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.
