Male Actors Sought for Father Christmas Interactive Role in Dorset

Male Actors Sought for Father Christmas Interactive Role in Dorset

United Kingdom
Listed by View details

The opportunity is for an interaction with audiences on the outdoor illuminated trail at National Trust venue, Kingston Lacy, Dorset.

Stationed along the trail will be an opportunity for a spontaneous meeting and brief interaction with Father Christmas – this is managed in a socially distanced setting, as though individuals and family groups are dropping in on him while he is busily engaged in his Christmassy duties.

The key skills will be improvisation, judgement, warmth and energy. Actors will work to a written brief which offers suggestions for interaction and key information pertinent to the venue.

It's not a traditional grotto and it's an outdoor performance, sharing a 5 hour session in turns with another performer.

Costume, except footwear, is provided.

Daily travel will be required to and from the venue so be sure to know where it is - in Dorset. BH21 4EA
