FEMALE, PLAYING AGE 16 (must be 17 or older to apply), From Devon/Cornwall or with strong ties/base in the area

Available for filming: 3rd July - 5th November 2023

Filming: Devon/Cornwall area

ROLE - ZOË: This is an exciting new recurring role which will appear across the series. Zoë is headstrong, honest, and direct (sometimes a bit too direct!) and is not afraid to speak up when she doesn’t agree. She is at the age where she is adjusting to all the changes that come with being a teenager. Her reluctance to people please means she's not one of the popular kids at school, but she's got a small group of friends with similar interests. Devon Accent.

Please send your FULL NAME, CONTACT DETAILS, WHERE YOU ARE BASED, RECENT PHOTO, AGE AND SHORT INTRO TO: info@sachagreencasting.com with the subject line: ‘BEYOND PARADISE: ZOE’.

We would encourage applicants aged 17 to inform a parent or guardian before applying.

SHORT FILM CASTING | Gracie’s Sonata

‘Gracie’s Sonata’ follows the inner monologue of Jane, and is an exploration of the innocence (and naivety) of being young and pregnant. Inspired by the current issues surrounding abortion laws, this short film is a quiet commentary on how unwanted pregnancies affect the youth and highlights just how complex it is for adults to bring a child into this world, let alone a young girl. 

JANE (must be 18+, looks younger) - any ethnicity, portrayed as female - a young girl who has just found out that she is pregnant. She is thoughtful and quiet. Outwardly, she appears to be quite calm and composed, but on the inside, she is a chronic overthinker. 

BILLY (must be 18+, looks younger) - any ethnicity, portrayed as male  - a young boy who does not know that his girlfriend, Jane, is pregnant. He is charismatic in a goofy way and loves to talk about everything and anything - his mind is always on the move. 

Applicants must be 18 or over the age of 18 and be based in London, as we will be shooting in London.

The role is unpaid.

Shooting will take place around mid-late May, so applicants must be available around this time. Exact shooting dates are to be confirmed. 

If interested, please email jennifer.jade.williams@alumni.york.ac.uk with your headshot/a recent photo, an acting resume/a brief paragraph outlining your acting experience, and a short introduction about yourself. Feel free to send over a showreel/Spotlight link, but this is not at all necessary. Please do not worry if you don’t have extensive experience, we would just like to know a bit about you!

Submission deadline is Friday 5th of May.

UAL MA FILM CASTING: The Sweetness of Garlic

The Sweetness of Garlic (or How I Stopped Lying and Learnt to Love My Job), a UAL MA graduate film directed by Ray Sims. 

Isa’s having a bad shift. The restaurant is packed, there’s new graffiti in the bathroom, and her best friend Earn has just told her he’s leaving to work at the rival bar next door. Customers start getting weird, the chefs couldn’t care less, and the strange messages in the bathroom seem to be telling Isa that the only way out is up.

ISA – 23, female, any ethnicity – Waitress. Scruffy, permanently hungover, Isa hates her job but just doesn’t know how to quit. Literally the messiest person alive, survives off staff meals and leftover glasses of wine. Best friends with Earn but also kind of a bad influence. 

EARN – 22, male, Black / mixed race – Kitchen porter. Cool as a cucumber, always listening to music, highly capable of ignoring the restaurant hubbub and focussing on his faithful dishwasher. Looking forward to his new job at the rooftop bar next door and finally earning London Living Wage.

The role is unpaid, all applicants must be at least 18+, and be based in London. We’ll be filming from the 14th-22nd of June, and any applicants for ISA and EARN must be available for the entire shooting period as these are the lead roles.

SKIVE Short Film | UWE Bristol

Skive is a coming-of-age social realism film based in a run-down South West town. Courtney and Nathan are both skiving from school on the same afternoon for different reasons. On the cusp of adulthood, they’re forced to grow up too quickly. When their worlds crash together, they get the chance to escape their realities and be young again. 

The film addresses important topical issues such as the cost-of living crisis and sexual harassment, told through the eyes of young people.

Despite the heaviness that forms the backdrop of the characters’ lives, this film is a heart-warming take on the social realism genre. In an era of ‘Us VS Them’ mentality, this film will provide a nuanced take on serious issues - one that provides a glimpse of hope. Above all, this is a story of friendship and connection.

*Paid Opportunity* Rates TBC

Filming will take place in Bristol and Plymouth in late March and early April. Dates: Travel: 31st March 2023; Filming: 1st-5th April 2023, TBC.

All travel, food and accommodation will be provided.

Female, Playing Age: 16, Any Ethnicity.

Courtney presents herself as a defiant and alternative girl. She feels like an outsider to the run-down, almost apocalyptic town she inhabits. Despite a tough exterior, she feels vulnerable to the exploitation she faces on a near daily basis.

NATHAN (Lead Role)

Male, Playing Age: 16, Any Ethnicity.

On the surface, Nathan is your typical ‘British teenage lad’, however, his warmth and sensitivity subvert his stereotype. Nathan is motivated by his responsibility for his disabled mother.

Female, Playing Age: 35 – 60. Any Ethnicity.

HEAD TEACHER (Supporting Role – Speaking)

Male, Playing Age: 30 – 65. Any Ethnicity.

JOBLESS - BBC/I-PLAYER COMEDY SHORT | SALLY BROOME 

Two 16 year olds to play twins KENNY & TAI (do not have to be actual twins but please note the family for this are BRITISH NIGERIAN

Must be available for ALL dates below

DEADLINE: Email kirsty.j.curtis@gmail.com by end of the day 3rd February 2023

 

Kenny Adenuga - Lead Role (Male, 16 years)

OVER LICENSING BUT TO PLAY 16 YEARS - BRITISH NIGERIAN

Height: Any height

Appearance: Black-African

Contract type: Equity - BBC

Contract info: Eng fee for short £800, prod days, buyout etc as standard

Kenny is always ready with a joke, and has a cheeky charm that means people quickly warm to him.
Kenny dreams big. He knows he does not want to settle for a boring minimum wage Saturday job.
The problem is, he doesn’t know quite what he does want to do. Other than being rich and famous.
He often describes himself as an aspiring YouTuber but will also turn his hand to anything – he’s the master of the side hustle, in theory at least – his idol would be KSI.
He is absolutely convinced that things will turn out his way in the end. Which is why he refuses to take a ‘proper’ job - it’s a trap. He takes on some much more ‘wide-ranging’ (read: absolutely bonkers) jobs while he comes up with yet another scheme for fame and fortune. He isn’t sure exactly how he’s going to get where he wants to be in life, but he is full of ideas, and will implement them at 100 miles an hour, his mind utterly untroubled by thoughts of past failures. He has an almost pathological aptitude for embarking on things without having thought them through in the slightest, which usually lands him in hot water, and quite often Tai has to come to the rescue (when she’s feeling amenable, that is). In general, he’s a lot more reliant on his sister and parents than he would care to admit.
Kenny knows for certain what he doesn’t want to do. And what he has no desire to do, whatsoever, is give up his dreams and get trapped in a hair shop in Milton Keynes with a load of Aunties. He’s dying to move to London one day where ‘all the magic happens’. It’s only 50 miles, and a £10 train ticket away but it’s totally beyond his reach right now.

Neutral Accent

London or Milton Keynes Based

Cannot be allergic or scared of dogs

 

Tai Adenuga - Lead Role (Female, 16 years)

OVER LICENSING BUT TO PLAY 16 YEARS - BRITISH NIGERIAN

Height: Any height

Appearance: Black-African

Contract type: Equity - BBC

Contract info: Eng fee for short £800, prod days, buyout etc as standard
Kenny’s twin sister and antagonist. She’s wise beyond her years, sarcastic, and has a dark sense of humour, as well as frankly mind-blowing organisational skills. She is also a real A-type personality, to a level that is quite intense, and has know-it-all tendencies which can sometimes be her downfall.
She’s surprisingly easy to bait for a smart person, and often all Kenny has to do is lord it over her a little, or tease her about having more friends than she does, and she will be so determined to come out on top that she will often get herself stuck in situations alongside him. The good thing is, more often than not she IS right, so he’s very lucky to have her around as she gets him out of a lot of bother. And, secretly, she loves it, as it gives her a bit of an opportunity to show her smarts.
Tai is not one of life’s losers, she’s keen to get a job, and can turn her hand to anything. It’s just that she has never actually made it past probation at a single job yet, as her tendency to make everything and everyone around her as efficient as possible can be a little annoying. And she doesn’t get time to lazy around the house licking her wounds, as Bunmi won’t stand for this for a second.
Their Relationship,Like any good sibling relationship, it’s complicated. And that goes double for twins. Sure, they are bonded by blood, and are there for each other when the chips are down, but there is also a very healthy amount of sibling rivalry. (Actually, maybe a bit more than is healthy). Sure, Tai will often come to Kenny’s rescue, but the sibling ecosystem is a delicate one – all it takes is one minor bit of blackmail, or a poorly-timed prank, or, heaven forbid, for Kenny to be actually winning for once, and all of a sudden the competitiveness is VERY real. Their hare and the tortoise approach also often means they are at loggerheads

Year 13 Collaboration Project | LSA

SEEKING TWO FEMALE-IDENTIFYING ACTORS, EARLY 20'S; A MALE-IDENTIFYING ACTOR, EARLY 20'S; A FEMALE OR MALE IDENTIFYING ACTOR, 50'S+

Female-identifying actor to play three parts (in three different scripts): Tallulah, Mary and Margie. All three women are American - from the midwest and are all strong characters who get caught up in the drama for different reasons. 

TALLULAH, finds herself transported back in time from the modern day to a 1940's run-down travelling carnival, not phased; she throws herself into the 'delusion' and makes a relationship with a young man of a similar age. 

MARY is the much younger wife of the bullying owner of a 1940's run-down travelling carnival, she is more dreamy in nature and runs away with a young man who steals the owner's money. 

MARGIE is a young nurse who has found herself in a run-down travelling carnival of the 1940's. She dreams of running away and finding something better.

 

Male-identifying actor to play three different parts (in three different scripts): Jimmy, Diggory and Rodney. All three men are American - from the midwest, working in a run down 1940's travelling carnival. 

JIMMY is the idealistic roustabout who acts as time-travelling Tallulah's guide, he is in charge of the monkey act. 

DIGGORY is darker and has stolen money from the bullying carnival owner in order to run away with his younger wife. 

RODNEY is the young but world weary Carnie who falls for Margie.

 

Older actor, a ringmaster, fortune teller or older carnival character.

The OWNER/ RINGMASTER of the first script is full of engial bonhomie and amicably hustles new girl Tallulah into a job.

In the second script RAY is a much more sinister, more dominating figure, sure that the young diggory is stealing from him/her - it turns out they were right.

In the final script the FORTUNE TELLER tries to warn the female protagonist of the dangers they are in.

 

2nd Female-identifying actor is American - from the midwest, working in a run down 1940's travelling carnival. Not in the first script, they play Bones and Barb

BONES is a friend to Diggory, a young carnie who has been beaten down by the bullying owner. 

BARB is an altogether less friendly character who tries to plot a deadly accident.

 

Shoot Dates 

The Carnival - Monday 12th December: Tallulah, Jimmy, Ringmaster

Fire Ants - Thursday 10th January: Diggory, Bones, Mary, Ray

Award-winning theatre company, ThickSkin, returns to the stage with their hit-show, How Not To Drown - an action packed, highly visual production telling the painful yet uplifting true story of an eleven year-old unaccompanied asylum-seeker arriving in the UK. In 2002, in the turmoil after the end of the Kosovan War, Dritan is sent on the notoriously perilous journey across the Adriatic with a gang of people smugglers to a new life in Europe. He relies on his young wit and charm to make it to the UK. But the fight for survival continues as he clings to his identity and sense of self when he ends up in the British care system. How Not to Drown shares a story of endurance for a little kid who wasn’t safe or welcome anywhere in the world, performed by an ensemble cast starring Dritan Kastrati himself.

A ThickSkin and Traverse Theatre Company production, supported by Theatre Royal Stratford East. Commissioned by ThickSkin and Lawrence Batley Theatre.

Casting Call | Dangerous Liaisons S2 (Starz)

CECILE DE VOLANGES (FEMALE, 18–21 YEARS)

Turning 21yrs. This is a superb new leading character appearing across all the 8 episodes. Options will be required. This role was played by Uma Thurman in the 80s movie.

We need an outstandingly brilliant, witty and clever young leading actress with a capacity for danger under an innocent exterior. Convent-raised and fresh to Paris society, Cecile is one of the most beautiful and eligible young women in France. Cecile appears every bit the pious young ingenue but is beginning to feel as though she is living in a gilded cage - polished and protected, a diamond to be bartered by the men around her. She is desperate to experience life and love before she is locked into a loveless marriage and a brief taste of romance only fuels her appetite for more. She wears her innocence as an armour, beneath which lies an understanding of power and the desire for it. She knows how to manipulate those around her to carve out a secret life that she craves. When in the course of the story she is cruelly exploited and betrayed, Cecile will have her revenge - and those who underestimated her will pay a terrible price.

Some scenes of a sexual nature will be required for this character. For all scenes of a sexual nature, an intimacy co-ordinator will be engaged by production to provide a safe, secure and trustworthy environment for the cast based on now well-established protocols.

Playing age 18–21 years

Height Any height

Gender Female

Appearance Any appearance

BHANU: East Indian girl, 17-19 years old. Troublingly independent. She's at the age where her mother's wise precautions and stringent rules seem like exercises in sadism, or hyperbole, or both. Having moved from India to Pittsburgh on very short notice, she uses the opportunity to get out from her mother's thumb (which she feels is attached surgically to her neck) and her first celebration of independence is to get grindingly romantic with their inappropriate neighbour, Stu. Role involves moments of adolescent sexuality. Non-binary and transgender actors encouraged to submit. 

KAMAL: East Indian boy, 14-16 years old. Introverted and co-dependant, Kamal is an epic mama's boy. He has anxieties and phobias for which his mother gives him medication. He loves rules and thinks narcs are just heroes who tell the truth. In his own way, he has the harshest reaction to America. Tired of being misnamed 'Camel', he withdraws deeper and deeper into himself until he simply declines to speak or associate with anybody. Role involves moments of adolescent sexuality. Non-binary and transgender actors encouraged to submit. 

VINOD: East Indian boy, 11-13 years old. He's cute and optimistic but completely naive. He loves all things American but his way of dealing with school bullies comes from his adoration of Ghandi, so he tries pacifism (which doesn't always work). Non-binary and transgender actors encouraged to submit. 

*We are committed to diverse and inclusive casting. Everyone will be considered regardless of disability, race, age, colour, national origin, ethnic origin, gender identity, sexual identification, or any other basis prohibited by law.

Podcast Series by Jack Clearwater

A podcast series is in development in collaboration with RISE Collective on the theme of ‘Emerging Futures’ and they would love to platform your material as part of their work.

Do you have a poem / song / story / fable that speaks about the Earth and / or our Climate? Your piece should consider what it has meant to us, what it means to us now at this pivotal moment, or what it might mean to us in the future? 

There will be two episodes - one focussing on nature and climate in the city, the other in the country - and you're welcome to submit work that aligns with either / both of these spaces. 

In sharing your work with us you'll get the chance to have it woven into a brand new piece of audio fiction - the RISE Podcast is on its third series, with a super wide listener base, and this is a great opportunity to have your work heard!

They're particularly keen to platform unheard voices, so if you identify as LGBTQIA+, working class, disabled / neurodivergent, a member of the Global Majority, Jewish, Roma, or any other marginalised group please don’t hesitate to send your work over. 

To get involved send a recording / video of your work to —

CASTING OPPORTUNITY ARCOLA THEATRE - THE MINIATURISTS - ACTORS NEEDED 

Roles:

Rajiv - 25-30 - Male - South Asian -  a lovely, slightly timid man who is really enjoying the new relationship he finds himself in with Hannah and is forced to consider how far outside his boundaries he’s willing to go.

Alon - 25-30 - Male - Any Background - a depressed husband living his dog kink life while his wife Hannah pursues a polyamorous approach to relationships. 

Toothbrushes by Nathan Lucky Wood, for the Miniaturists at the Arcola Theatre on Sunday June 12th. The play is a slightly strange comedy about post-pandemic relationships and explores the challenges and humorous situations of ‘modern love’. The turnaround is very quick with a week to learn lines and stage the play with a couple of rehearsals taking place on the 8th, 9th or 10th! Unfortunately the opportunity is unpaid but it is a quick turn around (about a week), with only two rehearsals and a tech on the day so not a huge time commitment. The night usually brings in a few industry people and is a great opportunity to connect with upcoming directors, writers and actors. 


If you would like to get involved please email director sophia.fouladi@gmail.com with a HEADSHOT and a bit about your EXPERIENCE in acting. As well as your AVAILABILITY.

- Member of the Moped Gang. 
- Scrawny. Streetwise. Feral. Funny. Loyal.

Best friend to ASH (Stephen Odubola) since childhood, although there’s a growing resentment ever since Ash’s family got rehoused to a slightly ‘posher’ estate. The fact remains that they both live in shit holes compared to all the new build luxury flats that are springing up all over their neighbourhood due to gentrification. He resents that there’s all this money being pumped into his neighbourhood but he’s not seeing any of it. As far as he’s concerned this entitles him to go and get that money off the people who are moving into the area.

WW2 Film Casting | Two Male Actors Callout!

Based on a Lancaster Bomber plane in Brighton, East Sussex.

More information here: https://goodtimecharliefilm.wixsite.com/mysite

Pay: £50 per person, per day.

Production Schedule: two weeks.

Location: Brighton

Character Descriptions:

Barton, Mid upper gunner on Lancaster bomber:

Barton is the mid-upper gunner of the Lancaster bomber, stubborn and hellbound on getting revenge for his brother's death. He begins to fight with the other crew members. Hiding the severe onset of PTSD, lashing out, and becoming very defensive, his need to protect his best friend Tom reaches a climax, and when the crew leaves on a mission into the heart of Germany, he doubles down on his position, fearing he's being perceived as weak.

Ethnicity: White / Caucasian

 

Tom, Male, 21, Lead wireless operator:

Tom, 21, Tom is the wireless operator on the Lancaster bomber. Once easygoing, fun, and loyal, his character is tested as his attempts to manage his best friend's outbursts. As Barton's overprotective nature becomes too much, Tom finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Ethnicity: White / Caucasian

Project Overview

Set in and around a Bomber Command Airbase on the east coast of England in 1944, the members of C For Charlie, a seven-man bomber aircrew, prepare for a mission deep over the heart of Nazi Germany's industrial complex.

The expectation is that this will be another long, hard, deadly, and hopefully decisive raid as Bomber Command strives for air superiority during the build-up to the rumoured and impending invasion of France, eventually to be known as D-Day.

With the stakes already extremely high, when Barton - the overprotective and often unpredictable mid-upper gunner on this crew of unsung heroes - learns that the others want him out, chaos ensues as his inner demons are laid bare for all to see.

Submissions:

Attached are two sections of the script; please record as much or as little as you would like from these sections and send them back to us via transfer or upload them an unlisted YouTube video.

The crew will have a Frenchman, Australian, polish and Canadians also, we are looking to cast authentic actors for these roles.

PAID ROLE.

Character Breakdown:

ROBIN, Playing age: 14, Ethnicity: mixed raced.
ROBIN, who is about to turn 15, has a plain face with quirky features, and is no taller than 5’4. She's slim but not skinny and looks younger than she is. Her eyes are large but not bright, mature but still youthful. Robins is a very private person and always keeps her emotions and thoughts to herself, she doesn't mean to be so closed off, but it's her way of coping.
Despite being positive and friendly, she's a weird mix of compassion and anger. She wants to do right by the world but can't understand why nobody wants to do right by her. Recently her family situation has become a bit tricky, she often finds herself switching off her emotions which sometimes makes it hard for her to read negative feelings and this often ends up in small fallouts with her best mate Storm and her mum. But she always manages to overcome them. She's a problem solver and a very individual thinker, despite her loving being around Storm and her Nan, she doesn't mind being by herself and doing her own thing.
She is mature for her age and finds it easier talking to adults, as she knows they won't judge her like her peers do at school. She used to get bullied by some of her classmates, and because of this only has one real mate, Storm. She has a very vivid and colourful imagination and spends a lot of her time drawing, she especially loves drawing animals and nature portraits. 
She has a special connection with her local corner shop owner Bossman, he's a part of her family and she feels as though he's the only adult she can truly trust. As well as Bossman she has her Nan, although her Nan is non verbal, Robin can spend hours upon hours talking to her about anything and everything. She used to get frustrated that Nan couldn't answer back but she understood that this is how she is now, and only occasionally gets upset about it. However her relationship with her Mum is a bit tricky, one day they get on and the next they're at each other's throats. But Robin feels that more and more she has to be the adult in this relationship.
When Robin isn't at home she puts on a happy face and tries to remain positive. When she's not at home helping with her Nan or cleaning up empty bottles, she’ll be outside the corner shop eating sweets and laughing with Storm. She loves to laugh and have fun at the end of a school day, as this is her favourite way to let go and be a normal teenager with her best mate.
Robin has realised that her life as it is isn't what she wants. She misses her dad every day. She doesn't know how to make things better, which is why she made the decision to come up with her own version of a To Do List, to find the answer to her life. She's taken her time to come up with each point on her list, she wants each one to have a special meaning to her, but she's struggling to come up with the fifth and final point. She knows where her end point is, but saying it out loud is scary. This list is something that she knows she wants to complete before she takes flight. 
Life has dealt her a very tricky hand. And she feels that the only way out for her is to be as free as a bird. 

Deadline: ASAP

We’re looking for artists, whether they’re just starting out or been in the game for years, if you’ve got something you want to develop, share or just throw at a wall and see what sticks, then we think this might be the spot for you.

"Its a dud is the creative child of Hollie Olivia (she/her) and Taraash Mehrotra (he/him). Both actors who graduated from Mountview just before the pandemic hit in 2019, wanted to create their own work but were also eager to find safe spaces to amplify local voices from the community especially after seeing how the pandemic had starved the industry both financially and emotionally. In an industry that a lot of the time demands perfection and commitment but easily overlooks artists' inclusion and welfare, its a dud is a nod to the joyous imperfection of creating and bringing marginalised voices to light. It's not perfect, its a dud."

JACK (MALE, 25–29 YEARS)
Mid-late 20’s. Black British, bisexual, working-class Londoner. Has a caustic, acerbic wit and more bravado than sense. A bit of a lost soul, he is cynical, irreverent, perhaps even amoral. He gets by on charm more than brawn and never loses his ability to face dangerous situations with a snarky one-liner. Self-destructive by nature, he likes his drink, he likes his drugs, he likes to party. Jack was raised in foster care, a dislocated upbringing that keeps him at arm’s-length from most people. He keeps a close circle of friends, but his romances are no-strings. He is afraid of emotions, because the only ones he knows are the ones that hurt him. Haunted by a past trauma he only dimly remembers, Jack never stands still long enough to confront it – until it finally confronts him. LEAD. MULTI-SEASON. OPTIONS REQUIRED.

14 - 16 Year Old Casting for Feature Film 'Me, You'

We are currently working on a feature film called 'Me, You', a coming of age story which recalls a summer on an idyllic Italian island off the coast of Naples in the 1950’s, where 16 year old Marco spends his days with Nicola, a local fisherman.  It is based on the novel "Tu, Mio", written by Erri de Luca and is to be directed by Bille August. 
 
"Me, You" will shoot in Ischia for 6 weeks from September.  We will provide an exclusive, full-time tutor who will be approved by the school prior to shooting, as well as a chaperone. There will be time put aside for lessons and school work.
 
Jasmine Trinca is playing the role of Isabella, Marco Edward's wife, and Alessandro Gassman is playing Nichola. 
 
We are looking for our lead role, 16 year old Marco: a charismatic, plucky, intuitive, emotionally aware adolescent who despite desperately trying to prove his maturity amongst his older peers, is a sensitive and innocent teen.
 
Marco is a bright boy who has an obsessive curiosity about what happened in the war, not least because he was an evacuee and sent to a boarding school for 5 years. It's also because of this that Marco has suffered a lonely past, and as the only son of Edward and Isabella, harbours some abandonment and resentment issues towards them for only visiting him twice during that time as they continued to work in London.
 
Marco's father is English and his mother is Italian, and since he has been brought up in the UK, he sometimes struggles with the culture clash and customary Italian ways.
 
He isn't afraid of hard work, Marco spends most of his days on a boat with Nichola and is always keen to help the women around the house with chores (much to their surprise since this is not the Italian way), but above all, Marco is determined to spend time with Caia. After their very first meet, he is immediately drawn to Caia and soon experiences an innocent holiday infatuation with her. His affections put him in tricky situations and not only cause tension with his older cousin, Daniele, but also lead him to making rash decisions.
 
Submissions MUST BE 14 - 16, who can portray both the passion and vulnerability of Marco in equal measure. We are not looking for experience but we need talented actors who can carry a film.
 
If you think you fit the criteria, please self-tape the following Marco scene 37 (found on pages 47, 48 & 49) .
 
Here is a document on how to self-tape, along with the full script.
 
Once you have self-taped, you can send it back to the following email: MeYou.Marco@gmail.com using video sharing platforms such as Vimeo or We Transfer. They should include your full name and DOB with your tapes.
 
ANYONE OVER THE AGE OF 16 WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

BBC Family Prom 2021 // Alice Purser Casting

The BBC Proms are back! It brings me great joy to be casting again for this special event, that in previous years has featured exciting talent such as Paapa Essiedu, Rory Kinnear, Ivanno Jeremiah and Josie Lawrence. The Royal Albert Hall is a truly magical place to perform and the Proms team work miracles to turn over the space and produce daily concerts across the season.This year's Family Prom has plenty of festival spirit with a Carnival theme and features musical super-stars the Kanneh-Mason family, Lemn Sissay OBE and Michael Morpurgo OBE. In addition to 2 live performances, the concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, with a deferred broadcast on BBC Four - part of it will also have transmission on BBC 2.

Role Info:

We are seeking a leading young Global Majority actress, who will be comfortable holding court at The Royal Albert Hall which has a capacity of almost 6000! The role is written as mid-teens, but we require a slightly older actress (over licensing) who can play down in age and really engage a young audience. Mancunian accent would be a bonus, but we are open in this regard for the right performer. London base preferable – however we can consider candidates who live elsewhere. Looking for someone with solid theatre experience and who has good timing and a sense of musicality. Spoken word experience would be a plus, as much of the text is Poetry by, and delivered with, Lemn Sissay and Michael Morpurgo. Although a formal dance background isn't necessary, the actress will need to be comfortable moving around a lot - the character has loads of energy, confidence and plenty of charisma. There is quite a bit of stream-of-consciousness text as well as poetry - so this will require learning dialogue quickly in our short timeframe!

Dates: Rehearsal in London 25th-28th August. Matinee and Evening performance at The Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 29th August. 

How to Apply: Please send your CV and headshots to assistant@alicepurser.com

 

Deadline:12th August (applications after this time will be considered, but no later than 16th August)

At The Feet Of Jesus - A new play by Adanna Oji Directed by the award winning Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE

“…This is my land. The very clay you walk on runs through my veins…”

Rio de Janeiro 2014. The country is electric with excitement; it’s the World Cup! In the streets there are celebrations, political protests and violence. After the post football riots Ligia Cardoso, the long suffering wife of the ever optimistic Cezário Cardoso, tells her husband that enough is enough; they have to move to a safer neighbourhood. But Cezário has other ideas. This is the favela his forefathers have lived in for over a century. This is where people respect him and where he’s able to work behind his beloved bar. He can’t leave all that behind. So Cezário hatches a plan. With the help of Natanael; a notorious and dangerous gang leader, they decide to burn down Cezário’s bar and collect on the insurance. With that money, Cezário has dreams of building a bigger, better; more spectacular bar with tourists a-plenty. It’ll be so successful Ligia won’t ever wish to leave this favela again. But when the arson plot goes awry causing a near fatality and secret indiscretions come to light, Cezário’s world begins to unravel; forcing him to take the most drastic actions in order to put it all back together again.

Casting Breakdown 

CEZÁRIO CARDOSO: (Optimistic, proud, disorganised and irresponsible). The patriarch of the family and the descendant of a much respected lineage who’ve lived in the local favela for generations. Cezário is ever the optimistic; an upbeat soul who sees the world through ‘glass half full’ spectacles.  He loves his family and especially loves his bar where he can connect with the community he holds so dear. Cezário, however is not the greatest of business men. Riding on the coattails of his highly esteemed descendants, he relies on their reputation to bolster the success of his bar; his optimism often blinding him to the signs that all is not well. Though the favela is becoming a dangerous place, his heritage affords him a sort of status. The thought of moving elsewhere, even for the safety of his family, brings fear and resistance. When a secret threatens to destroy everything; Cezário is compelled to go to the extreme in order to set things right.

Male actor: (Black) Can play mid-late 40’s/early 50’s. Energised and fit.

LIGIA CARDOSO: (Protective, deeply spiritual, resigned and pragmatic). The matriarch of the family. Ligia is a former Brazilian Carnival dancer and is a woman who still takes great care in her appearance. A once spontaneous and vibrant woman; Ligia’s married existence, with her husband, leaves her feeling as though her wings have been clipped. She is the backbone of the family and the reason why they’ve managed to keep afloat, even though their bar is almost falling apart. But the constant grind; chasing up on the bills, trying to keep her daughter safe from the increasing neighbourhood violence all whilst her husband drifts around in blissful ignorance, is beginning to weigh down on her. It’s time for change and Ligia is prepared to achieve this at any cost.

Female actor: (Black) Can play mid- late 40’s/early 50’s. Astute and elegant.

AZRAEL CARDOSO(Studious, political, outspoken and sensitive). Azrael is the only child of Cezário and Ligia Cardorso. Having two working parents has afforded her the opportunity for a decent education; something of which she’s grasped with both hands. Deeply passionate about the state of Brazil, Azrael can often get swept up in the cloud of her own political discourse; unable to see other points of view. She uses her intellect to hide her insecurities and secretly envies her best friend, Lucianna’s, ability to be so free with her sexuality. A big reveal forces Azrael to grow up fast and re-think her core values.

Female actor: (Black) Can play 16. Thoughtful and spirited.

LUCIANNA(Sensual, purposeful, ambitious and generous). Lucianna is a childhood friend of Azrael and the half-sister of the local gang leader, Natanael. A vivacious, free spirit who embraces her sexuality and uses it to get what she wants. Though only two years older that Azrael, Lucianna seems far more mature for her age. Lucianna dreams of leaving the confines of her family’s oppressive household and travelling the world, but with her intimidating brother watching her every move, she resorts to finding questionable ways in which to achieve her goal. 

Female actor: (Black) Can play 18. Engaging and intelligent. 

NATANAEL: (Charming, dangerous, unpredictable and moralistic). Natanael is a charismatic, shrewd business man and leader. He rules the cluster of gangs that, essentially, rule the favela. He and his ‘soldiers’ have a strict code of conduct which maintains social cohesion. Behind his approachable demeanour there is a line not to be crossed-the few that dared to, never lived to tell the tale. He keeps a strict eye on his younger sibling, believing that this is the only way she’ll grow into a woman with high values and integrity.Natanael is wonderfully complex and had his life not taken this path he could have easily slipped into the realm of politics. Resigned to his fate; he embraces the life and fiercely protects it.

Male actor: (all demographics including biracial heritage/non-Black) Can play early 20’s. Quick-witted and grounded.

BOLLYWOOD AND VINE - THE ORIGINAL B-MOVIE MUSICAL

Casting for an Indian actor who identifies as male, is an extremely strong singer and who is/looks 19 years old for the role of BHUVAN. 

“Delilah Leigh a forgotten B-movie scream queen and her son Devin compete for the attentions of a handsome filmmaker from India – Delilah for her last shot at stardom Devin for his first shot at love.”

Character Description: BHUVAN: Identifies as Male, plays 19. Bhuvan is a starstruck movie buff who is newly arrived in Los Angeles from Mumbai with all the naïveté and inexperience that comes with being a sheltered 19 year-old. In short, Bhuvan hasn’t quite come of age. Seemingly on a search for his idol - former Hollywood actress Delilah Leigh - it soon becomes apparent that Bhuvan is searching for his authentic self. By the close of the film, Bhuvan falls in love with Delilah’s son and realizes his dream of becoming a screenwriter and director.  Bhuvan is bilingual with Bengali as his first language, English as his second. He is soft-spoken and what used to be called “mild-mannered.” A Clark Kent, so to speak. But when Bhuvan sings and dances, he becomes a Superman; as explosive, electric, and charismatic a singer/dancer as India’s Tiger Shroff or America’s Justin Timberlake in their early days. The actor playing Bhuvan should be someone who could easily front a rock band or star in his own YouTube Music Video. He must be adept in all styles of modern dance from Bollywood - to rock & roll - to hip hop - to Broadway. Bari-tenor. LEAD 

Director: Sanjay Sharma

Producers: Shantketan Films, Sunburst Lane, and Glist Entertainment/Vegas Film Ventures

Casting for 11 year old

DESTINY - SERIES REGULAR (Female, 11–11 years)

Little Darlings is written by the super talented Nathan Bryon (Bloods)and Jonny Wright from the book by Jacqueline Wilson.

LITTLE DARLINGS
Danny Kilman is still a big star with an adoring fan base. But since the death of his wife he’s lost some of his drive and enthusiasm. He’s a bit jaded.
His kids keep him happy, though. Ace (6), who’s tiger-obsessed, Sweetie (8), self-obsessed and a diva-in-the-making and Sunset (11), the introverted, over-thinker of the family. Home is a fabulous pop star mansion in London, which they share with manager Mike (maybe not ideal manager material, but he’s devoted, puppy dog-like to Danny).

Kate and Destiny’s arrival on the scene delivers an injection of drama, passion and chaos into Danny’s life. Fiery, opinionated Kate is the woman he had a brief relationship with 12 years ago. Destiny (11, full of life, passionate like her mum) is the daughter he didn’t realise existed until now. Home for Kate and Destiny is a maisonette on a council estate in Manchester - light years away from the luxurious Kilman mansion.
As Kate and Danny reconnect we can immediately see the sparks fly and the potential for romance. It’s just that both are in denial, both comically unable to acknowledge the attraction. So, it’s always one step forwards, two back. As a single mum who’s had to work like crazy to bring up her daughter, Kate’s chippie about Danny’s wealth and status. Sensitive, romantic Danny is easily bruised and withdraws. Each time they look like they might finally get it together a misunderstanding or events conspire to muddy the waters and pull them apart again.

We need a seriously strong and talented actress for this wonderful role MUST BE AN AMAZING SINGER. 

She is gobby and headstrong, feisty like her Mum.

Tell me anything - ITV - Beatrice Ray Casting.

We’re looking for some brilliant young actors to play an array of great lead roles in TELL ME EVERYTHING for ITV. 

Production information and overview found here.

CHARACTER BRIEFS

NIF – African. Is wild, loud, and opinionated. But her tough exterior masks huge insecurities about living up to the perfect memory of her dead brother. She doesn’t really know who she is yet, but she’s determined to be someone. Selftape scene available here.

JONNY – Any Ethnicity. is fun, but never too in-your-face. He’s intelligent but slightly neurotic. He plays the part of a teenager, but worries that he’s just going through the motions. He can’t seem to express how he feels. There’s something missing inside him, something that stops him connecting properly with anyone. He suffers from bouts of depression and anxiety. Jonny is lost. Can he find himself before it’s too late?   Selftape scene available here.

MEI – East Asian. is quirky and perky, with her own odd-ball style. Very few people are on her wavelength, or even the same plain of reality. She doesn’t give a shit what anyone else thinks of her. But her dark humour and matter-of-fact nihilism betray something deeper, darker and more dangerous. And it's this mysterious edge that makes her so exciting. Selftape scene available here.

In the attached document is the details of the project as well as character blogs for the roles we’re looking at. I have specified the ethnicity on the character blogs, but for now don’t worry too much about that as there are plenty of other roles coming up in the series so happy for your guys to tape if they feel particularly suited to a role.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF-TAPING

Shot: Please film landscape from the chest up, doesn’t need to be a fancy camera, you can just shoot on a phone.

Takes: Please include a brief introduction to camera, your name and age. Please send just one take of the scene you are reading. You should look just past the camera, not directly down the lens. Ask someone to read the other lines in with you, doesn’t need to be good - it can be a friend or parent, if they’re rubbish - don’t worry, we’re watching you!

Labelling: Please label as the following: ROLE NAME Your Name. e.g. JOHNNY Joe Bloggs

Please can you ask the actors submitting tapes to send the tape directly to me via WeTransfer or Dropbox - NOT as an attachment: beatrice@beatriceray.co.uk

This is a call-out for a 4-week production workshop, exploring Bertolt Brecht’s 1929 BREADSHOP, a political pantomime about everything that's dysfunctional about capitalism — its precarity, injustice, and the ridiculously difficult struggle for a loaf of bread and a roof over one's head. The workshop involves a 3-week rehearsal period with 5 public performances in week 4 at a local bakery in Hackney, London E8. This will be an opportunity for young actors and theatre-makers to explore Brechtian approaches to political theatre-making, epic dramaturgy in action, slapstick comedy, and site-specific performance.

The role: Hitler Youth Singers

To Be In the Gallery (Etre Dans La Galere) - Casting

The short film, To Be In the Gallery (Etre Dans La Galere), is a satirical thriller about three teenagers - Leo, Marielle and Jules - on the cusp of adulthood who encounter a horrific act of police brutality and the troubles that ensue during that particular day.  The film deals with themes of police brutality, power struggles, and injustice and the envisioned style has been inspired by the French New Wave and the likes of Godard and Truffaut.  It uses these common traits of the movement through naturalistic dialogue and comedic and absurd moments.  The fight for power is definitely highlighted in the piece, not only the power of the police, but the power within the trio themselves.

 

We are looking for a female actor to play Marielle. 

The role of Marielle is really what holds the piece together and is somewhat the only level-headed and rational character in the film.  However, Marielle has secrets of her own, and these secrets are woven into her social makeup.

 

The role is unpaid and we are looking for an actor that is looking for opportunities to work with young aspiring creatives to work on their craft and get some experience.  But, expenses will be paid for.

The actor must be based around or in London.

Members can put themselves forward by emailing me and attaching a headshot, a small bio about themselves and where they are based.  If we then think the actor is right for the role, we will get in touch and set up a time for a zoom call audition.

Please contact: sam.hundal@outlook.com

Please can you submit interest by the 4th of June 2021

Comedy Drama Series (+18s only)

A darkly moving comedy drama series from Clerkenwell (Misfits, End of The F***ing World). We’re looking for two cracking young actors to play the roles of DANNY and AARON. 

Boys of any ethnicity ages 18-21.

SYNOPSIS

Danny thinks his dad Steve was the funniest, kindest, wisest and bravest man in the whole wide world. After all, who else kept Danny safe; played him wonderful old records and showed him beautiful old films; created a beautiful world inside their loving home, just for the two of them? And who else kept Danny protected from all of the terrifying monsters that stalked the earth outside?

CHARACTER BRIEFS

DANNY - 18

Danny has grown up in a a very complicated bubble.  He's been locked in the house since he was a baby - only ever seeing glimpses of the sunshine.  His references are black and white movies and old records.  The only other person he's ever met is his dad.  Danny needs to be 'other' he has to be a lost soul and a threat all at the same time.  He's confused, he's frightened but he also wants revenge.  We don’t know what he’s capable of, he has focus and only comes across as odd because he has no current cultural references, and has not socialised - yet he has a confidence that would come from complete lack of interacting with the world around him. Enjoy the humour and wide eyed joy of this character. 

AARON - 18

Aaron is Danny's cousin.  He's an unhappy overweight teen -  He's incredibly unhappy with himself but covers that with a very thin layer of big talk and misogyny that everyone can see through.   When Danny comes to live with his fractured family we realise that Aaron is incredibly lonely.  A wall of social media and porn sites separates him from his feelings and forming proper relationships and he's desperate to be included.  Danny almost gives Aaron a purpose - something to push against and or pull with.  We start to see that actually he's an incredibly caring young man who just hasnt found his place yet. Needs to have some comedy about them, we need to like quite an (apparently) appalling human being here.  Aaron’s bravado and misogyny is a well oiled protection mechanism to hide his insecurities.

This opportunity is paid, has mentoring and the opportunity to develop their own piece as a 'Barrel Organ Young Company' built into it, and the deadline for this is Friday 9th October.

Exciting opportunity to help make history with English Heritage

  •  Do you want to help promote young people’s voices on a national project?
  • And add another amazing performance to your portfolio?

Shout Out Loud is an English Heritage youth engagement programme and we’re looking for young people to perform poetry written about London’s Cenotaph.

Through a series of workshops with spoken word artist Stephanie Ampofo, a group of young people from METRO Charity explored how we commemorate those who have died in conflict and what the Cenotaph means to us today. They created a series of poems which put their voices at the heart of storytelling and history.

We are looking for talented voice performers to help us amplify those voices for more to hear!

By recording your audio remotely, we’d like vibrant performances to help bring to life words written by some of the most marginalised young people. These recordings will be promoted across our social media channels for Remembrance Day.

If you’d love the opportunity to help make history please get in touch ASAP with Francesca – Youth Participation Officer for Shout Out Loud: francesca.taylor@english-heritage.org.uk

You can find out more about the Cenotaph project on our website - https://www.shoutoutloud.org.uk/project/the-cenotaph-project/

Holocaust Learning UK - Film casting

Holocaust Learning UK is a charity that educates teenagers about the Holocaust. It aims not only to teach the history but to help address the evils of religious and racial discrimination, in particular anti-semitism, today. Our film will help the charity in these aims. As well as  archive material and an interview with a real survivor of the Holocaust, verbatim testimony of other witnesses to the genocide will be spoken by a number of young actors.

Brief-

We are looking for actors between the ages of 14 and 17. Although they will be speaking the lines of Jewish teenagers during WW2, we want to recruit a cast that is ethnically very diverse. (The subtext is that it was just ordinary people, like the rest of us, who were murdered. Another point is that the Holocaust was motivated by racial hate. We want the audience to relate this to modern examples of discrimination, hate crime and genocide.)

Filming will take place on October 29th at a studio in central London under the social distancing protocols. You will be required for about half a day. We hope the experience of working with a director in a film studio will prove valuable and we will also send you clips that you can put on your showreel.  There will be a nominal fee of £50 plus £5 travelling expenses. 

Ideally we would like your submission to be a short video clip - phone footage is fine - of yourself reciting a piece to camera. Another clip of you talking about yourself would also be great. If you aren’t able to film yourself, a recent photo and resumé would still be worth submitting.

Please send your submissions to richard@tapestrypictures.com  . If you need any further information, please contact Suzanne Friend at suzanne@tapestrypictures.com . 

Deadline for submissions: Saturday 10th October.

Casting Call | Isabella Odoffin Casting (Blue Story) Feature Film


Casting Call | 'Britain's Got Chloe' Short Film by award-winning filmmaker 

Casting Director Hannah Williams would love for anyone with a Stoke or similar accent to get in touch - hannah@hannahmariewilliams.com - with their headshot, and anything they have they can show (reel, online profile, CV etc.) but no pressure if they don't already have. Just a picture, location, age will do! 

Please only submit if the below fits your casting.. 

ROLE: CHLOE - AGE 14 - Stoke On Trent accent

A girls girl but not particularly ‘girly’. Actually quite boisterous in her ways and totally not arsed about boys as love interests. In school she has a really close group of two other friends and her - the type that are constantly falling out but would fully stand up for each other if anyone ever crossed them. She could do really well at school, she’s got the potential to be really clever - if only she stopped talking in class. She’s learnt a lot of musical knowledge from her mum and Keith, loves a bit of Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush type vibes. She keeps her cool most of the time when it comes to the audition. 

Logline
Chloe and her family are on their way to the audition that could change their lives forever. "Chloe Gregory from Stoke” just won’t cut it any longer, Chloe can't wait to show the world her worth, they'll be eating out of the palm of her hand. Crammed into the back of her family's 9 seater feels like any ordinary day but today is different, the gravity of that hit her harder than she'd ever imagined. Will the world outside be all it's cracked up to be? Or is everything she'll ever need already bundled into this fart-smelling van?

Story
Chloe Gregory from Stoke has finally made it to the M56, a stretch of road she's only ever been on a few times when she and her siblings - Kyle, Rachel, and James - went to visit Nan that time she had a big purple foot. But that was AGES ago. And this time, they’re going South. Chloe's got a big audition today, it's a dream come true. It would probably be easier to count the number of Britain's Got Talent episodes the Gregory family have missed rather than the amount they’ve watched. But, today is different, Chloe won't just be watching from the crowd, she'll be up on stage under the bright lights, and everyone will be watching her. Her teacher thinks Chloe should knuckle down and “stop being such a chatterbox”, her mum thinks she’s “a right character”, but Chloe is a girl who knows herself, and she knows she’s got something special. 
Cramped between her 3 siblings, with her half brother, Sam, up front between his wife, Jess, and their son Luca (grandad Keith is in the back, trying to take a nap) and mum, Sue, behind the wheel - the family of 9 have been driving for what feels like hours. As the miles count down, and the green turns to grey, will Chloe shine the way she knows she can, or is everything she'll ever need already here in the back of this smelly van?

Character Breakdown – each character can be any ethnicity, but we would like to make sure there is diversity across the four characters. 
 
MAISY  (16) – Passionate about young people being heard and respected by the older generations.  Isn’t that interested in sex yet, it all seems a bit scary and painful. Is horrified by what’s happened between Lucy and Jack. Aarron is her oldest friend, but he’s changed so much recently she’s not sure what’s going on. Tries to connect with Leilah but is intimidated by her sexual confidence.           
 
BILLY (15) – Is queer and angry that Sex Ed completely ignores LGBT issues. Is the glue that holds everyone together, the one they all ask advice from. Is passionate about consent and honest communication being taught in schools. The strongest and the coolest of them all, seemingly empowered and self-confident. Is secretly terrified they’ll never find love.      
 
LEILAH (16)  – She is trying to enjoy her sexuality but also feels shame about it. Is now dating Aarron, who seemed lovely but is recently acting weirdly. Is best friends with Lucy and is scared to admit that she’s secretly blaming Lucy for the sexting. 
 
AARRON (16) – Is dating Leilah and madly in love. He knows of her history of dating older lads and is intimated by that. Rather than speaking to Leilah about it, he tries to copy the masculinity role models he sees in popular culture, including watching porn. Is best mates with Jack and is hurt by his behaviour, scared that he’s secretly doubting Jack’s innocence. Is avoiding Maisy who’s known him the longest and somehow represents his childhood.          

Show copy:

One click and it’s gone too far, far too fast. 

As explicit photos of the school’s ‘it’ couple go viral, and real-world consequences of online life spread, so do everyone’s opinions. Leilah’s starting to wonder if her Instagram feels more like a burden than ‘living her best life’. Aarron’s learning how to be a man online and it’s starting to feel toxic. Maisy’s not that into sex, in fact she’s not interested at all thank you very much, why’s everyone always talking about it? Billy’s queer and proud to be, accepted by their friends but ignored by the education system, they’re tired of feeling invisible. 

Can these four friends break through the noise and make real change offline?

Award-winning writer Charlotte Josephine's new play fuses spoken word with live sound and explores the complicated nature of teenage relationships. 

To apply please submit a self tape using these sides. Please email the self tape to Niamh@theatre-centre.co.uk, with a headshot, and if you have it an Acting CV with the subject line NYT Birds and Bees Self Tape.

Looking for a 16 /17 year old who can play 14, do Nottingham accent and has blue eyes.

This role doubles- Laura who is Constance and Alastair's child. She is developmentally behind her peers and so at 14 feels younger. Interested in actors who are NOT slender and beautiful but unique in their own way. Must be able to convincingly play 14, but also doubles with Lena who is a young girl not from this country but from eastern Europe. It needs an actress who can appear young but also deal with heavily traumatic scenes - she's a felt presence throughout the play- but she doesn't have the largest amount of lines. 

Playing age 16 - 17

Height Any

Pay category Same as production (Above Equity Minimum)

Agreements £563.75

This is the world premiere of Beth's new play which spans 5 decades of the webster Family. It is an epic story of family, set in Nottingham from 1965 - to 2016 - and where our place in it lies.
Evocative of Philip Larkin' s poem, "This be the Verse" the play is a tightly wound exploration of what it means to be loved and love in ways that aren't healthy. And combines politics, different eras and different outlooks with that. It has astonishing roles in, with a central performance that will require an actor of the highest calibre. 

Nothing cuts into us like the family knife.

The Dumping Ground BBC

SLICED - Series 2 

SLICED is a crisp, urban comedy for DAVE that centres on the lives, longings and loves of a gang of pizza delivery drivers. it’s about being young and not having any real opportunities. It’s about the kids who for one reason or another slipped through the net at school and who now have to hustle to get their cash game on. It’s about realising that all those dreams that you had when you were a kid aren’t going to come off and that actually if you want to make money, you’ve got to work for it. Which is kind of fine but it’s the stuff that gets in the way whilst you’re trying to make your money that’s the problem....

Back for a second series this hit is even funnier and more brilliant that series one!

He’s just one of those kids who seemingly understands everything and is wise beyond his years. In this episode he wins all the team over with his ability to decipher the craziness of the modern world and offer his own common sensical take on it. He has that kind of zen quality without ever being new age or hippy-ish. his humility and modesty impress everyone apart from Joshua (initially) and leave people feeling inspired and motivated to change their lives. Naomi’s character describes his best when she says:

…He speaks sense. He’s like a lot of the young people these days. They’re redefining things, they’re shaking stuff up, they’re disrupting and reforming, rebuilding things we thought we knew. These kids care. They’re the future…'

THE MODEST PROPOSAL
SYNOPSIS

An affluent family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of guests to
their daughter’s engagement dinner, as they channel their frustrations
and deepest insecurities through harmful and dysfunctional behaviour.
An insidious environment of one upmanship, point scoring and power
politics plays out as a satirical nightmare of haute-bourgeois, ending
in grisly farce.

NICHOLAI: Playing age 13. British
Nicholai is the emotionally neglected youngest child of an affluent
family, set apart as different by a disability. While he relies on domestic worker Luz for emotional support, he heartbreakingly holds the approval of his family in high regard, particularly that of his sister who he is genuinely looks up to. He needs love and respect in order to grow.

Esme: Playing age early 20’s. British
Esme is a type A individual, easily wound up but would never get her
hands dirty overreacting. She’d happily encourage her enemies to
underestimate her beauty and femininity, actively lulling them into a
false sense of security while secretly plotting their demise. Like her
father, she wants money, power and respect. She hates intimacy, her
mother, weakness (particularly in women) and classes anyone who stands
in her way, a degenerate. Her fiancé is intellectually beneath her but
socially and financially her superior.

OLLIE: Playing age 20s. British
Bullingdon Club politician in the making, Ollie was educated the
expensive way and knows his Claret from his Beaujolais. Oscillating
between Killing Eve’s Hugo and W1A’s Ollie, he doesn’t always know the
answer, but he’d never let on. Esme is his dream girl who provides a
sense of security and a certain cultural cache. Her parents are
beneath him but he knows the importance of good Personal
Relationships.

Each actor will be paid £60 a day including VAT and travel expenses and lunch will be provided.

CASTING BRIEF

This film is a visual journey of the life of Aboud Kaplo, an ode to "togetherness"; we present the unity between Aboud and all the people who helped him along the road. We will follow our hero, but the hero of our film is Aboud’s violin. A classical sound that will guide us through the story. I’d like to visualize Aboud’s music as a moving light source that illuminates his story as a path of life. We will see his life as a surreal timeline where we have literally thrown a light on Aboud and all the people who crossed his path and helped him to get where he is today.

Aboud - 3 different ages

Aboud 1 (16y) - Syrian, ideally with a little experience in violin

SPELL | Paramount Feature Film | Casting brief

From the writer of ‘Salt’, ‘Total Recall’ and 'Point Break'; Kurt Wimmer, comes an Indie-style edge of your seat psychological thriller. Set deep in rural Appalachian mountains, where the weather is unpredictable, phone signal is minimal and the lawless locals are superstitious. The use of subtle yet ominous overtures sets the tone as Marq and his family head off to the foothills of Appalachia for a family funeral. When their car is caught in a flash flood, Marq is the only survivor. He wakes up in a strange bed, in a strange house, no contact to the outside world and all alone. His anxiety is piqued when he is convinced that the elderly couple who saved him are scheming to murder him. With elements of horror, superstition and folk hoodoo magic this story cuts to the core of our darkest most nightmarish fears. 

SAM - 18+ to play 16yrs, African American. Slightly spoilt mid-teen daughter of Marq and Veora. Good sense of humour, but dripping with classic teen sarcasm. She’s desperate to leave this creepy rural setting and get back to her creature comforts in the city. Virtually attached to her phone. Close relationship with her brother, together they harmlessly tease each other and their parents. 

TY - 18+ to play 17yrs, African American. Cool, slightly indulged and sullen mid-teen son of Marq and Veora. A great basketball player, he’s a good kid at heart going through difficult teen years. Torn between retaining his street cred while respecting his parents and meeting their expectations. He clearly feels superior to the local boy he meets at the gas station, patronising him, yet something suggests the confidence he projects is merely a pretense. Recently suspended for a fight in school, he’s teetering on the edge of going down the wrong path, but with his parents’ love and support we suspect he has a bright future ahead.

Dates: 1 November - 20 December 2019

Tin Star 3 | TV Casting 

Casting director: Emma Stafford

Production details
Closing date: 05/08/2019 
Pay category: Equity/PACT
Production location: Liverpool, United Kingdom
Production dates: Shoot: 9th September - 13th October 2019

Kayden (Male, 14 - 16)
Description: 14 – 16 – but due to the violent nature of the material – the actor must be 16. Needs to look younger though. Scouse accent. 

Knows and works with Georgia Nowak and Divya Singh (2 x NHS pharmacists who work testing drugs for Michael Quinn - the gang leader who ‘owns’ Liverpool). Kayden does the couriering of the drugs in a bag on his back, making deliveries on his bike. He’s cocky, street savvy and stands his ground, yet also discreet. 

He’s not intimidated easily but tries too hard to run with the big players – he’s seen and done too much already for his tender years. Georgia likes him because he’s reliable. He likes working for Georgia because she’s fair, straight down the line and treats him like he is an adult. Of course, this is messed up but somehow this makes sense in their world. He prides himself that he has never been stopped by the police, and he’s good at what he does. He’s doing things his way… or so he thinks.

Height: Any
Appearance: Any
Pay category: Equity/PACT

If you are suitable, please send a recent headshot, a short bio, and your location to jen@emmastafford.tv

We are currently accepting self-tape auditions for the role of HERO in our film project GUN FUN, directed by MATUS KRAJNAK.  Matus is a talented and promising young director, who was nominated for Young Director Award 2015 in Cannes, for his SEX commercial (click link).

Hero is in his 20s, he is  attractive / has an edge to him that is attractive. He’s a bit of a street kid (doesn’t mean he’s 100% street at all though), a bit of a poseur and someone who wants to be the cool kid.

This is a feature length film project for cinema, intended for international distribution. While the script successfully reached the second round of consideration for the Sundance Filmwriter’s Lab, it is one of only two debut films selected each year to receive the funding and support from German broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg (rbb) and Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg. These are two hugely reputable German TV & Film Institutions who consider both Matus and his script to have fantastic potential. Not least, the script idea was greatly received at the 67th Berlinale. You can watch Matus’s pitch and find out more detailed information about our film, the crew and the German Institutions supporting this project here: GUN FUN

So what is the film about?

GUN FUN is a psycho-thriller with black comedy elements told through a perspective of a young gunaholic, HERO.

Director:      
Matus Krajnak
Producer: Patrick Schorn
Production:
The German Film and Television Academy Berlin, dffb.de

SELF TAPE DETAILS

If further time is needed then actors can contact us directly to request additional time.

Ideally, we would like the self-tape to be done with an American accent. However, the most important focus at this stage is that the actor  feels at ease performing for the self-tape, so a native accent will be acceptable.

Advice for the self-tape:
•    Please do try to record both scenes with another actor / person present (where possible)
•    Ideally, we would like you to speak with an American accent
•    Please record the self tape horizontally
•    If you are unable to record both scenes, please just submit your preferred one
•    If you have very limited time, we are willing to accept a read through of both scenes
•    It would be helpful if you would record a short introduction (tell us a little about your background  / let us know what is your favourite drug or gun film - and why)

The deadline for the the self tape is 14th June.

Edinburgh Fringe | Boundless Theatre 

Boundless Theatre are currently casting for a new gig/music theatre show by Brigitte Aphrodite and Quiet Boy which will play in Paines Plough's Roundabout throughout the Edinburgh Fringe 

CASTING
Three performers who identify as women, playing age of 17, must be 18+.
 
GIRL – 17, from London, recently moved to Margate.  Has recently come out to her mum. She finds escapism through dreaming and imagination.  She forms a band with her new found friends to fight the injustices in the world. Witty. Funny. Punk Spirit. Think little Simz. Good with lyricism and rap, strong singer, good mover and ideally plays an instrument. We are interested in cultural diversity and performers of mixed heritage.
 
TAM – 17, originally from Eritrea now living in Margate.  She came to the UK as a refugee and has been housed in Kent. During the course of the play her refugee status is under threat. She is kind, smart and friends with the Girl and Dust. Old for her years.  Punk spirit. Good singer and mover must play at least one musical instrument, drums and keys would be optimum. We are keen to meet a young refugee performer and are open to meet people from both Eritrea and other countries. 

The script is still in development and will be shaped much further in the rehearsal room. TAM is currently written as Eritrean, inspired by brilliant women the writers have worked with through Kent Refugee Action Network, and the lyricism/poetry of some of her dialogue is shaped by her nationality, but we're open to rewriting elements to better fit the right actor if they are not Eritrean. 

DUST – 17, from a privileged background and lives in Kent.  Politicized and engaged in activism, always wanting to fight the good fight but hasn’t found the right people to do it with.

 Zodiak Kids and casting director Kevin Riddle are casting a new comedy-drama series for BBC iPlayer called LAUREN & CRAIG. We are looking for female actors with a playing age of 16-18 for two of the regular roles. 

Candidates must be available 18th March - 1st June 2019.

This is a paid job. It films in Northern Ireland and all travel/accommodation will be provided for the duration of the shoot.

See below for information on the show and the characters we are looking for.  

LAUREN & CRAIG
A new comedy-drama series for BBC iPlayer about the continuing story of teen stepbrother and sister Lauren and Craig, who are taking the next big step into adulthood together.

The show is a spin off from CBBC’s much loved comedy series Millie Inbetween and is designed to be a transitional show catering to an under-represented audience between CBBC and BBC3. It will feel authentic but also fun and celebratory.

YASMIN
Playing age: 16-18.  A fun, confident party girl.  A natural and persuasive leader.  Yasmin comes from a conservative Muslim family and keeps her social life secret from her parents while she works out how to reconcile these two parts of herself. She is bisexual and knows this will cause conflict with her parents.

Any accent.  We are looking for actors of Asian or African/Afro-Carribean heritage for this role.

MEL
Playing age: 16-18.  A confident oddball.  She can sometimes have a bit of an attitude but also a sense of fun and warmth.  Can be intense at times but has a quick sense of humour and can show her vulnerability once you get to know her.  

Any accent.  Mel moved to the UK from Poland as a baby so we are looking for Caucasian actors for this role.

If anyone would like to submit themselves for consideration they should email ASAP a recent photo to assistant@kevinriddlecasting.co.uk with the subject heading 'LAUREN & CRAIG SUBMISSION'.


The Crown Casting

The Crown Season Four (Television)

Season Four of the multi-award-winning megahit series THE CROWN - the first original Netflix production to be made in the UK - is an ingenious epic drama about the life of Queen Elizabeth II spanning her six decades on the throne. Series Four covers the period 1979 - 1990. It's the 80s and we follow the social change in Britain during the tumultuous premiership of Margaret Thatcher alongside the equally tumultuous relationship between Prince Charles and the young Lady Diana. The Queen, Margaret Thatcher and Lady Diana Spencer are the three strong women at the heart of this season about the shifting dynamics between the Royal House of Windsor and Number 10 Downing Street. 

It boasts a crack team of creatives: spectacular scripts from twice-Oscar-nominated Peter Morgan ("Bohemian Rhapsody"; "The Queen"; "Frost/Nixon"; "The Last King of Scotland"; "The Damned United"; "Rush") and executive-produced by the brilliant award-winning producing veterans Andy Harries and Suzanne Mackie. The superb Benjamin Caron will be returning as lead director

Production dates (eg. shoot, rehearsals) Shooting in UK from August 19th 2019 to March 15th 2020

Director: Benjamin Caron and others TBC
Producer/EPs: Andy Harries, Suzanne Mackie, Robert Fox, Matthew Byam Shaw and Stephen Daldry
Pay category: Equity/PACT
Company: Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television for Netflix

Diana (Female)
Aged 18 - 22. We need a staggeringly talented young actress to play the iconic figure of Diana from 1977 to 1990. It's a major new leading part in this huge hit show.  

We first meet her as a gawky, wild and neglected 16 year-old when her father has had a stroke and her sister Sarah is dating Prince Charles. We follow her through her fractured courtship with Charles, their wedding and her subsequent initiation into the Royal Family. As she struggles to come to terms with her newfound Royal status, she also comes to the heartbreaking realisation that her marriage is not the fairytale she once imagined it to be. Through the birth of her children and her fight for her mental and physical survival, we watch a transformation from damaged and neglected child to icon and survivor on the international stage. 

We need a mesmerising new young star with extraordinary range - she has to play charming comedy, social exhibitionist on the world stage, desperate and lonely self-harmer at her lowest ebb and the kind of psychological intensity of Mia Farrow in ROSEMARY'S BABY

We need someone who can look and sound like Diana. Diana was 5' 10" and her voice quality is instantly recognisable. 

The youth of the character is crucial to us - the story is of a very young girl negotiating great trials in her life and the age difference between her and our Prince Charles is key. 

This is a one-off career-defining opportunity to set the world alight. The character blazes through superb scenes in an incredible trajectory across the new season. The actor will be required for one season only.

Anyone suitable and interested should email robert@ninagold.co.uk with:
-A recent picture (a phone selfie is fine)
-Age, height & eye colour
-Where they come from
-A bit about their acting experience

Deadline: Monday 25th February 2019

Role of YOUNG UHTRED for the Netflix TV series The Last Kingdom.

We are looking for 16-18 year old (above licensing age) who are strong leading actors.

The series would be shooting from the 22nd March - 30th September in Budapest and the actor would need to be available for this whole period. 

Please see the character description below:
Uhtred's son. Self-confident without being priggish. He's a little grave and solemn but can also be very sardonic and dry. He's clever like Uhtred but less governed by passion. Young Uhtred knows his father hates his Christianity. Having grown up in the church, he's come to believe that Uhtred is a blood-thirsty heathen. An uneasy relationship ensues. Young Uhtred will find himself thrust into the role of heir apparent to Uhtred and will struggle, then thrive. Unlike Osferth, he covets the idea of becoming a priest and it is only the belief that he has a chance of redeeming his father that keeps him following the warrior path for now. He will grow to both love it and be skilled at it, and learn that a man of faith can also be a man of the sword.

Casting Call | Etcetera Theatre 

AUDITION: TWENTY-SOMETHING MALE ROLE REQUIRED 

‘He got up again and went and got an old tea towel and put that over the dog’s head and kneeled down again and then hit it really hard with the brick. Quite a few times, until it was quiet. And then he came inside and went to the bathroom and threw up and he left the dog out there with the tea towel over its head.’ 

After a 4 star production of ‘Uncle Vanya’ (Camden People’s Theatre, 2018) INKWELL PRODUCTIONS are looking to cast a male actor (playing age 20-28) of any ethnicity for the role of ‘Rob’ in the one man show ‘Stacy' by Jack Thorne (This is England, Glue, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child). Stacy is to be performed at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden March 5th-10th. Auditions and rehearsals will take place in London. 

'In the monologue play ‘Stacy, twenty-something Rob tells the story of a confusing couple of days in which everything in his life seems to have gone wrong.’ ‘Stacy’ explores loneliness, toxic masculinity and the consequences of male rage. We are looking for a performer that can carry a show and enthrall, move and disturb an audience in equal measure. It is a very meaty role that will require a high level of commitment, professionalism as well as a sensitivity for. There will be a month of rehearsals before the 6 night run. The role is unpaid, but it is an incredible performing opportunity in an excellent central venue.

To apply, send a headshot/recent photograph, your CV, Spotlight (if possible) and the audition date you would like to caoimheeblair@gmail.com with the subject heading ‘STACY AUDITION’. 

If based in London but unable to make the audition, please specify in the email and we shall arrange a video submission audition.

Edinburgh Fringe Casting

Wonky Donkey Theatre are looking to cast two actors (one female, one male) for an upcoming performance at the Edinburgh Fringe in August (1st-31st of August), with the possibility of a London preview.  Rehearsals will take place in London.

‘You & Me?’ [working title] is a two-hander anti-love story, performed in the third person. A man and a woman, both in their early 20’s, meet in a club. They are immediately attracted to each other, and despite the unromantic setting, they seem to have a genuine connection. Their story should be simple enough. But in a society where we create personas and build up walls to defend fragile egos, it doesn’t always play out like that. 

There is a continual interplay between the stark contrast of what people say and think. Veering from dialogue between W and M, and the direct address of third person narration, the audience witnesses the frustrating failure of the pair to openly connect, even in the most seemingly intimate of situations. 

Role 1: 
W is in her early 20s. She is sarcastic, carefree and confident - well that is how she appears. In reality, she is insecure, secretly hopeful, and entirely unsure of who she is. This character veers between the persona that she shows to the world, and the true self that she reveals to the audience through the performance of her inner monologues. There are no physical requirements for W, she can look like anyone, and have any accent. However, the part has a lot of dialogue, and W is on stage for the whole play, so the actor will need to have excellent diction and energy. A good sense of comic timing is important, but also the ability to show vulnerability when needed. 

Role 2: 
M is in his early 20s. He is trying to fight against his nature, trying not to be the weak one in his overtly manly group of friends. However internally, he is sensitive, insecure, and afraid of rejection. He veers between the persona that he tries to develop throughout the play, and the rather more awkward, unsure person that he reveals to the audience through the performance of his inner monologues. There are no physical requirements for M, he can look like anyone, and have any accent. However, the part has a lot of dialogue, and M is on stage for the whole play, so the actor will need to have excellent diction and energy. A good sense of comic timing is important, but also the ability to show vulnerability when needed. 

Salary: This is an unpaid position, however if there is any profit it will be shared between the company. The purpose of this project is to run a full production at the Edinburgh Fringe, a wonderful opportunity that affords great exposure. Comp tickets will be provided to reviewers and agents and our cast will have access to comp tickets for these purposes.

Shackleton Stowaway Casting 

Shackleton’s Stowaway was a Sold Out show at this year’s Ed Fringe. It is a 2 hander, starring a Shackleton and a Stowaway. We are currently casting for the role of the Stowaway.

Dates of Production: 23rd to 28th April 2018
Salary: NMW for 4 weeks, including rehearsals in April.
Deadline: December 3rd 2018.
Casting: December 2018.

The Stowaway should have a playing age of between 18 and 21. We need someone with fine comic skills, but also able to deliver a poetic line. Experience in physical comedy, too. Ideal height would be less than 5’9. Ability to do a Welsh accent is a must. 

Shackleton’s Stowaway is based on the real events of the legendary Endurance expedition to Antarctica. It follows the tragicomic misfortunes of an 18-year-old stowaway aboard the expedition. Initially, he's in complete awe of Shackleton. But this fades by the time Shackleton has gotten them trapped in the polar ice pack – even more so when Endurance actually breaks up and sinks. This leaves them adrift on the ice, hundreds of miles from civilisation. But ‘when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, you get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton’ (Raymond Priestley).

They are looking for up to 100 members to be responsive party-goers where our two main characters have an encounter with another. It'd be shooting at Trafik, 331 Old Street, EC1V 9LE.

Bobby’s physicality exudes simplicity but underneath, he is a gentle individual who is sensitive to his surroundings and interacts with others in a compassionate manner. He has the quiet confidence of someone who has been loved even if he hasn’t needed to display this yet. He has self-worth and is part of a small group of friends who are loyal to each other but aren’t the most popular kids in school. He lets Carol mollycoddle him, but there’s no mistaking that they are equals. He feels the need to protect her and is now of an age where he can start to do that. They are close and Bobby often takes the piss, lightening the mood. Bobby is resentful of his father, Murray, for how he treats his mum, but this builds into anger as he finds himself embroiled in Glasgow’s underground criminal world, forcing his coming of age.

THE HALF MOON SHANIA

Burnt Lemon Theatre are looking for an actress who can sing and play bass guitar to join the cast of their award winning punk production THE HALF MOON SHANIA - winner of Musical Theatre Review’s ‘Best Musical Award 2018’ at Edinburgh Fringe.

Playing age 18-25.

Dates (inc rehearsal and shows): 21st January - 10th February

This is a paid opportunity.

Rehearsals and performances will be in London.

LOLA:

Lola is a young woman fuelled by the fire that sits in her stomach. After years of searching, she has found a sense of belonging and ambition as bass guitarist and vocalist in punk rock girl band – ‘The G Stringz’. Straying from her once perfectly paved career path, she puts her everything into seeing that The G Stringz take the world by storm. Her credulous curiosity can lead her astray, but her bandmates cling on to her docs and plant her two feet back on the stage. Despite her puffed-up punk persona, she’s vulnerable. Defensive at times. And made to feel small by the unsteady unknown her future holds.

Please email your interest to burntlemontheatre@outlook.com with your CV and a bit about you. We will be in contact with audition details in the next week.

WORK (Drama / Comedy)

An audition for a SHORT FILM. 
Looking for TWO MALES and ONE FEMALE. 

THEY MUST LOOK OLDER. This is crucial. So beards, height, stockiness are all things we are looking for as the roles are relatively older.

Alex (Playing age: Mid 30's)
A fun guy. Loves to have banter and likes to make little sly comments every now and again.

Marc (Playing age: Early 30's)
A serious man who can take and make a joke at the same time. Likes to impose his manliness.

Stephlana (Playing age:20's)

If can speak another language would be an absolute bonus.

Synopsis:
We all have our work to do, right? We join Marc and Alex as they converse on a fallen tree in the woods, taking a break from a night shift. Here they talk about their managers, lifestyle and even compare the sandwiches each other made for work today. Then, of course, they have to get back to their job...and it’s a job we wouldn’t  expect from these two. As I said, we all have work to do, what that work entails is different for everyone.

Performers needed: Full details


The Left Behind | BBC Three

Shoot dates: 14th November for 2 weeks in Cardiff
Rehearsal wk of 5th November in Cardiff

This is a paid BBC job

“The Left Behind” is about the people who’ve been excluded from the successes of modern Britain – with empathy, and from their point of view.

We are looking for genuine Welsh talent.  The show is set in Cardiff. It doesn’t matter if they no longer live in Wales we would still love them to audition to. They don’t have to be based in Wales, they just need to have a Welsh accent. 

CHARACTERS

GETHIN:

Playing age 18-22.

A white working class boy – one of the ‘left behind’ – the vestigial working class who feel humiliated, and excluded from the successes of middle class, PR-marinated Britain. He has no ideology – in fact, he has no clue about politics, just this nagging feeling that him and his mates/family are ‘second class citizens’ and deep down, he might feel a bit inferior to the Muslims and migrants who are coming into his vast council estate (Ely) and doing so well.

You wouldn’t call him good looking – definitely not - but he’s likeable. He’s the kind of working class lad who grew up knowing you have to come off a bit hard, but his heart isn’t in it. He’s got a big heart, and he likes a laugh.  

He’s never really been out of Cardiff, and he hasn’t been working for that long, and his people have never had a pot to piss in. So he’s still trying to work the world out… He doesn’t yet have a working theory of why things are turning out so shit. He keeps getting ‘jobs’ but they are zero hours, and he hasn’t quite got the hang of how to suck up to the bosses so they give him more shifts. So he keeps moving from one shit service job to the other – MacDonalds, KFC, superstore, Chicken Shack.

He’s scared. As a kid, he saw his dad lose his job, unravel and slip into addiction and homelessness, as the old white working class certainties disintegrated around him. And he’s mum passed too. It was a while ago, the wounds have mostly healed, but they aren’t that far under the surface. He holds on tight to his sister and niece –the last family he has. And he’s gonna do whatever he can to stay with them and make a success of his life. And he’s still young and naïve enough to believe that he can.

Audition Scene 

ELIND:

Playing age 18-22.

Elind is a Cardiff native. She’s from a Muslim background.

Elind isn’t beautiful exactly – but she went to school with white people and she knows that white lads find her attractive… She knows she can never be with a white boy, but it’s hard to ignore the buzz she gets when she’s around the attentive Gethin.. She’s a little bit cocky and sarcastic and little bit flawed.

She likes Gethin and she does wonder if she’s being unfair to him, leading him on – but as she thinks about it, she doesn’t think so: it must be obvious to him that they come from such different worlds that they could never be together. She’s likeable, really likes a laugh, likes being out and about. But at home it’s a different story. She’s a good Muslim girl -  doesn’t want to question the authority of the de facto head of the family, her brother. For the most part, this dual identity – good Muslim girl and Cardiff lass – isn’t something she feels that conflicted about. It’s instinctive. She just switches from one mode to the other, cos that’s what she’s been doing since she was 14.

Audition Scene 

SELF-TAPE AUDITION INSTRUCTIONS

You don’t need to have a professional camera to film - filming on your phone if that’s all you have is absolutely fine.  Please try and be as familiar with the dialogue as possible. Please have someone behind the camera reading in the other characters lines. This is essential. It doesn’t matter if they can’t act but it is important to hear the other character’s lines. When filming frame the shot from approximately youR waist upwards.

The deadline for audition tapes is: FRIDAY 5TH OCTOBER

Please state on your email:

  • Your name
  • The organisation you heard about the audition from
  • Where you live/are from in Wales
  • contact email & mobile

Please load audition tapes to vimeo and copy and paste video link (as well as password if required) into an email and send to me. Please do not use wetransfer. We do not want to download videos (as these have expiration dates and we may not manage to download them before they expire). They will be too big to simply attach to an email.

Please email audition links to: bbc3drama@rachelsheridancasting.com by 5th October.

Going Slightly Mad by Michael Hajiantonis

A vibrant, engaging exploration of a modern day psychiatric ward, inspired by true events.

The play follows Max (gender blind), their rollercoaster experience sectioned on a psychiatric ward, and the people they meet on the way.  A blend of naturalistic, physical, and expressive moments, we intend to create an honest and hopeful piece of theatre. This is a play about an experience that deals with challenging subject matters, and the audience may come in with some presumptions. But ultimately, it will be an entertaining experience, hopefully for the audience, and definitely for the cast. 
As it’s an original play, this is a chance to work on a fluid and live piece of theatre. We are looking for diverse actors who are willing to challenge and to be challenged, and who want to engage with the creative process. All actors, aside from the one playing Max, will get the opportunity to multi-role, and showcase variety.

We are looking for 5 actors, all of which will play 1 of 5 patients, of varying ages and life circumstances. 4 of the actors will also multi-role as doctor’s, nurses, and a whole assortment of characters. Do not worry about race, gender, accent, age, or any other factors. We are just looking for people who want to get stuck in.

Cast
Gender-blind x3
Female x1
Male x1 OPEN AUDITIONS: Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th

BIG BOYS by Jack Rooke

Casting Director: Little a Productions

Big Boys is a comedy drama for BBC3, written by Jack Rooke (Broadcast Hotshot 2017). It is a heavily autobiographical story of two young men on the opposite ends of the ‘masculinity spectrum’; Jack Bishop being a closeted, grief-stricken yet quick-witted teenager and Danny King being a more stereotypical ‘lad’, secretly struggling with severe mental health issues. The two of them find common ground opening up about their struggles and soon an important friendship blossoms.

Who is Jack?

JACK BISHOP (19) is a strange lad. His Dad’s just died, his Mum’s his best mate, he’s in the closet and he fancies 90’s french footballer Eric Cantona. 

In two years of bereavement, he’s gone from wank-machine teenage boy to sofa-ridden anxious telly addict. Every now and then we see a hidden spark - the way he uses his dad's death to his advantage, the way him and hilarious mum Peggy cope with grief and his quick-witted thoughts on the grieving process. He somehow manages to get into the naff local uni on a scholarship but despite Peggy’s best efforts he struggles to cope and doesn't go for a whole year, instead choosing to spend months in bed as a recluse. This is until the following September arrives when his degree is about to start, and this is now his chance to become a person again.

What we're looking for;

  • Playing Age: 19 / 20
  • A Working class actor preferable or Working to Middle Class actor.
  • White or mixed-race ethnicity.
  • Someone with a distinctive look, that has something slightly odd about them (Think Sharon Rooney in Mad Fat Diary or Craig Roberts in Submarine)
  • Someone who can play both bumbling fool and protagonist hero.
  • Ideally Jack has distinctive hair ; big and curly or something eye-catching, but not compulsory.

When are we filming? 

We shoot w/c 10th September and you will be needed for a days rehearsal before that week

What we need from you

Please send a recent picture of yourself and a link to your showreel (if you have one) to; look@littleaproductions.com

JEM (Male)
12/13yrs. Must have a strong ear for accents.
On the cusp of leaving childish games and entering manhood. But certainly still fully engaged in the world of play and make believe.

A great sense of justice, and right and wrong.

DILL (Male)
9/10yrs. Must have a strong ear for accents.
Not from the same town as Scout and Jem. Sent every summer to stay with his Auntie where he makes friends with them. An oddity. An understanding and view of the world older than his years. Not given much attention by his own parents so he looks up to Atticus. Loves the stories of films and books. A great curiosity for the world. Again, happy to escape and play in the world of make believe .

Frankenstein: how to make a monster

CALL out to join Performer pool

Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster is a Battersea Arts Centre and BAC Beatbox Academy Production.

The production was made by members of the BAC Beatbox Academy - a participation project for 16-29 yr olds which engages young people local to Battersea Arts Centre and has been running in the building for 10 years. Over a year and a half, the show was imagined and devised by an auditioned group of exceptional young artists.

From July onwards, the show will be touring to large venues such as the Liverpool Everyman Theatre and BAC’s newly re-opened Grand Hall.

In order to work flexibly with all the performers involved, we are looking to create a larger ensemble of touring artists who can perform the show.

We are looking to cast 3-6 exceptional people to join the production ‘performer pool’.

You do not need to have professional stage experience, only to show talent.

We are looking for outstanding individuals who are:

  • Singers (who can beatbox or show ability to learn)
  • Beatboxers (who can sing or show ability to learn)
  • Rappers/spoken word artists (who can sing/beatbox or show ability to learn)
  • Comfortable with basic movement work
  • Open-minded, team-players who are interested in performing in a vocal collective
  • Able to commit to touring dates (NB we anticipate touring will occur within term times)
  • Aged 16-29

 

We welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and particularly encourage BAME performers and those with disabilities. We encourage members of the BAC beatbox academy to apply.

They are auditioning on Thursday 14 June at Theatre Royal Windsor and Sunday 17 June at Baldwin Hall Eton.

Feature Film Casting 

Casting Agent | Sally Mcleery Casting 

Daniel (Male, white-caucasian, neutral RP accent)

Daniel is 15, but as this is such a big role we will need to cast someone who is above licensing age (must turn 16 by the end of this academic year). He should be no older than 19, and if that age must look younger.

He is shy, introverted, socially awkward. He wears black clothing but he isn't a goth; he doesn't really know "what" he is. He has pasty skin and greasy longish hair. He's physically awkward, not quite grown into his body. 

A girl at school described him as "a suicidal kangaroo" because of his glum demeanour. But Daniel is also capable of real sensitivity, and he has a very dry sense of humour. It's really important that we find someone who understands where the jokes are in this, and can be funny when required.

Daniel listens to Metallica and Megadeath, and dreams of one day fronting his own band "Skullslayer". He plays a lot of video games, and has only one friend, Ky, who is equally clueless, but a bit more confident than Daniel. 

Throughout the 6-week summer holiday, Daniel and his Mum both go through a small, subtle but definite transformation as individuals and as a pair. Our "Daniel" needs to be a sensitive actor who can grasp the nuances of this gentle process. 

Please see attached picture for reference, which is from the original graphic novel. It's not hugely important that we find someone who looks like him (makeup and wardrobe will be on hand to transform the right boy), but it gives you an idea of his demeanour.

Summary
'When someone looks back and writes a history of this summer, two people they will almost certainly leave out are Sue and Daniel Bagnold...'

Sue, 52, works in the local library of a quiet suburb of London. Her son Daniel, 15, is still at school. He is supposed to be spending the summer holidays with his dad and his dad's pregnant new wife in Florida. When they cancel his trip, Sue and Daniel face six long weeks together...

Days of the Bagnold Summer is a superbly written, character study of a mother and son, in which nothing much appears to happen and yet everything does, and is to be directed by Simon Bird (best know as Will in The Inbetweeners) for Stigma Films.

It is based on the award winning graphic novel of the same name.

We film in London in August. It's a lead role and so you will need to be available for the whole of August.

Anyone interested should send a photo, their date of birth and contact details to sallymccleerycasting@gmail.com.

IN MY SKIN | BBC Pilot 

Casting Agent: Rachel Sheridan Casting

The BBC are looking for genuine young welsh actors for a new pilot. The pilot will shoot for 1 week in Cardiff. Exact dates are TBC but likely to be end of August/early September. And then if commissioned by the BBC there would then be a series but I imagine this wouldn’t be until late 2019. Please also note this is a Pact Equity Paid job.

We have 5 great roles that we are currently casting for. The characters are aged 16 but we will consider up to age 24 if the students look young.  We are looking for genuine Welsh talent.  The show is set in Cardiff. If you have ex-students who no longer live in Wales we would love them to audition to. They don’t have to be based in Wales, they just need to have a Welsh accent. 

Don’t worry for now if you can’t do a specific Cardiff accent and you eg have a Swansea or Bangor accent we can look at fine tuning the accent at a later stage. For now we are more concerned with finding young actors who fit the character brief.

If you fit the bill, please contact bbcpilot@rachelsheridancasting.com with your photo (and CV if you have one) ASAP. Deadline for getting in touch Fri 8th June.

Let's Get Lost

'Let's Get Lost' will be Exploding Whale Theatre's second show, after the success of their first show 'Heroes', which has now enjoyed four sell out runs and will be opening Sydenham Arts Festival in June. We are the resident theatre company of new studio theatre Katzpace, which is run by our artistic director.

In a quiet seaside town, newcomer Alfie finds the mysterious Wez asleep on what turns out to be her older brother's grave. An unlikely friendship between the two propels them towards a series of events that will change their lives forever. Inspired by JM Barrie's Peter Pan, resident company Exploding Whale Theatre present 'Let's Get Lost;' a modern tale of the rejection of adult life come too soon, and a retreat into the safety of childhood. Rehearsals will be starting in June and will be held at Katzpace in London Bridge.

WEZ (17) - Wez is the protagonist of our story. Having lost her mum and her brother in the space of six months she is left facing the reality of her own mortality and the fact that she is not as invincible as she once thought. She often combats these issues with humour, sometimes falling too far into sarcasm and pushing those close to her away when her feelings become too strong. She has a huge guard up and struggles to let new people in.

Jamie (19): Jamie was both best friends with Pete and boyfriend to Wez and so perhaps knows both of them better than anyone else. He was there when Pete 'died' and Wez has held him responsible for it ever since. His loyalty to Pete and care for Wez allows him to withdraw the information that Pete is still alive, truly believing that this is the best thing to do, even though it cripples him with loneliness.

This project will be a profit share with rehearsals starting in June and performances end of July/ early August.

Short Film Casting

'Versions of us' is a short comedy-drama about the tiny moments which change our lives forever. Simon is navigating the first meeting with his new girlfriend Veronica's scatty mother when he gets an out-of-the-blue phone call from his ex, Elsa. She claims to be stuck on the side of the motorway and need rescuing. When he reaches her, Elsa's revelation turns his whole world on its head.

SIMON (25) - A bit all-over-the-place. Well-meaning and, falls in love easily and is often too cautious of hurting people’s feelings to say what he actually thinks. Has a tendency to play the hero, even when he has nothing useful to offer and can be easily manipulated. A nervous person but quick to smile.

ELSA (24) – A free spirit. Doesn’t have her life together but is resolute, determined and strong-willed. Still in love with Simon, despite steering their relationship into the rocks in a very definite way. Very good at self-sabotage, but ultimately an optimist who believes everything will work out. Occasionally manipulative and untruthful, sticks very closely to her own moral compass but it’s not quite the same as everyone else’s. 

VERONICA (23) – Open, honest, tolerant and down-to-earth. Has a clear direction in her life and is ambitious enough to get there. Healthily self-aware, she is eager to build a better relationship with her mother now they are both adults but also cautious of becoming too much like her.

Feature Film | Sweet Sue

Lara Manwaring Casting

Shoot Dates:
The film will have rehearsals for 5 weeks towards the end of June and then there will be a 4 - 6 week shoot from September. The shoot will take place in the UK.

"Sweet Sue"
Feature film 'Sweet Sue' has been developed with BBC Films and is being directed by Leo Leigh and produced by BAFTA winning and nominated producer Scott O' Donnell (Home, Work).

The film centres around Sue, a woman who is trying her best to make sense of her solitary middle - age.  Realist, dramatic, darkly funny and sometimes tragic, it's a film about crossing lives and colliding. A character study of lonely people trying to fill voids in their realities, anyway they know how.

The second biggest role in the film after Sue is the role of

Anthony -  17/18 years old,  attention seeking, effeminate, loves the idea of fame, is in a dance crew called 'Electric Destiny', gets spray tans.  Is a force of nature and seems full of confidence with a lot to say but is extremely insecure about a ,lot of things.

Dancing skills are not essential for this character - but any experience in dancing would be a bonus.

I've attached a photo reference for this character - obviously this is quite an extreme look and this will mainly be done in hair and makeup to the actor who is cast in the role but it will give you a sense of the character i.e a more  macho. round faced looking young men wouldn't work for this role.

 

It would be great if anyone who matches the brief and is interested emails a recent photo along with their age and contact information to assistant@laramanwaring.com.


Music Video Casting

We’re an award-winning freelance filmmaking duo (check out our stuff here: www.vimeo.com/charlieandjoe) who’ve been commissioned to make a music video - and we need YOUR help!

We’re looking for a gang of 15-20 yr old boys who’ll be portraying a group of mates who hold their own Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling tournaments! It’s a really fun idea that involves a lot of play-wrestling and partying; it also has the potential to be really poignant with an emotional punch! Our criteria for what we’re looking for is really very broad - basically anyone with a unique and dynamic face and look!

The video is totally narrative based - no dancing or performing, more like a no-dialogue short film than a proper music video. We’re also filming on VHS; harking back to a proper 90’s aesthetic and era of home-video wrestling tapes.

The gig is unpaid, HOWEVER you’ll obviously be fed and watered, and it’ll be a really fun day of Luchadore masks, cycling about and generally mucking around. You’ll also be starring in an incredibly stylish film!

The shoot will take a weekend (two days MAX) and we’re aiming to have it shot and edited before the end of April. We have pretty much everything else sorted (locations, camera etc) so we really want to crack on with it ASAP.

As there’s no dialogue, we won’t be holding auditions - it’ll really be all about your passion, availability and your look! Anyone interested and after more info, please don’t hesitate to get in touch directly!

NFTS Casting

Ryan
Ryan, 14, is the eldest of Branwen’s younger brothers. He too has no idea how to handle his mum’s terminal illness, and is bored and frustrated by the drab town he lives in. As a result he lashes out at anyone that tries to get close to him. He bullies his younger brother Josh so he can feel in control, and is currently seeking acceptance into an older, more dangerous gang of local boys, a path which could go terribly wrong. 
 
Josh
Josh, 12, is Branwen’s youngest brother. He hangs from Ryan’s coattails as he feels this is what he should do to find acceptance in the local community, but he doesn’t agree with Ryan’s violent outbursts. He would like to be closer to his sister, but he doesn’t know how to communicate with a teenage girl and he’s frightened of being rejected (especially without mum capable of acting peacemaker any more). 
 
Accent for both - slight hint of a Southern England rural accent preferred if they can do that
Appearance - Nothing too specific though need to be caucasian to match Branwen (already cast)
 
We’re shooting somewhere near London w/c 14th May 2018.

Short Film | Casting

STATIONARY is a story about staying put versus moving forward. About masculinity, platonic relationships, and looking beyond your own experience.

Taking place in a parked car over the course of one afternoon, Stationary follows former drug dealer Jimmy, 23, as he confronts his drug dealing childhood best friend Che, 22, about the example she's setting to impressionable younger brother Gino, 18.

Based in part on personal experience, Stationary is a look through the keyhole into a lifelong friendship that ended prematurely. Five years ago, Jimmy was arrested in a Police raid designed for Che and lucky to escape significant jail time.

Years have passed but the emotional scarring of the incident remains as does Jimmy’s bitterness towards Che. Jimmy struggles with his own masculinity as he now watches history on the cusp of repeating itself with Gino.

What unfolds is a pivotal moment between two strong characters whose lives have taken different paths, and whose personal shortcomings are brought to the surface by one another as they grapple with what is best for Gino.

Music Video Casting

Amazing opportunity to be in a powerful music video for U.K. grime artist Xaviour on SATURDAY 10th MARCH (THIS SATURDAY) in Waltham Abby (just outside East London). Check out the draft Video from the director: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SesHF8hubQ

Xaviour, who is signed to Dice Recordings who also have Big Narstie, Izzie Gibbs, Scouse Tremz and Dullah Beatz on their books. The video is with director Michael Garsin, an ex NYT member who has directed videos for Big Narstie, Naughty Boy and Joe Jonas. Michael and Xaviour previously collaborated with NYT members on Big Narstie’s track ‘They Don't Know’ which Xaviour featured on and Michael directed the video. Check it out:  https://youtu.be/hwD13jf9tUw

The video we are casting for is a found footage horror film that follows a Filmaker filming his night, who after meeting a mysterious girl is lured into a satanic  black mass ritual deep in the forrest...where he is the sacrifice! 

We need an ensemble cast to play the members of the cult at the ritual. All will be in a hood and white mask, so it will be a lot of fun and very scary! Good physical performers will love this, but it will be a great experience for everyone, especially those who haven’t been in a film before! Then next week (date tbd) the same people will need to act in various scenes as the people that pop up during the night and are secretly part of the cult: friends of the girls, people handing out flyers, attendees at a rave etc. That will be a great opportunity to get your face out there, but we expect you to put in the graft in the woods on Saturday to get that opportunity. 

Please contact myself at marissajoycole@gmail.com with a picture of yourself, a CV or just an email with your age and experience.

Can’t wait to hear from all of you!

Film Casting | Silent Together 

Casting for a beautifully shot, naturalistic British indie short film, ‘Silent Together’ intended for festivals. This film is about two teenage brothers and their relationship following a racially motivated incident which leaves one deaf and suffering from PTSD. We are casting the teenage roles and would love for NYT students and alumni to apply if they think suitable. 
 
-       Frankie Williams, 17, Male, black or mixed race ethnicity 
Frankie is the man of the house, the protector of his single mother and younger brother.  Although Frankie has a stern look to him he is quite the joker among his peer group. Clever and witty Frankie stands out in a crowd a noticeable alpha male.  Frankie is a proud person - although he is warm and endearing to friends and family, he can be cold and suspicious to anyone he does not know. His tendency to be protector over Sanchez can be overbearing which Frankie is oblivious to.
 
-       Sanchez Williams, 15, Male, black or mixed race ethnicity 
After the incident Sanchez became withdrawn and lost his love for football, he feels Frankie’s over protectiveness even more now and just wants to get on with his life. Where Sanchez was once an outgoing person, he now has a distorted and cynical outlook on life.  Sanchez shows a clear contrast between the before and after of the incident, and his frustration with Frankie’s over protectiveness. After the incident, Sanchez can not sign fully yet and so we need an actor that has a very strong ability to communicate without words.
 
Shooting in March in London 
Expenses and catering covered
