Second Side Theatre Company seeks actors aged 18-25 to perform at Latitude Festival Teen Area in 2017.

Second Side Theatre Company are looking for 4 actors aged 18-25yrs to participate in a performance of new writing, as part of Culture Works East's creative and media activities in the Inbetweeners Teen Arena at Latitude Festival 2017 from 13th -16th July 2017.

The performance is aimed at a teen festival audience of 12-17yrs and will explore experiences of young people in contemporary UK. It will use a wide variety of performance skills to create a thought provoking and entertaining show.

Second Side was set up in 2009 and aims to work with young people wishing to pursue professional careers in the arts. We are looking for responsible, enthusiastic, committed individuals who are excited about delivering high quality work to a festival audience.

“This is the third year in a row we are taking a performance to Latitude Festival. What has impressed us in the past is young actors who want to work in the industry coming together and rehearsing a piece of theatre. We are looking for ambitious, committed, talented and adaptable performers”. (Ade Slack, Creative Director Second Side)

“We are really excited about welcoming Second Side Theatre Company back to the Inbetweeners Stage at Latitude Festival 2017. Not only I am excited about seeing the work they create, which will be performed daily on the Inbetweeners Area stage which we deliver in partnership with Access To Music but also to see the progression the young performers make during and after the opportunity.” Elli Chapman, Artistic Director Culture Works East

“I’m proud that with an area dedicated to teens, Latitude continues to offer opportunities for young artists to develop their talent, and for teen audiences to expand their experiences and explore their own creativity, both at the festival and beyond.” Sharon Reuben, Curator Children, Family and Schools Programme, Latitude Festival.

Auditions will take place at City College Norwich on Saturday 22nd and Monday 24th April. For the audition, you will need to prepare a one minute contemporary monologue and take part in an interview with the creative team. Please contact to arrange an audition with us.

Second Side is pleased to support #LoveTheatreDay  - a day long event celebrating theatre. Throughout the day you can follow the celebrations on Twitter.

During the day, there are 3 sub-hashtags (please note, it’s more important to have #LoveTheatreDay then the sub-hashtags):

  #BackStage (10am-12pm)  will offer audiences and other arts professionals a glimpse into how a production comes together in the weeks and months leading up to the big night.

#AskATheatre (3-5pm)  will offer a unique opportunity for theatre aficionados and aspiring actors to hear first-hand from the individuals and groups that make the magic happen.

#Showtime (7-10pm)  will give those who can’t make it to a theatre the chance to sit in the “virtual stalls” to experience the a performance, or several, via Twitter.

Second Side's contribution to the #LoveTheatreDay   is to share our new website with you. We hope you like it, we would love to hear your feedback. Also, please follow us on twitter @secondsidetc
