Community Cast wanted for giant outdoor Theatre Event

Tuesday, 5 February 2019

Bradford-based theatre company, Mind the Gap, is seeking an integrated community cast of over 100 local people in West Yorkshire for their new outdoor theatre event in April.

Actors, singers, dancers, performers of all abilities and experience are sought to take supporting roles in the new production ZARA which plays at The Piece Hall, Halifax on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th April.


Mind the Gap (MTG) is Europe's leading learning disability theatre company. The company is currently celebrating its 30th year

The company is also looking for people to help with the production backstage - working with film, audience management, cast support, and more.

"This is a great opportunity for individuals and groups interested in theatre, performance, and technical production to work on a high-profile, professional event," says Chris Singleton, Associate Artist at Mind the Gap.

"Those involved will have the chance to make positive connections and become a part of a network of respected organisations such as Walk the Plank and Emergency Exit Arts - and of course Mind the Gap."

Featuring a giant baby, 3D projection mapping, and an original music score, ZARA will perform in only two venues – Halifax Piece Hall, Yorkshire in April and Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Southwark, London in May.

If you are interested in taking part, you can register your interest and meet some of the team - no registration necessary, just turn up:

Friday 8th February from 6pm to 7pm Caygill Suite, The Piece Hall Halifax

Saturday 9th February from 3.30pm to 4.30pm Caygill Suite, The Piece Hall Halifax

Caygill Suite is fully accessible with lift access
