Be more than just an observer, become part of the team that brings the Medieval Fair to life!
These are improv auditions. You don’t need to prepare any audition materials ahead of time; that’s the magic of improvisational theater. Come prepared to show off your loudest voice or quietest whisper, to sing a song or perhaps to whistle it, to delicately dance or trippingly tumble, to share what you love to do or to ask us why we do this. Veterans wanting to play a new character and novices must audition. Costumes are NOT required for auditions. If you are unable to attend this day, please contact the Medieval Fair Coordinator Ann Marie Eckart by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beggars, peasants, townspeople, nobles and others are needed. This is your opportunity to learn a lot about interactive environmental performance (improvisational street theater) and a little about medieval history, costuming, dances and more. You don't have to be an actor, just a good team player that is willing to learn and to have fun!
(Rehearsals are Sundays 1pm-5pm October through March at the Union. Optional choreographed combat classes will be on Saturdays 4pm-6pm at the Forum.)
