We are pleased to announce AUDITIONS for Barnyard Theatre's 2016 production of
An Almanac for Farmers and Lovers in Mexico by Kate Tarker, directed by Eden Tomich.

How to sign up:
Please fill out the audition form.

Friday, June 17 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

While the audition form gives the options to select a time slot, you do not need to sign-up for one - just show up at the audition location during the time period that we will be there. People who have requested a particular time slot will be given priority at that time, otherwise we will see folks as they arrive. We do recommend that you arrive early, however, so that we will be able to see everyone.

If you are unavailable on June 17 or 18, or need to reserve a specific time slot, please note that on the audition form.

Auditions will be held in Davis, we will contact you with the address.

What to prepare:
Please prepare a one-minute light and/or comedic monologue.  If you need some ideas, we have a few suggestions!

Call-backs will be held on Sunday June 19, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Historic Schmeiser Barn, 35125 County Road 31, Davis.  (Directions)

An Almanac for Farmers and Lovers in Mexico
Playwright: Kate Tarker
Director: Eden Tomich
Rehearsals: June 24 - July 21 (schedule to be determined, but will include weekends and week day evenings).  Rehearsals will be held at the Historic Schmeiser Barn, 35125 County Road 31, Davis.

Flora and Pelé eagerly prepare for their wedding in Pelé’s hometown until Pelé suddenly transforms into a hummingbird and Flora must fight to keep their love - and their wedding - alive. This play is a magically lyrical and comical look at love, youth, and true commitment.

FLORA (F), mid-twenties, American. Conflicted but driven.
MOLLY (F), mid-twenties, American. Ethereal and artistic.
PELÉ (M), late twenties, Mexican. A little bit wild Byronic hero, a little bit regular guy.
ZOE (F), mid-twenties, American. Perpetually dirty, does not shave her legs or brush her hair, really looking forward to her thirties.
HENRY (M), mid-twenties, American. Part punk anarchist, part academic.
JUDGE (F), in her forties or fifties, Mexican. A determined bureaucrat with modest taste in clothing and behavior.
SAN CRISTÓBAL (M or Third Gender). Physically a little older, shape shifty. Born in Greece, but at home in any warm climate. Wears robes with a bit of flair.
