Choreographer/Assistant Director, The Theatre Chipping Norton – d/l 26 June 2017

Project: Sleeping Beauty by Andrew Pollard. Directed by John Terry

Venue/Producer: The Theatre Chipping Norton

Overview: The Chipping Norton panto is one of the best loved and most respected ‘traditional’ pantomimes in the country – by which we mean no pop songs, no celebs, everything written, composed and designed from scratch. It mixes the folk rituals of panto with the storytelling and character work of a Christmas show.

This year, we are producing a newly commissioned version of Sleeping Beauty from Andrew Pollard, who wrote Robinson Crusoe for us last year. The first half is set in the Tudor court of Henry VIII and the second half 400 years later in the 1960’s. There is a cast of seven and three teams of four children.

We combine the roles of Assistant Director and Choreographer, so the role is a mixture of the following:

Choreographing the routines (NB, it’s quite a small stage!) – usually about 10-12 big numbers, with a varying degree of dance work.
Movement direction and character movement where required.
Creative input, working closely with me to bring the show together and know what’s working and what’s not!
Leading on working with the kids, or pippins as we call them.
And finally, taking a significant role in the understudy rehearsals – this is from the 15th to 18th November, during the daytimes of the first week of performances, and would involve choreography but also character tracks, blocking, lines etc, working alongside the composer and director.

We are looking for a creative individual with experience of running and managing their own arts projects. The ideal candidate will be pro-active and enthusiastic about widening inclusion in the arts. We are particularly interested in meeting people with an understanding and passion for the value of arts participation for a wide variety of community participants.

This work is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund as well as by West Berkshire Council and other trusts and foundations.
