Illyria's 2013 season is now fully cast. We are no longer accepting applications.
The next round of casting will be in March 2014 for our 2014 season. From 1 March ONLY we would like to hear from versatile actors (m/f) who are up for the challenge of a summer on the road with Illyria. A demonstrable love for small-scale touring and the company’s ensemble style is crucial. It's not enough for your covering letter to say "I love small-scale touring and Illyria's ensemble style" - your CV needs to prove it and your covering letter needs to support it.
Illyria has adopted Equity's outdoor touring theatre guidelines. Please bear this in mind when choosing between Illyria and other outdoor touring companies who offer remunerations well below NMW and up to a third or even less than the minimum set out in the guidelines.
Even if you have applied unsuccessfully in the past please do apply again: Illyria does not keep actors' details on file because your availability will differ from year to year and your skills and experience are likely to grow. We believe it is more respectful to assess you on up-to-date information than to fob you off with a lie so widely used it's almost proverbial.
Email applications ONLY will be considered. Applications should include photo(s) and up-to-date CV and/or link to Spotlight/CCP (or other) profile. Applications without a detailed covering letter will not be considered.
Please send to the following email address: email@example.com . This address will bounce emails larger than 3Mb. A photo one tenth of this size is easily big enough - and you will score more brownie-points for not constipating our inbox.
Please do not telephone with casting enquiries at any time as unfettered rage sometimes offends. Thank you.
