Emerald Isle Theatre Company is a Theatre–in–Education company which presents plays in English in secondary schools throughout Belgium and France. We are currently looking for young, enthusiastic native English –speaking actors (aged between 18 - 30) to take part in a tour of secondary schools in France and Belgium from November 2012 to May 2013.
Actors must be prepared to spend 7 months on tour. Wages around 300 € PW plus accommodation and transport during the tour provided.
Holydays: 2 weeks for Christmas, 1 week for Winter Mid-term break, 1 week for Easter Mid-term break.
Our plays have been written to be enjoyed, the emphasis being on fun, and on 'learning through participation '. Also included are small parts for students, and that, with lots of general audience participation, ensures students gain confidence in their ability to communicate with native English - speaking people. Each play is written in carefully structured language, vetted by practising English teachers.
We ask the actors to speak slowly and clearly. The abundance of visual action and repetition allows students of all abilities to understand.
Interviews are held in Dublin and London mid-August.
Auditions in Dublin only last week of August.
Please send your application with CV and headshots before 15th of July 2012.
