An unprecedented opportunity has arisen to join the Hampshire 2016 production team: we are re-opening applications for the role of choreographer!
A little bit about RicNic
Founded in Hampshire in 2004 by Ben Nicholls and Ashley Riches, RicNic’s annual show is now a key component of the prestigious Theatre Royal’s summer programme. This year the Hampshire team are delighted to be reviving the timeless classic, Guys and Dolls, which also has the added nostalgic bonus of being the first show RicNic ever performed.
Every summer, each of RicNic’s branches (RicNic Hampshire and RicNic Oxford), put on a musical in a professional theatre - for which the participants take full responsibility (from the casting to the set design to selling the tickets). With RicNic, you really do ‘own the stage’; and, best of all, there’s no fee to take part!
Hampshire’s 2015 production of The Pajama Game was well-received by audiences and critics alike, earning three Curtain Call nominations. The team are keen to build on this success for their 2016 production of Guys and Dolls and are delighted to re-open applications for the position of choreographer - an important and enjoyable role.
Why should I apply?
We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals between 16 - 21 years of age who can take on the challenge of producing high-quality dance sequences during the show (and other movement as required), as well as contributing to general production team responsibilities, such as fundraising.
Being part of a RicNic production team is an experience like no other: you’ll develop key skills, play an integral role in creating a fantastic production, and you’re sure to have a lot of fun, too. As an added bonus, it’s a great thing to note down on your CV.
How to apply
For more information on the role and what it entails, please consult our guide specification page. If you’d like to apply, there are two methods:
We’re more interested in passion and enthusiasm than bags of experience (though that helps, too) so if you feel you have something to offer, please don’t hesitate to apply. The closing date for applications is Friday 1st April, so be sure to submit your form by then!
And, if you have any questions regarding the role or your application, feel free to contact us.
We hope to hear from you soon.
Ben, Nick, Alex and Team Hampshire 2016
