We are keen to find people willing to volunteer their time to be ?Front of House? volunteers as part of ABSENT. We are now excited to be able to offer you a discounted ?5.00 Golden ticket for the show (normally ?17.50) if you volunteer some of your time to be part of ABSENT.

ABSENT is a piece of theatre being created in the Winter Gardens, in and around the Pavillion Theatre, by internationally acclaimed company dreamthinkspeak, led by Tristan Sharps. ABSENT takes you on a theatrical journey along a maze of rooms and corridors that are inexplicably transforming before your very eyes. Mixing film, architecture and vast model-making installations with a haunting soundtrack, you will enter a kaleidoscopic world that shifts between Blackpool?s past, present and future to create a beautiful and unforgettable experience.

The Role

You will be operating in the foyer areas of the building, which will be dressed as a hotel reception. You will help collect tickets, direct the audience and ensure that the performance runs smoothly.? Most importantly, you will be ?in role? as hotel staff. You will be provided with a costume and full training will be given.

There will also be a workshop with the Artistic Director to familiarise you with the performance, your role and the set.

There is no script to learn and prior acting experience is not necessary, however, it is integral to the success of the performance that you are able to fully commit to the role and assume the identity of the ?Front of House Clerk? whilst participating.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with an internationally acclaimed company, renowned for producing ground breaking and evocative theatre. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in theatre, enjoy acting, or would just like to do something exceptional and exciting; this is an opportunity not to be missed.
