Allenberry Playhouse and Allenberry Resort is holding local auditions for its fall 2015 season at Allenberry Resort in Central PA. Sunday August 16th 2015 in the afternoon and evening. Auditions are for Children and Adults. We are casting specifically for our Annual Original Christmas Show and Annual Murder Mystery Weekend as well as keeping our files fresh. We will gladly see as many folks as possible. However, we are specifically seeking local actors.
All interested applicants should reach out ASAP for an appointment- Please include headshot and resume and most importantly current availability. Chidlren (under 16) if you do you have a head shot or resume- just your name and age/grade are fine for now.
When you come to appointment please prepare 16 bars of traditional musical theatre and 16 bars of popular music. As well as a short comedic monologue, if you are interested in the Murder Mystery Weekend.
There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays: The Christmas Show: We are seeking Non-Equity Actors who can play multiple roles in this theme park style - traditional book musical. Seeking actors of all styles, types, ethnicities and backgrounds. The show consists of some pre-show caroling, a 90 minute show and post show meet and greet and photos with patrons. Company consists of 8 actors and 2 teams of 8 children (alternating). The show is not fully written yet- so there is no available breakdown. All adult roles are paid.
There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays: By Jackie Heinze: Rehearsals 10/20-11/04. Runs 11/04/15-12/20-15 - 6-10 shows per week.
An Unconventional Murder: The Murder Mystery Weekend: The Murder Mystery runs along with the Christmas show. Some applicants must be available for both shows- as we carry some actors into both. All roles are paid.
Allenberry is located on a historic 57 acre resort with dining and housing lodges. We have been doing these Murder Mysteries for 28 years. All the scene work takes place over different locations on our property and fully is scripted and the show spans from Friday afternoon ends at Noon Sunday (with breaks, of course.) But there is a bit improv involved as you interact with guests. There is lots of singing with a band, so a pop voice is helpful. This job is not only ideal for a standard Musical Theatre Actor, but also a cabaret artist with some acting chops.
We provide housing, meals and travel.
