The BC Renaissance Festival is casting for it’s 2014 year and we are hoping to be able to also find some great actors who can join us on Times Past Entertainment projects as well.

Over the next week we will be meeting with people in person (instead of a formal audition process) to see if they are right for us. We are looking for both main cast and villagers. We are also looking for an AD and Villager Co-ordinator. This is live theatre so I will be looking for people who know how to organise a script, communicate with and organise cast, good at teaching improv games and willing to learn a few tricks. The right person for these two positions will be driven and organized as well as have good communication skills.
In all cases the minimum schedule you must keep is:
Rehearsals are on Sundays from noon until we are done. We rehearse all 6 scenes and any additional possible ‘moments’ we may have to face. Even if you are not in a scene you will remain present as the actual performance takes place over a 12 hour day (even though each scene is only approx. 20 minutes) and therefore all of us must remain aware of the whole schedule and what happens in each scene. The Theatre in the crowd format also is at the mercy of audience additions. We must be prepared for such things. Some days that only takes 5 hours while other days it may take 10. Rehearsals are only on the one day of the week. We do not do multiple rehearsals during the week. If a character swings a sword an additional rehearsal could be added. You can not miss more then 4 rehearsals for any reason. Please check your schedule ahead of time and understand that the whole cast must rely on each other in order to make this the best show for our audience.
All cast and head team members camp on site. If you are unable to camp please consider a volunteer position that is more casual.
First rehearsal and introduction of the characters: Sunday March 23.
First full rehearsal : Sunday April 6.
Every Sunday from that point on unless we have a parade or promo to attend.
On site rehearsal: July 6
On site for dress rehearsal: July 9
Remaining on site for the 3 1/2 day event July 10-13
If you would to meet up with me for consideration to any of the above (and the roles listed on the webpage link) please contact me before March 13, 2014. I will plan to meet with you quickly after you have contacted me. Locations I commonly meet are the Gilmore Skytrain Station Starbucks or the Kingsway and Patterson Waves.
