Call out for Yorkshire performers to 'Get Seen'

Sustained Theatre Artists Yorkshire (STAY) have announced details of a showcase event, 'Get Seen' on 20th July at West Yorkshire Playhouse which will give up and coming performers/artists the opportunity to perform a 10 minute snapshot of their work in front of casting agents and influential industry figures.

The event is part of the wider Open Season at West Yorkshire Playhouse and STAY Executive Director George Matheson commented:

"STAY's vision has always been focused around providing support and promotion for culturally diverse and minority artists and we're proud to be highlighting the professional talent we're cultivating during West Yorkshire Playhouse's season of youth and community performances."

Influential industry figures already confirmed include CidaCo's Anamaria Wills - a creative leader and consultant who coaches and mentors a number of creatives and professionals in some of the UK's leading cultural organisations, and Nicci Topping - Yorkshire-born experienced casting agent who has cast for films such as Northern Soul amongst others, numerous TV commercials, short films, dramas and theatre performances.

There are 8-10 slots available for artists/groups to apply for via an application form which can be found on the website. The deadline for applications is Friday 19th June at 5pm.

Those who are successful with their written applications will be invited to audition on Thursday 25th June and the chosen performers will be notified the following day and offered access to a rehearsal space from 1st - 19th July.

STAY is an organisation created to celebrate cultural diversity, therefore they strongly encourage minority artists to apply for the opportunity.
