Esther's Follies on Sixth Street, Austin's #1 comedy and magic theater since 1977 is holding auditions for a Female Performer and Magician Assistant with comedy, musical, stage and light dance experience. Comedy sketch/song writers are also needed.

The Esther's Follies show combines short comedy sketches, monologues, musical production numbers and magic illusions. Political satire comes up often in the show, as we parody the news and cultural events. Reviews have compared us to "Saturday Night Live with the Ed Sullivan Show thrown in", with a fast paced contemporary vaudeville feel.

Esther's Follies show rehearsals are in the daytime on Tuesdays and Wednesdays every week, from noon to 3 pm, and before shows on Thursdays and Fridays from 5-6 pm. You will need to attend rehearsals to be in the shows.

Auditions will be held starting August 23 & 24, or upon appointment. Please send resume and reels to, and to You can also call our office at 512-320-0198 between 10 am - 3 pm M-F to ask any questions or set up the audition time for you.

Actresses should prepare a 5 minute audition piece to show comedy creativity, characters you can play, and be prepared to be taught a dance routine to show your flexibility. Actresses should also prepare a short song, not necessarily comedic, sung acapella or with your own tape on our sound system, to show us your vocal capabilities.

All actors are paid, depending on experience, to start at least $700 per week. Showtimes are Thursdays at 7, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 & 9.
