Job: (PAID) Tricolore Theatre Company: Male Actor Required!
About the job:
Tricolore Theatre Company is looking to cast a professional male actor (of any age & nationality but with excellent command of English), to join a team of three to mark the opening of a new Italian west-end restaurant chain close to Piccadilly Circus. You will perform three 5–6-minute comedy improvisations over the course of an evening on Thurs 1st, Friday 2nd, and Saturday 3rd July. Each impro will include part of an Italian-themed song and we ask that you learn the whole song off by heart. The songs are Mambo Italiano, That’s Amore & It’s Now or Never. Due to the short notice, we ask that the actor cast is off the book for the second rehearsal (19th June). The director is Kenneth Michaels who casts regularly for Actors Writers London and North London Actors groups.
You will be covering another actor in the second of a two-week trial period at the restaurant and, should it succeed, there would be the possibility to join a pool of actors and perform as & when you are available.
The actors will be dressed as a Manageress, Waitress, Kitchen Porter (your role), and a Chef.
We are asking that you have some experience / feel comfortable doing pre-rehearsed comedy improvisations for diners. You should also be able to sing well (but not necessarily be musical theatre trained) and be comfortable with choral singing.
