Male Actors Needed

Hi everyone I'm Mikayla McCarthy I'm with The Ghost Room Theatre Company based in Newport.

Currently we are working on a play we have written called An Evening with Poe and are in need of 4 male actors. The play is a sort of murder mystery with our own ghost room spin on things, we like to perform in venues that fit the setting of the play, for example one of our past plays The Dragon's Backbone was set in a tavern and so we performed it in the upstairs of a social club. 

The play we are doing; An Evening with Poe is about a group of aristocrats who have gathered together sharing their love of Edgar Allan Poe and to hear the renowned story teller Miss Aveugle recite some of Poe's works, but things turn sour and someone loses their life while a set of jewels are stolen by the elusive thief The Raven and it is up to blind storyteller Miss Aveugle to deduce who both the murderer is and the identity of The Raven.

There is an element of improv. required, but not much as it's 95% script.

As I said we are looking for 4 male actors.

We rehearse in the centre of Newport so easy to get to, we cannot pay you or pay expenses, but this is an opportunity not to be missed, please message me for more details if you wish.

Head on over to our facebook page to find out more

Thank you

The Mr and Mrs Clark Medicine Show is in Newport next week as part of Comedy Port at the URBAN Shop Project in John Frost Square 12th and 13th October. Tickets from the Riverfront are just £5.
“Dangerous, Unruly, Hilarious, Unpredictable, Fun”

The Medicine Show, often run out of town, believed to be the bringer of disease or ill at ease, is the last bastion of hope for the balding, the infirm or the impotent. Mr and Mrs Clark's Medicine Show is an alternative to alternative therapy. It is a performative pill box for the love sick, the aching boned and the snake bitten. A show where you, the audience, are in our prescriptive minds and we want to help you all. We want to remedy your ailments or scare them clean away. In desperate times we cling to desperate measures.

“Great. Unpredicatble and so engaging – I was hooked from the start and enjoyed the mayhem.” – Audience feedback from Incling, Wales Millennium Centre August 2011.

Mr and Mrs Clark present their Medicine Show, developed through The Incubator Project at the Wales Millennium Centre and with the support of Miligi’s Cardiff and Ricky White.

It's on .....Friday 22nd July at the Old Bakery, 4 Commercial Road, Newport. An artist social with a little light cabaret and head bending nonsense. Doors open at there by 10pm if your coming and please remember this is a private house, so there are no signs, just ring the bell and give Dave £2. There is a small bar and you can bring your own economically sound! We are celebrating.......

We have had no real success in finding another space for workshop type activity as yet and but thanks to those who responded - well to George. Anyway we are putting on a night of performance and fun at the Old Bakery and we wondered if anyone wanted to get involved. It is a small space - Cabaret type venue but intimate and we think fun. I keep saying this doing it for it? We are aiming to produce a Cabaret of sorts...odd bits of work and anything anyone wants to contribute. There is a screen, DVD and projector and a PA system. Some sort of random Bingo or surrealist quiz would be good fun. Anyway if you are in the mood, wanna do something or just come to watch we are looking to do this on 22nd July from 8pm. All to be confirmed.

Let me know your thoughts gets lonely out here on our own, pretending to be horses.
