Illyria is now accepting casting applications for 2017.
Illyria celebrates its 26th season in 2017. Would you like to work for one of the longest established, most widely respected and highly acclaimed of the open-air theatre companies? If so we'd like to hear from you.
Illyria is proud to have adopted Equity’s Outdoor Touring Theatre Guidelines. This means we offer terms, conditions and pay approved by Equity – in fact we exceed the terms of the Guidelines. Please bear this in mind when choosing between Illyria and non-compliant companies who offer remunerations well below National Living Wage (eg £275 per week - which is illegal), no holiday pay (which is illegal), and up to a third or even less than the minimum set out in the Guidelines (eg £2500 for an entire 17-week season - which, for a 40+ hour week, is illegal).
We would like to hear from versatile actors (m/f) who are up for the challenge of outdoor touring. A DEMONSTRABLE love for small-scale touring and the company’s ensemble style is crucial. As it's so important that every applicant has genuinely understood what he/she is letting him/herself in for, submissions will ONLY be considered if accompanied by a *detailed* covering letter from the performer him/herself. Submissions without a detailed covering letter, or mass submissions of only photos and CVs, will not be considered.
HOW TO APPLY:
Please email your CV, headshot (or Spotlight etc link) and covering letter to Oliver Gray, Artistic Director of Illyria, at email@example.com with the word "CASTING" and the title of the show you are applying for in the title bar.
Please make a separate submission for each show you are applying for.
Please limit your attachment size to a maximum of 1Mb. Thank you.
