Minnesota Renaissance Festival Auditions: May 31

If you’re a fan of donning your finest burlap gear, grabbing a mug of mead and insulting the wenches each year at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, maybe you should take it up a notch.

From the Chaska Herald:

The Minnesota Renaissance Festival holds auditions for its 2009 season at Mall of America on May 31 from noon to 5 p.m. in Sears Court.

The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is casting for musicians, ensembles, street performers, dancers, stage combat performers and actors, according to a Renaissance Festival press release.

Participants need not have performance experience, but must provide their own music or monologue. Participants interested in becoming a costumed street performer/character will be interviewed, and if accepted, will be invited to participate in the Minnesota Renaissance Festival Performance Workshop, and will learn the craft of interactive street performance.

Performers of all ages are encouraged to come to the auditions. Call the Minnesota Renaissance Festival office number at (952) 445-7361 for additional information or questions and to schedule an audition time.

Are you a fan of the Renaissance Festival? I just became a fan on Facebook, which I’ll admit just feels wrong without more puns on the page.

    I wonder what the auditions will be like. I’m imagining something similar to American Idol. If that’s the case, I hope they allow a live audience.

    That’s a great idea. Also, it should be like Big Brother where the actors can’t leave the gates of the festival once they enter — for the entire summer.
