'To the Ocean'
The Greenhouse Theatre

  • Project Details
    Casting "To the Ocean," a modern re-telling of the Selkie myth. A play with songs, the show is our headline show for the summer and will explore our relationship with myth, magic, and legend, as well as with family, the ocean, and the natural world around us. It will lean heavily on Celtic traditions of folk music and storytelling. More information about the show can be found in the information pack linked below.

    As well as the specific elements for each role, we are looking for engaging, personable actors who are both strong musicians and strong storytellers, and who have the following qualities:

    Strong and confident singers, with on-stage experience of performing with musical instruments. We’re particularly excited to hear from musicians who play more than one instrument to a competent performance level. Musicians and singers with experience composing, improvising, and/or devising music, and picking up music quickly, by ear. Particular experience with folk and trad music is desirable, but not essential.

    As this show is based on traditional myths, we are also looking for performers with experience in storytelling, and with some experience with devising processes. As well as these practical skills, we are seeking performers who have an interest in eco-theatre and improving the sustainability of their practice. Performers should be personable and friendly, with a willingness to engage audiences in meaningful discussion about the show, the project, and the climate crisis more generally. Excitement to play an active part in The Greenhouse’s internal community, and to get stuck in and sink their teeth in to the project.

    Most importantly, we are looking for team players who love creative storytelling and are passionate about making impactful performances.

    Production states: "The Greenhouse is the UK’s first zero-waste theatre. We create top-quality entertainment that tackles the climate crisis, being delivered and created in a radically sustainable way. It’s made for the young and curious, who are looking for entertainment experiences that align with their values and reflect the world they want to live in, while remaining unique and affordable.

    In 2023, The Greenhouse will undertake its most ambitious project yet, a tour to 3 locations across London. A core part of this will be our headline show, To the Ocean, which will perform a week of previews in our first location, and then at 7 p.m. every day (except Tuesdays) in locations 2 and 3."
