Wanted: Panto princess with aversion to poison apples

Some of the actors auditioning for the role of Snow White in the Ipswich pantomime.

A theatre in Ipswich has been holding open auditions to find a Snow White for its Christmas pantomine.

Two stars more used to performing in front of the judges when they appeared on The X factor and Britain's Got Talent have been doing the judging themselves as the search got underway.

Stevie Ritchie and Collabro's Matt Pagan joined producers at the Ipswich Regent to try to find someone to play Snow White.

Stevie is playing the Henchman and Matt is the Prince.

Almost 20,000 people watched last year's pantomime during its two and a half week run.

Producers say this is a great opportunity for an actress who may just be starting out in her career.

After sitting through more than five hours of auditions a lucky few have been selected for the call backs. One of them has a very exciting December ahead of them.
