At SURGE we welcome enquiries from companies looking to book stage acts and ‘walkabout’ performances.
We have created a number of acts suitable for festivals, launches, and media events, and also have the ability to create custom-made acts to suit your particular needs. We additionally work with a number of partner companies who it may be appropriate to put you in contact with.
Please contact Alan Richardson at alan[at]surge.scot or 0141 559 4925 to discuss your requirements. Please note: in order to discuss how we might support your project, it will be essential that we know when and where the event will take place, and what your approximate budget is.

Whether it’s our ducks-turned-doctors trying to give you a medical check-up, or gigantic fish shoaling amidst the audience, our popular Street Theatre walkabout acts are perfect to bring fun and colour to your festival or event. Acts are directed by our associated street theatre Director Graham Hicks and costumes are designed and made by Annie Hiner. Have a look at some photos of previous outings in our Flickr gallery.

Three unsightly souls have emerged from the difficult and disease ridden daily grind of life in 1500s to make a stand for peasants everywhere. They may be smelly, uneducated and have a shockingly low average life span but they can be artists too and they are here to share their stories with you. Their repertoire includes The Real Macbeth (the version Shakespeare doesn’t want you to see), The Story of the Swede (a delightful ditty of farming, harvesting and more farming) and Saddle Up The Horses, a game the whole family can play (when they are not working, which is never).
A curious band of bumbling car mechanics shows up on pedestrian streets to promote their mobile car garage. This unlikely trio conceal their incompetence by turning to opera!
Led by a desperate amateur, they live up to their name, performing Carmen in all its greasy glory.
Directed by Alan Richardson.
Music arrangement by Stephen Deazley.
