2018 TIE Tour of Italy - Actors Wanted
18 to 35
Full Details of Job / Opportunity
THEATRINO is EDUCO'S Theatre In Education drama programme, in collaboration with ACLE, which is a non-profit organisation endorsed by the Italian Ministry of Education, operating successfully for 33 years. The company promotes a student based teaching method and was the first in Italy to use drama to teach English to children through Theatre In Education (T.I.E.) with our touring programme, THEATRINO. We are looking for young, enthusiastic actors with T.I.E. experience to tour Italian schools presenting interactive English language shows supported by workshops. THEATRINO is now in its 24th year presenting interactive English Language shows supported by workshops.
We are selecting around 30 young, energetic performers with Theatre in Education experience and who love working with children to form 8 groups to tour across Italy. The entire THEATRINO repertoire (performed across the four tours) consists of 10 fairytales, 8 sketches, a musical workshop, graded drama-based language workshops and 3 ‘Pop Music and Culture’ workshops for various age groups. There are four different tours that cover this repertoire:
the Standard Tour (5 groups x 4 actors per group)
the Storytelling Workshop Tour (1 group x 3 Storytellers per group)
the Sketch and Workshop Tour (1 group x 4 actors per group)
the Pop Music and Culture Tour (1 group x two singers/musicians)
This is an exciting opportunity for performers with a love for T.I.E. and have a passion for working with children. Knowledge of the Italian language is not necessary.
Auditions are by invitation and will be held in London, UK on 4th November 2017. If unable to attend you will need to submit a showreel with your application.
All actors must be available from early January 2018 - early June (minimum). If hired, we provide a salary of €250 per week for new actors and €280 for returning actors whilst on tour (paid monthly), accommodation, car and petrol/travel costs and work insurance. A €50 contribution will be made towards arrival costs and €50 towards leaving costs at the end of tour.
This unique experience provides the opportunity to act, teach and travel Italy taking in the Italian culture. It is an invaluable opportunity for future careers and an experience never to be forgotten!
Our repertoire consists of fairytales for specified age groups, comedy sketch shows, storytelling, an interactive musical and interactive drama-based workshops for older students. Touring in groups of four, actors will perform English shows and co-ordinate class workshops for particular age groups.
Closing date: Friday 6th October 2017
