How does a tour work?

Touring actors and puppeteers are full-time salaried positions. Tours vary from two months to a year with the possibility of extensions. Actors travel in teams of two in a combination of run-out and overnight touring in large cargo vans.  Lodging and fuel expenses while touring are paid for by Madcap. Housing in the Cincinnati area is the responsibility of actor.  All touring actors must have a valid driver’s license and will receive a background check.

Do I need lots of puppetry experience?

Puppetry experience is desirable, but if you’ve never worked with puppets before we’ll train you!

What if I’m Not Able to Tour?

If you are a Cincinnati-based actor, contact Madcap for opportunities to perform in our shows at the Cincinnati Zoo and the Linton Chamber Music Series, among others.
