All actors are required to run games from their homes. Please tell us about your home set up in your application (if you have a computer/laptop, mic etc). We would also love to hear about any experience you may have in improvisation and immersive theatre. Any experience you may have in being a Game Master or running escape rooms is a bonus - but not essential.
Once selected, paid training will be provided on how to best guide the players through the action as well as some basic technical skills, including Google Sheets.
This casting is open to all. The Adventure Is Real is keen to reflect the diversity of their players in the hiring of their hosts and strongly encourage people of underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
Each game is run by one actor (Game Master) on Zoom and lasts approximately 75mins.
Actors are paid £20 per game and £10.85 per hour for training.
This work would be ongoing, with public games being scheduled on a weekly basis and corporate games booked further in advance. We are looking to supplement our existing roster of actors, so this would suit freelancers with good general availability who are looking for extra side work. We are not expecting actors to be available at all times. This is an ideal flexible job to fit around any other work you may have.
Training will include:
* a free game as a player
* a 2/3 days paid training via zoom (At £10.85 per hour)
* a co-run game with another actor (paid at £20)
* a solo run game, shadowed by an experienced Agent Venture Actor (paid at £20)
Applications close on the 2nd November
******Agent Venture: The Heist’ - script for voice demo ******
Please record this voice demo on the same set up you would use to run the games from home.
Below are 3 characters from ‘The Heist’. We want to hear you bring the information to life and make strong distinctions between the characters. Feel free to riff on any dialogue and put it in your own words if that’s more comfortable for you.
Dispatch: ‘Good day, control! This is Dispatch speaking, and boy am I glad to have you all on board! Are you ready to save the world from an evil corporation and infiltrate B.A.D. Tower? Before I begin, have you already determined who will be your hacker, navigator, researcher, and communicator?'
Agent Venture: ‘Hello, control? This is Agent Venture. I need to get to Floor 88 to find the CEO’s vault. I’m outside Reception, and I see two possible routes to get in. The first route is via the main lifts. The concierge can call the main lift to floor 88, but only for official visitors. I can’t approach the desk myself, they know my voice, but one of you could call ahead. I think there’s guidance for visitors on the website, and you might need to hack me an appointment. The other route is via the trade lifts. I don’t know where they are, Nav would have to guide me. There are probably locked doors that need hacking, and we may still need someone to call the lift for us. Control, which route should we take?’
BOZO (CEO): ‘I have your communicator, Agency. Good luck getting your agent out without it - they are as good as dead. It’s only a matter of time before the sharks devour them. You might be thinking - what if we can stop those sharks? I don’t rely on weak flesh alone. The mechashark also guards those tanks, my third greatest invention. It will tear your agent to shreds! (Evil laughter).’
