Casting Call For Short Film

I’m casting for a short film, shooting in Bournemouth, and we are looking to fill several roles.

If you know of any actors who fit the following criteria and could pass on the information we would really appreciate it.

We are looking for actors to fill the following parts:
- Bobby: 18 - 21 year old Chinese Male
- Chen Jun: 40 - 60 year old Chinese Male
- Chen Li: 40 - 60 year old Chinese Female
- Doris: 40 - 50 year old British Female (ethnicity ambiguous)
- Beatrice: 40 - 50 year old British Female (ethnicity ambiguous)
- Andrew: 30 - 45 year old British Male (White British)

A brief synopsis of the film: 29th of July 1966, 14 year old Bobby is training to work at his family owned hairdressers. He cuts his fathers hair haphazardly, whilst being lectured about the ideals of his Chinese heritage, and how he must carry on his family legacy as a barber. Set in the backdrop of the World Cup Final and the rise of the Red Guards under Mao’s China, Bobby feels trapped between the trends of East and West, feeling confused as to whether he belongs. He attempts to find a culture that he can subscribe to without being influenced by his parents beliefs. We will be shooting in Bournemouth. The roles are unpaid however we will be able to cover the costs of transport, accommodation, and food throughout the filming period. The shoot dates are the 15/16/17th April 2019.

If anyone is interested then please contact us on 1700127@my.aub.ac.uk 07380333958 / 07498116797

Kind Regards,

Alex Howat

The Little Mermaid

A full length play suitable for youth groups to perform.

A large cast with opportunities for doubling in necessary.

Based on the much-loved tale by Hans Christian Anderson this play tells the story of Pearl, a mermaid who lives in the underwater kingdom with her father King Poseidon, her mother Queen Amphitrite and all her sisters. The younger mermaids are taught by school mistress Mrs Krill and Charles the lobster is in charge of party planning for Pearl's birthday. Pearl is now old enough to swim to the surface and see humans for the first time. Once she gets to the surface she sees Prince Stefan and it is love at first sight. She stays too long and her father, angered by her disobedience, whips up a storm which results in Stefan and his crew crashing onto the shores of the Kingdom of Durdle Dor. Pearl saves him from drowning but he is discovered and nursed back to health by Queen Cristabel. Pearl seeks the help of the Sea Witch Drusilla and her side-kick sharks, Fankie and Tony. In return for helping Pearl walk on land, Drusilla demands that Pearl gives her her voice. Once on land Pearl is rescued by Stefan but is unable to tell him how she feels and with the return of Queen Cristabel it appears that all is lost but with the help of her friends and sisters, the evil Drusilla is overcome and all live happily ever after.

Never Trust a Man Bun by Katherine Thomas

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

19 March 2019

Venue: Stockwell Playhouse

The brilliant writing, pathos, humour and heartache poured into this extremely well cast and performed 70-minute play is worth taking a trip to see. The stage is dressed with a sofa and a few pieces of functional furniture and a washing airer complete with washing all in keeping with a flat share.

Good friends from school Lucy and Gus now flatshare, who are pictured above. His ex who is now his current girlfriend Rachael upsets Lucy’s plans of a quiet night in to drink wine and watch Gogglebox. As Unbeknown to Lucy, Caps turns up at the flat on the request of Rachael to be part of a double date. Leading to some very unpleasant revelations and awkward moments as they all attempt to socialise.

Lucy played by the scriptwriter Katherine Thomas is sarcastic, blunt and very direct. During some of her one-liners its hard not to wince as she rips into the other three with cutting quips. Especially the “thick as shit Girlfriend ” Rachael. Who in many ways brings it upon herself with her unthought-out comments and unintelligent remarks. The raw honesty in Lucy’s part is for me refreshing.

Now enter the jealous double dater Caps and in keeping with the title of the play you really “…can’t trust a man bun”. He manipulates and divides the group to win back Rachael and in the process destroying the long-standing friendship between Gus and Lucy. While still managing to play the role of the hard done by the victim who mentions endlessly that he looks after his autistic sister for one hour a day.

Gus the kind and caring but quite naive and unsuspecting boyfriend realises that Rachael is not who he thought she was, as Caps flurts with her and lets the secrets slip on purpose. The innocent blonde who is so extremely nice certainly has a few uncomfortable skeletons lurking in the past. One of which is her past relationship with Caps.

Like Lucy, the play is very honest and blunt. The gasps in the audience behind me when the old flames share a late night kiss highlight the emotions that were provoked by this brilliant writing.

As with many modern plays, we are not witnessing a happy ever after or cheerful resolution. In life, some things are best left and this play finishes leaving me to believe that nothing else needed to be said or done at that point.

Thomas has clearly studied a lot of people around her and many I dare say were possibly her peers. As each character could easily be identified as someone you could have met, known and then more than likely disliked.

Four stars

***Actors Wanted***
Steinbeck's own version of this classic novel tells the story of George and Lenny, the fast talking farmhand and the simple giant who accompanies him on a life of casual labour in the California agricultural belt in the 1930s. They share a dream of a little place of their own where Lenny can tend the rabbits and they can "live off the fat of the land "But when Lenny unwittingly kills the young wife of a farm owners son , George must shatter their dreams , to keep Lenny from falling into the hands of the law.

This is an exciting and compelling story , if you are at all interested in helping me bring these amazing characters to life we would love to see you . We are reading through the play this Wednesday the 20th of March and auditions will be on Monday April 1st . We plan to present this play in October , dates to be agreed .
There are 9 male parts of varying ages
And 1 female role aged around 18 to 35
Hoping to see as many of you there as possible

Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society

Press release- ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’

This Christmas Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society are celebrating 50 years of Copythorne pantomimes with a production of ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’. In 1968 the local British Legion put on a panto to raise funds. It proved so popular that it became an annual event. In 1995 CATS was formed to continue the tradition when the Royal British Legion changed their fundraising rules. Over the years, hundreds of local people have been involved with the shows and thousands of pounds have been raised for charity.

This year’s show has been specially written to mark the occasion and includes all the characters you’d expect, plus quite a few that might surprise you, including some panto ghosts.

Robin Hood has returned from the Crusades to find that the people of Nottingham are in desperate need of help. The wicked Sheriff of Nottingham keeps taking their money in taxes and burning down their houses. Things get even worse when Prince John demands even more money and the Sheriff decides to get rid of his two young wards and marry Maid Marian so that he can get his hands on their lands.

Can Robin rescue the Babes and Marian and defeat the Sheriff? Maybe. With the help of his merry men (and women) and, of course, Nurse Nora, the dame, who knows everything there is to know about the soldiers in the castle, including the bungling Private Eye and Private Parts. A true village panto with plenty of songs, swash buckling and audience participation. The show also features dancers from the Jo Hyne School of Dance, who will bring some magic to Sherwood and a bit of Rock n Roll to Nottingham Castle.


Performances are: Saturday 24th November at 7.30
Sunday 25th November at 2.30
Saturday 1st December at 7.30
Sunday 2nd December at 2.30
At Copythorne Parish Hall, Pollards Moor Road, S04 2NZ
Tickets: Adults £8, under 16s £5, Family Ticket (2 adults and 2 children) £22
Available from Bartley Post Office, Landford Stores and Bramshaw Village Stores or by phoning our box office 02380 813415
