We are looking for 30 teenagers to join the cast of Dante’s Inferno in Millennium Square, Leeds on Sat 23 July

The literary classic, which follows the teenage Dante’s journey into hell, is being given a contemporary multi-media treatment – and young people are being urgently sought to join the cast. The play is being staged as part of the 2011 Open Weekend.

We are looking for 30 people aged between 13 and 19 who are free to attend all-day rehearsals at the University of Leeds on Saturday and Sunday, July 16-17, an evening rehearsal on Friday July 22 – and then be available from 10am-10pm on July 23, the day of the performance at Millennium Square.

Individuals, groups of friends or members of drama groups/youth organisations are all welcome to apply.

Steve Ansell has more than 25 years of experience working with young people. He is an associate artist at Dean Clough, former Associate director at Harrogate Theatre and currently manages stage@leeds, a new theatre in the heart of the University campus.

If you are interested in taking part in DANTE: Inferno, please email Steve at for an application form.
