12th Annual Cast-Call Outs
Join the Cast of the 2016 Fishers Renaissance Faire
Lords and Ladies, the Fishers Renaissance Faire (FRF) is casting for our 2016 Faire season with many opportunities for people with a wide range of performance skills and experience. Cast Call outs are for volunteers interested in portraying historical 16th century English Nobility from Queen Elizabeth’s Court, creatures based on Western European mythology, International merchants from the Far East and Africa plus high energy townsfolk from the picturesque English village of Billericay. FRF encourages volunteers of all ethnicities and backgrounds to audition.
Please note, in order to be a Cast member you must be at least 14 years of age. Volunteers under 18 years of age must bring a parent or legal guardian to Cast Call Outs to sign permission on volunteer forms. We highly encourage families to join together for a great Summer/Fall experience. This is a full one year commitment as a volunteer living history re-enactor with the Fishers Renaissance Faire Theatre Guilds.
Please note: you must be at least 18 years old to carry and perform with a stage combat weapon.

Call Out Requirements:
No experience necessary
Must be willing to make or purchase Faire clothing according to our Costume requirements. FRF Performer Costume Guidelines require garments to be based on historically authentic 16th century clothing. Please take into consideration your budget and time management for clothing choices before interviewing and committing to a character role/Guild placement. For example, Peasant clothing can be made fairly inexpensively while Nobility and Fairy garments can be much more expensive to make/sew.
Volunteers must also be prepared to participate in acting improvisation exercises at once a month Sunday rehearsals, 2pm-4pm at the Fishers library from May through September. Cast are expected to attend all rehearsals, a dress rehearsal in September, at least two promotional events, and both full Faire days in October.
Experienced actors may recite a memorized monologue no longer than 45 seconds.
Persons interested in general volunteering or security at the 2016 Fishers Renaissance Faire should also contact the cast director. Many volunteer credit hours will be available for cast and general volunteers/security fulfilling volunteer requirements. Ideal for Community groups, Scouts and Honor Societies!
