SUMMARY

We are thrilled to be supporting SpitLip and Avalon as they hold Open Auditions in both London and Salford for the ongoing West End run of OPERATION MINCEMEAT at The Fortune Theatre. 

 

Seeking outstanding comedy triple-threat actors with leading vocals and highly competent movement skills.  This show is a fast-paced and character-driven comedy piece - we are looking for very experienced and dextrous comedy actors, preferably with improv and multi-role experience.  

 

Proficiency with accents essential, ability to rap a bonus.  We are also seeking covers and understudies for this production.

 

The roles are not solely limited to cisgender people; they are also open to transgender people, non-binary people and other people in the trans community.  We are committed to diverse, inclusive casting, seeking performers without regard to ethnicity, age, sexual orientation or gender identity.  

 

THE SHOW

“Hilarious tale makes Mincemeat out of its rivals...Before curtain I talked to a fan seeing this for the seventh time. I wondered why anyone would see the same show seven times. Now I know.”

Neil Armstrong, The Mail On Sunday

 

“The Brits have made the year’s funniest musical …Against the odds, the “Operation Mincemeat” gang has found its way to the big time.”

Peter Marks, The Washington Post

 

Garnering 67 five-star reviews and counting, Operation Mincemeat: A  New Musical is the best reviewed show in West End history.  The “hilarious new musical that rivals The Book of Mormon for laughs”  (Vogue), has recently extended its run for the seventh time.

 

The year is 1943 and we’re losing the war. Luckily, we’re about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse.

 

Singin’ in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding, Operation Mincemeat is the fast-paced, hilarious and unbelievable true story of the twisted secret mission that won us World War II. The question is, how did a well-dressed corpse wrong-foot Hitler? 

 

Operation Mincemeat won The Stage Debut Award for ‘Best Composer/Lyricist’ and the Off-West End Award for Best Musical Production and ‘Best Company Ensemble’.  Most recently, the musical picked up four WhatsOnStage Award nominations for ‘Best New Musical’, ‘Best Performer In A Musical’, ‘Best Supporting Performer In A Musical’ and ‘Best Graphic Design'.
