PIGEON FORGE, Tennessee (Thursday, December 16, 2021) – With 2022 only a few weeks away, Dollywood is gearing up for the upcoming season—which begins on Saturday, March 12—by casting entertainers ready to find their place in the spotlight.
Auditions will take place at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, on Saturday, Jan. 15 and Saturday, Jan. 22, as well as the Marriott in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on Saturday, Feb. 19. Auditions are by appointment only and must be scheduled by calling (865) 429-9752. Appointments will only be taken Wednesday, Jan. 5—Friday, Jan. 7 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Appointments will be accepted until all slots are full. Walk-ins will not be accepted, and only auditionees are allowed to enter. Call backs will occur on the same day as the audition.
Members of Dollywood’s entertainment team are looking to cast singers, dancers who sing, improvisational actors, costumed characters and musicians who sing. Performers must be at least 18 years old. Available roles for the 2022 season include full-time positions, as well as seasonal—summer and Christmas—opportunities.
Singers, improvisational actors and costumed characters should prepare a verse and chorus of two songs in their preferred style, and should bring clearly marked sheet music in the correct key. For improvisational actors and costumed characters, one selection should be comedic in nature. A piano accompanist will be provided, or auditionees may accompany themselves on guitar or any other hand-held instrument. All auditionees should bring a resume and headshot.
