Funny South West Men and Women Needed for Bristol Murder Mysteries
Laugh and Let Die are a Manchester based company that have been performing for 6 years, and after experiencing massive growth in the last 12 months, we are looking to recruit local teams of actors for shows across the country.
We have been booked for two of our popular hen party shows at a chain restaurant in York, and we are expecting more. We work with the chain all over the country, and we are expecting York to start booking us on a regular basis for shows for the public.
Our hen party show is a two hander, where the guests play most of the parts. Two actors run the show (and try and herd the guests in the right direction!)
You will be playing two parts in the show. The boorish American casting director (George/Georgina Mucus) and the incompetent lawyer (Tristan Mee/Sue Yurpantzoff).
In this format, the guests play the parts, so two casting directors come out first of all with a skit casting the parts and explaining the rules.
You will then return as the lawyer to the principal, who becomes the murder victim. The actor playing the murder victim returns as the detective, and you are recruited as the lawyer to all the suspects. You are ‘on stage’ with the suspects, supporting them as they are being questioned by the detective and the rest of the guests.
The show is pretty much all improvisation, so you will have to be able to think on your feet. We do have prompt questions that the detective gives to the guests to read out if they are struggling (which is often!), so you can have some ready made responses up your sleeve.
We are looking to book actors for a series of shows. Dates not confirmed yet, but they will start in June, and be one or two a month.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL OF THE DATES! the ideal scenario is we will have a plenty of actors to choose from when casting each show. You will be performing with an actor that has performed in the show before, and will give you lots of support.
We are a comedy company and we are looking for funny people. We play it for laughs, there are no puzzles or codes to crack in our shows. We are there for the jokes!
We are requesting video auditions. You will be given the plot and character synopsis of one of the suspects you are defending, and questions that you may be asked by the guests in relation to their evidence. We want to see how you would answer, and we want you to make us laugh!
We will also want to see your American casting director doing some casting as well.
The fee is £70 per performance.
Call time at the venue is 6:00pm. Show time 7:00pm. On stage for about 45 mins, and then 3 x 20 minute segments between food courses. Finished (including clearing up) at around 11.00pm. Actual show finishes around 10.30pm.
We perform up and down the country and the business has blown up in the last twelve months. We have partnerships with Grosvenor Casino, CDG Restaurant Group, Match. com, Xtreme Events, Red Cactus Events, LastNightOfFreedom stag and hen parties, and many others, and are not expecting the growth of the business to slow down.
