Call Out for D/deaf and Disabled actor/musicians and actor/singers


The New Wolsey Theatre is keen to extend our pool of D/deaf and disabled actor/musicians and actor/singers and will be hosting a casting call on Wednesday 26th September 2018 at Toynbee Studios, London.

We are a mid-scale venue that typically produces at least two actor-musician shows per year including our rock’n’roll pantomime. Next year we are specifically looking to cast for a new musical production, as well as our panto in the Autumn 2019 season. In addition, we are hoping to find individuals we might keep in our general pool, who we will also be able to recommend to other theatres in our networks.

The day will provide an opportunity to meet a range of Artistic Directors. Those attending will be asked to bring their own instrument and prepare a song.

Please send your cover letter and a CV, as well as listing any specific access requirements to info@debbieobrien.net by Friday 21st September at 4pm
