Auditions on the 23rd/24th/25th September 2019

Job payment

Paid - £500 for lead roles, £100 for supporting roles, plus all actors equal total profit share


UPDATE: this is an amateur production, I've been getting an unrealistic amount of interest from London based people. If you still want an interview having read this then please message again: For clarity  - the money for all parts are token gestures. They are one single payment of £500/£100 plus an equal share in the total ticket sales for attending all required rehearsals and all performances (maybe two - up for discussion). This is an amateur production; I've left it open for all UK (incl. London) for ancient Greek tragedy lovers who will accept the financial loss of weekly travel to Sheffield (for lead roles) in order to bring this work to the stage.
