English Youth Ballet (EYB) is on the lookout for 100 boys and girls to perform in a full-length production of The Nutcracker at Wolverhampton's Grand Theatre in the autumn (29 & 30 September).

Auditions will take place at the Grand on Tuesday 7 July and are open to dancers aged eight to 18.

Participants will engage in a 90-minute class given by EYB's professional ballet staff.

Ideally, all would-be auditionees should register in advance to save administration, but the company will also accept registration on the day.
