Carfest for Children in Need

Hi! I'm contacting you on behalf of Carfest for Children in Need and we are looking for some Disney Frozen characters for our Carnival and would involve a total of 30 minutes performance.

It takes place at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire on Sunday 26th August.

We would need an Elsa, Ana, Olaf, Sven and Kristoff

It’s for a parade so all you’d need to do is to find a costume of one the characters and then be part of the carnival! Waving to the crowds etc so no rehearsal time is necessary. Just show up and look like Elsa/Ana/Sven/Olaf/Kristofer etc!

We are ideally looking for volunteers, but they can come to the festival and see the music etc as a thank you!

Casting local acting/presenting talent in the North Staffordshire/South Cheshire region

I am looking to Audition for Live Broadcast Presenters, a little different than most of the roles I can see on your site however we are keen to find some excellent local talent for our online service as we aim to continue to be one of the most prominent (and best) local employers.

A bit about the role;

It is a Full Time Job – salary starts at £22,000 + 20% bonus (plus added incentives such as Healthcare and discount scheme).
The role will be based in Newcastle Under Lyme in our brand new broadcast studios. Currently on a 3 on, 3 off shift pattern.
Strictly aged 18 and over with energy, drive, enthusiasm and bags of personality.
With over 51 nationalities working in our business, we welcome applicants of all ethnicities and genders.

The programme consists of Casino programming, for one of the world's largest and most recognisable brands, as the face of our product, you will not only present the game and provide commentary, you will have the opportunity to interact with players.
You’ll have the freedom to build the conversation in your own areas of interest, whether it be about topics in the news/popular culture or your personal passions. However, you’ll also be intuitive, having the sixth-sense to know what your audience needs and keep them entertained. Aside from the presenting aspect to the role you will of course be working in a live online casino set, so you may need to provide explanations how the games work or provide guidance on any product related info.

Any inqueries or questions, can be directed to myself:

Matthew.simpson@miceanddice.com.

Kind Regards,
Matthew Simpson
Entertainment Producer

Mice and Dice Ltd.

CALL OUT FOR ACTORS, WRITERS! 16+ (NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NESSECARY)

I am currently looking for people in Am Dram groups (to make it more a community feel) to take part in my final project for my Arts Award Qualification. (Actors and writers in the Derby/Derbyshire area prefered) more information is below.
Thank you, Alex Smith.

Here is some information about my final project for my Arts Award qualification I am studying for. I'm putting together a variety theatre week and I'm looking actors and writers of 16+ (parts for all) Rehearsals are every wednesday and Thursday (with one Friday) on every 1st and 3rd week of the month from October and the show is 1st Feb - 7th Feb 2019 Below is a brief outline of what I will be doing, is below I am looking for pieces of writing to be submitted so they can be performed by a group of actors. (If you are interested in acting aswell please say!) Please email any submission/interest to me at alexsmith1742@gmail.com please try to submit pieces that involve minimal props and stage scenery. If applying to be an actor please state your availabilty in your email.

I want to do a week long performance variety week with something happening each day for about 1 long performance (all submissions are open themed but each day has a type of genre of theatre to be performed.) Monday is called Moan-a-log Monday which is monologues, so they need to be written to address another character on stage. These can be between 2-7 minutes long. Then there is Turn it up Tuesday, this is a music night so no writing needed for that unless you are a musician who performs. Wired Wednesdays are radio plays/journalism/news/non fiction suitable for radio (but shall be adjusted slightly to be performed on a stage for the night by use of immersive theatre) If submitting a radio play no longer than half an hour. To you Thursday is silioquays so they differ from monologues in the fact that they are discussion/interaction with the audience only (again 2-7 minutes long). Fantasy Friday is fictional short stories. (Up to 10 pages long). Scene it Saturday is 5-15 minute long sketches/mini plays/improv and the like and finally Sonnet Sunday is for poetry, which can be up to 5 pages long (in any form, sonnets, rhymes, haiku's etc). You can submit as many things as you want and I shall be choosing which are to be performed through out the week.

I do plan on posting these to Facebook as well after the event so they will be recorded as well where possible and I am hoping to make it a regular slot. If anyone has any questions please ask. Deadline for submissions at the moment is 10th September.

Have a lovely day!

Portraying the crowns forces as well as pirate. Civilians and Georgian ladies.

Thus is pirating at its best. Held in the fort and with the towns blessing it is getting behind us. BUT we still need help.

We have a need to find borrow and have delivered to the fort a stage. We don't need a all singing fold up thing. Just a wooden platform. It can be in several parts but needs to be movable around the site.

We are also seeking additional players to play the.parts of wretches. Spanish prisoners. Women of loose morals and one or two other parts.

If you feel you can help us in anyway please feel free to contact me.

We have the mayor coming. hopefully BBC radio Suffolk. The event will soon be going to press and we can give you good exposure as well as providing the platform for yourselves.

We would like to include you in our programme. You can reach me. By way of return at stevehansen62@msn.com Or call me 07470405752.

May the blessings of the sea go with you

Writing a ten minute play

Hello.

I'm a creative writing tutor and have just created a short online course on the teaching platform Udemy.

I thought my course – Writing a ten minute play would be of interest to your members. It covers writing plays as individuals or in groups that can go on to be performed.

It is a paid course with occasional periods of discount and I think a helpful outlet for those who have a good idea they want to develop or a project they want to run.

I'm happy to talk about my course and how it can help to improve writing skills and aid community projects. You can have a look at me if you follow this link.

Invitation to a very special workshop opportunity (a Boeing 747)


My company is running a very unique training operation on-board a Boeing 747 and we are looking for people to fill seats. Due to the timings of the event, there will be a 6 hour period whereby your drama group can run your own workshop for your own students and members on the aircraft. We don't mind if you act, dance, sing or just think that it would be a good video, photo or PR exercise! There will be an opportunity to act as extras (though this is not mandatory) and chance to take part in something straight out of Hollywood, including special effects.

The event will take place on the 11th & 12th August. This is relatively short notice, but there are no minimum number requirements to take part and the fee per head is low for a venue which would normally costs thousands to hire. We'd essentially like local drama groups to be able to benefit from this and run a class or workshop onbaord. This really is a case of "the more the merrier".

If this is something that may of interest to your organisation, please don't hesitate to contact me. We'd ideally like to get any expression of interest in reasonable time before the event.

Kind regards,

Dan Evans
