Kaaitheater and Ant Hampton are looking for young actors (8>11Y)

Do you have or do you know children who love to act?

Would you like to see them ascend the stage in a funny and bewildering performance about the state of the world? This is the perfect chance to sign them up.

We are looking for 8 > 11 year olds to perform in Crazy But True, a production by theatre director Ant Hampton, on Thursday 11/10.

Onstage, the children will form a panel of ‘experts’. They will each wear headphones, through which they will hear a text that they must repeat. Rehearsals are thus not necessary. They will recite a growing list of extraordinary facts. While some are very funny, others describe a world for which the adult audience is collectively responsible.

When? Thu 11/10, 5 PM > 8 PM
Where? La Monnaie, Place de la Monnaie, 1000 Brussels

The performance is divided into 12-minute slots. Each child can choose to take part in one or more of these slots. No rehearsals are necessary. We expect the children who will appear in the first slot to arrive at 4:30 PM. The performance is bilingual: Dutch and French. We will make sure that your child can take part in his/her preferred language. All the participating children must be accompanied by an adult. Acting experience is not required, enthusiasm to take part is all you need!

Just before or during the performance at La Monnaie, or before, by email to Nelson Polfliet (extras@kaaitheater.be or 02 201 58 58). Don’t hesitate to contact us with any other questions!

Children have an insatiable hunger for unusual facts and trivia of the ‘crazy but true’ type. In the performance, children between the ages of eight and eleven form a panel of experts. A text is whispered to them via headsets. They repeat what they hear, and thus present a growing list of extraordinary facts.
