Frankenstein: How To Make A Monsteris a Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy Production. The show premiered at Battersea Arts Centre in March 2018 to sell-out audiences and 5 star reviews. 

The production was made by members of the BAC Beatbox Academy - a participation project for 16-29 year olds which engages young people local to Battersea Arts Centre and has been running in the building for 10 years. Over a year and a half, the show was imagined and devised by an auditioned group of exceptional young artists. 

From July onwards, the show will be touring to large venues such as the Liverpool Everyman Theatre and Battersea Arts Centre's newly re-opened Grand Hall. 

In order to work flexibly with all the performers involved, we are looking to create a larger ensemble of touring artists who can perform the show. 

Who we are looking for

We are looking to cast 3 - 6 exceptional people to join the production 'performer pool.' You do not need to have professional stage experience, only to show talent.

  • Singers (who can beatbox or show ability to learn)
  • Beatboxers (who can sing or show ability to learn)

  • Comfortable with basic movement work
  • Open-minded, team-players who are interested in performing in a vocal collective
  • Able to commit to touring dates (NB we anticipate touring will occur within term times)
