Professional summer theatre is a rewarding experience. It is an opportunity to work with five different highly skilled directors from around the country. An opportunity to play roles that young actors would wait years for. A time to make contacts in the business and make decisions about yourself. It is also a season of hard work intended for those who wish to work in a professional, highly-focused environment. Applicants need to have the ability to get along well with others. Summer theatre at Arundel Barn Playhouse is an opportunity to add to your resume and to make contacts in the NYC area. We look forward to discussing the opportunities at the Arundel Barn Playhouse with you. Peace.
