Group 64 are looking for 3 x actor/facilitators for an exciting new project
Spreading the Joy. These roles are for 18-25 year olds and are suitable for
someone in their early career who is looking to develop their skills and
training in acting and drama facilitation. Professional acting experience is
not required. Spreading the Joy is a Theatre In Education project funded by
the Wimbledon Foundation Community Fund in collaboration with London
Community Foundation. The Actors/Facilitators will work with a Group 64
Director to create a 40/50 minute performance based around joy and
happiness for 6-9 year olds. This show will then be performed in 4 local
schools and 2 cultural venues. There will also be an opportunity to lead and
assist facilitation in the follow-up workshops that will be delivered to the
school students. The students will have watched the show and the
workshops will further their understanding of the content and discover
ways they can find their own joy and happiness. We are looking for
Actors/Facilitators who are open to having fun and being silly; an essential
part of working in children’s theatre! Please note: if you have any special
skills (puppetry, circus skills, singing, playing an instrument etc) we would
encourage applicants to bring them along to the audition.
