The Little Red Company are looking for two performers to join the cast of our festive hit Christmas Actually in the iconic role of Tenor 2 (affectionately known as the Nativity Lobster). 

We invite applications from male-identifying performers aged 20-35 with pop tenor voices of all cultural backgrounds and access requirements.  

Successful applicants will be excellent singers and performers no taller than 178 cm with a ‘primary school’ playing age (a pivotal plot point in an otherwise completely unscripted show!). We are looking for youthful, comical performers with a passion for backing vocals who aren’t afraid to parade around in a papier-maché lobster head during our confetti-filled finale! 

We are casting one Queensland-based lobster and one Victoria-based lobster for this year’s festivities.   

Rehearsal dates:           Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 November 2024 
Queensland dates:       Thursday 28 November to Sunday 22 December 2024 
Victoria dates:               Thursday 12 December to Sunday 22 December 2024 


Applications are by online submission only and must include the following: 

  • Professional CV 
  • Headshot 
  • Self-tape: White Christmas by Otis Redding (audition cut) 

This is a paid role, aligning with standard LPA fees.

Applications close Friday 21 June.

  • The demo track has a 2 Bar intro rather than the 4 bars notated on the score.  
  • Our version is roughly based on the Otis Redding version of White Christmas but the showmanship, cheekiness and interplay with the audience and band are much more heightened in ours. 
  • Required vocal range: B2 – A4
