ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK
Rah Rah Theatre Company is currently seeking 1 male and 1 female actor for their production of Rock Around The Clock, which will be touring art centres, residential homes, sheltered housing and day centres in London and the Home Counties from 5th July – 26th August 2021. Rock Around The Clock is a musical comedy love story set in the 50’s containing all the popular tunes of that time. We are looking for actors who are good all rounders, happy to sing, do basic dance moves, improvise, and interact with audiences. Rah Rah Theatre Company’s tours are very rewarding, fun, and teach actors to think on their toes. We find nothing more special than seeing someone who is lonely and unable to get out much, laughing and smiling at the naughtiness and silliness our shows bring. Each actor will be required 3-4 days a week each week. The tour dates are as follows: 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th,12th, 13th, 15th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th July, and 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th, 11th,16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 21st, 24th, 25th and 26th August. Payment is per show and will vary from day to day according to bookings. Usual payment is £81-100 per day. The tour base is New Malden and each actor will be asked to travel to and from there each day. Actors will be paid minimum wage for rehearsals. On average we rehearse for 4-5 days in June and this will be scheduled round the team. Please also state if you are able to drive and would be happy to be one of the tour drivers. Auditions will be on the 26th May in Balham. Rah Rah is a great company to work for and offers actors regular ongoing work: it has over 9 different shows for varying types of audience going out each year. Please send CV and photo along with a covering letter about why you would like to do the job to firstname.lastname@example.org
The male actor will be playing two very contrasting parts of Lance and Grandad. The character of Lance is a confident, emerging Rock and Roll star who all the girls swoon over, and Grandad is the comic role and a bit of an old fool who likes to have a drink! Please state if you are able to drive and would be happy to be one of the tour drivers.
The actress required needs to look as though she is in her late teens/early 20’s. She is a 16 year old girl who falls in love with the Rock and Roll star, Lance, much to her mother’s disapproval. Please state if you are able to drive and would be happy to be one of the tour drivers.
