6:14 PM - Open casting call for Des Moines Ren Faire 2009 (posted by Webmaster)
TO: NEW CAST MEMBERS & APPRENTICE VOLUNTEERS
RE: ACTING/PREP WORKSHOP
FROM: GREG SCHMIDT

Hey All -

Our first summer workshop for "newbies" and apprentices, veteran cast members, shy merchants and all who need a brush-up on their festival acting (or in speaking the queen's English) will be August 15th at 5pm.

It will take place at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire location behind Sleepy Hollow Sports Park in the Feasting Hall. No costumes required. Dress casual. This will be a theatrical training session, of sorts.

There will be time allotted afterwards for any solo or group act that might wish to audition a stage show or "street" act.

Be prepared to have fun. Try to arrive without children or pets in tow.

Gregory Schmidt,
Producer-director
