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 31st Season

Where:

Rossland, BC. A historical 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 1890s.

Actor Salary: a guaranteed salary of $3575 for the season (PLUS free accommodation for non-locals)

Season: June 6 – August 28, 2017

  • Rehearsal schedule runs from June 6 – June 30
  • Performance season opens July 1 and ends
    August 26
  • End of season “clean up” is August 27 & 28

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 (comedy preferred…our shows are light comedy)
  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 prepared a short dance piece that demonstrates their ability to do a high kick, the ability to do the splits (even a fake one), 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.
