Mainly actors required but are a couple of sea-shanties to be sung as well. In past centuries, smuggling of silks, tobacco and brandy, was rife along the coasts of the Southwest, and the smugglers invented ever more creative, and in some cases very humourous tactics to evade the law. “Resurrection” Bob, faked his own death to transport contraband to Totnes, under the noses of the coastguards, in a very large coffin. Later that night, the story tells, the local coastguards encountered Bob on the highway, and were convinced that they had seen a ghost. Performers needed ages 16 - 75, previous experience is not required (what is required, is commitment and the ability to function in a hard-working friendly team) There is no payment as we are a non-profit, voluntary group with a turnover of less than £1,000. However, other 'perks' are available free of charge eg: free photoshoot/ video clips/ references!
