leo&hyde are searching for a director for the forthcoming production of our Gogglebox-inspired musical mash-up, The Marriage of Kim K.
Returning after a critically-acclaimed UK tour in 2017, our award-winning debut has been re-developed into a full-length show, and we’re now looking for a director to join our team ahead of a Northern studio tour in November 2019.
Manchester Theatre Awards: "Breathtaking... this show is exceptional... an exciting example of what can be achieved in theatre."
A fight over the TV remote: 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' or 'The Marriage of Figaro'?
Three fractured relationships unfold simultaneously on stage, to a genre-defying soundtrack of slick electronic-pop, classical opera, and contemporary musical theatre:
We’re looking for a director to join our team, particularly someone who thinks they can contribute clear storytelling to an ambitious, multi-layered story; that can bring comedic timing, heart, and strong characterisations to an eclectic mix of interesting characters.
We welcome applications from anyone at all with a passion for the idea of the show, and are particularly keen to hear from female-identifying directors.
A director with experience working with music and singers is desirable but not essential.
Rehearsal dates: 15 days of rehearsal between 7-30th October, November 12-13th, in Manchester
The show will at this stage be performed in studio theatres in the North in November:
We are looking towards a longer run and further touring in 2020.
