All three will share the role of neighbourhood boy Bert.

They must be in year four, five or six of school, able to do an American accent, learn dialogue and be confident enough to perform on stage in front of an audience.

The company is holding an audition workshop from 5pm-6pm next Tuesday, January 13, at The HEG, High Street, Ipswich.
