Mutton & Mead 2013 Looking for Local Talent

From a Mutton & Mead press release:

Mutton and Mead Medieval Festival seeks Actors, Singers, Musicians and other performers for Shire Cast Auditions,  January 12th & 13th 2013.

Mutton & Mead is a Robin Hood-themed festival held in Montague, MA, at the Millers Falls R&G Club on June 22nd & 23rd, 2013. We will create a medieval shire (Nottingham) & Tavern (The Mutton & Mead Inne), populate it with characters (our Shire Cast), and then tell the exciting tale of Robin Hood through stage and street performances over the course of a day filled with great shopping, great food and great fun!  The festival will include an Armored Joust, a variety of Stage & Street Shows, Historical & Artisan Demonstrations as well as games and activities for all ages.

Mutton and Mead is in search of actors, singers, musicians and dancers both novice and professional to help us bring the streets of our humble village alive! The Shire Cast is at the heart of our festival’s experience. Cast members play roles from Robin Hood, The Mutton and Mead Inne, and the Shire of Nottingham; breathing life into this age old tale. 

Not looking for a major role, or maybe you're just interested in singing with us?  We are also seeking “extras.” These performers play a less involved role as the day unfolds. Regardless of the size of your part, we provide training to give you the skills to rock the shire on festival day!

Mutton and Mead is also seeking Support Crew, (Set Designers, Artists & Painters, Carpenters & Skilled Builders, and Costuming Help) Vendors, (Artisans, Crafters, Food Vendors) and General Administrative help. You will be joining a lively community of imaginative and fun people, committed to creating a unique event. 

Location:  Auditions will be scheduled between Saturday, January 12th through Sunday, January 13th at the Montague Grange hall, 36 Main Street in Montague Center. Drop-in times will be posted on the audition page. 

Mutton and Mead aims to transport patrons to another time and place where they are given a unique interactive experience, and to provide a venue for members of the local and extended community to support and showcase their talents.
