CASTING CALL FROM VENTURE QUEST PRODUCTIONS!

Venture Quest Productions are looking for 5 actors to join the team for their Beatrix Potter Immersive Tea Party event. The show will be part of the Amersham Arts Festival in October: A festival for the community by the community.

Following the sold out performances at the Guernsey Literary Festival, Venture Quest Productions are bringing this wonderful community event to be enjoyed by local families using a team of local experienced actors.

The roles will require good physical skills and the ability to improvise in order to interact with the tea party audience. This is an opportunity for local actors to come together and produce a memorable event. Ideally, you need to be within commutable distance from Amersham.
