“Cowtown Capers” Acting jobs in Dallas / Fort Worth area for ongoing Interactive western themed show.
Location: Fort Worth, Dallas
Cowtown Capers, an ongoing interactive theater production has announced auditions for paid roles in the show.
Hawthorne Avenue Productions in Fort Worth Texas is currently accepting headshots and resumes. Auditions will be by appointment only to be held at the end of March.
The show is casting a variety of paid roles, see the breakdowns below. Actors will be compensated $100.
Cowtown Capers will be an ongoing production to entertain Fort Worth visitors. The first series of Capers will be set in The Stockyards and have an Old West theme. Guests will know only their show time and meeting place. ‘The mayor’ will greet them, explain a threat to the community from Bad Bart and deputize them as members of a posse charged to ‘clean up the town’.
Guests will follow clues to various locations (mostly indoors) where actors will be placed. The story line and characters are tongue-in-cheek takes on stereotypical western movie themes and roles (think ‘Blazing Saddles’). We need actors with strong improvisational and people skills, as well as a sense of fun and humor. Our goal is for everyone involved with the production to be having a good time.
We will provide sides for the auditions and ask for a run-through of the lines. For the actual tours, however, you will need to hit certain plot points to move the story/tour along, but will have the freedom to develop your character.
