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.

“Burning Books”
If you’re an actor based in Leicester or the East-Midlands, Curve needs you for their upcoming production of “Burning Books” by Jess Green. The play is about the increasing pressure on the education system and takes place in a staff room in Leicester. It has been developed with Curve and will now play without decor to audiences at the Inside Out Festival in October.

Auditions will take place in Leicester on 19 September with recalls on the 21st. Rehearsals and production dates are the 16th to 28th of October. The theatre is also using auditions to build a database of actors to be considered for future readings, workshops and new plays in development.

Application close on the 4th of September at 5 pm. For a full character breakdown and how to apply, visit the Curve auditions page.
