We are looking for actors, singers and dancers of all levels of experience and backgrounds to fill a variety of roles. Whether you want to be a hero, a villain or a fairy, we have a part for you!

Auditions will take place on from Friday May 5th till Sunday 7th 2023 at the Basel English Panto Group Cellar, Sperrstrasse 67, Basel. You don't need to prepare anything in advance, just come along and show us your talent and enthusiasm.

We are pleased to invite you to our second Murder Mystery fundraising event. Due to popular demand, we are hosting two events - one just for kids/young teens (aged 14 years and under) and one for adults and students (aged 15 years and older who are in education). Tickets are first come, first served and please register using the links below. Deadline for ticket registration and payment is April 1 and characters will be assigned after that date (in early April). Notably, tickets must be paid for in advance in order to confirm your attendance and get a character assigned to you.


What is a Murder Mystery event? It is a themed event where guests dress up to match an era or a genre. Each guest is given a specific character and they need to come to the event dressed like that character and act like that character during the event. All the guests then work together to solve a fictitious murder which occurs during the party. This event is often compared to a live-action version of the game Clue!

THEME: Murder at the Deadwood Saloon. It's the 1st Annual Deadwood Poker Tournament Party! For weeks, people have been pouring into the small western town of Deadwood for the biggest poker tournament this side of the Mississippi. From outlaws to marshals to saloon girls, the vast array of visitors and residents of Deadwood have made this small western frontier THE place to be. As the festivities of the poker tournament conclude, a celebration party is planned at the Deadwood Saloon to award the prize money for the tournament and to celebrate what is hoped to be a very financially successful venture for the saloon. With a smattering of bandits, bank owners, saloon girls, gamblers, east coast debutantes, and a few of the locals, this is guaranteed to make for a very interesting evening indeed. You would be a fool to miss this celebration!

In 2020, restrictions did not allow a live performance, but with a great deal of creativity and excellent organizing, a combination of filmed segments interwoven with a live feed on two evenings, brought “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” online to the public. The traditional panto was saved, albeit in revised form. Unfortunately, revenues took a hit and the theatre group’s reserves seriously dwindled. We are reaching out to as many people as we can with an urgent request for donations to keep the Basel English Panto Group alive.
