At the Zoological Society of Milwaukee

 

Kohl’s Wild Theater (KWT) is seeking experienced professional actors to join the KWT acting company. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, February 27th. Actors in the KWT Company perform multiple roles in a variety of plays and musicals for young audiences. All roles are within an age range of 20-35. Experience with musical theater, puppetry, and comedy improv is a plus. For the audition, please prepare two contrasting musical theatre songs (16-32 bar cut) as well as two contrasting one-minute monologues. An accompanist will be provided. Callbacks will be held March 6th and 7th.

 

Actors will be considered for the spring/summer season which has three possible start dates on April 1st, April 15th, or May 14th. Different actors will be selected for different start dates based on actor availability and casting needs.

 

Auditions will be by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, actors should send their headshot and resume to davem@zoosociety.org and write “audition” in the subject line.

 

Program Information:

 

Kohl’s Wild Theater is a professional theater for young audiences that is a part of the education department of the Zoological Society of Milwaukee. Using drama, puppetry, and music, KWT teaches lessons on environmental conservation and the importance of caring for animals. KWT performs seven days per week during the summer months at the Milwaukee County Zoo and other venues in the community. During the school year, KWT tours to schools and other community organizations within a one-hour radius of the Zoo.

 

If cast, actors must have most daytimes available for rehearsals and performances. During the school year, most performance shifts occur on the weekdays between 6:30 AM and 4:30 PM. During the summer months, performances occur on weekdays and weekends. Once hired, actors join our part-time staff of professional actors that learn multiple shows and roles in a repertory format. Company members typically work 15-25 hours per week. Rehearsal and performance schedules are typically released four weeks in advance. Starting pay is $12 per hour. Additional benefits include flexible scheduling and professional development workshops.
