Fort Steele will be holding auditions for the Fort Steele Summer Theatre on March 16 at the heritage town. Additionally there will be auditions held in Calgary on March 23.
Performers will be cast in a mainstage musical put on at the theatre, as well as street theatre scenes around the townsite which will run throughout the summer season.
“We’re really excited to have Truus Verkley from Calgary joining us for the theatre show this year,” said Kathy Allison, Fort Steele’s heritage manager. “It promises to be amazing entertainment.”
The performance contract begins around May 24 and ends Sept. 6, 2015.
Fort Steele provides accommodation for out of town performers and it is a paid contract.
The auditions will be held March 16 between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. in the theatre in Fort Steele. Actors will be given 10 minute time slots and if you have a preferred time they ask that you include it in your submission.
Performers are asked to prepare a short monologue and may also be asked to do a cold read. Auditioners should also prepare one song that shows your vocal range. Candidates will be taught a short bit of choreography during the audition so please come dressed in something you can easily move in. An accompaniment will not be provided so organizers ask that you bring a sound recording to sing to.
If you would like to audition, email Truus Verkley at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a with a headshot, resume and preferred audition time. If you are not able to attend the auditions but would still like to be considered for the 2015 season email Verkley for video submission details.
