We are currently looking for performers to take part in a costumed performance at the big Weekend In Cambridge on Saturday the 6th of July.
The performance will celebrate 150 years of the Cambridge Rules (the rules upon which todays current games was founded) and the Football Association’s 150th anniversary.
The performance will be staged on parkers piece and will illustrate what football would have been like before the rules were implemented.
Actors will need to physically fit, as it will involve running about for an hour. Knowledge of football would be an advantage. We are looking for about 14 actors in total, males and females welcome, (you will be depicting men) Actors will ideally be based in Cambridge or willing to travel. The piece will work around key events, but a fair amount of devising and audience engagement is likely.
Rehearsals will take place on the Saturday morning from 10am and the performance will be between 2pm and 3pm
Reasonable travel costs will be covered, lunch will be provided and paid a small fee. There will be also photos and footage of the performance and we are expecting good press coverage.
Any interested actors should get in touch ASAP. Please feel free to pass this information on to any other groups who may be interested in taking part.
