Texas Renaissance Festival Cast Auditions

The Texas Renaissance Festival, the nation's largest, most acclaimed renaissance themed park, seeks interactive character actors and specialty acts for its 2008 Performance Company. Auditions will be held on Saturday, May 3, and Saturday, May 10, 2008.

Entertainers of all types are needed to fill various roles including nobility, fairies, barbarians, puppeteers and peasants. Two new character groups have been added for this year, a Halloween-themed Transylvanian court and a group of Christmas elves (requiring actors of diminutive stature). Previous stage experience is helpful but not required. Bilingual actors are especially welcome. Specialty acts (musicians, jugglers, singers, dancers, etc.) may also audition at this time.

Auditions will be held on Saturday, May 3rd and Saturday, May, 10th. The May 3rd auditions will take place at the Shenandoah Meeting and Convention center, near The Woodlands, north of downtown Houston, Texas. The May 10th auditions will take place on the grounds of the Texas Renaissance Festival, 21778 FM 1774 in Plantersville, Texas.
