2024 Casting

We tour by canal, river and road to over 130 venues across the country, taking professional theatre to non-theatre venues.


This is a small-scale tour which requires actors to do get ins and get outs, travel in a transit van and navigate a 72 foot narrowboat (full training will be given). Please clearly state if you drive in your application. There will be a cast of four actor-musicians.

We are looking for someone to play Jennie Lee alongside multiple roles in our two different productions for our 2024 tour.

This actor must have the ability to do a strong Scottish accent

Born in 1929, Jennie Lee left her coal-mining family in Scotland to become Westminster’s youngest MP – so young that, as a woman, she couldn’t even vote for herself.


We are looking for a global majority artist to play Mira alongside multiple roles in our two different productions for our 2024 tour.

Mira is a social media influencer who has made money quickly allowing her to buy a huge house and some land in the countryside.

However, she feels out of place and finds it alienating, encountering people who are snobbish or judgemental. She grew up in a city, in a family where walking or countryside access wasn’t a priority. Will she be able to break down the barriers that prevent her from feeling welcome?


We are looking for a male identifying actor musician to complete our team of four.

This must be a versatile actor who has the ability to multi role in our two different productions for our 2024 tour.



The overall dates are: 11th March – 19th October 2024 (including paid holiday periods)


£575.00 per week (based on 6 days per week when on tour) with all tour related travel & accommodation paid.

Artistes are classed as self-employed and are fully responsible for all declarations necessary under statutory laws for Inland Revenue, National Insurance and Customs & Excise.


We will hold Zoom auditions in the first instance, followed by a recall in Marsden, West Yorkshire (we will pay a contribution towards this)


Via Spotlight.
