Would you like the chance to be part of a production at the Queen’s Theatre? We have the opportunity for three children to play the role of ‘Ivanka’ in our professional production of Once this autumn!

We are looking for three girls, who look between the ages of 5 – 6 years to play the daughter of ‘Girl’. There will be three children cast who will alternate throughout the run.

Once tells the unforgettable story of a Dublin street musician and a funny Czech woman, drawn together by their shared love of music.

As they assemble a band from her wild Czech family and his quirky Irish mates, the craic grows, the music flows and they fall slowly in love. The ensemble of actor/musicians play their instruments live on stage, in a dynamic show that steals your heart. If you ever imagined Ed Sheeran writing a musical, this is probably what it would sound like.

Once is about what happens when you take chances and go for your dreams.

Winner of eight Tony Awards® in 2012, including BEST MUSICAL.
