Our Rep Company is comprised predominantly of early-career actors with either the experience or the potential to work professionally as a performer. This group is the foundation of our ambition to build a creative hub for producing professional theatre in Rotherham.
All Rep Company work will be staged at Rotherham Underground. For appropriate shows, we will also tour to other small venues and fringe theatres to increase the visibility of our work and maximise exposure for Company members.
Company members will be able to build experience and show credits on their CVs, as well as continuing to hone their craft by practice and activity within a supportive collective. Productions will provide regular showcasing opportunities, where members’ work can be seen by Northern-based agents, casting directors and reviewers.
The Company will be led by our Artistic Director, Alice Bartlett, who be directing all forthcoming productions. Alice has over 15 years of mainstage directing experience, as well as teaching at HE level on courses recognised by the Federation of Drama Schools.
The Rep Company aims to produce a minimum of three productions a year. Casting will rotate between members according to interest and availability: it is a not a requirement for all members to be involved in all shows. Initially, most work will be undertaken on a profit-share basis, although we expect to be able to offer some paid opportunities over the course of the year. For profit-share productions, rehearsals will be arranged around members’ paid commitments, and usually confined to evenings or weekends.
We are currently recruiting Rep Company members based either within South Yorkshire or commuting distance from Rotherham. If you are interested in getting involved, or would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
