Actors should be based in the Devon area because of the need to attend rehearsals and performances in the South Devon region including Brixham, Plymouth, Exeter, and Torquay
As things stand at time of writing all actors will receive an equal share of money made from ticket sales for the performances (inclusive of streaming), as well as character photoshoots, copies of all press featuring you, videos for show/ demo-reels, and references. We are also putting in an Arts Council bid, to “up” the financial payments to Equity rates, and if that is approved then everyone is automatically upgraded.
For those newer to acting; all credits with us (whether profit-share or “proper” rate) count towards Spotlight registrations allowing newer actors to professionally register and then apply for agents and bigger castings. The payments (however much it is) can also count towards your Equity membership application.
Rehearsals for this show take place on Wednesdays 7pm – 9/ 9.30pm, and Sundays 1pm – 4 / 4.30pm at Chestnut Community Centre, 1-3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA.
