The Winnipesaukee Playhouse
The Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith, New Hampshire, is looking to fill a role in a traditional British Panto. Panto (short for “pantomime”) is a joyously wacky, irreverent retelling of a classic fairy tale and a popular holiday tradition in England since the Victorian Era. Panto is a wacky mish-mash of dance, music (standards and pop hits), groan-worthy comedy bits, and the ever-popular “Panto Dame,” a wisecracking breeches/drag role.
The Playhouse is seeking a male-identifying actor of any racial/ethnic background to play “BUTTONS,” the zany comic bellhop at Stoneybroke Hall, the Inn owned by Ella’s father, Baron Basil Hardup. Anyone applying should be a competent tap dancer.
TO APPLY: Send video of 16-32 bars of a pop or pop-musical selection (or vocal reel) and 1-2 minute comedic monologue (or acting reel) to [email protected] -- If you have a dance reel, we would love to see it—especially if it includes tap! If necessary, we may reach out to schedule a Zoom callback.
REHEARSAL: December 4 – 14 (day off Dec 11)
PERFORMANCE: December 15 – 31 (days off Dec 19-21 and Dec 24-26)
SALARY: $400 / week
ADDITIONAL COMPENSATION: Housing, Gym Membership, Travel Stipend (for out-of-state actors, amount depends on point of origin)
Dec 4, 2023 - Dec 31, 2023
$400.00 – $400.00 per week
