Rebecca Abbott, one of Shake the Dust’s Young Producers, has a London based opportunity for Shake the Dust participants, and anyone aged 13-21 interested in drama:

Following a successful run of our play, “The Passersby”, in summer 2010, SPID, an award-winning film and theatre company based in Ladbroke Grove, is looking to tour “The Passersby” to four London venues in late August – early September 2012.

The Passersby is a modern Good Samaritan story, from the perspective of everyday young people living in West London. The actors perform in close proximity to the audience, which challenges them to find a style more real and connected to their own life experiences.

We will be casting the production over the next week and are looking for young people of all ethnicities, aged 13-21 years old, although applications from people above this range will still be considered.

We will be looking for people to start immediately and commit to rehearsing every week until the performance in early September. We are based in Ladbroke Grove/Kensal Rise. This is an unpaid opportunity, but travel and lunch expenses will be covered. No experience necessary.
