Auditions ~ Life in The Venue

Clinic Media are holding auditions for one actor to join their upcoming production Life in The Venue at The Everyman, Cork in July.

After 2 residencies in the Theatre Development Centre (TDC) during 2011, Life in The Venue is transferring to The Everyman as the first in their series of Cork Theatre Shorts, from July 4th-7th. This comedy-drama follows the intricate lives of the ushers working in ‘The Venue’.

The production will be devised with the director and cast during rehearsals, and the performances will be largely improvised. We are looking for an actor to join our ensemble with experience in improvisation and devising.

As the character will be created during the devising process, we are inviting male and female performers with a playing age of mid 20’s to early 30’s to apply.

Please send a CV and Headshot by email
to book an audition slot.

Auditions will take place on Wednesday 30th of May between 1PM-6PM.
A workshop call-back will take place on Thursday 31st of May from 2PM-4PM.

Rehearsals will be throughout June with a full day required on Saturday June 2nd.

Please take note that this is an unpaid position.

Clinic announce Life in The Venue in The Everyman

Clinic Media are delighted to announce that they will be producing Life in The Venue in The Everyman this July.

After Cork actress, Mary-Lou Mc Carthy brought her idea for Life in The Venue to Clinic Media an agreement was made that Mary-Lou would produce the development alongside Clinic’s Artistic Director, Eoin O hAnnrachain. That development took place throughout 2011 and included two residencies in Corcadorca‘s Theatre Development Centre, Triskel Christchurch. This research and development was made possible by the award of a Project Scheme Award from the Cork City Council Arts Office.

Then recently appointed Artistic Director of The Everyman, Michael Barker-Caven, attended the second showing of work in progress in the TDC in December 2011, and following some discussions between Michael, Mary-Lou and Eoin an agreement was reached to programme Life in The Venue as the first production in The Everyman’s new initiative Cork Theatre Shorts.

This production will see Eoin continue as director and will be produced by Mary-Lou and Eoin for Clinic Media.
