A Manchester theatre company: Contact is looking for 100 Manchester City fans to take part in a play – and no professional actors!

Contact Theatre Company are opening their 2017 autumn season in September with a new play which brings the experiences of City fans to the stage.

We’re Not Really Here: A Football Opera is a piece dedicated to what it means to be a football fan – the highs, the lows, the banter and the songs and puts the fans centre stage. The audience sit in the middle as if they are on the pitch and watch the fans as if they are watching a match.

It’s an international collaboration between Contact and Belgian theatre directors, Yahya Terryn, Gilles De Schryver and Oliver Roels – formerly of legendary Belgian company het Kip.

They’re looking for City fans of all ages to be part of this unique theatre performance.

They need people to do what they do week in, week out, at games – the songs, the banter, the chants.

No acting experience is required to take part. They just need you to commit to most of the rehearsal period and all public performances. And don’t worry, it’s not an opera. There’s no singing other than the chants and songs associated with the club.

To take part we just need you to commit to most of the rehearsal period and all public performances, and most importantly, show the world how amazing Man City fans are!

Rehearsals take place at Contact, depending on day or evening availability, Sat 9 September to Wed 20 September. Shows take place Wed 20 September- Sat 23 September (4 days, 5 shows).
Interested or have a question? Please email Kyle, our participation co-ordinator (and City mega fan)
