Promo: Derby Theatre. Casting Call Out for Female Actor Musicians in Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Casting Call Out for Female Actor Musicians in Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Hiccup Theatre and Derby Theatre are co producing a new version of the classic tale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  The show will enjoy a Christmas run at Derby Theatre studio followed later in 2019 by a short regional tour.

The show will be a three hander, based on ideas devised by the company and building on Hiccup’s trademark stamp of versatile storytelling told by a band of actor-musicians. We are therefore looking for versatile performers used to devising and ensemble playing who can sing. Experience of puppetry and the ability to play a musical instrument is essential.

1) Female: to play the part of storyteller and Mummy Bear.

2) Female: to play the part of storyteller and Goldilocks.

We are interested in creating a diverse company and so welcome applications from BAME, D/deaf and Disabled actors.
