Call-out for two (East Midlands) Early Years Performers for upcoming project with Sarah Argent.

Derby Theatre is looking to cast TWO Early Years Performers based in the East Midlands for a forthcoming work devised and written by Sarah Argent. The show will perform in nurseries, community spaces and theatres in Derby, Surrey, and Somerset.

We are looking for confident, flexible performers with a natural affinity for engaging with young people and who would be comfortable with devising and collaborating. Music and song will feature, so confident singing and the ability to play an instrument(s) is highly advantageous.

Rehearsals in Derby: Monday 22nd August – Friday 9th September 2022

Performances in Derby will take place from Saturday 10 - Sunday 25 September 2022.

Performances will take place throughout October 2022 in Surrey and Somerset with exact dates to be confirmed.

A fee will be paid in line with Equity/UK Theatre rates of pay for Derby.

For touring in Surrey and Somerset, this will be subject to a separate contract being issued by Take Art.

Group auditions will take place at Derby Theatre on Monday 4th July.

We cannot guarantee everyone a slot. Those invited will be notified by Monday 27th June.

We have an integrated casting policy. We seek to cast actors from all cultural groups and of all ethnicities. We also seek to provide opportunities for Deaf and Disabled actors to be cast in our productions. We will cast Trans people in Trans roles, and also in roles outside of those.
