We cast for actors twice yearly using a casting agent and putting a callout through Spotlight. We also post all castings on our website and share via Facebook and Twitter. So check for updates to avoid missing out.

Writers

If you are interested in creating theatre for children, please contact Artistic Director Wendy Harris at wendy@tutti-frutti.org.uk  for further information.  We run a First Words project to support writers.

Please note we can provide placements during rehearsals but we cannot fund these. So if you’d like to volunteer to gain experience, then please get in touch.

Venues and theatre companies

“When I see young people in our studio experiencing or making art, it strikes me as an event containing great hope. I find this hope inspirational”. Damian Cruden, Artistic Director York Theatre Royal

We co-produce many of our productions with York Theatre Royal, but are keen to nurture new relationships with venues and theatre companies. We would be delighted to have a conversation with you about working together.

Schools

“tutti frutti creates work that is genuinely respectful of the intelligence and ability of young children.” Su Edwards, Head Teacher, Raynville Primary School, Leeds

We like to work in schools to bring artists and children together in creative projects. This may be for research and development on a show or through a specific piece of work for children. We have also run residencies in schools. If you have an idea and want to discuss us working with you, send an email to Wendy Harris wendy@tutti-frutti.org.uk.
