    • Hey Carli 🙂

      I’ve spoken to the Ents team and as long as you’re 18 by the time we open (March) We will need a letter from your parents/guardian saying it’s all okay for you to under go rehearsals and training before your 18 🙂

      Thanks and hope this helps!

  • Holly

    Hi, I want to attend the auditions in March and it said to email someone, which I have. How long will it take for the to reply or can I just turn up? Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Holly 🙂

      Exciting times! It can take a little while to get back to everyone as we get so many emails but in the meantime I’d say read the breakdown of the job you applied for and prep for whatever it says you need to do 🙂

      Good luck!

  • Chloe

    Hi, I am a full time college student studying Performing Arts. I will be turning 18 this December and would love to audition to become a fun star for Summer 2016, but I would just like to know when I would need to start training in the event that I would be succsessful in my audition just to make sure that I would have finished College as I would be gutted to find that I had to decline an oppertunity because it clashes with college. Thanks 🙂

    • Hey Chloe 🙂

      We normally recruit our FunStars in January but if you tweet @funstarsgolive they will be able to help you 🙂

      Good luck!

  • Rebeka

    If I auditioned for the 2016 season, I wouldn’t finish college until the beginning of July would I still be able to apply or would there be no point until the next season as I would’ve missed the beginning few months?

    I’m Currently in my third year in University studying Theater, Tv and Performance and have always wanted to be a fun star since the age of 9, when I went for my first haven holiday. If I audition next year after I finish third year, can you pick the location you can work, this is due to travelling and other priorities.
