Singers And Actors

Dollywood, winner of TEN CONSECUTIVE Golden Ticket Awards for Best Shows, needs world-class performers! Learn more about our upcoming open call auditions, and perhaps you can join our award-winning entertainment team at Dolly Parton's Dollywood in the Great Smoky Mountains. Please check the Schedule page for audition dates and times.


We are looking for versatile singers who are proficient in musical theater, 50’s-60’s rock and pop vocals. Strong movement skills are a plus. We are casting strong male and female country music singers who can perform contemporary, as well as classic, country music. We are also casting expressive actors who are skilled at improvisation, have a strong presence, can project and are able to sing and move well.


  • Prepare two songs in the style(s) you do best. A verse and chorus of each song is sufficient.
  • Include ballads and up-tempo songs.
  • Bring sheet music in your key or CD accompaniment. Please make sure that your sheet music is clearly marked for the accompanist.
  • An accompanist and CD player will be provided.
  • Please do not bring accompaniment tracks on iPods, iPads or any other digital media players.
  • You may accompany yourself on acoustic guitar or on Dollywood's keyboard.
  • Bring a current head shot and resume if you have one.
  • Must be at least 17 years old.

Some performers may be called back later in the day for an additional movement and vocal audition. If you do not receive a callback, your audition is concluded.

Please be prepared to stay for the full day or the next day if you receive a callback.
