Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire
Cast Troupe Auditions
Calling All Actors! Positions Available for the
37th Season of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire!
2017 marks the 37th season of magic inside the castle gates, starting August 5th and continuing every Saturday, Sunday, and Labor Day Monday through October 29th. The entertainers at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire are the main attraction, and the Faire offers entertainment for all ages. The Faire has two different acting groups, the Blackfryars (a part-time acting group) and the Bacchanalians (the professional acting company). These two acting troupes perform a season-long display of music, dance, kid’s activities, and action-packed shows, from the Ultimate Joust and Human Chess Match to improvisational theater and stunt shows.
Bacchanalian Acting Company
The Bacchanalian Company is our cast of professional actors, provided with housing and paid competitive wages. Our Bacchanalian actors will learn and utilize a variety of skills, including dialects, improvisation, music, puppetry, stunts and combat.
Please Note that Bacchanalian Auditions are now closed. If you would like more information on participating on this cast, please call 717-665-7021 ext. 137.
Blackfryar Acting Company
The Blackfryar Company is comprised of part-time experienced actors, enthusiastic novices with no prior theater experience, college students, senior citizens and everything in between! This cast is primarily responsible for bringing the village to life by creating interesting and fun 16th century characters!
Blackfryars are trained volunteers who are compensated with training from experienced musicians, actors, directors and stunt coordinators in a professional environment in this beautiful outdoor venue. During performance days, Blackfryars over the age of 18 receive stipends, and all Blackfryars receive vouchers for lunch!
