Musicians Casting 2021

New Creations Collective are looking for a musician for their exciting brand-new production of The Secret Garden. The production is an outdoor show touring to open air theatres, parks and heritage sites across the South East England Region this summer.

Male Soloist Flautist

  • Excellent classical technique

  • Very good performer with natural acting ability

  • Some movement experience will be good as the musician will be used immersively at times interacting with the dancers.


Applicants must have at least 3 years of professional vocational training in classical music to play the original score commissioned for the production. The musician will be required to learn the music prior to rehearsals/performances and perform (without a score) in a live capacity.  All applicants must have very good natural acting ability as story telling is at the heart of the performance.

Applicants must be reliable, willing to work outdoors, fully committed to excellence and professionalism and passionate about the company’s chief principles and aims. Due to some more rural performance locations the ability to drive would be useful but is not essential. We are open to hearing from both experienced professionals and recent graduates.

Applicants MUST be available for the following dates. The addition of further performance dates is highly likely so we will therefore be asking cast members for first refusal on all dates between 3rd July-5th September.

Rehearsal Week 1 – 1st-5th June (Dancers only)
