Open Call: Elfie Picket Theatre seek Dundee musicians

Elfie Picket Theatre are looking for local musicians to help with their new project this Autumn.

Dundee-based Elfie Picket Theatre are taking their community project Dolly Parton Saved My Life on a tour of Dundee community spaces in October and September, and they’re looking for local musicians to join them!

Dolly Parton Saved My Life is a new play by Taylor Dyson. It’s a story about grief, family, women and complex relationships, inspired by the music of Dolly Parton and the relationship working-class women of Scotland have with American country & western music. Live music and spoken word poetry are combined with theatre to help to tell a multi-timeline tale of family and finding yourself.

Each event on the project tour will consist of a performance of the play, followed by a social event and live music. Elfie Picket Theatre are looking for solo, acoustic artists to do a short 15 minute set after the play.

This opportunity is aimed at local musicians who might not have had many chances to perform live, and the selected musicians will each be paid a £50 fee for around 15 minutes of performance.

Deadline: Fri 26 August, 5pm

If you are interested, get in touch with Calum Kelly to arrange a short meeting via Zoom.

Elfie Picket are a Dundee-based theatre company, founded by Taylor Dyson and Calum Kelly. Their work is focused on Scots language and socio-political issues in Scotland, using bold and vibrant stories, poetry and music.
