On the back of a successful second season, Eleven Arches, the production company behind Kynren – an epic tale of England, is already planning its third season, and the recruitment of new volunteers begins.
Show organisers say that Kynren’s phenomenal success is due to the involvement and commitment of members of the community who comprise the cast and crew; individuals who invest their time in the professional training and rehearsals demanded by a world-class production, who in return gain a sense of achievement, new skills, new friends and a community spirit which makes participating in the show such a magical experience.
For 2018, Eleven Arches is organising its recruitment drive through ‘Open Call’ sessions where anyone interested in joining as a volunteer will learn about all volunteering opportunities and meet members of the cast and crew, including the animal stars, to glean a sense of what being an ‘Archer’ can offer.
The first Open Calls will take place during the day on 9th and 16th September from 10am to 11.30am, and a second session from 12pm to 1.30pm as the team gears up for the final two performances later each evening.
These four Open Calls will include the exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes while the site is still fully functional.
There is no need to sign up, just arrive on site 10 minutes before the session that suits you. You will be able to park on site.
As the Open Calls include outdoor visits, comfortable footwear and outdoor clothing is recommended.
The session is open to members of the public of all ages, although to participate in next year’s show, children must be five years old by 30th June 2018.
If you are unable to make these dates, Eleven Arches will be hosting other Open Call sessions after the season closes, where you will be able to drop in and chat with existing Archers from each team.
All dates will be published in September on the Eleven Arches website www.elevenarches.org.
