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.

Acclaimed director and designer of Pins and Needles, Zoe Squires, is casting for her production “The Bear,” heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer.

The adaptation of Raymond Brigg’s story involves movement, puppetry, and song and rehearses in Bristol before going up to Edinburgh for a full run. The team is looking to cast two roles, Mum/Polar Bear, and a supporting role. Both roles are open to male and female talent, aged 18 and older.

Rehearsals begin in July and the play runs until Aug. 27 with professional pay.
