Auditioning with Theatre IV on Tour
Theatre IV holds auditions for actors and singers to perform in our touring season for young audiences. For information about future auditions, please email Ford Flannagan, or call (804) 783-1688 ext. 1120.
Each year Theatre IV presents more than 2,000 performances of Children's Classics (such as The Jungle Book, Stuart Little, Treasure Island, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Historical Dramas (such as Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, I Have A Dream, Buffalo Soldier, Amelia Earhart, Lewis and Clark), and Social Issue Plays (dealing with such topics as Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Child Abuse, Teen Pregnancy, Recycling, etc.).
Starting salaries for our touring actors are $370.00 per week (before taxes). Actors touring for Theatre IV work under non-A.E.A. contracts for periods ranging from 6 to 20 weeks. Theatre IV provides per diem and hotels/motels for overnight tours, and all actors are eligible for an end-of-tour bonus that amounts to $10.00 per performance week. Paid rehearsals begin in either September, January, or March in RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.
Supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Virginia Commission for the Arts, Theatre IV is an equal opportunity employer. All auditionees are asked to perform two short, contrasting monologues. Musical performers should also prepare two contrasting, 16-bar songs and bring sheet music in the appropriate key. An accompanist will be provided.
Auditions are held at the Sara Belle and Neil November Theatre (formerly the Empire Theatre) at Virginia Rep Center, 114 W. Broad St., Richmond, Virginia 23220.
