Formal Job Posting: Seeking Vocal Facilitator (Cork)
Please email email@example.com and you will be asked to supply a recorded audition for each role by 6pm 11th June, based on the supplied sides. Include a 200 word BIOGRAPHY, HEADSHOT and CV.
S y n o p s i s : Elizabeth has accepted her regrets and rapidly approaching old age, as the final chapter of her life, until she engages a stranger in a chance meeting. He challenges her to escape to a world where a lifetime can be lived in a few short hours, and a conversation about everything and nothing, in an airport lounge, becomes an epic, life changing, love story.
ELIZABETH. 63 years old. Expensively manicured in every way; she has spent her life keeping up appearances; but nothing too flashy, nothing to draw attention. She distracts herself from her fears and regrets, rather than faces them, and thus presents a nervous energy.
JIM. 55 years old. In formal suit and overcoat apparel, he is somewhat overweight, tall and strong, with a sense of being comfortable in his own skin. By nature he is a jovial and mischievous character. He is presently battling a sadness that threatens to overwhelm him, by escaping into a new reality.

Cllr. Kieran McCarthy's Community Talent Competition
Here are some of the team at the 2019 launch. We've been going since 2009 and this young people's talent competition has become a strong and vibrant event in the Cork calendar. Each year the team is strengthened not only by wonderful volunteers, but by the return of our talented young people as mentors to those who come after them. Our event is more than a competition, it is an opportunity to learn, to share, to express, to explore and to support, and be supported, within a creative community. Professional and amateurs together make the magic and realise the potential. If you're an arts professional looking to give back, or a community member looking to pay it forward this event is open to volunteers. Join us!
We will let you know as soon as we start planning for 2023.
