Audition dates for actors, singers, stage managers, and other entertainment jobs will be held Feb. 2 and Feb. 16 at Kings Dominion Theatre. Applicants can submit an audition video online if they can't attend on those dates.

In order to qualify for any of the open positions, applicants must be at least 15 years old and apply online.

Positions are open for the 2013 season, and the park opens March. 29.
