Beijing Playhouse
Audition Announcement
Robin Hood
Auditions: Sept 21 and 22

SHOW: Robin Hood. 24 adult and 6 child actors and singers are needed for this Christmas musical comedy.

Join Beijing Playhouse for song and dance this Christmas. A fairy tale for the children with a whole level of humor for the adults—a Christmas musical comedy for adults and children alike. In true British comedy tradition, audience members are invited to cheer and boo and hiss as Robin, Maid Marion, and Friar Tuck rob from Santa and give to the poor. No, wait, that's not it. Uh, rob from the rich and give to Santa. Or something like that. Join the friends of Sherwood Forest as they help King John discover the magic of Christmas. Be prepared for a whole new zany twist on a classic story.

Robin Hood has served up raucous family entertainment on the West End every Christmas for centuries. A cast of 30, with crazy Christmas costumes and happy music, make this show perfect for families—especially children.

AUDITION DATES: Sunday, September 21, 2014 and Monday, September 22, 2014 at 6:30 pm.

LOCATION: Beijing Playhouse’s auditions and rehearsals for Robin Hood are at British School in Sanlitun. Call-backs and performances are at National Olympic Sports Center Theatre near the Bird’s Nest.

ROLE(S): All 30 roles open. Ability to perform in English is required; but English as a native language is not required. Auditions are open and anyone can come. Experienced actors are encouraged. And we love discovering new talent. We request that interested actors complete the Actor Audition Form in advance. It helps the directors. (Request one and we’ll send it to you.) We’re looking for 3 boys, age 6-17; 12 men, age 18-60; 2 men, age 60-80, 3 girls, age 6-17; 8 women, age 18-60; 2 women, age 60-80.

AUDITION FORMAT: You'll do a live reading from the script and will perform scenes from the show with other actors. You will be given a song to sing. Monologues are optional, but not required. If you are a non-native English speaker, we strongly suggest bringing a memorized 60 second English monologue.

PAY: This is volunteer fun.

PERFORMANCE DATES: Performances are weekday and Saturday evenings and weekend matinees, December 5-21, 2014. Rehearsals are evenings at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm in October and November in Sanlitun. Performances are at National Olympic Sports Center Theatre NOSC theatre.
