Call for Performers/Dancers/Actors/Accordion Player

A rare opportunity to be part of a new SKIPtheatre production!

‘Pirates of Prawle – A Night of Pandemonium’ is taking place in the seaside Devonshire village of East Prawle on 21st August. It will be a devised, interactive, promenade performance around the village, which then turns into a party in the hall of the Pigs Nose Inn with the Jive Jacks band performing.

‘Pirates of Prawle’ is based on a newspaper article called 'A Night of Terror at Prawle' from the 1970's, which can be found on the wall at the Pigs Nose Inn.
