Casting Callout for Performers for (Off) White

The Artground is embarking on an exciting collaboration with renowned UK theatre company Catherine Wheels and are looking for performers for an upcoming production in 2024.

The Collaboration:

The Artground will be working with director Gill Robertson to adapt the critically acclaimed Catherine Wheels’ play, WHITE, an original story specifically for 2 - 4 years . Titled (Off) White : a new Singapore production of White by Catherine Wheels, co-directed with Ian Loy, this adapted production will feature local talent and be performed at TAG’s very own WhiteBox.

About WHITE (the original play):

Welcome to the world of White. Full of birdsong and birdhouses, it gleams and dazzles and shines in the night. Two friends look after the birdhouses and make sure the eggs stay safe. The world is bright, ordered and white. But high up in the trees, all is not white. Colour appears. First red… then yellow… then blue…
White is a playful, highly visual show for very young children and is a perfect first time theatre experience. Catherine Wheels is an award-winning, internationally acclaimed children’s theatre company.

Casting Requirements

We are looking for 2 pairs of performers (1 pair of female and 1 pair of male) to play the parts of Cotton and Wrinkle who live in a white world and look after eggs.  The show has few words so it needs strong, emotionally honest and expressive performers. They should be happy to interact with the audience of children.   

Wrinkle - Male/ Female actor/dancer aged between 35-65 years . Wrinkle is wise, a little too proper and has a twinkle in his/her eyes. 

Cotton - Male/ Female actor/dancer aged between 20-50 years. Cotton is earnest and almost goofy. 

Actors will need to commit to stated rehearsals and show dates below.
