We will accept general submissions from actors at any time of the year via email or by post, however the majority of our casting is done in January - March. Due to the high volume of actor CVs that we receive each year we are unable to respond to every submission individually. We will keep CVs in our database for 24 months after which time we welcome actors to resubmit. We will contact individuals if we feel that there is a role available that may be suitable for them.
Auditions for the company are either held in Worcester at the Swan Theatre or in London at a reputable studio space or venue.
Below, we have prepared some guidance on the submissions process which will hopefully answer any queries you may have before submitting your CV to us.
WHO SHOULD YOU SEND YOUR CV TO?
All CV submissions should be made to the Artistic Director,
SHOULD YOU INCLUDE A COVERING LETTER?
Covering letters are welcome but please try to keep them concise and to the point. A short introduction to you and your work contained within a paragraph will suffice.
should headshots be included?
All CVs should have a colour headshot included on the same page. If you are sending a separate headshot or 8x10 photograph then please make sure that your name and contact details are included on the reverse.

Meet & Greet Days
Our first Meet & Greet Days were held on the 5th & 6th September at Huntingdon Hall. We were delighted to be able to sit down and have informal chats with actors, writers, directors, designers and other creatives, and have an honest exchange of ideas.
We were so pleased with how the days went that we will be holding further days in the new year. Please check back regularly for more information on dates, times and how to be a part of the upcoming days.
