Oily Cart is world renowned for creating innovative, multi-sensory and highly interactive productions for the very young, and for young people with complex needs. We’re looking for new performers and puppeteers to join us on our new inclusive early years production ALL WRAPPED UP.

We are seeking two performers, one (identifying as male, female or non-binary) with a playing age of about 70 and up years old, and one performer (identifying as male/female or non-binary) with a playing age of about 18-30.

This opportunity is for performers who possess demonstrable puppetry experience, particularly shadow puppetry. Applicants must be adept at improvisation and physical theatre and have excellent singing voices. Performers should be prepared to develop close-up communication skills and should be excellent devisers and comfortable working within a collaborative process. Performers should be at ease working in a relaxed show environment performing for children with a range of different needs.
