Casting Call - Meal One

We are casting for the part of Old Helbert in our upcoming production of Meal One.

We are looking for:

  • An actor with a strong (tenor) singing voice who can play keyboard/s
  • Playing age 40-50
  • A strong allrounder confident at working in an informal studio environment.

Meal One is an adaptation of Ivor Cutler’s iconic 1970s children’s book of the same name. The show is a co-production with Mind the Gap Theatre and is the tale of a boy, his mother, a plum tree and an extraordinary start to the day. 

It will be immersive, highly visual and part-sung, with a mix of live and recorded music composed by Felix Cross. The production will be directed by Alan Dix, Artistic Director of 509 Arts, and performed by a cast of three.
