To apply please email outlining your relevant experience plus a CV and/or Spotlight link

Female Actor-musician required

Pirate Bonnie is a new show for children and family audiences funded by Arts Council England and Leeds Libraries.

The show is a welcoming, music-filled new play for 4-8 year-old pirates and their families.

Pirate Bonnie is looking for treasure – but no ordinary treasure, for she is no ordinary Pirate. The treasures she seeks are stories, the long-lost stories of swashbuckling Pirates.

The audience are greeted by Bonnie and invited on board her ship to join the crew, set sail and discover treasures. Each treasure recovered is a forgotten legend of a real female pirate. In typical Fidget Theatre style, the show is warm and witty with original songs and friendly interaction for children and their grown-ups who all become Bonnie’s ship-shape crew.

Pirate Bonnie will be touring to a mixture of theatre venues, libraries, rural community venues and arts festivals mainly in the north of England.

We are looking for an Actor-musician. Female, playing age 25-50

The performer playing Pirate Bonnie will have a strong singing voice, the ability to play the accordion, some puppetry skills and experience of managing audience participation in-role.

For this role we actively encourage applications from performers from underrepresented backgrounds.
