The Ghetto Youth Theatre (GYT), based in the Millfield Theatre in Edmonton, is looking for several actors for their next production, 'Shanktown2'.

A vibrant, gritty and provocative drama from Edmonton's own 'Ghetto Youth Theatre', Shanktown2 is the story of Shane, a young woman torn between her gang loyalties, and a desire for the freedom of the wider world. Her crew, 'The Forgotten Soldier's', and their old rivals, 'The Shanktown Goon's', have called an uneasy truce, but a malicious outside influence is conspiring to bring them both down...

We are looking for young actors willing to give up a Thursday or Friday night once a week until the production on the 16th and 17th of Febuary 2010. This is a great opportunity to get involved with a vibrant and active youth group based in a leading North London theatre.

Location: London, United Kingdom

Payment details: no pay

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


Pri is the leader of the Shanktown Goons. He has found himself disillusioned with the gang life and is looking for ways to bridge the gaps between the local crews. Pri is a good guy at heart but he understands that he has to present a strong front to keep his reputation intact, and he is not afraid of confrontation when neccesary.
