Theatre of Minds is reaching the stage where it needs more than a team of two. This project can only happen with the help of people from all over the arts community, and we want you to get involved.
Over the summer we have spoken to the Trestle Arts Base and Beaumont School who have agreed to host our two performances in July 2016. In order to avoid exam seasons, provisional dates for rehearsals will be Saturday 2nd July-Friday 15th July 2016 although this will be confirmed nearer the time. On Saturday 16th July we will perform once at the Trestle Arts Base, followed by a second performance on Thursday 21st July at Beaumont School.
There are several ways that you can get involved and we would love as many people to take part as possible.
We are looking for 6-8 actors to perform our piece on stage. Please bear in mind that the performance will be non-naturalistic and physical theatre will play a key role. The performers will need the highest level of time commitment to the project and will need to be available for the majority of the rehearsal time as well as both performances.
For this area we would like to fill 2-3 positions on a stage management team. They will be in charge of the set, props and smooth running of the performance. Commitment will be needed for the second half of rehearsals as well as both performances.
This will be split into two separate teams, lighting and sound. Overall we will be looking for 3-5 people to cover both areas of technical support. Again commitment will be required for the second half of rehearsals and both performances. At the Trestle Arts Base performance you will be assisted by another technician in line with the policy at Trestle.
Front of House
This role has the lowest level of time commitment, as they will only be needed on the days of the performances. We are looking for 2-3 people to be in charge of interactions with the audience on the night (eg: collection buckets, programme sales, refreshments etc)
This team of 3-4 people would need a lower commitment level over a longer period of time (before and during the rehearsal period). Their jobs will involve advertising and marketing strategies prior to performance. To be involved on the night as well you can also express interest in the front of house team, as these will be working closely together.
If you would like to get involved in any way please fill out this form, it will only take you a couple of minutes. If you have any questions prior to filling in the form, don’t hesitate to contact us via twitter (@theatreofminds) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We would love as many people to join our team as possible.
