Illyria

  • Project Details
    Casting "Romeo And Juliet." Company states: "Illyria celebrates its 33rd season in 2024. Would you like to work for one of the longest established, most widely respected and highly acclaimed of the open-air theatre companies? If so, we'd like to hear from you. Illyria’s shows are very physical and demand very strong vocal skills. The productions are ensemble, no individual is the star. Actors need to be fearless in giving huge performances and, within given parameters, interacting freely with the audience.

    Each tour has a company of actors (in this production there will be 5) who work as a team. Everyone mucks in with everything, including stage-management, driving, costume/prop maintenance, radio/TV interviews, and most importantly get-ins & get-outs which involve lifting and assembling heavy steeldeck staging. No-one gets off lightly. All jobs are everyone’s jobs.

    Performances continue regardless of the weather. Building the stage, performing in the show, striking everything and packing the van again in the pouring rain and mud, how does that make you feel? Is that an honest answer? Or just what you think we want to hear? Everyone loves the sound of adventure, until they’re in one. So please think long and hard about this kind of work before applying.

    Touring with Illyria is not like indoor touring at all: because open-air shows demand greater physical and vocal energy and because the elements can all be against you. There are days when your get-in becomes laborious and muddy, the wind blows your voice away from the audience, or drowns it out completely, and your quick-changes into sodden costumes become an endless struggle. You can be colder, more tired, and wetter than you've ever dreamed possible. But for the right people the periodic hardships are outweighed by the balmy days, the shared experiences and the camaraderie. As a testament to this, during the last 32 years 75% of Illyria’s actors have returned for more! (Over 60% return for 3 seasons, 20% for 5 seasons or more!)"
