GENERAL GUIDANCE FOR APPLICANTS
Generally, auditions for performers are held by invitation only for each production as occasion arises. Dancers in particular are usually expected to have at least three years professional experience in order to qualify for audition. Calls for dancers and actors are made here on the website as well as through industry channels such as Equity Job Information Service and Arts Council England's Arts Jobs mailing service. While we cannot guarantee to attend performances of work, performers are welcome to keep us informed of appearances by email or post.
