This is an in-house script, adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas.
Roles are available for performers aged 11 - 70. Many roles are open to being played as either male or female. We are most interested in the best performer for the role.

There are also plenty of non-fight roles.

We welcome people of all backgrounds, levels of experience, ethnicities, appearance, accents etc, and are additionally very accustomed to working with neurodivergent creatives in our team, so please don't let any of these things hold you back.

As things stand at time of writing all actors will receive an equal share of money made from ticket sales for the performances (inclusive of streaming), as well as location-based character photoshoots, copies of all press featuring you, videos for show/ demo-reels, and references. We are also putting in an Arts Council bid, to "up" the financial payments to Equity rates, and if that is approved then everyone is automatically upgraded.
For those newer to acting; all credits with us (whether profit-share or "proper" rate) count towards Spotlight registrations allowing newer actors to professionally register and then apply for agents and bigger castings. The payments (however much it is) can also count towards your Equity membership application.
