JACK AND THE BEANSTALK 2023

 

Rah Rah Theatre Company is currently seeking actors, between 20-45 years old, for their Christmas pantomime, “Jack and The Beanstalk”, which is touring Art Centres, Residential Homes, Sheltered Housing and Day Centres in London and the Home Counties in December and January.

 

We are looking for actors who are good all rounders, happy to sing, do basic dance moves, improvise, and interact with audiences. We are particularly interested in actors that drive and would be happy to be one of the tour drivers in the company car. 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 has been unable to get out at Christmas, laughing and smiling at the naughtiness and silliness our panto’s bring.

 

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.  

 

Due to the types of venues we will be visiting, all performers must be vaccinated.

 

Initial auditions will be via self tape with recalls taking place on the 20th and 21st of September.

 

We have several teams going out and tour contracts vary from 6-8 weeks. Our tour’s start from the 28th November 2023 and run through to the 19th January 2024. Each actor will be required 5 days a week.  

 

Payment is per show and will vary from day to day according to bookings. Usual payment is £100 per day. The tour base is New Malden and each actor will be asked to travel to and from there each day. Rehearsals will be 5 days between the 7th and 24th November. Actors will be paid £100 per day for rehearsals. Actors will have every other Saturday off, all Sundays off, the 24th, 25th 26th, 31st  December and 1st of January off. 

Please send CV to rahrahtheatre@hotmail.com please state in your covering letter if you drive and are based in London.  

 

The characters

Cow and Evil Squire – Male Actor aged 20-45 years old. The Evil Squire is your typical Panto baddy very rich. The Cow is very grumpy partly because the actor playing it is annoyed they have drawn the short straw and is being made to dress up like a cow.

 

Dame Trott and Man/Woman of Mystery- Male or Female actress aged 25-45. Dame Trott is your typical larger than life pantomime dame.  The Man of Mystery or Woman of Mystery is a random super hero that appears with the magic beans. She/he is very tongue in cheek and the part is written as the actor wanting to change from their original character to something more fun/glamorous.

 

Jack /Jackie -  Female or Male Actor aged 20-35. She is a tom boy forever trying to please her mum but always getting things wrong.

JINGLE BELL SINGERS 

Rah Rah Theatre Company is currently seeking strong singers to join their ‘Jingle Bell Singers’ groups,  who will be performing a collection of ‘feel good’ Christmas songs with a comic story line. The show will be touring Theatres, Community Centres, Residential Homes, Sheltered Housing and Day Centres in London and the Home Counties from the 28th November to 30th December 2023.

We are looking for singers who feel comfortable singing solo, can sing in harmony, act, do basic dance moves and who can interact with audiences. Each troupe will consist of three singers.

Initial auditions will be via self tape with recalls taking place on the 20th and 21st of September.

Payment is per show and will vary from day to day according to bookings. Usual payment is £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 £100 per day for rehearsals. Actors will have every  Sunday off and the the 24th, 25th and 26th  December off.

Due to the types of venues we will be visiting, all performers must be vaccinated.

We are a charity theatre company who specialise in using theatre as a form of therapy and have been working within the elderly community for over 20 years. We see first hand the truth of the Arts Council statement, “Getting involved in creative activities in communities reduces loneliness, supports physical and mental health and wellbeing, sustains older people and helps to build and strengthen social ties.” Sharing in watching a show with music, comedy and drama is a perfect way for the elderly (especially those suffering with dementia) to reconnect and bring some much needed joy back into their lives. “A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly; but a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around”.
