hall – with your chance to be the shiny new star taking centre stage.

Yep, all eyes could be on you when Peter Corry’s 2015 production of The Music Box returns to the city centre venue for four performances over three days over 17 – 19 December. With a selection box of music, readings, song and dance on offer, title sponsor SPAR Northern Ireland is looking for one more star to join the glittering cast – this year opening the auditions up to both solo singers and musicians.

Here are five simple reasons to send in your audition video to become the next big star…

1. You get to star in one of the biggest shows of the year


The Music Box is a Christmas highlight – it sells out four shows over three days every year, and you could be part of it! The SPAR star will have their own solo performance in the show.

2. There are famous faces in the cast

Ian McElhinney

Alongside our very own well known Peter Corry will be Joanna Ampil, one of the West End’s leading ladies, having starred in Les Miserables, Cats and Miss Saigon. There will also be dancers from the Strictly Come Dancing Tour and Game of Thrones’ Ian McElhinney will be returning to this year’s production too.

3. This could be the start of something BIG

Last year, Carlie Rosbotham, won the very first SPAR Star title and sang a solo on stage every night of the show. Since then, Carlie has achieved a diploma in Music Theatre, taken part in a two week Music Theatre course and is now pursuing a Music Theatre degree at university. Remember Carlie’s name, she’s going to be big!

4. You will learn from the best


Rehearsing and sharing the stage with some of the finest performers in the UK will give you the best insight into a life in the spotlight. You’ll be working alongside seasoned pros in Peter Corry and Ashley Fulton, and you can soak up their knowledge like a sponge!

5. You will have a lot of fun


From sending in that first audition video on the SPAR NI Facebook page app, to going through the second round of live auditions – it will be just like a real life X Factor! Although we would imagine a lot more fun. You’ll meet new friends and have a blast during rehearsals and the performances.
