The York Dungeon
The York Dungeon, Clifford Street, York, UK
Right now York Dungeon are looking for competent Character Actors on a fixed term basis to support us during the upcoming summer period.
About the role
The York Dungeon is a 75-minute interactive theatrical tour where our guests are transported back in history and recounted tales of York’s murky past by one of our many infamous characters. You could therefore find yourself tackling the role of The Torturer, a warrior from Viking Age York, The Lord Chief Justice, Guy Fawkes, or even Margaret Clitherow, amongst others.
