i know its slightly off topic, but i need some help!
im moving to london in 2-3 weeks, and currently dont have any way of funding myself beyond my first month really. The job i had lined up has fallen though, and i was wondering if anyone knows of any (theatre related?) jobs
I have theatre bar and some back stage & FOH experiance.
thank y'all!

Walk the West End, you'll get something.

Not that it ever worked for me but as above send CVs to theatres, and go in and talk to people. To fill the gap you could also sign up to recruitment agencies-filing or answering the phone is no fun but it pays the bills and adds skills to a theatre CV

And if you're successful tell me what you're trick was re: Give me a Job?

Also have a look at the "off west end" theatres - Wimbledon, Richmond, Churchill Bromley and so on. They get a lot of Pre/Post West End show and the travel would be straight forward too. Don't forget Albert Hall and concert venues - they always need people.

A friend told me yesterday that the Playhouse and Piccadilly are looking for ushers.
