CASTING CALL



Exciting opportunity for paid work for Wigan's storytellers, artists and performers!


Darren Pritchard and The Old Courts are looking for five exceptional performers to perform in a Wigan remaking of a classic Darren Pritchard show!


Do you have something to say about the world around you?

Do you have an interesting story to tell? We want to hear from you!


We are looking for solo acts to be part of a uniquely special show staged in Wigan in March 2021. We are looking for singers, dancers, comedians, rappers, spoken word artists, jugglers, circus or variety acts or any other kind of performance talent that will blow us away. You might not have ever performed professionally before or might have performed in nightclubs, raves, festivals or in your friend’s front room. We are interested in your talent and anything goes!


We are looking for people from all backgrounds and ages. You will be from or be connected to Wigan and Leigh Borough.

The performance will be devised and will feature live performances (Cabaret style) with moments of honest personal storytelling – this will be created with Darren and the company in rehearsals.


Performers will be paid a rate of £500 per week over the course of three weeks.


If you are interested in being considered for the casting please send us a video of yourself performing your best talent (this can be filmed on your phone) and send us a short piece of writing (or film) about who you are, your story, and why you’d like to be considered for this show.


Please email jesso@theoldcourts.com for any further information or with your submissions. Admissions must reach us by 5pm Thursday 03/12/2020

This performance is part of the Moving Roots project. Rehearsals are scheduled to begin w/c 15/03/2021
