If interested in being considered, please email your headshot, resume, and any applicable video footage to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those selected for an audition will be sent sides to self-tape. Selected applicants will also be asked to self-tape a jazz and/or pop song (acapella). All roles must sing. Although we are looking for both immediate and future replacements, all those auditioning must be available to begin rehearsals/training immediately.
Rehearsals are held during the daytime, Monday-Friday, for three weeks leading up to the actor's debut. Time frames are slightly flexible in regards to performer's daytime availability.
The show runs Saturdays (5-7 p.m.) in NYC, as well other nights throughout the week based on private party requests.
TRUFFLES is currently an open-ended run at Swing 46 in midtown. Actors should be committed to joining our ensemble for at least several months.
Various 'brush up' and 'put in' rehearsals for cast members are scheduled on an 'as needed' basis. All those auditioning MUST have OPEN availability on Saturday nights and three weeks of daytime availability for potential rehearsals/training leading up to their opening.
Pays: $70/show and $15 per rehearsal. Rehearsals generally last no more than 2-3 hours at a time.
