Renaissance festival to hold auditions

by: NEWS-TIMES FILE PHOTO - There is a wide variety of open positions for the Renaissance festival in Hillsboro this year, but not all involve equines. Hear ye, hear ye! The Queen is coming back to Hillsboro this summer and is in need of some assistance.

Her Majesty is again assembling a resident troupe of actors, dancers, singers, musicians, stage combatants, jugglers, acrobats and storytellers to form the Oregon Renaissance Festival of Hillsboro Players Company.

Open call and appointment auditions will be held Friday, May 30, through Sunday, June 1, at the Washington County Fair Complex in Hillsboro.

Limited paid and volunteer positions are available. All company members will receive free training to enhance or acquire performing skills through various workshops in improvisation, period language, Renaissance dance and stage combat. Previous experience with improv or Shakespeare is a plus, but not necessary.

The second annual Oregon Renaissance Festival of Hillsboro will be open weekends (and Labor Day) Aug. 16 to Sept. 21 at the fair complex.

Visit oregonrenfest.com for more information about the festival and detailed instructions on how to audition.
