  • Radiant stage presence, charisma and the ability to perform in front of a very large audience;
  • Very strong improvisation abilities, a feel for comedy and strong listening skills for working in duos or trios;
  • Artists must be willing to step out of their normal working environment and perform in a type of show that has a completely different way of working to that of other companies;

Are you a solo performer, or an actor with experience in leading or secondary roles, seeking a new venue for your passion? If you're a team player with an open mind and a readiness to learn, there may be a place for you on stage in one of our existing or upcoming shows!
