Have you ever wanted to perform on stage at Theatre Royal Stratford East?
Well, if you’re of African or Caribbean heritage and aged 18 to 55, now could be your chance.
The theatre, in Gerry Raffles Square, is looking for six men and three women to take on the roles of guests in a new show, Shebeen.
Participants will need to be available for all performances of the play, which will run from June 20 to July 7, as well as a workshop and two rehearsals.
Shebeen is set in Nottingham in 1968, and focuses on a Jamaican couple who are helping Caribbean migrants to have fun by hosting a forbidden party.
Those applying for a role will act as guests at the party, and take part in unchoreographed dancing and demonstrating general enjoyment.
