Exeter based performers & performer/musicians, Quirk Theatre


Quirk Theatre are looking for 3 Exeter based performers and performer/musicians of any gender, aged 18+, to join the ensemble for their new ACE funded, family Christmas production - an adaptation of The Velveteen Rabbit.

We’re looking for good ensemble players with a healthy sense of the ridiculous, able to multi-role in a fast-paced and playful environment, willing to generate ideas in the rehearsal room and contribute to the creation of the show. Must be able to improvise and be comfortable with audience participation. Puppetry experience is an advantage.

A strong singing voice is also desirable but not essential.

Please notify us if you play any instruments. 

** Quirk are committed to diverse casting, so welcome applications from all performers. Please let us know if you have any access needs in order to attend an audition. **


£481 per week or £100 for individual days worked- please see dates below
