WASTELAND: 4 Pit men singers acquired for acclaimed theatrical production

Are you aged 40+? Do you have a passion for singing or are you part of a singing group? Are you interested in performing on stage as part of a new theatrical production?

The Gary Clarke Company is looking for four non-professional singers to join the cast of their upcoming show WASTELAND at the MAC in April 2020.

Touring for the first time after receiving rave reviews in its launch season, WASTELAND is an attempt at recapturing a pivotal time in British history when industrial Britain fell and a new subculture emerged. Sequel to the award-winning show COAL, acclaimed choreographer Gary Clarke brings another 1980s rave inspired dance show to the MAC, and you could be part of the cast as a singer.

4 local men for each tour venue will play the role of ex-coal miners. No professional experience is necessary; however, you should have experience of learning songs from memory and singing in unison. The role will involve some moving on and around the stage.

Singers will be supported throughout the process by acclaimed Musical Directors Steven Roberts and Charlie Rhodes, choreographer Gary Clarke and professional dance artist Alistair Goldsmith. The team will work with everyone’s individual needs and abilities. Music and learning tracks will be provided four weeks in advance of the choir intensive rehearsals, where participants will work with the company to learn the show. Each singer will receive a food and travel allowance to cover rehearsals and performances which will all take place here at the MAC.

Gary Clarke Company welcomes applications from all races, religions, backgrounds, sexualities and anyone who identifies as a man.
