Riley’s Farm

Two separate auditions will be held in the next two weeks at Riley’s Farm in Oak Glen. Both will be held at the farm’s location at 12261 Oak Glen Road.

The first audition is to identify dynamic actors and educators to join a talented cast of living historians to help bring realism to the Winter-Spring field trip season. We’ll be casting for people age 16 and older for the following tours: American Revolution, Civil War, Gold Rush, Colonial Farm Life, and Old Joe Homestead. An overall look consistent with the time periods we portray is preferred for the auditions. Typical shifts are 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Mondays through Fridays to coincide with school field trips.

Auditions for the Living History cast will be held Wednesday, Jan. 31 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Email Riley’s Farm for additional information at:
