THEATRE - UK based Performer to play 'Gepetto' in PINOCCHIO (apply by 29th May)



Nearly There Yet are looking for:

- a performer to play the part of ‘Gepetto’ for its half term run of Pinocchio at Jacksons Lane, London, this October and it’s Christmas run at Watermans, London.

The show has already been developed and shown at the ARC Stockton in December 2017, and at The Albany in 2018 but will be reworked with the new performer for 2019.

We are looking for a strong team player with strong physical and vocal presence. You will be working with three other performers for the duration so the ability to work in a group is paramount.

Your main interaction is with Pinocchio and the audience, but there are also some set pieces which are more physical/ visual. For the right candidate, training in areas such as the physical aspects will be provided.

The successful applicant will need to be comfortable working with text, have an understanding and experience of the devising process, strong performance presence and a willingness to play.

You will be working especially closely with the performer playing the role of Pinocchio.

Most importantly, you must be keen to work as part of the team both on stage and behind the scenes.

Nearly There Yet are keen to address the inequalities that exist within society and within the arts sector. Diverse representation on stage is important to us. We are therefore particularly keen to hear from applicants who are underrepresented in the arts.


Please send an introductory e-mail including any relevant experience and why you’d like to work with us, to by Wednesday 29th May at 10am.

**Deadline for applications: Wednesday 29th May**

Audition dates: 5th and 6th June with recalls on the 12th June.

Period of engagement: 7th – 26th October and 2nd -30th December 2019.

Pay: £550 per week + accom and travel if not London based.
