All roles require an actor with a playing range of 16 - 25 years. However you need to be at least 19 years old so that you have at least one year driving experience, can show a good driving record, and have the maturity to cope with touring.
All shows are 2 handers except for Cheap Thrills, which is a one-man show.
Touring with Brainstorm is a full time job, Monday to Friday, for the length of the contract.
We are casting Sydney-, Melbourne- and Brisbane-based actors. Tours are based in the actors' home cities, with some regional and interstate touring.
A modern, air-conditioned company vehicle (automatic) is provided for each team including fuel and running costs.
Contracts vary from 2 or 3 school terms i.e. 20 or 30 weeks (approx). Most contracts start at the beginning or middle of January but some do start later in the year.
Rehearsals are 3 weeks, Mon – Fri 8.30am – 4.30pm on the Far North Coast of NSW (Near Byron Bay). Actors are paid at Equity rates during rehearsals, meal allowance and accommodation is provided.
Actors are paid the current Grade 1 MEAA rate for 2020 for the duration of their contract, plus tax free living away from home allowance (LAHA) when away from home. If accommodation is provided by Brainstorm Productions (e.g. rehearsals or Adelaide Tours) a tax free meals and incidentals allowance is paid instead of the travel allowance. The standard MEAA rate of holiday pay including leave loading and 10% employer superannuation contributions are also paid.
