Gary Clarke Company – Local Singers

Gary Clarke Company is on the look out for 4 local singers to make their own contribution to the touring production of WASTELAND, which will be coming to the MAC on 3rd and 4th April. WASTELAND is the highly acclaimed new production from choreographer Gary Clarke and sequel to the multi award-winning production COAL.

In 1994, hundreds of coal miners hung up their pit boots as coal mines all over the country were destroyed.  As were the tight knit working-class communities that surrounded them. This thrilling yet deeply touching new production takes a closer look at how 2 different generations coped in this era of radical upheaval.

They are looking for 4 local men aged 40+ who have a passion for singing to play the role of ex-coal miners in the show. No professional experience is necessary; however, they should have some experience of learning songs and singing in unison. The role will also involve some moving on and around the stage.

The singers will be supported throughout the process by acclaimed Musical Directors Steven Roberts and Charlie Rhodes who will work with everyone’s individual needs and abilities.

Music and learning tracks will be provided four weeks in advance of the singers’ intensive rehearsals, where participants will work with the company to learn the show.

Each participant will receive a food and travel allowance to cover rehearsals and performances, the dates and times are listed below


Intensive rehearsals:      Saturday 28 March, 10am-4pm, the MAC

Wednesday 1 April, 5.30pm-10pm, the MAC


Performances:                 Friday 3 April, 10am until end of day (incl. rehearsal, tech, dress, post show)
