Gulliver's Travels

Welcome to ACT's 2018 Spring production of Gulliver's Travels.

Guides: Only one of the following paragraphs will be displayed at a time. Please make sure the information is accurate for each case.

regpreview: Registration for this production will be open from Feb 1st through March 1st.

regopened: Registration for this production is now open.

regclosed: Registration for this production is now closed. E-mail notifications will be sent after the lottery, and we will update this page at that time.

regclosed_mailed: Registration for this production is now closed and acceptance e-mails have been sent. If you have not received a notification, please contact the producers.

There will be two casts for this production.

At the end of the registration period, acceptance into the production will be decided based on a lottery. Children of ACT Board members have a limited guarantee of acceptance into the production. All ACTors accepted into the production, including board children, must audition for casting. Specific roles are offered to ACTors at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.

Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show. You will not be required for every rehearsal, only for those where your character is called. You can look at the schedule links for last summer's productions to see how this works. Absences are strongly discouraged throughout the production, and attendance is mandatory from the beginning of dress rehearsals on, so please plan accordingly. All actors and at least one parent are also expected to attend the first meeting, where we will share more details about the production and have sign-ups for volunteer committees.

All payments or payment arrangements must be secured before auditions. There are no refunds after the start of auditions. Although we often have a waitlist, bringing actors into the production after auditions presents numerous challenges for the staff and does not give the late arrivals a fair start to the production.

More details regarding the audition process will be posted after acceptances are mailed out.

As is now our standard policy, final casting decisions will not be made until after the first week of rehearsals. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast and explore the show.

About the Show

The play takes audiences on all four famous voyages, from Lilliput to Brobdingnag to outer space and to the land of the noble Houyhnhnms and the comic Yahoos. Gulliver's Travels is a joy for actors and audiences everywhere.

Offstage Opportunities

Offstage opportunities are available for all our productions. Contact us for more information.
