Casting Call for ‘Checkpoint’

Organiser: Saito Hawkins

Startled Cat! Productions has begun casting for their black-comic satire ‘Checkpoint’ to premiere at this Summer’s Edinburgh Fringe!

This is a PROFIT SHARE opportunity, meaning all takings from the box office in excess of venue-hire costs will be shared equally amongst company members. Expenses including travel to/from Edinburgh, and accommodation for the duration of the run will be provided, as required.

It’s a fringe production in a small-scale venue, so please bear in mind our margins won’t be massive, however this is a fantastic opportunity for performers to be part of our exciting new collaboration in an internationally-renowned fringe festival.

SHOW DATES: 1st-17th August 2019

Set in a time of hard borders and systematic segregation an enigmatic stranger, Roman, attempts to bluff and bribe his way past two incompetent border-guards…

ROMAN – trespasser/’covert-inspector’
CAPTAIN SCHULZ – officious border guard
LIEUTENANT OZICK – fresh-faced rookie

If you’re an energetic performer with a nimble wit or a comic knack and want to be considered for a part please contact us, including details of your acting experience so far at:

CASTING DATES: Thurs. 7th, Fri. 8th March (Bristol)

The play will run for two weeks from 1st-17th August so availability throughout this period is a MUST.
