The search is on to find a talented Swindon dancer to join cast of the David Walliams’ hit show Gangsta Granny when it comes to the Wyvern Theatre, from Tuesday 27 September to Saturday 1 October.
Birmingham Stage Company, the acclaimed producers of the Gangsta Granny are looking for a local girl dancer, aged 16 or 17, to play the small but important role of a young teenage dance competitor in the show.
The company are looking for a dancer who does not require a performance licence and therefore will be aged 16 or over by the end of June 2016.
Neal Foster, the show’s director, said: “This small part has been specifically written to create a great opportunity for a young dancer who wants to become professional or who is just starting out in the profession to gain valuable experience on stage with a professional company and receive a fantastic addition to her CV. The part requires a solo dance routine in a crucial scene of the play, providing a wonderful showcase for her talents”
Any 16 or 17 year old female dancers interested in being considered should email a demo video of her performing the short show piece to firstname.lastname@example.org
The video and audio files are available to view on the Gangsta Granny page of the Swindon Theatres website and applicants can e-mail email@example.com to have the files sent directly. The deadline for submitting applications is Monday 15 August.
The chosen dancer will be sent the video of the 2 minute dance she will be performing in the show so she can learn the choreography. She will be expected to perform in all Gangsta Granny performances both those in the daytime and evenings at the Wyvern Theatre and will be paid £21.38 expenses for each show.
