AUGUST 012- CASTING CALL August 012 are casting their next production, OF MICE AND MEN, opening in October 2017 in Chapter.
We will be working with the play text by Steinbeck himself but also passages from the novel.
We have joined forces with Hijinx theatre company to cast a disabled actor to play Lennie Small. Mathilde Lopez will be directing, working with an excellent creative team made of regular and new collaborators.
Rehearsals are 18th September-17th October 2017 The show opens on 18th October and will be running until 28th October 2017
Some roles are already cast -Lennie Small and Slim- but we are still looking for:

-A male actor, 40/50 years old, black/mixed race, to play Crooks and other male and female characters
You’ll need to be happy doubling and tripling characters and interested in devising.
We will research a stage language somewhere between documentary realism and the Bible, with echoes of Sergio Leone and Little House on the Prairie.
Auditions will take place at The Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff on Thursday 17th August all day and Friday 18th August in the morning.
Fee meets Equity minimum. Actors should be Cardiff based unless they are willing to fund their own re location for the project. The project is supported by Arts Council of Wales and Hijinx Theatre Company.

Last 3 chances to see Mercury Theatre Wales's 35 TIMES - Tonight until Saturday 15th July 7.30pm Chapter Arts Centre.
Here's a lovely review from earlier in the week...
Casting Call: We Made This
The Willow Globe has, amongst other things, become a secret little hub for actors to come and play in a glorious place. It is 1/3 the size of Shakespeare's Globe and planted of living willow. This weekend we have the renowned Factory Theatre Company bringing a one time (gender and age blind) performance of Macbeth. There will be an open rehearsal included in the (mid-Wales) ticket price. The drive here is stunning, the place is stunning and the show will be really exciting. If you can I recommend filling a car and coming along (but I recommend booking ) http://www.shakespearelink.co.uk/event/77/Macbeth/
Casting call: Light Ladd & Emberton
Mercury Theatre Wales's new show 35 TIMES opens Thursday 29th June - raising awareness of Domestic Abuse.
Grants Available for Actor Parents and their Children
The Actors' Children's Trust (www.actorschildren.org) is in the fortunate position of being able to increase its grants and support a lot more people. We fund actor-parents, where acting has been the main part of your professional career. Whilst most charities only give grants when you are unable to work, ACT knows that this isn't enough.
A depressing number of actors are forced to quit the profession when they become parents, simply because life becomes impossible. Earnings are too low and too unpredictable to organise and fund regular childcare. 'Free hours' barely exist for actors' unsocial work time. Schedules get changed at the last minute, meaning sudden needs for extra childcare. ACT is delighted that our childcare grants are helping actor-parents stay in the profession they love. Some parents welcome a monthly payment (e.g. £100 to £400), while others find a lump sum best at the start of a new job such as a tour.
Applications are processed within a month (or a few days in the case of crisis funding), and support can be one-off or continue for some years. Please help us spread the word about this resource for actor families by telling other actors. Also follows us on Twitter @ActorsChildren
ACT can help you with the following costs:
ACT does not pay for private education or private tutors.
Please do get in touch: email@example.com 020 7636 7868
We first check eligibility (usually just by looking at your CV if you are on Spotlight) and we usually fund people whose household income is under £40,000.
