2 Actor/Singers Required for New & Controversial EdFringe Musical!

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

We are looking to complete our cast for K*nt & the Gang's hilarious magnum opus 'Shannon Matthews - The Musical' which is doing a 3 week run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022. There is a link to the full audio version of this show on YouTube (available on application) - we highly recommend you listen to it before applying to make sure you're happy with the content. We are happy for our actors to work under pseudonyms if they prefer!

On application we will forward you dialogue sides and some lyrics and an excerpt of backing track for you to sing along to, to send back to us.

This is a profit share production (after expenses). Standard EdFringe stuff really. Accommodation will be subsidised (you pay a lot less than it actually costs - and nothing up front - it comes out of any profit we make).

All roles require some singing ability but you don't have to be an incredible singer.

Actors must be available for the entire run - that is 4th August (tech and dress) until 28th August 2022 (final performance 27th).
Actors must be available for half-day weekly rehearsals (these will be on a weekday!) in York from March/April next year, therefore Yorkshire based talent is preferred.

We now also have a preview show booked on Saturday 23rd July 2022 in Leeds which you would also need to be available for.
