Audition Call Out for The Saboteur

The Bristol Improv Theatre is looking to cast 5 or 6 Bristol-based improvisers to work with visiting Director Jim Fishwick (Jetpack Theatre, Improv Theatre Sydney, Academy of Improvisation, Impro Melbourne, New Zealand Improv Festival, Only Connect) to perform in a unique improvised show inspired by the wildly popular BBC TV Series “The Traitors”.

We are looking for confident improv performers who:

  • Have a minimum of 2-3 years of experience performing improv (theatre or comedy)
  • Have experience of performing improv on stage with other performers they have only just met or haven’t had regular rehearsals with
  • Have a good technical understanding of improv skills for performance
  • Are available for the rehearsal and show on the 14th of June 2024 at the Bristol Improv Theatre
    • Rehearsal: 14:00 – 18:00
    • Show: 19:00 – 22:00

Auditions will be held on Saturday the 1st of June 2024 from 10:00 – 11:30. This is not an open audition: to apply for an audition place please fill out this form by midnight on Monday the 27th May. You will hear back on Tuesday the 28th of May if you have been selected to audition.

If you can’t make the audition you are still welcome to apply, but please note that provision of an alternative audition time is at the discretion of the casting director.

Performers will be paid a fee of £50 for the rehearsal and performance. The audition is not paid.

About The Saboteur

Six performers are all working hard to put on a good improv show. Well, almost all of them. One of them is trying to sabotage the show without getting caught. Will The Saboteur be unmasked before the evening is ruined?

It’s a reality television show on stage, for fans of Whodunnits and Whose Line alike. It’s devious. It’s hilarious. It’s thrilling. It’s The Saboteur. Good luck.

Fresh from hit seasons in Australia and New Zealand, join us for a high-stakes, interactive evening of subterfuge, treachery, backstabbing, and laughs!
