Wales Millennium Centre & National Theatre Wales

Directed by Nigel Jamieson

17-18 September 2016, Cardiff city centre


National Theatre Wales is casting for various roles in City of the Unexpected.


Cardiff will celebrate the centenary of one of its most well-known sons, Roald Dahl, with an extraordinary weekend-long event, showcasing both his distinctive voice and the jewels of the city’s buildings, parks and its people. The city will be transformed into a place where the laws of physics and civic predictability will give way to the laws of magic, mischief and the unexpected.


Professional performers will work alongside thousands of volunteers to create epic  outdoor events and intimate, unexpected moments throughout the city.


City of the Unexpected continues NTW’s tradition of collaborating with communities to create extraordinary theatre. All roles will involve aspects of working with non- professional performers and participants. We’re looking for generous company members who will enjoy working collaboratively and responsively.


If you’d like to be part of this spectacular production, have the specific experience outlined here, meet one of the below descriptions and are available for the relevant audition (if specified), rehearsal and performance dates then please send your CV, a little about yourself and your headshot to casting @ 

All rehearsals to take place between 22nd August and the 16th September
