Parent Artist call-out

No matter whether you are Big or Small, the world is full of rules. Sometimes we make our own rules, sometimes we don’t know the rules and sometimes we want to play by different rules. What happens when a Beatboxer, a Singer and a Puppeteer arrive on stage but nothing is ready for them? No set, no instruments, no puppets. No rules.

We are looking for a parent artist to work in our outreach programme for ‘Big Up’, a show being created and presented by Theatre Rites and 20 Stories High. Our parent artist will be able relate to the family groups or may be returning to the arts after some time away from work, to deliver family arts sessions. Big Up! is taking place in March 2019.

Please submit this information, along with a current CV, covering letter and contact details via email to by 12pm on Friday 25 January. In the email subject line, please use Big Up Outreach – Parent Artist Call-out. Any questions before then please send to or call on 0161 226 1912.

Interviews will take place on Tuesday 5 February 2019
