Off-stage Skin Performers – In the Night Garden Live
intu Trafford Centre, Manchester

Minor Entertainment was created in 2009 to produce spectacular family theatre events in unique spaces. Over the last eight years our first production, In the Night Garden Live (ItNGL), has toured across the UK in a purpose built inflatable theatre and has been seen by over 900,000 people. In 2018, ItNGL is touring again and we require Off-Stage Skin Performers for performances in Manchester.

Further information about the show can be found at the event website: www.nightgardenlive.com

About the role

Minor Entertainment is recruiting skin performers for our Front of House ‘Meet a Character’ Experience (MaC). Ticketed family groups can meet their favourite character – Igglepiggle or Upsy Daisy – in a private 2 to 3 minute meeting.

We’re looking for performers with experience of working in full character costume. In order to fit our costumes, performers must be of slim build and between 5’1’’ and 5’5’’ in height. We particularly welcome applications from performers who have previously worked with children.

We’re looking for performers with excellent availability to work throughout the performance period. On each performance day there are 4 performances at 10:00, 12:00, 14.00 and 16.00. MaC sessions take place directly after each show for approximately 1 – 1.5 hours. Your normal working hours on a standard four-show day will be approximately 10:15 – 18:15.

All performers be required for training and costume fitting on Friday 27 July 2018 and need to be available for work until Sunday 19 August 2018. Performances start on Saturday 28 July 2018.
