The Tempest

Taking flight -Actors Required

Actors M/F for an outdoor, promenade, accessible tour of Wales of The Tempest.  

Taking Flight are an award winning inclusive theatre company based in Cardiff, working with access at the heart of the creative process.   This production of The Tempest will push boundaries and requires actors who are not afraid of hard work or challenges both in the rehearsal room and on tour.  A good sense of humour and excellent work ethic are essential.    Also desirable (but not essential) are actors with the following skills: driving license and willingness to drive on tour, ability to play a portable musical instrument, a strong singing voice, good movement skills, touring experience, a base in South Wales. The tour is to some of the most beautiful venues in Wales, actors will need to be prepared for the vigour of touring outdoors – we perform whatever the weather and it does rain in Wales!

This is an ITC/Equity contract and Taking Flight are signed up to the ITC Ethical Managers contract and adhere to Equity’s Outdoor touring guidelines.  This tour is funded by Arts Council Wales

Overall dates are May – July/ August 2017 (exact dates tbc)
