Well Victor, I am a young aspiring actor myself who has made a non-profit community company. Our company is entirely COMMUNITY based. If this website has any policies about posting non-professional opportunities, I will happily delete the post about my gig.
Comment by Terry Victor on Wednesday

I am not after the gig, Travis. However I do think actors of whatever age should be paid for their labour. Don't you?

Comment by Clayton Travis on Wednesday
Hello Phil and Victor, sorry this opportunity is for young actors aged 16-25 hoping to gain experience this is stated at the beginning of my post.
Comment by Terry Victor on Wednesday

Well said, Phil Croskin. I presume that Top Notch will be selling tickets.

Unpaid Opportunity

Interesting how you place that oxymoron right at the end of your announcement.

Don't you think we have had enough of doing work for nothing?

We are looking for an actor (male or female) to play ‘Mole’ in our outdoor production of:


Auditions are to take place 29/05/19 6-10pm at Theatr Clwyd.

About us:

Top Knotch Theatre was created with the aim of helping non-professional young actors and creatives gain a foothold in the industry. Roles such as Director, Producer, Musical Director, Costume Designer are all filled by those under 25.

Rehearsals take place on Wednesday’s 6-10pm at Theatr Clwyd in Mold, North Wales, with more outdoor rehearsals to take place closer to the performance dates.


A book by Kenneth Grahame, ‘The Wind in the Willows’ focuses on a group of anthropomorphised animals (Rat, Mole, Badger, Otter and Toad) and their adventures among the Willows. Simultaneously, in between chapters, we follow a band of bank robbing Weasels highlighting their escapes from the Sheriff and their eventual heist of Toad Hall.

Performances will take place at Theatr Clwyd on August 1st and multiple outdoor venues from the 2nd – 5th August.


We are looking for a male or female actor to play the role of ‘Mole within our production of ‘The Wind in the Willows’. MUST BE AGED BETWEEN 16 AND 25. We are already a few weeks into rehearsals therefore somebody who can slot into our company and learn blocking fast is key.


Mole is a sensible animal, yet generous and extremely loyal to their friends. They appear shy and timid but begin to grow in confidence as the play progresses. Closest of all to Rat, the animal who teaches them the value of exploration after Mole leaves home in the first chapter.

To express an interest please email:

And we will send you all the information you need.

Auditions are to take place 29/05/19 6-10pm at Theatr Clwyd.

*Please note this is an unpaid opportunity*

Hey, sorry for double post but to clarify you can sign up to the workshop here:

Comment by yello brick on May 15, 2019 at 15:19

Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay

Sunday, 2 Jun - 11:00 - 13:00



We often make street games and are always looking for Actors with the particular skills required to be a performer within our work. We are offering this free workshop as a chance to meet new performers interested in the style of work yello brick makes. 

It also serves as an opportunity for performers to gain a greater understanding and develop skills for performing in immersive worlds, street games and interactive experiences. 

This is not an audition but a chance for us to get to know you and you us. This two hour workshop will cover a range of different elements including:

- character building

- world building

- game facilitation 

- audience interaction and in-world improvisation

We hope participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the this style of work, the role of the actor within it and the skills to develop further for working in this way.

This opportunity is for professional actors and those currently in training. 

Yello brick create meaningful experiences that place audiences at the centre of the story.

Our work is bold, challenging, curious and playfully disruptive.
