Here is your chance to make history as one of the talented performers of The Connecticut Renaissance Faire! This year marks the popular festival’s 19th annual performance to be held at its all-new location on the Lebanon Fairgrounds this fall.
This year’s Cast Production is an adaptation of Francis Beaumont’s comedy “The Knight of the Burning Pestle” and will be directed by Scott Stephen Kegler. Selected performers will have the opportunity to play imagined or historical characters from the Renaissance period.
AUDITIONS will be held on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday July 23, from 10am to 5pm at the Faire’s office, 46 Mill Street, 2nd floor, in Southbridge, Massachusetts.
SIGN UP for a half-hour slot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
PREPARE: One 1-minute comedic monologue and/or a contrasting 1-minute dramatic monologue. Selections from classical works are always appreciated. Your ability to sing and skill with stage combat will also be auditioned. Cold reads also accepted.
The Faire is looking for all types, ages, and ethnicities with big personalities and big voices. Wear casual, comfortable clothing that allows for movement. The Faire will train the right candidates in stage combat, singing, improvisation, interaction with the public, and more as required by their role.
