SPANGLED 

MERCURY THEATRE WALES are now casting their forthcoming production of SPANGLED, a brand new audience-immersive show set in a Welsh nightclub in the early 1990s, when the UK clubbing culture exploded with House music rising to the fore and clubbers being introduced to new forms of recreational drugs. It has been devised and created by Mercury Theatre Wales and is Directed by Bethan Morgan. 

We are looking for a versatile ensemble of performers with good movement skills. All actors should be South Wales based. 

Rehearses: 8th - 30th April 2013 in Cardiff. 

Performs: 1st - 25th May 2013 Chapter Arts Centre Cardiff and Welsh tour. 

Agreement: Fee based contract in line with Equity/TMA agreements. 

Casting: Week commencing 18th February 2013 in Cardiff. 

Deadline for submissions: 16th February 2013.

Welcome to our new Mercury Theatre Wales group where we will be discussing, debating and sharing info about our work. Following a period of R&D and a very successful Incubator project at the WMC, our new production SPANGLED will begin rehearsals in April and tour in May, with the help of a grant from the Arts Council of Wales and support from Chapter Arts Centre. Please feel free to leave comments, questions and start conversations here!
