Entertainment Auditions

The Georgia Renaissance Festival is pleased to announce auditions for the 2021 season!

The Georgia Renaissance Festival is seeking performers to bring the village of Newcastle to life for our 2021 season! We are in search of peasants, pirates, fairies, lords and ladies of all body types, gender identities and experience backgrounds.

We are looking for bold, engaging performers who have additional skills as jugglers, acrobats, storytellers, circus performers, musicians and more. Performers with strong character acting and/or improv skills are strongly encouraged to attend.

About the Job:

The street cast works throughout the Festival day on the grounds, interacting and performing for patrons as members of our Apprentice Acting company.

Apprentice positions are non-paid. Auditioners MUST have wide-ranging weekend availability January thru June. Rehearsals will be structured based on experience - expect at least four to six weekend rehearsals/commitments before the Festival opens.


Audition Dates:

Saturday, February 11th from 9am to 6pm at the Legacy Theatre, located at 1175 Senoia Rd, Tyrone, GA 30290

What to Expect:

COVID19 SAFETY: We require all auditioners to wear a mask or face covering and to respect social distancing during the audition process. There will be hand sanitizer available, and the audition space will be disinfected frequently throughout the day.

This year's audition will consist of several components. Audition will consist of a cold read, character acting audition and a brief interview. If you have a performance talent or skill, please come prepared to show it off! If you have a prepared monologue, we would love to see/hear it!

If you play an instrument and would like to audition for a spot as a Festival musician, please prepare a 1-2 minute performance of a renaissance, pirate or Celtic song. If you are a musician in a group, please ensure that all members of your group are with you.


What to Bring:

Please bring your headshot and resume if you have one. Wear clothing you can move in - Renaissance costumes are not required.

If you are unable to attend auditions but would still like to be considered, or if you have additional questions, please send an email with your resume and headshot attached to Dave Dorrell, General Manager, or call 770-964-8575 ext 107.
