Youngsters will also benefit from the talent management at Stagebox which has helped propel several young Scots into the limelight.

Stagebox recently helped Abby Wallace from Edinburgh land a prime role in the brand-new BBC comedy series, Dinosaur, as Young Nina.

The in-person weekend auditions are free of charge to ensure everyone has a chance to shine.

Kirsti Bagger, head agent at Stagebox, said: “We have completely removed Stagebox audition fees this year as we’re passionate about accessibility and inclusivity.

“Whether you’ve got plenty of experience or are a complete newcomer, anyone can audition to become a part of Stagebox – we’re simply looking for passion, ambition and star quality.”
