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.


Missed out on any of the Crimbo opportunities we’ve been shouting out for in the past few weeks? Don’t fear, you can get your swig of the Christmas spirit with Theatrebugs. The renowned young people’s company is casting another touring Christmas show this season. Called “Where is Santa?”, the piece will tour schools, children’s centres, and nurseries across London and the Home Counties from 1–22 Dec.

You’ll need to be approachable, full of energy and have experience performing for young children. A great singing voice is a must, as is a current DBS certificate.

The company is looking for two or three male actors, any playing age. As with their other shows, the company takes bookings all week, usually in the working day and sometimes in the evening.

Performers are paid per show up to £95 per day and rehearsals are paid at £7.50 an hour.

Auditions will take place over the coming weeks in Woolwich, East London.

To apply, email your CV, headshots, and Backstage link over to with a short covering letter by 10 Oct.
