Dollywood Announces Audition Schedule for 2022 Theme Park Entertainment Offerings
With 2022 only a few weeks away, Dollywood is gearing up for the new season, which begins on Saturday, March 12. Entertainers who are ready to find their place in the spotlight should start planning for auditions now.
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—both summer and Christmas opportunities.
Plan Your Audition
Auditions will take place at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, on Saturday, January 15 and Saturday, January 22, as well as at the Marriott in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on Saturday, February 19. Auditions are by appointment only and must be scheduled by calling (865) 429-9752. Appointments will only be taken Wednesday, January 5–Friday, January 7 between 9 AM and 4 PM. Appointments will be accepted until all slots are full. Walk-ins will not be accepted, and only auditionees are allowed to enter. Callbacks will occur on the same day as the audition.
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 handheld instrument. All auditionees should bring a resume and headshot. Some auditionees may be called back for an additional movement or vocal audition.
