Conductor Needed for The Polar Express Train Ride - Spa Valley Railway 2021

Kent, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

The Polar Express is a child’s book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg that later was adapted into the 2004 Motion Picture featuring Tom Hanks. Our Polar Express Train Ride starts like the film, where The Polar Express will arrive at the platform to collect guests to take them to the North Pole.

Passengers will get to meet the characters from the film including the conductor, the singing chefs, the hobo and of course the main man himself Father Christmas. Families are encouraged to wear PJ’s as they experience the fun filled theatrical adventure and drink hot chocolate and eat cookies as they make their way to the North Pole.

Once at the North Pole, Santa will arrive on board to meet with each guest (young and old) and give those on the nice list the first gift of Christmas, a silver sleigh bell just as he does in the film.

We are seeking actors and musical theatre performers for this live, interactive theatrical show. In addition to talent, we are looking for actors who can speak in an American accent, that are team players, enjoy working with children, who have good improvisation skills and who can embrace the interaction between themselves and passengers to create a fun, entertaining and heart-warming experience.

All cast members need to be able to:
• React quickly to changing circumstances
• Sing (Christmas carols mostly!)
• Dance (able to follow a basic routine)
• Be 18 years or older
• Available in November & December
