The Story Republic is a travelling world of words that celebrates the place of story in Cornwall’s culture.​ A first of its kind in Cornwall and beyond, The Story Republic is an exciting programme of events and installations to delight and inspire audiences through the wonder of the written word.

The engaging front face of The Story Republic is a team of performers: The Story Republicans. They are a key element of the project who perform in schools, festivals, events; often outdoors.

See the website for more information about the project

We would like to recruit 2 or 3 Story Republicans to join the existing team for a programme in May 2018 and beyond.

The programme is aimed at emerging theatre performers who are interested in working in a variety of spaces from the street to galleries, castles to classrooms with a repertoire of songs, poems and short stories. You will need to be enthusiastic, at ease vocally and able to make yourself heard, keen to work in an ensemble, willing and able to sing and to be bold!  If you play a musical instrument that is a bonus but not essential. We do not perform plays.

You do need access to transport as some of the places are difficult to get to on public transport. This work is best suited to people living in Cornwall.

The artistic director of the Story Republican programme is writer and director Annamaria Murphy and we work with guest directors and singing leaders.

After the training there will be freelance paid work.  This is not a tour and the work is sporadic so we are flexible around other work commitments.

There are also opportunities to develop workshop skills in our Writers’ Block at Cornwall College Camborne.


Deadline for applications: Thursday 12th April at 5pm

Audition Date: Monday 30 April at The Writers’ Block, Cornwall College Camborne

Rehearsal Dates: Wed 9 – Fri 11 May at The Writers’ Block
