General information :
A major new production of the much loved Five Guys Named Moe – reimagined,
revitalised and re-designed for the 21st Century. The production will open
in Edinburgh for a 6 week season over Christmas before transferring to
London’s West End in its own pop-up theatre in February. This will be an
immersive, intimate and thrilling new production. We’re looking for actors
that can sing, dance and act. We’re looking for actors that will understand
(and enjoy) the unique requirements of creating a show that will be played
in-the-round and sometimes off the stage/in the audience. Most importantly,
we’re looking to put together a fantastic ensemble that will work hard with
the creative team to bring Five Guys Named Moe to a whole new audience.
