We are looking for a male performer (25-50) to join DadMan: The Bathtime Warrior team and play the part of DAD #2. You will be required to work for 1 week on the final R&D phase, and then rehearse for 4 weeks before the show goes out on a national tour. All relevant dates are below.
We are looking for a terrific team player, hard working and versatile performer, comfortable with devising and movement, plays an instrument and/or has a good singing voice. Ideally with a West Midlands base, as the tour will be based from Birmingham.

Dadman: The Bathtime Warrior is show, created by two mums, performed by two dads.
DadMan is a warrior. He stands strong at the gates of an ideal Birth-Plan and sings the blues about Being The Only Man At A Parent And Baby Group. This show is partly quiz, partly story intertwined with live music and original songs, partly total fantasy where DadMan dives in and out of the bathtub, running into Trust, Breasts, Flexi –Hours, Soft Play Areas and Sex (not necessarily in that order, or at the same time!!).
Notnow Collective specialise in the baby-friendly, baby-welcoming and baby-proof shows for adults. We want to enable our audiences to enjoy a great night out at daytime, without needing to spend on a baby-sitter.
