We are currently holding open auditions for professional performers to join our established Constable Care event team. This includes performing puppetry, live performances and mascot appearances at community events, as well as facilitating 'Lost Child Points' when required.
We are looking for versatile performers, as there may be opportunities to move to our main performance ensemble when positions become available. Constable Care's main performance ensemble encompasses delivering theatre-in-education programs, including interactive Forum Theatre in high schools and delivering puppetry and live performances to primary school students, as well as the opportunity to tour regionally.
The successful applicant will:
Be aged between 21-35
Have attended drama school and have professional acting experience
Have the ability to work in a number of theatrical styles and play a variety of characters

Enjoy travel – the successful applicant needs to be available for touring work, travelling by vehicle or plane to performance venues throughout WA
Have an understanding of puppetry (desirable)
Hold a tertiary qualification in Theatre (desirable)
Being a part of our performance team provides a unique opportunity to further develop an enormous range of performance skills in a demanding but well-paid creative environment - working in a number of different theatrical styles, playing multiple characters per show.
As performers you will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic and challenging environment, and be part of a fun, high-energy performing arts organisation that makes a real difference in the community. As artists you will be contributing to a creative process that uses theatre as a tool to effect social and personal change for young audiences and participants. Our actors are regularly called on to appear at major Perth events, community forums and activities.
Applications are highly encouraged from experienced performers of all backgrounds, including of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds and of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
Location: Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Auditions and interviews will be held in late November, and require a monologue + some prepared scenes. Rehearsals and training commence March/April 2017.
We are initially offering casual contracts to join our Events Team, with the view to offering fixed term, part-time contracts as positions become available in our core Performance Ensemble.
