Horizon is now seeking male African American non-Equity adult actors for paid roles in the second production of our season, WILD WITH HAPPY. This uproarious comedy by Colman Domingo (Oscar nominated for Rustin) was a huge Off-Broadway hit. Actors of all orientations are strongly encouraged to submit! 

SYNOPSIS: Gil is a man on a mission to find the perfect resting place for his mother. When his vivacious mother passes, Gil returns home and decides to have her cremated – despite his raucous Aunt Glo’s desire for a traditional funeral and burial. Then his flamboyant best friend (Mo) takes him on an unexpected road trip with his mother’s ashes, and a furious Aunt Glo follows in hot pursuit with the sensitive funeral director (Terry) in tow. Both outrageously funny and immensely touching, Wild With Happy is a wild ride through love, loss, and just maybe, The Most Magical Place on Earth.  

AUDITION DATES: Non-Equity actors may either request an in-person audition time, submit an audition video, or both. Videos should be submitted no later than Sunday, June 16, 2024. In-person auditions are June 18, 2024 and callbacks will be held June 24, 2024.

Horizon is now seeking Equity and non-Equity adult actors for paid roles in AMÉLIE – THE MUSICAL. A captivating, critically acclaimed musical from London’s West End based on the beloved French film Amélie. We encourage actors and actor/musicians of all racial/ethnic backgrounds to audition. Diversity will be a priority in the casting of the company. Local Atlanta actors are encouraged to audition.

SYNOPSIS: Amélie is a shy and imaginative young woman living in Paris. With a heart as big as her city, Amélie secretly improvises small but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy to those around her.  But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Join Amélie as she discovers the extraordinary in the ordinary, touching hearts and inspiring dreams along the way in this enchanting new musical.

Casting — General Information

  • Horizon accepts headshots, resumes and video links from actors who are located in Atlanta or who have Atlanta housing year round.
  • We appreciate link(s) to any video of your stage work you can provide – scenes or monologues.  We prefer 3/4 or full body shot video so that we can see you in a theatrical context rather than a film context.  You can also include a link to your reel, but any theatre video is better.  Also include a brief letter of interest that tells us something about yourself and what brings you to Atlanta.
  • We hold individual auditions for each show in our season which are publicized through AEA and Broadway World.
  • If you would like to be considered for a particular show, you may send your headshot, resume, and letter of interest, and we will do our best to call you in for that show.  But we have a small staff, so if you see a posting about auditions and you have not heard from us, submit your information as indicated on the posting.
  • Please note that Horizon Theatre Company does not offer local housing and therefore rarely uses out-of-town actors.
  • Horizon is a professional theatre company that hires both Equity and non-Equity performers on an SPT6 contract.
