We are always looking for good actors, and have auditions as needed
throughout the year.
What we are looking for:
We search for intelligent, eager, physically
and vocally versatile actors who enjoy performing for children, and who
enjoy traveling. We want actors who are proactive, responsible and friendly,
and who will infect audiences with their love of live theatre. We want actors
who have had professional training, and we give preference to actors who
have had previous experience in quality children’s theatre. We want actors
who are vibrant and thoughtful communicators, good listeners, and who are
positive role models. We want actors who enjoy the teaching aspect of
interaction with children, as well as the performance aspect of storytelling.
We hire actors over the age of 21 and generally below the age of 35 due
to the physical demands of the job. All of our acting teams consist of two
people, so we are always interested in seeing actor couples, or friends who
would like to perform and travel together.
About the job: Actors are paid on a per show basis. We hire actors
regardless of union membership or lack thereof, under our own contracts.
(We have no affiliation with Actor’s Equity.) Actors share driving responsibilities
while on the road so all applicants must have valid licenses and good DMV
driving records. At least one actor on each team must have a dependable,
insured vehicle which the team can comfortably travel in.
If you are interested in auditioning for our company:
Please send a picture and resume to the address below, along with a cover letter
that includes all of your contact information and anything else you feel is pertinent.
We will then contact applicants for an initial interview over the phone. The next
step would be auditioning, which we can now do by having you upload a link
we can view.
Thank you for your interest in Traveling Lantern!
