Actors are now wanted for the live theatre performance of Robin Hood!
Beijing Playhouse, China's English Broadway Theatre is currently seeking 30 actors and singers for the production of a musical comedy rendition of Robin Hood.
Professional acting experience is great—but by no means necessary. The Playhouse is always up for discovering new talent. They encourage non-native English speaking actors as well. If you are a non-native English speaker, it is strongly suggested to bring a memorized 60 second language monologue in English.
Robin Hood will be holding auditions on Sunday, September 21st and Monday, September 22nd, in the British School of Beijing, Sanlitun campus at 6:30pm.
Call backs will be on Tuesday September 23 at 6:30pm at Olympic Theatre and possibly Wednesday September 24 at 6:30pm at BSB in Sanlitun.
Please arrive on time. Actors who do not arrive on time are much less likely to be cast in theatre productions.
Monologues are optional and encouraged but also not necessary. You'll do a live reading from the script, perform scenes from the show with other actors and sing a song of your choosing. The choreographer will then teach you a simple dance.
Currently there are 30 roles open:
- 6 boys, age 6-14
- 12 men, age 15-60
- 2 men, age 60-80
- 6 girls, age 6-14
- 12 women, age 15-60
- 2 women, age 60-80
It’s completely free to participate in the play, all actors are volunteers.
Rehearsals are five times per week in October and November. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm (occasionally at 10:00 pm) and Sunday afternoons from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
