About the Show

Hex Academy will originate from the stage of The Hive Collaborative in Provo, Utah in front of a live studio audience. Hex Academy Season 1 will run for four Friday and/or Saturday evenings, with exact dates to be announced once public health concerns are more fully resolved.

As you know, brave champions of Throssia have long had to endure a series of challenges that sometimes stretched them to their very core. These challenges manifested themselves in the Hex as what may appear to the untrained observer to be little more than games, but were in fact at times to-the-death challenges on which hung the fate of all the citizens of Throssia.

Thus far, these brave champions have had to face these challenges with no idea whatsoever what was coming their way. But as the stakes continue to rise higher with each new encounter our champions face, we believe we must likewise escalate our efforts to prepare for whatever Throssian enemies throw at us.

As such, the five clans of Throssia have joined together to create the Hex Academy. Within the walls of the castle of Riverford, the clans have built an exact replica of the Hex tavern, down to the smallest of details.

Teams of researchers have done their best to recreate the challenges our champions have previously faced, sometimes precisely as they were originally presented, and sometimes with new wrinkles based on Professor Lorilla Scheppen’s scientific projections about the potential evolutionary trajectory of future Hex challenges.

Now we are looking for up to 32 brave citizens of Throssia willing to put themselves to the test in the first semester of Hex Academy taking place on four consecutive Fridays and/or Saturdays to see who can prove themselves in the heat of battle. You may apply as an individual or as a team of four champions.

These challenges will be streamed live to all of Throssia with boon voting to help determine who will advance and to provide compensation for members of the Hex Academy. One team will even win the coveted Hex Challenge Cup with a bonus cash prize. You might even win a spot in Enter the Hex Season 4, coming soon to HiveChannel5.com.

Roles & Schedule

Roles

We are seeking a champion for each clan and 3-4 additional clan members who will play together as a team. Feel free to audition for a champion position, and if you are cast, you may recruit friends you think might be a good fit for Hex Academy, or you may draw from those champions who have submitted their applications to be part of Hex Academy.

Schedule

Hex Academy will originate from the stage of The Hive Collaborative in Provo, Utah in front of a live studio audience. Hex Academy Season 1 will run for four Friday and/or Saturday evenings, to be scheduled once public health concerns are more fully resolved. There will be a modest stipend for participation in Hex Academy.

Audition Dates

Auditions will be scheduled once public health concerns are more fully resolved.

What to Prepare

For your audition, we ask that you come prepared to share with us what your favorite Hex Challenge from the first three seasons of Enter the Hex was and why. We may ask you to repeat your response with instructions for delivering it as a character. We’re mostly interested in how well you embody the character you’re portraying.

Location

Auditions and performances will be held at The Hive Collaborative, Utah’s new theater. We’re located at 591 S. 300 West, Provo, UT 84601.

Schedule Your Audition

Apply for Hex Academy

For team captains and players
  • We invite you submit a link to a one-minute, unlisted YouTube video of you (and up to three friends, if submitting an application as a team) sharing with us one of your favorite Hex Challenges from past seasons in your character. It doesn't have to be elaborate. (If you'd prefer, you may arrange to schedule an in-person audition. See "Audition Scheduling Request" below.
  • We'll be scheduling auditions once public health concerns are more fully resolved. But in the meantime, indicate here if you'd prefer to come audition in person (as opposed to a video submission) and tell us in general what works best for your schedule (e.g., weekdays, weeknights, Saturdays, etc.). We'll reach out to you to propose a date/time based on your request.)
  • Please share with us a one-paragraph summary of your experience in acting for theatre or film. Or tell us about your TTRPG experience. No experience? No worries. Just tell us a little bit about yourself.
  • Anything else you'd care to share with us?
  • Please upload a headshot (need not be professional) and resume, if you have one. Allowable extensions are pdf, jpg, png, gif (one file only, no more than 1 MB in size).
