Or, for more information...
...call 972-938-3247. Ask for extension 16, which is the extension for Coy Sevier, General Manager. Not only is he the man you want to speak to about getting an audition time, but he will also pull no punches when it comes to the amount of time and committment involved. If you've got questions, he's the man to ask.

Something they don't mention on the website (but they will tell you in auditions): Workshops start in late February and generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday until the Faire opens. And those workshops are required. Failure to show up will get you dropped from the Company. Failure to show up on time will get you sent home.

Not trying to scare anyone, really - but it ends up being a HUGE committment of money (between mileage, food, and costuming) and time (16 weeks in all). It's not for everyone - especially now that they have Friend of Faire passes, which not only serves as your season pass, but gives you preferred parking and allows you access to free ice water and Gatorade, a perk previously reserved for participants only.

Just my 2p. :-)

WE're thinking alike
I know someone whose 13 year old wants to audition. I think she's going to, and will probably be great. But I actually pulled out my note book from last year. I handed her me survival handbook, expectatons page, motos and goals, costume requirements, all the written homework, etc. I even warned here that rehearsals are 9:00-7:00. To me it's so worth doing, but if she is going to commit to this she needs to know that it is more than playing.

I was wanting to work for Michael Glenn's Contact Juggling/Poi tent during Scarborough. I was told that you could get a camping spot for the entire length of the Faire for $250, so I planned on staying there and hanging out with boardies and other metroplex-dwellers during the week. However, I've recently learned that the first couple of weeks of Faire are during the last few weeks of classes, including finals, so that plan is out. If I can find a consistent ride up to Scarborough each weekend while school is still in session, I may still work for Michael. Otherwise, we'll see what happens.
