SWORD FIGHTERS - FEMALE OR MALE PERFORMERS SOUGHT.
18 to 70
Full Details of Job / Opportunity
We are currently auditioning for sword-fighters to join the cast of The Medieval Banquet.
Now celebrating our 46th year The Medieval Banquet takes place year-round in our permanent 450 seat theatre in the historic St Katharine Docks near Tower Hill.
We have a permanent cast of 9 performers ranging from Singers, Dancers, Musicians, Circus Artists and Sword-Fighters.
3 Month contracts available, with the opportunity to extend.
Contract start date: Mid Sept
Up to 8 performances a week
£380 per week
N.B. Sword- fighters must have an Advanced ADC, BASSC, APC qualification or equivalent.
(Experience with a broadsword is necessary. Sword and shield or sword and buckler is ideal).
The Medieval Banquet regularly has up to 3 sword fighters in the show who play the knights. The knights are a key part of our Medieval musical extravaganza and also join in the ensemble songs throughout the show. These roles have often been played by male performers in the past but we are equally eager to hear from both female and male performers for these roles.
All our cast are multi-skilled and any additional talents you may have are an advantage (eg playing an instrument, juggling, drumming, card tricks) this is an interactive show so we are always interested in hearing from people with talents that engage directly with the audience so please do mention your other skills at audition.
For the audition:-
(Unless you come as a pair/group we understand it is sometimes difficult to demonstrate your sword fighting skills. We ask that you be trained to the level listed above, which we will verify at a later date, so if you come alone you are welcome to use your audition to show your singing or other skills. If you have come as a pair/group and do want to show us a choreographed sword fighting demonstration piece as well we are always happy to see it).
Auditions will take place on various dates over the next 4 weeks so in the first instance please apply with your CV and photo and we will get in touch inviting successful applicants to audition.
Please apply now to be considered.
