WANNABE stage stars were given the chance to tread the boards.
Scores attended open auditions at Gala Theatre Durham for its stage school’s production of Miss Saigon.
The school has been looking for boys, aged between 13 and 19-years-old, for the production which runs at the theatre from July 26 to August 4.
The Gala Theatre Stage School (GTSS) was established in 2002 and is regarded as one of the North East’s leading youth theatres.
More than 200 young people, between the ages of six and 22, are involved in drama, dance and singing every week at the school.
GTSS has performed in several major venues around the North East and Yorkshire including The Tees Barrage, York Racecourse and The Customs House, and have recently been asked to perform at the North Wales Theatre and Conference Centre.
l Tickets for Miss Saigon cost £15, £13.50 for concessions, or £12 for the first night and matinee.
