Oktoberfest celebration in Bethlehem
BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

If you like lederhosen, beer and performing, the folks at ArtsQuest has a gig for you!

ArtsQuest, based in Bethlehem, is looking for actors and actresses to perform during its third annual Oktoberfest.

The festivities are set for October 4-6 and 11-13 at the SteelStacks campus.

Actors will portray characters typically seen at a German Oktoberfest celebration, complete with authentic German attire, and interact with festival guests while in costume.

Auditions will be held July 28 from noon -5 p.m. in the Banko Family Gallery of the Banana Factory, at 25 W. Third St. in Bethlehem.

No preparation is necessary, as auditions will be primarily improv-based.

The ability to perform with a German accent is encouraged, but not required.

All actors will be paid for their Oktoberfest performances.

To set up an audition time, email ArtsQuest programming manager Ryan Hill at rhill@artsquest.org. The email should include an attached resume and headshot, as well as the preferred audition time.

No phone calls will be accepted.
