Hello and welcome to one of our shoutouts for projects casting around the U.K. As always there’s a mix of opportunities for all ages, abilities, and locations but do remember to check if you fit the bill before applying. Although we make every attempt to verify castings before we hit publish, please ensure that you do your own research before firing off those headshots and Backstage links. 

Royal Albert Hall’s Grotto
If you’re a character actor with a love for Christmas and musicality, read on!

The Royal Albert Hall is looking for a charismatic, energetic, and engaging actor to play a central role in their interactive and theatrical Christmas experience.

Male and female actors are encouraged to apply, especially those with experience performing for children. You need to be funny, creative and energetic as you’ll be working on multiple performances of the Father Christmas experience.

The Royal Albert Hall is also seeking a female performer/musician for the experience. The ability to play an instrument and sing is essential, as is experience or skill at multi rolling.

No Scrooges allowed, you need to genuinely love Christmas!

Performances are throughout the working day, including some weekends and evenings in the lead up to Christmas, including Christmas Eve. Performers must have references and a current DBS or be willing to undergo one.

To apply, send a headshot, CV, references, and cover letter to sarajp@royalalberthall.com by Sept. 18. Auditions will take place the week commencing Sept. 25.
