Georgie Mackie

She says it’s a joy to be part of Christmas theatre, especially when big names tread the boards.
“Actors do their serious work during the year, but all great actors step out of those roles and do fun events for the family, at

Christmas,” she explains. “They still need to use their skills, but have more freedom, and a lot of fun.”

Although Charles works with professional dancers year-round, during the festive season she oftens work with actors who have never had dancing roles.

And, of course, in this role, you’ll need to be really fit – so if you can’t limit your burgers and beers, this isn’t for you.

“Pantomimes can be very physical,” Charles adds.

Where to start

• A good place to get training in all-things theatre is to visit getintotheatre.org.

The site was created by experts in the field and here they will advise you on how to go about pinning down a creative, technical or management job.

There’s also workshops from acting to script writing listed on the site.

• When you’re ready to apply for jobs, either apply directly to productions and theatres around London or visit thestage.co.uk.

This is the online version of the industry paper, which has hundreds of current theatre job openings around the city.
