Cornerstone will keep creating!

Following government advice about Coronavirus, Cornerstone Arts Centre is currently closed to the public. Visit our blog post for more information on this closure: here.

Cornerstone Arts Centre is still Didcot's community hub even in this unprecedented time where we can't be physically open. We will continue to illuminate theatre, visual arts, community spirit and everything else under our umbrella in the best way we possibly can online. 

For a while, our website is going to look a little different. We are creating pages with details of our new digital initiatives including virtual galleries, streaming theatre and bringing classes into your living rooms so you can enjoy us even during this period. We will continue to be a community resource and we look forward to seeing you again in person when this is all over. 

Casting Call for Professional Cast for Pinocchio

Casting Call for Professional Cast for The Adventures of Pinocchio

Posted on 8 Jul 2019

Stop Press

Exciting news for our Christmas Show, a casting call has been sent out for the professional cast. Cornerstone and Goblin are looking for a team of 5 talented actor musicians for our new musical: The Adventures of Pinocchio. 

Join us at the Spinning Yarn Storytelling Bar, with musical storytelling extraordinaire The Blues Fairy. Together with her band, ‘the Crickets’, she tells the story of Pinocchio. We meet Gepetto as he creates Pinocchio, and follow the naughty puppet as he learns what it is to be human in a confusing world. From finding fame and fortune to finding himself in the belly of a whale, will he side with the good Blues Fairy, or fall foul of the tricky Fox?

Live music will be integral to the show, and part of the action. The lively, colourful, imaginative and inventive show will also feature a team of local young people.

We are also looking for one actor to be the Musical Director for the production during rehearsal and performance. This person will be a highly accomplished musician who can confidently lead the team musically. The composers/musical supervisors will work closely with the Musical Director during rehearsals. Additional fee will reflect added role/responsibilities.
