Little Blue Monster Productions is delighted to be touring this fantastic
Oliver Jeffers story on a national tour to theatres and Schools.
MUST BE A DRIVER: Please be aware that you MUST have a full, clean driving
licence due to the nature of this job and location of our company base.
Sadly, we are unable to consider non-drivers.
THE CONTRACT: Rehearsals begin on the 25th September 2017 and the tour
starts on the 14th October and runs to the 24th December. You will need to
be free for the duration of the contract. We will be touring to school &
theatre venues, and when we are in schools (which will be around 40% of this
tour) we also run follow-on drama workshops for the children
The initial audition will be on the 12th and 13th of September via skype
with a 2nd group audition on the 18th September if required.
ABOUT US: First of all, we love working with children! We specialise in
productions for children and family audiences and we are one of the leading
companies in our field. The team have spent the past 20 years producing
high-quality shows for children. Our shows are beautiful and we are very
proud of the productions we create, offering our young audience the perfect
introduction to live theatre. Our style is physical, highly interactive, and
incorporates beautiful puppetry, original music, and magical scenery. WHAT
WE’RE LOOKING FOR: Well, if you LOVE working with children, you’re already
well on the way! If you’re fun to be around, you’re getting even closer
still. We are looking for very special ‘all-rounders’ to join our company.
You will need to have a good general level of fitness as our shows are very
physical, great comedy skills, sing beautifully, dance well and keep smiling
in the face of adversity! We are a touring company, so please remember that
you need to be prepared for the inevitable rigours of touring; being away
from home, spending lots of time with the same faces, early starts, get ins,
get outs, lifting and carrying.
As this will be a new piece of work, we are looking for people who also love
devising, understand that there won’t be a script to work from, and you will
be expected to work hard on developing the characters outside the rehearsal
room as well as in it. You will also need to have experience, or a
willingness to learn, in operating a variety of puppets. If you are the kind
of person who needs to work from a completed script, then this project isn’t
for you I am afraid.
Finally, you must have a great deal of experience in working for children
(3 – 7 year olds), and your CV will reflect this. If you do LOVE working
with children, show us! This is a brilliant opportunity to work with a
fantastic company, so if you are prepared to roll up your sleeves, are not
afraid of hard work, have a brilliant sense of humour and want to be part of
an amazing adventure, then we’d love to hear from you.
SALARY: Rehearsal weeks: £300 per week
Touring weeks: £400 per week We also provide and pay for accommodation when
required throughout your contract.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO APPLY FOR THE JOB?: If you would like to be considered for
this role, then please email a covering letter, explaining why you’re the
right person for the job and clearly outlining your experience of working
with children along with your CV
