New youth theatre company casting for young actor and actress to play lead roles.

Candace Wait, the founder of Drama Darlings, Durban’s new youth theatre company, is casting for a young actor and actress to play the leads in her new primary schools touring production.

The work will be staged during the second and third school terms and the July holidays. Rehearsals begin early next month.

Actors must be 17 years or over and have completed schooling. Those wishing to be considered should be able to speak English fluently and must be able to improvise both physically and verbally during rehearsal with the director and cast. The ability to sing would be an advantage as would the ability to respond ”appropriately to sometimes excited and voluble young audiences”.

Professional experience would be an advantage. All those auditioning are asked to wear rehearsal clothing and a head-and shoulders pic.

To apply for an audition or for more information contact 073 605 3421 between 08h00 and 17h00 no later than February 1.
