Work With Us
Work? Yes. Get paid? Yes, but very little.
With a track record of critically successful productions, we offer experienced actors exposure in one of the world's greatest
theatre festivals and experience for those setting out on a career onstage or backstage. We offer cast and crew guaranteed but minimal payment, with the possibility of additional profit share if the plays are successful.
Do you want to contribute to the making of two great productions? The producer / director needs an assistant to work on the administrative and marketing side of Casanova Dreaming and Volpone at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. This would require 6 - 8 hours a week, suited to your schedule, between now and August undertaking a range of tasks, from co-ordinating rehearsal schedules to promoting the shows through social and other media. You need a confident, outgoing personality with an attention to detail and ability to handle different tasks. An excellent opportunity for a student or recent graduate who wants to work behind the scenes in the entertainment business. A small fee is available. Contact us (email / phone below) if interested.
Stagehands / Understudies
We will need stagehands for both Casanova Dreaming and Volpone in late July and most of August. Responsibility will be primarily moving sets and props on and off stage, but may extend to assisting with costumes, lights and all the last-minute issues that arise in a Fringe production. Stagehands with some acting experience may be asked to understudy but there is no guarantee of appearing in a performance.
Casanova Dreaming hours are 1.30 to 3.30 pm, Volpone 5.30 to 9.30pm. Schedule can be daily or two or three days a week. There is very minimal pay - the reward is experience more than an income, but as you work with a group that has a track record of Fringe successes we are sure you will learn a lot and have fun while doing so. Best suited for people who want to get experience in theatre, the only requirements are a willingness to turn your hand to almost any task and reliability. Contact us (email / phone below) if interested.
We are looking for someone to source / create the costumes required for Volpone.
Set in the late 19th century, with 13 actors (m/f) wearing more than 20 costumes from that time. A limited budget is available for materials and labour and support will be given by the production team. Contact us (email / phone below) if interested.
Actors / Understudies
We are not currently looking
for actors for our 2018 Fringe productions. However, with 19 actors (m/f) appearing in two shows, it is possible that someone may have to drop out. We are putting together a list of understudies and will give priority to those who will double as stagehands (see above). Contact us (email / phone below) if interested.
Arbery Productions is based in Edinburgh, with most rehearsals and all performances taking place in the centre of the city. Occasional meetings and rehearsals take place in the suburbs.
We do not pay travel expenses but we do provide tea, coffee and the occasional Tunnock's cake.
