Two Actors Required for Comedy Sketch Team
We write and perform our own material several times a year and anticipate involvement in the forthcoming Stroud Theatre Weekend in September (13th 14th 15th).
We are looking for two new actors to fill our ranks who would like to get involved.
No experience is needed in this genre, simply a willingness to work as a team member performing quick sketches with a fast turnaround! Any age considered.
Our comedic influences are probably Black Adder, Absolutely, The Two Ronnies, Benny Hill, The Big Train, French and Saunders, Not the Nine O Clock News, Dave Allen and Carry On. This is the style of humour since we write all our own material.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesRehearsals will begin on July 8th with some meetings to be held in the weeks beforehand to discuss content. Actors must be able to commit to a Monday or Wednesday rehearsal in Stroud for at least seven of the ten weeks before the performance dates in September.
This job is unpaid
Expenses paid - The three September shows will pay our group £5 per audience member. This will be paid out in equal shares among our group after props expenses.
Please note our group location which is Stroud, Gloucestershire. We would suggest applying if you live within an hour's drive of Stroud for purely practical reasons.
