Backstage Theatre Auditions

The Backstage Theatre in Breckenridge is currently casting for their upcoming world premiere production of "Hidden," a powerful new play written by award-winning writers, Jamie Bruss and Christopher Willard ("Belle and the Beast," "Tribal Tales of Africa").

All positions are paid and lodging is available for actors traveling from outside Summit County. Rehearsals for The Backstage Theatre production begin in mid-February and are flexible with the schedules of the actors.
