Open Call – February 14th, 2015
The Tennessee Renaissance Festival is casting for its 2015 Festival. Actors will portray the townsfolk and nobility of Covington Glen, a 16th Century English Village. The Festival invites actors (18 years or older) of all types and experience levels to our Open Call on February 14th, 2015. Please dress comfortably and come prepared to move. Actors will be asked to participate in improvisational exercises and anyone wishing to demonstrate specific skills (character or theatrical monologue, singing or period musical instrument, stage combat, or other skills) may do so, though this is not required.
• We are looking for Peasants, Nobility, and Fairies; some cast members may also be in our Queen’s Comedy Show.
• Rehearsals are every Saturday and Sunday starting the last weekend of March through April. There will be additional rehearsals in February and March for fairies, stage combatants, and the Queens Comedy Show. In addition, we will have specialty rehearsals as needed during the weeks leading up to the festival.
•If you are interested in the Queens Comedy Show please have a monologue no longer than 1:30 prepared.
•Please consider the time commitments needed for these more demanding roles prior to agreeing to you casting.
• Rehearsals will cover: guidelines on how to build a period-looking costume, character development, interactive and improvisational theatre, and language and dialect skills.
