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.

Uchenna Dance Show

Dance company Uchenna Dance is creating a new show based on the folktale “Hansel and Gretel,” co-written with Young Vic associated director Gbolahan Obisesan and composer Kweku Aacht.

The team is looking for performers to be involved in both developing and touring this imaginative new take on the classic fairytale. They’re casting physical theater performers with movement or dance experience who are confident with building character and unafraid to “boogie.” Performers must be over 18.

The research and development runs throughout 2018 in London and the show tours the U.K. in 2019. This is a paid opportunity.

If you’re a fit, then head over to the casting notice and apply now.
