Actors! Looking for Summer employment? Want to work at your craft AND get paid?!

Join the cast of the Rossland
Gold Fever Follies
in its 32nd Season

Where:

Rossland, BC. A historical gold mining city and Canada’s mountain bike capital nestled in the heart of the Kootenays

What:

A historical musical theatre summer show based on the gold rush days of the 1890’s.

Actor Salary: a guaranteed salary of $4000 for the season (PLUS free accommodation for non-locals)

Season: June 5 – August 27, 2017

  • Rehearsal schedule runs from June 5 – June 30
  • Performance season opens June 30 and ends
    August 25
  • End of season “clean up” is August 26 & 27

We typically perform 2 shows a day, 5 days a week with Sunday and Monday off. An average work day is approximately 5-6 hours. The rehearsal schedule varies. Actors should expect to have approximately 300 hours of work (and “play”). Female actors in particular will want to be in good physical shape (cardio) as they will be learning the cancan.

ALL AUDITIONS SHOULD INCLUDE:

  1. short monologue
  2. song of your choice PLUS the Canadian anthem sung a capella
  3. dance and/or musical talents
***Please include a headshot and resumé***

Our shows ALWAYS include a couple of cancan numbers, and whenever possible, some tap numbers. Therefore, all females auditioning are encouraged to have a short dance piece prepared that demonstrates their ability to do a high kick. The ability to do the splits (even fake ones), and/or a cartwheel (or other gymnastic abilities) can be demonstrated separately. All candidates are encouraged to demonstrate any tap skills.

Dance training is available, when required.
