We are currently casting for BABA YAGA which will be created and shown at The Hullabaloo, Theatre Hullabaloo’s new purpose-designed venue for children and families, for Easter 2020. It is then our ambition to tour it nationally in 2021. We are looking for three performers to play the parts of Boy, Girl and Baba Yaga / Watch Woman:

  • One Performer to play: Boy
  • One Performer to play: Girl

Both roles require physically skilled and sensitive actors who have playful, childlike qualities. A strong singing voice and musicality is also an advantage.

  • One Performer to play: Baba Yaga / Watch Woman / Other characters

This role requires an experienced and physically skilled performer who has worked with mask and puppetry.

All performers need to have experience of making/performing work for schools and family audiences.

Both companies are ITC members and all fees, subsistence etc are in line with ITC / Equity agreements. We actively encourage applications from artists of colour and also from performers from other communities currently underrepresented in our work. All performers and creatives are DBS checked as part of normal employment procedure.

To apply, please submit a CV and headshot indicating which role you would like to be considered for, to Fiona Goudie-Hunter, by 16th December 2019.

Theatre Hullabaloo and Action Transport Theatre are both National Portfolio Organisations of Arts Council England.
