Casting call Llyfr Glas Nebo

We’re delighted to announce an open call for auditionees for our national tour of Llyfr Glas Nebo.

The show, an adaptation of Manon Steffan Ros’ post-apocalyptic novel, will be touring during February and March 2020.

We are holding auditions at two different locations this July.

The artistic team is searching for performers to take on the role of Sion – a teenage boy who lives with his mother and little sister – and for members of the ensemble cast who will play multiple roles. Welsh language performers of all cultural backgrounds are sought for all roles.

Llyfr Glas Nebo is directed by Elgan Rhys with set design from Elin Steele, choreography from Matt Gough and music from Robin Edwards. It’s a production partnership with Galeri Caernarfon supported by Arts Council of Wales lottery funding.
