Toy Mic Trev A New Musical By Alan Harris

Trainee Producer Callout

Are you based in or near Cardiff? Are you a musical theatre lover? Always wanted to try Producing, or curious about what a theatre Producer does? Chippy Lane Productions Ltd. are offering an opportunity for an individual to spend three days as a Trainee Producer on the development of new musical ‘Toy Mic Trev’, written by BAFTA-winning writer Alan Harris and composed by Hannah Noone.

“Plastic-microphone-busking legend Trevor Rees was a profound part of the cultural fabric of Cardiff; until he went missing. This production tells the story of a journalist’s mission to find him, as she uncovers a local story of love, loss and the wonder in the everyday – a million miles from the cynicism of the newsroom.”

We are undertaking five days of Arts Council Wales funded R&D (Research and Development) to further develop the show between 28 October and 4 November 2021, at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. The Trainee Producer will have the opportunity to spend 3 days shadowing the Producer on the show, before and during the R+D.  We are offering a fee of £100 per day, £300 in total. Please be aware that we cannot cover travel or accommodation, and that you will need to be based within commuting distance of Wales Millenium Centre in Cardiff Bay.

We are actively interested in hearing from people we haven’t met or engaged with before as a company. We are not expecting applicants to have had a background in theatre producing but we are interested in hearing from individuals who are interested and passionate about making new musical theatre.

To apply, please send us answers to the following questions to [email protected] by midnight on 24 September 2021. Please also fill in this monitoring form: https://bit.ly/3DQ8n9k This is anonymous and will in no way be linked to your application.

  2. What do you hope to get out of this role? (150 words or 60 seconds audio or video)

  3. If you were a musical, what would it be and why? (150 words or 60 seconds audio or video)

We will be shortlisting applicants, and then holding informal interviews on Zoom. Please let us know when you apply if you have any access needs for attending the Zoom call, or if you have any questions about the role.

ABOUT US…

Chippy Lane Productions Ltd. (CLP) was founded in 2016 by Rebecca Jade Hammond, a Cardiff born actor, writer and producer. CLP’s primary mission is to promote Welsh and Wales-based theatre and talent, to audiences in and beyond Wales. “Regional work is important, audiences want to hear stories from everywhere” (CLP in Arts Scene In Wales, 2016).

CLP is a London-based Welsh company created in response to our research that showed a lack of Welsh work being produced beyond Wales. The arts, in Wales and from Welsh origin, are undergoing change and there is a wealth of excitement for writing, acting and theatre that is new, diverse and vibrant. We achieve our goal by building relationships with established Welsh and Wales-based playwrights, encouraging and producing new work, and reaching out to Welsh communities living inside and outside of Wales. “The grass roots of Welsh performance are irrepressible” (CLP in Theatre In Wales, 2018).

As a young company Chippy Lane has achieved a tremendous amount in a short space of time with limited resources and funding. At the helm of this company is Artistic Director Rebecca Jade Hammond. Her commitment and dedication to the championing of the Welsh and Wales-based voices has been met with open arms from fellow creatives. Her position and perspective as a Welsh company operating outside of Wales developing work across both Wales and England, bridging the gap between two countries has led to interest from arts media (The Guardian, The Stage, Wales Arts Review, Arts Desk, Exeunt, What’s On Stage, GetTheChanceWales, Arts Scene in Wales, Western Mail). Rebecca was also recently recognised as a ‘100 Women of Wales’ 2018 and 2019 by Wales Arts Review, which highlights women who are ones to watch, and inspiring the arts in Wales.

“Chippy Lane Productions might not be a common name on theatre-goers’ tongues, but this is evidence it might soon be.”
Arts Desk  ★★★★

” If Chippy Lane’s second production was to be summed up in one word, that word would almost certainly be ‘love’. Both on- and off-stage, love permeates through every nook and cranny.”

Wales Arts Review

“Rebecca is pioneering opportunities for women writers from Wales to champion their abilities and break through the boundaries and stereotypes of writing they have previously been confined.”
The Cardiffian
