Auditions will consists of a monologue and dialogue (sent out ahead of time), as well as some improvisational activities. To schedule an audition slot, please contact Brian Cushing at email@example.com This program has a set cast list. While we encourage everyone to audition, as with any audition process we cannot guarantee you a place in the cast.

Male and female interpreters needed to portray the enslaved population.
First person interpreters will portray members of the Croghan and Clark families, as well as close friends visiting Locust Grove in the year 1816.The goal of this program is to educate our guests by bringing history to life before their eyes and create the kind of tangible experience they cannot get from a book or on a screen. Interpreters will participate in different Locust Grove events throughout the year including our Fourth of July Open House and Christmastide event in December.
In addition to our House Cast, we have a need for in-costume dancers to demonstrate period dances in the Visitors Center during our Christmastide event in December. Members of the dance company will perform dances from the early 19th century for visitors, speak with visitors, and encourage visitor participation in the dances. Dance instruction and rehearsals will be held prior to Christmastide, as well as workshops about costuming and this time period. Auditions for dance company members will be held later this spring. Contact Mary Beth Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will also be looking for in-costume guides to lead visitors through their 19th century Christmastide experience. Guides will escort visitors from the Visitors Center to the House and outbuildings, setting the scene as they embark on their journey to the Croghan’s party. Guides must be comfortable speaking with people and willing to learn the history of the House in order to answer visitor’s questions. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who enjoys public speaking and is comfortable in front of a group.

Generally, our drama clubs run once a week for eight weeks during each semester (fall and spring). They always culminate in the performance of a short play. Instructors may teach one or several clubs each week.

· If you have directing, stage management, and/ or formal teaching experience, that’s a bonus (but it’s not required).
