CASTING CALLOUT FOR HEART OF CARDIFF

Sherman Theatre is looking for a team of actors to perform across Heart of Cardiff, a series of Audio Theatre Experiences inspired by the diverse communities of Cardiff.

Heart of Cardiff is a celebration of ordinary humans and the extraordinary things they do, a love letter to our magnificent city and the people who make it what it is.

It is likely that the actors selected will be working on multiple stories and in multiple roles across this extraordinary project and where we haven’t stipulated ethnicity, we encourage all ethnicities to apply. Sherman Theatre is particularly interested to hear from diverse performers.

NEW LITERARY DEPARTMENT AT SHERMAN THEATRE

Whilst we are completely committed to the establishment of a Literary team at the Sherman Theatre, it feels prudent in these uncertain times to temporarily suspend the recruitment process for both positions while the sector deals with the current situation.

Applications already received will continue to be included in the process, but we understand that these may have been written in pressurised circumstances, so we are happy for you to re-submit if you feel that would be better for you.

We also realise that some people may not have been able to submit an application due to dealing with the recent events, and therefore we are going to continue to accept applications.

As we are unclear as to how long this situation will last, we will be revisiting the specific timeline for the revised recruitment process as things become clearer and will post updates on the website and on our social media channels.

The Literary Team will be more important than ever as we begin to emerge from this situation in placing our writers front and centre of our future plans.

 

As part of a pilot programme supported by Arts Council Wales, Sherman Theatre wishes to appoint a full-time Literary Manager and a part-time Literary Associate on a fixed-term contract for one year to drive forward the development of writers in Wales at all stages of their career.
