Birmingham Stage Company

With three new shows coming up, we have to cast 27 actors before the end of July. I have to confess that casting is one of my least favourite activities: it's very difficult, often boring and terrifyingly important. If you get it wrong, the consequences are like being trapped in a speeding train with no brakes - there is no way of avoiding the crash. Thankfully, I would say that more than 95% of the time we get it absolutely right: and for this reason casting is at the very top of our priorities. Yet casting three shows, each needing about ten actors, in four months? My head is already in my hands!

All three shows will be on our casting page soon.
