We’re seeking local performers over the age of 18 to audition for the cast of our 2021 production of R4J.
We encourage applications from newly trained performers to take part in their first professional job, but we’re open to receiving applications from more seasoned performers as well.
Cast will be paid for 14 days rehearsal plus 9 performances. Chelmsford City Theatres is a member of the ITC and honours ITC rates of pay.
How to apply:
We require all auditionees to record themselves specifying which role they would like to audition for and performing a classic monologue of their choice. Recordings must be no longer than one minute long. The recording, along with the actor’s CV must be uploaded to either Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/login), Google Drive (https://drive.google.com/drive/my-drive) or WeTransfer (https://wetransfer.com/) and links to the uploaded assets need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure you provide your name and contact information on your CV so we can get in touch with auditionees. The deadline for the video uploads is midnight on Friday 11 June and if you are shortlisted, you will be invited to a call-back audition on Saturday 19 June which will take place at the Theatre.
Dates for the diary:
The cast will be required to attend all rehearsals from 26 August to 18 September and all 9 performances which will run from 20 – 25 September. Some rehearsals will involve working with local young offenders for research purposes. The performances will be in a range of indoor and outdoor venues around Chelmsford.
