Job Details

DESCRIPTION

Seeking performers for a Quest Day of the "Camp Half-Blood" experience, an outdoor immersive children's LARP (live-action role-playing) adventure. By bringing tales from mythology, history, and fiction to life, we plunge our campers into the center of the action. They are transported to another world and given the chance to prove themselves as legendary heroes. There are (foam) sword fights, puzzles, negotiations, and performance challenges as they journey to complete their heroic Quest. Learn more about our company on our website.

Our Quest days involve two rotations of an hour-long quest experience, in which actors will interact with the children to guide them through this short story in an immersive improvisational (and activity-driven) environment.

The Quest story: When Eris, the Goddess of Strife, ruins the Golden Apple Picking Extravaganza by changing the Apples of the Hesperides into Apples of Discord, our demigods must retrieve the cursed fruit to save some of our favorite heroes and camp itself from falling into unending chaos.

Roles:

ATALANTA: Lead, female, 18+ Heroic Ally: An adventurer once famously distracted by different golden apples, Atalanta knows about tricky fruit. She got wind of Eris’s plan and wants to help our demigods Acting Techniques: Improv, Fight Training: Stage Combat

ERIS: Lead, female, 18+ Antagonist: The Goddess of Discord and Strife, Eris has a wicked sense of humor. Creating strife and discord is her job, but last summer, things just went too well at camp!
Acting Techniques: Improv, Fight Training: Stage Combat

LADON / DRACO: Lead, Any Gender, 18+ The dragon who usually guards the Apples of the Hesperides just couldn’t help taking a nibble of some of them after Eris transformed them. Acting Techniques: Improv, Fight Training: Stage Combat

HERAKLES / HERCULES: Lead, Male, 18+ The legendary hero was so excited to come to the Festival and just get a Golden Apple without having to fight anyone for it this time! Eris spoiled his lovely outing – and now he’s Hulking (Hercing?) out. Acting Techniques: Improv, Fight Training: Stage Combat

LOKI / PUCK / ANANSI: Lead, Any Gender, 18+ These trickster gods were drawn to camp by the chaotic potential, which they find very funny, and will need to be tricked into giving us an Apple
Acting Techniques: Improv, Fight Training: Stage Combat
