We have a very exciting opportunity for a freelance actor/musician/facilitator to join us in devising and touring a new performance for primary schools (EYFS and KS1) and schools for children with special educational needs. We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with Chester Zoo on this Arts Council England funded project.
Devising and rehearsal will take place during September and October 2017. Performances will mostly take place in schools in Manchester between October and December 2017 with some in the following spring. Please be aware that this is not a full time role; we anticipate that we will be performing 2 or 3 days/week during that period (dates will be agreed by the three performers prior to schools booking). Fees are calculated on a half/full day rate and range from £120 -190 per day.
We are hoping to find someone who will be part of our company beyond this project.
We believe that every child is entitled to the highest quality theatre experience. Our performances use music and puppetry, and the ‘audience’ are very much a part of the experience.
We’d love to hear from performers/ practitioners who…
have a proven commitment to empowering children through drama
have a playful, open approach and attitude
are 100% reliable
give attention to detail
have experience of performing
are based in Greater Manchester
Please tell us about your experience/skills in the following (not in order of importance):
Playing a musical instrument (and feel confident to use this in performance)
Working with children and young people with special education needs
We welcome applications from people of BAME origin.
To apply please email your CV and a brief covering letter (max. one page of A4) telling us about yourself, what your current commitments are up to spring 2018 and about your longer term aspirations. These should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
(Emily Capstick 07846 – 085457).
Please send your letter and CV by 6pm on Thursday 29th June.
We will be meeting people to discuss the project on Thursday 6th July.
