Open audition for Wonderstruck drama group

September 22, 2014

Would you like to perform in Manchester Museum as part of a remarkable Weekend of Wonder?

Over one weekend in November Manchester Museum will be taken over by Wonderstruck, a new large-scale performance piece created by professional theatre-makers Daniel Bye, Sarah Punshon and Boff Whalley.

We’re looking for a small team of keen performers to work intensively with us on this exciting project.

Performers will:

ñ Devise new material in collaboration with the lead artists, responding to the wonders of the museum.

ñ Perform text written by award-winning writer Daniel Bye, in some of the extraordinary spaces of the museum: from intimate one-to-one moments to the grandeur of the main halls.

ñ Develop performance and devising skills.

ñ Be a key part of an ambitious large-scale piece involving more than 100 community singers from across the North-West.

Performers must be available for several evening and weekend rehearsals

2-14 November, and the performance weekend itself, 15 and 16 November (10am – 4pm).

Come along to a workshop audition at Manchester Museum. Meet the artists, try out some of the techniques we’ll be using, and see some of the amazing spaces you could get to perform in. Workshops will be held on:

Thursday 25 September, 6.30-8.30pm

Monday 29 September, 2-4pm.

(Please note: you just need to come to one, not both.)

Email Anna Bunney on anna.bunney for more info, or just turn up on the day.

(Singing workshops are Saturday 27 and or Sunday 28 September, 1.30-4.30pm)
