Do I need to attend an audition in order to be cast in the show?
Our audition process is very specific to the intricate and unique nature of our show. It is imperative that all interested performers attend a live audition so that we can adequately assess them on the show’s very specific needs. We also use our audition process as a way of getting to know the candidates on a personal level, so we would love to meet you in person. All of the performers in Marvel Universe LIVE! are part of a hard-working, cohesive team, and at the audition, we look to see how you would fit into our team and family atmosphere.
If I can’t make it to an audition, can I send in a video?
We prefer to have the opportunity to meet all interested performers in person at one of our live auditions around the world. We love to see a video of your exceptional skills and tricks that are unable to be showcased in the audition setting. However, we use video submissions only as a means of supplementing the material that we captured at a live audition in which you attended.
What do I need to prepare for the audition?
The vast majority of the audition process will consist of learning stage combat choreography from the show, which we will teach you on-site. Following that portion of the audition, we may ask some performers to do a freestyle demonstration of some of their tricks or skills that were not showcased in the stage combat portion. However, having something prepared for this is not a requirement.
What types of weapons training are you looking for?
Martial Arts Weapons: spear, bo staff, single and double stick escrima, three section staff, chain whip
Stage Combat Weapons: long sword, broadsword, two-handed knife or dagger, quarterstaff, cutlass.
Specialty Weapons: Flaming swords, whips, poi. Firearm experience is a plus.
How much do performers on the show get paid?
All of our performers receive a competitive weekly salary, which includes health benefits and travel. We also provide a contract completion bonus. Additional details are discussed in the contracting process.
What should I wear to the audition?
We kindly request that all performers come dressed in fitted athletic attire. All of our costumes in the show feature performers wearing form-fitted unitards, body harnesses, and stunt gear, so it is important that we are able to accurately assess your silhouette for these roles. It is also very important that applicants with long hair have their hair pulled back away from their face, and for everyone’s safety, please remove all jewelry and piercings. We also kindly request that performers do not wear hats or accessories that may distract or hinder your performance. In most audition venues, it is also required that performers are in bare feet or socks while working on the mats.
Can I still attend the audition if I don’t have a headshot or resume?
We prefer that candidates provide us with their headshot and resume. However, if you are unable to provide those, our comprehensive registration process will include us taking your photograph, as well as capturing your contact information, measuring your height, and entering some brief performance history. In all cases, please be sure to arrive during the registration hour to leave time to complete these steps.
