Applications are invited for an open audition for actors and actor/musicians with Talking Birds Theatre Company in Coventry. This is an opportunity to meet and work with the company in a relaxed group setting over the course of a day (11am-4pm), at the Shopfront Theatre in Coventry. We are not auditioning for specific roles, but rather identifying talented and versatile performers who the company can draw on for future projects (see www.talkingbirds.co.uk for examples of our previous work). We will also be inviting Artistic Directors from other regional companies to join us in the afternoon. Travel expenses and lunch will be provided.
To apply, please e-mail us at birdmail[at]talkingbirds.co.uk subject: Open Cast, with a resumé/CV of your experience to date (can include video/audio links), plus a short statement on why you would like to attend the workshop and what you would bring to working on a project with the company.
We particularly welcome applications from artists based in the Midlands, disabled artists and artists from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. This opportunity is aimed at emerging or established professionals rather than students, though those approaching graduation or postgrads will be considered. We will accept submissions through agents if they are accompanied by a personal statement from the individual.
Applicants of any age over 18 welcome.
Date of Workshop: Friday 5th June (Coventry)
Deadline for applications: 18th May (10am)
Date we will inform successful applicants: 22nd May
