Be part of Bletchley Park's history

Date Posted:07/01/2014

Bletchley ParkBletchley Park is looking for enthusiasts, drama students and amateur actors to become part of History at the Home of the Codebreakers. The chosen candidates will take part in filming for the new Bletchley Park experience and record voiceovers for audio installations about codebreaking.

The Bletchley Park Trust and Elbow Productions, the specialist company creating the digital interpretation as part of the £8m, Heritage Lottery Funded restoration of Bletchley Park, are looking for between 20 and 30 people to feature in audio and film installations for the newly renovated Huts and Blocks.

Elbow will film scenes about Bletchley during World War Two, in period costume, over two days in February or March 2014. Filming will most likely take place over a weekend. Anyone taking part will be asked to attend weekend and / or evening rehearsals at the end of January and in early February, plus a daytime or evening costume fitting. Everyone taking part will be dressed in 1940s costume or uniform with full hair and make-up (costume, hair dressing and professional make-up will be provided).

If you think you would like to take part, please apply to be invited to one of our casting workshops, which will last for approximately 2 hours, and will involve warm up and drama games, plus sight-reading from some of the scripted Bletchley Park World War Two scenes.
