Join our company for The Taxidermist’s Daughter

We are looking for supernumeraries to take part in our 2022 production of Kate Mosse’s, The Taxidermist’s Daughter, directed by Róisín McBrinn in the Festival Theatre here at CFT.

Supernumerary actors are usually amateur performers who appear in crowd scenes or take non-speaking small parts. They work under professional direction to help create a believable scene. We are looking for actors to play male townsfolk, with a playing age of between 20 and 70. The play is set in 1912 and takes place in and around Chichester and the Sussex Marshes.

Anyone who is interested will need to attend an initial workshop/audition on Saturday 5 March 2022. Please email for more information or to confirm a place.

The commitment will involve some daytime and evening rehearsals in the weeks beginning 28 March and 4 April, (schedule to be confirmed), and then for all performances from 8 – 30 April 2022. The majority of performances are in the evening at 7.30pm, Monday to Saturday, plus a midweek and Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

All rehearsals and performances will take place at Chichester Festival Theatre.
