auditions and employment

actors

Actors, singers, and dancers are all welcome to audition for our productions! Our shows have included cast members ranging in age from 6 to over 80, and we always have a wide range of roles available. While most of our roles call for both singing and acting, some are acting-only roles (non-singing), and a few are movement-only roles (non-vocal). All cast members are paid.

We are currently auditioning singer-actors of all ages and backgrounds for our annual oratorio King of Glory, as well as for our upcoming Early Stages readings and our landmark 11th season (2018-2019). Actors are asked to prepare a song of any style, and to be prepared to read from a script. To schedule an audition, please drop us a line. We look forward to hearing from you!

 

musicians

Our instrumentalists are the musical backbone of every work we produce. While some of our productions call for a "classical" (string-based) orchestra, others use a smaller, piano-based ensemble, or even a pop-style band (with guitar, drums, etc.). In some cases, a work may be written for an orchestra, but we'll also need a pianist to work with us in rehearsals. Our orchestras have included professional musicians, advanced students, and even talented community members. Anyone who plays at a professional level is welcome to audition for our shows. Please contact us and become a part of our history-making tradition!

 

PRoduction TEAM members

Every production has different crew requirements – some require a large costume team, while others have lots of scenery to design and build. BgO is fortunate to have worked with a number of gifted designers in the community, but we are always on the look-out for talented new collaborators. Whether you are a lighting designer, set designer, costumer, makeup artist, carpenter, stagehand, graphic designer, or you work in another area of the arts, we may have an opportunity for you to get involved. Just as with actors and musicians, we have slightly different needs for each production. Please tell us about your skills – we would love to get to know you!
