Synopsis: 
What happens when two writers who have worked together for years start to hate each other? The team has won awards and made money. Harry Kent has saved and invested and now lives with his glamorous wife in a sun drenched luxury flat high above the Sussex coast, where the play is set. It is a hi tech paradise with only one snag: it's build on the site of an Ancient British sacrificial stone where black magic was practiced and now there are strange noises in the night. Paul Riggs has spent his fees on booze and birds, and he lives in dread of bookies' heavies. Harry wants to break the partnership that is Paul's lifeline, but Paul knows a sinister secret from Harry's past. They are therefore locked together in a dance from which murder seems the only escape and they have just plotted the perfect crime for their latest TV film.

Compensation / Rates: 

As this is a concert, and not a theatre production, this contract does not fall under Equity jurisdiction (as confirmed by Equity themselves). Therefore we will be hiring the best person for the tour regardless of Equity status.
Contracts:
Each soloist contract will include the following:
$1300/week
$45 per diem for each day when away from Lower Mainland
Accommodations when away from main home area
Everyone is welcome to be heard and we will be prioritizing highly qualified diverse artists in our casting.

If required for more than 2 performances, a new contract will be negotiated

Synopsis: 
This tour will be a concert revue of all Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most iconic repertoire in celebration of his upcoming 75th Birthday. This is a concert version and therefore the production will not be ‘staged’ nor choreographed - the focus will be on the drama of the voice. For this, we are looking for exceptional voices that can technically and dramatically manage the varied needs of this repertoire. The tour will visit roughly thirteen BC cities ranging from large Lower Mainland centres to smaller communities. Venues will range in size from 250 - 1200.

Please ONLY submit if you fit the above description. Seeking a black, MENA, or Indian actor who is skilled in handling Shakespeare. Othello is married and works as a General in the military. He is highly respected and deeply loves his wife.
