We have cast an amazing Hrogthar, and all principal casting for Beowulf is now complete.
Now, finally, the hard work of planning and designing (so many props and costumes have to be designed to fit specific actors) can begin.
The coming week will involve workshopping and preparing for the show in full
Just as we thought we had it cast
***** Now Cast*****
Just as we thought we had it all cast at last, the actor due to take on the role of Hrothgar, has been gazumped on a house move due to take place tomorrow, and has had to go back upcountry - so we are casting again....
Please get in touch immediately to arrange an audition.
Beowulf: a theatre show, in Devon.
Danish King (or Queen) "Hrothgar" age 45-75. Can be played male or female, major, critical role to the show. All levels of experience welcome as always in our theatre company.
The theatre show Beowulf, is a 6th century mythological setting, written from the famous 10th century Saxon epic poem. Hrothgar is the ageing Danish ruler, whose famed mead hall is plagued by a terrible monster; Grendel.
Payment is open-book profitshare (we split the money earned from tickets between each cast and crew member equally, alongside a full breakdown of all tickets sold and any deductions made by venues) plus character photos/ show videos etc for portfolios.
This would rise to full Equity rates if Arts Council funding application is approved (still, of course, plus the photos and videos for portfolios).
Rehearsals are already underway , on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons in Brixham, Devon. We are looking to cast as soon as possible. Actor must be based in Devon, we cannot consider actors based outside the area because we need actors to be able to attend rehearsals and performances in person as these are live shows.
Performances are various Fridays and Saturdays spread between early November and early December, in Brixham, Plymouth, Exeter, Torquay, and filming (at Brixham) online to be streamed worldwide as part of the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival's digital section.
There may also be an additional performance of the first half, for a local school in Newton Abbott (currently in discussion).

We recently had a wonderful work experience student with us, from a school in Somerset - it went brilliantly and we cant wait to welcome him back - he is hoping to return to get involved with some of our shows next year.
