Community Play Composer/ Sound Designer


Lighthouse is working closely with associate company Angel Exit Theatre Company to create a large- scale community play (PCP) Called SALT in July 2023 as part of the Poole High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) programme in partnership with Historic England (HE). The play will celebrate Poole and bring new activities and audiences into its historic heart and to commemorate the links with its maritime and international trade connections, including Newfoundland.

A professional cast and creative team will be supported by a large community company of actors and singers, with promenade style performances taking place at Lighthouse Poole and at outdoor pop- up performances on Poole High street, in The Old Town and around The Quay.

We are seeking a Community Play Composer/ Sound Designer to create an original score of music and sounds for SALT . We would request some engagement in community sessions. One specific task involves recording voices of people from Poole and the Newfoundland Communities. The composer will help record these voices and overlay them in a track.
