ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE DRIVERS.
Immersion Theatre are thrilled to be casting for their spring 2019 UK tour of “The Amazing Adventures of Pinocchio”. This is a brand-new family musical packed with audience interaction, pantomimic script and infectious score. A company of 5 will multi-role to bring this fantastical story to life in Immersion’s trademark high-energy style.
Applicants need to be versatile character actors, have a strong singing voice, be able to hold harmonies and dance to a moderate standard. Previous experience in family theatre/pantomime is essential and experience with audience interaction is an advantage. A full, clean driving license, is advantageous.
We are looking for team players who will embrace the challenges of mid-scale (we all take on touring duties such as get-ins and get-outs) rather than be deterred by them, and who have a professional and positive attitude, a pro-active outlook, and fantastic work ethic. We understand and respect that this kind of touring isn’t for everyone, however, we passionately believe that you get out what you put in, an outlook held by a great deal of performers we work with continually.
We are looking for the following roles :
We actively encourage performers of all ethnicities to apply for all roles
– Gepetto / Stromboli / Ensemble (Male 25-45)
We are looking for a larger-than-life, versatile performer with excellent comedy timing to bring a number of roles to life, two of which include Gepetto and Stromboli.
Gepetto is outgoing, sweet, and playful. A truly caring and devoted father, he adores Pinocchio and would sacrifice anything and everything for his happiness. Equally, he has a youthful spirit so we are looking for an energetic actor with a playful streak and strong comic timing.
Our Gepetto would suit an actor able to play mid-late 30’s convincingly.
Stromboli is loud, sinister, and dangerous. A villainous showman, he is a strong and imposing presence. Please note that given the nature of the show, every member of the company will be required to multi-role.
MUST BE ABLE TO DRIVE
– Cricket / Ensemble (Male/Female 21-35)
The show’s comic and narrator. We are looking for a high energy character actor with excellent comedy timing and exceptional audience interaction. Caring, funny, charming, and incredibly witty, this actor must be able to form a relationship with audiences of all ages, encourage them to interact, and make them fall in love with him/her. A gem of a role.
Please note that given the nature of the show, every member of the company will be required to multi-role.
