Gepubliceerd op: 18 juli 2022

Contract: part-time, repetities donderdagavond en zondag de hele dag
Vanaf: 18 Sept t/m 18 nov 2022
Plaats: Amsterdam


QETC is Amsterdam’s leading English-language theatre company. Founded by a small group of English-speaking theatre-lovers in Amsterdam the company celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022. Since 2002 we have been closely linked to the LGBTQ+ community. Our regular venue is the wonderful CC Amstel Theater, in the Diamantbuurt in De Pijp. Very large stage.

QETC produces high quality, English-language theatre and is run by talented contributors and professionals.

Being in English for a shorter run, this is a relativley low budget production compared to say De Graaf en Cornelissen/Stage Entertainment. Nevertheless, we have high standards and a great reputation. Our funding comes from ticket sales and public/private funds.

Age guide 20-35. Good actor/singer/dancer. Lithe body and a unique, individual look and charisma. Musical theatre training makes you a strong contender. Excellent English and possibly a German accent in English. Doesn’t have to be native English. Flexible attitude and lover of musicals.

The role has been made famous and won Oscars, Tony’s and Oliviers for Joel Gray, Alan Cumming and Eddy Redmayne. It’s one to get you noticed.

But this will be a brand new interpretation of the show, not derivative of any earlier production. Affinity with the LGBTQI+ community is an advantage, given the mix of performers already cast (gay, non-binary, trans, queer etc). We welcome applicants of all ethnicities, but only male actors as we already have a female alternate EMCEE. Passion for the project is first and foremost.
