“Standing at the Crossroads” is an original piece of theatre, created by new theatre company “MK Theatricals”, this will be our first production and we can’t wait to get started!

The team at MK Theatricals have vast experience in many areas, some having over 10 years experience in the industry, and if successful you will have the opportunity to grow, learn, and hone in your skills as a performer, giving you something valuable to place on your CV.

At MK Theatricals we are all for equal opportunities, therefore accepting performers into the company with little experience thus far, and allowing them to progress through the process.

We have a large dedicated and committed team within the company, ready to make our first production a success for all who are a part of it.

Our first production has many strong themes which centre around LGBTQ, including mental and physical abuse, friendships, relationships, death, and loss, with elements of comedy and lightness thrown into the mix.
There will be scenes of acting and dance combined together, making music a big driving force behind the story, creating something slightly different in theatre.
We have received great positive feedback from those who have already read the script.

Now we require Actors and Dancers to fill the many roles available, to be a part of the company, and to create something special!

Upon applying, please give us your email address, as we will be sending out an Audition Pack, which gives you full details on the show and characters available, also instructions on how to apply for the auditions.

Auditions will be in January 2021 (date to be confirmed), which will include an optional audition workshop, followed by individual auditions.

Rehearsals are scheduled to begin in March 2021, and show week scheduled to be in July 2021.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the uncertainty of next year things may change, but rest assured if your successful the show will go on, either when scheduled or at a later date when possible.

Please see below brief descriptions of the acting and dance roles available.

We look forward to seeing your applications!
