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.

Actionwork Theatre Company is looking for eight actors for a six-week paid professional contract (16 October-26 November 2017).

They’re after young actors and new graduates who are confident, positive and have a range of performance skills. They must be strong, resilient, prepared to travel a lot of miles on tour, and work unsocial hours. The job is great fun, fulfilling, important, and hard work.

Actors should be CRB/DBS checked (or be willing to have a CRB/DBS check done), and not barred from working with children or young people. Fee is £350 per week, plus travel and subsistence costs.

To apply, send a CV and headshots to actionwork@gmail.com. Please also enclose a covering letter saying why you would be right for the job, if you can drive, and whether you own a car (not essential).

Auditions will take place 12 September in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset. Applications close 9 September at 5 pm.
