Project Hush

We need YOU!

Following on from our sell-out Mold Riots Production in 2019, in September 2020 we’re staging another site-specific show, Project Hush - in a co-production with Papertrail.

Our show will have a community cast and guest actors telling the story of those who worked at the Rhydymwyn munitions factory where key elements of the atomic bomb were developed.

We’re looking for volunteer actors, singers, designers, stage managers, backstage crew, wardrobe teams and photographers to join the Project Hush Company.

Shadow the Project Hush creative team?

If you are a budding designer, director, chorographer or producer, we would like to hear from you! We are looking for a team of people who will work alongside key members of the creative and production team. This opportunity will provide practical experience on a professional production at a world-class theatre.

As this is a voluntary position, we would discuss with successful applicants how best to use their time, however we would expect a minimum attendance of the equivalent of 1-2 rehearsals a week. Applicants must be 18+, live locally to Theatr Clwyd, and must be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in working in professional theatre.

We are keen to engage with Welsh speaking applicants. We are also eager to hear from disabled applicants, those who identify as BAME and other under-represented groups. Applicants must be 18+, live locally to Theatr Clwyd, and must be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in working in professional theatre.

If you are interested, please email our Community Producer, Alice Evans (alice.evans@theatrclwyd.com) by 5pm on Friday 20th March with the following information:

  • Up to 300 words on why you want to apply for one of these roles
  • Up to 300 words on any previous relevant experience
  • Your availability from May – October

Applications can be made in English or in Welsh and formatted by written word, video or audio file.

We will then invite you to a Workshop at Theatr Clwyd on Thursday 9 April. We will invite you to meet the team and have a chat on Wednesday 15 April.

To find out more, or perhaps you have a family member who has a connection with the munitions factory and you’d like to share your story with us, please get in touch with the Community Producer, Alice Evans.
