Renowned talent management and theatre training programme, Stagebox, is back in Manchester this month hosting free auditions at The Lowry on Sunday 15th August 2021.

The latest shining star from the programme is Manchester Stagebox client and rising star, Isaac Khan, who recently landed a prime role in the all-new CBBC show, Lagging, which follows a group of five young computer gamer friends as they face quests and conquer the online world, and real life.

This is the young actor’s second major screen credit, and now the 12-year-old will be portraying the character of Mo in the new children’s series. As well as training with Stagebox, Isaac is also represented by Stagebox Management.

Isaac’s sister Isobel has also found success thanks to the Manchester Stagebox programme, having recently filmed a lead role for an upcoming Amazon Prime series. Prior to this, Isobel starred as Saariyah in So Awkward for the BBC and made British theatre history when she played the first mixed-race Annie in the West End show.

If you know a young performer aged between 8 and18 who is looking to take their talent to the next level, Stagebox is now inviting auditionees to take to the stage at the in-person audition workshops. Successful candidates will enjoy the exclusive award-winning performance training programme in Manchester during the school holidays, as well as benefitting from the talent management at Stagebox.

Commenting on the upcoming auditions, Stagebox’s General Manager, Jasmine Quinlan Gardner, said: “We are thrilled to return to Manchester following our May auditions in the city – as a widely-respected hub for the creative arts we are so excited to bring this opportunity to the region’s budding talents.”
