Horse + Bamboo Theatre are looking for a male performer/ puppeteer for their upcoming tour of Red Riding Hood. We are ideally looking for someone who has good puppetry skills (tabletop puppets), is funny both verbally and physically, is confident setting up and operating tech equipment as part of the show, and is generally a nice person to work with.

This show is a two hander, touring to a range of rural and small scale theatre venues. It is a re-tour of an existing show, and the female performer will be already familiar with the show. Applicants will need to be able to drive a large vehicle (not HGV), and will need to be physically strong as the get in and strike of the show can be physically demanding, and is done by performers.

Rehearsal will be for 2 weeks from the 4thMay (probably in Manchester- location TBC) and the tour will continue till the week of 8thJune. There is also a block of shows from 3-9thAugust. We would want performers to be able to commit to all sections of the tour.

Auditions will be on Tues 31st March in Manchester.

This is an equal opportunities role,  but we always particularly welcome applications from performers from a BME background.

Please send  a cover letter detailing relevant experience  - in particular, touring, puppetry and technical abilities – along with your with CV and headshot  to Alison@horseandbamboo.org to arrive no later than 17th March
