2012 Mid Michigan Renaissance Festival Casting Call

Auditions Extended for February 18th and 19th

Mid Michigan Renaissance Festival

Mid Michigan Renaissance Festival is looking for hard working dedicated actors to join them this year. Help us make the Journey into 1543 Germany, a small village of Cleves, with a wound too tight Duke, preparing for the visit from the King and Queen. With his mischievous sisters constantly causing problems, his wife always trying to underhand him and his aloof Mother talking to his recently deceased father how will anything be ready in time. Help us bring our Fairytales to life in the Children’s Knoll, when the Wicked Witch forgets what Fairy Tale she is on and gives Hansel and Gretel a poisoned apple, and traps Snow White to fatten her up! We also need roaming towns’ people! A town flirt to win the hearts of patrons, or skeeve around as the towns’ thief. All ages, and experience welcome!
