Casting Call for Leeds Young Actors

My name is Alexandra, I am writing to you from University of the Arts London BA Film and Television. I am the Casting director for a short student film “A Mother’s Touch”.

We will be casting during the period of the next month and are looking to collaborate with some of your groups. The projects are non-equity and the cast payment only covers expenses. If any of your groups would be interested, please ask them to contact me and we will gladly forward more details.

Here are the character breakdowns and a brief synopsis of the project.

“A Mother’s Touch” is a 10-minute short film, which follows a journey of a young man as he tries to come to terms with his mother’s recent passing.

Rough dates:
5/6 days between 29th (March) - 8th April

- £60 per day for Chris, expenses only for the chaperone/parent.
- Exprences for all other roles


Chris, 15, is small for his age and frustrated with his lack of development, this leads him to reject his parents in an attempt to fast track himself to manhood. However, once his mother abruptly passes away, Chris must first come to terms with this and accept the new structure of the family before he can mature. We require a lead actor that possesses very youthful features and is able to speak in a Yorkshire accent.
Male (playing age: 12-17) from United Kingdom
Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles - Previous paid speaking roles


Luke, an 18 year old man from Leeds
Luke attempts to take care of the rest of the family in the mother’s absence and throughout the father’s grief. Whilst he struggles to cooperate with Chris, a conflict grows between them, which eventually results in a large clash once Chris returns Luke’s ID after visiting a club, underage. We require an actor who can perform speaking in a Yorkshire accent.
Males, aged 18 to 25 from United Kingdom
Minimum Acting experience: Extra

Mother, a 45 year old woman from Leeds
The mother is shown through several past scenes within the film, which show the relationship she and Chris shared. The mother is understanding and gentle but whilst she is someone that helped keep the family together, she was also the main bread winner. The actor must be able to speak in a Yorkshire accent.
Females, aged 35 to 55 from United Kingdom
Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles - Previous paid speaking roles

Father, a 50 year old man from Leeds
The father is grief stricken for the entirety of the story and is largely cared for by Luke. Towards the end of the film, Chris returns home and the two build a connection which they had struggled to form even before the mother’s death. This is a non speaking role, however, the emotions character are protrayed through body language in several scenes, especially with scenes interacting with Chris and Luke.
Males, aged 40 to 60 from United Kingdom
Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Kind regards,

Alexandra Malanicheva
Casting Director

I'm looking to recruit some actors to help me with an art project I am working on.

I am Leeds based artist, currently studying at LAU. My Practice is multimedia where I am presently tackling the crisis within masculinity at the moment.

I have been working on some spoken word pieces, which I am looking to develop with the help of some performers and hopefully move into a live performance piece.

Jimmy Carr

My name is Nick from CPL Productions; a TV production company based in London.

We are currently producing a brand new TV comedy run through with comedian Jimmy Carr and I thought I would get in touch to see if this is something anyone from any Merseyside Drama Group would be interested in taking part in?

The show will see award-winning comedian Jimmy Carr joined by celebrity guests before handing responsibility over to you, to ask the guests anything you like. No question is off-limit.

We are looking for people who can really speak their mind, people who would really enjoy chatting to celebrities and those who are unafraid to ask quite personal questions. We would love for some comedians to come along and ask Jimmy and his guests a question, in what is sure to be a fun evening of comedy.

The show is a non-broadcast run through, meaning it won’t be aired on television this time, but if it becomes a series we may well get back in touch with you to be involved again.

Please follow this link www.shortaudition.com/public-inquiry to apply.

1916: The Red-Letter Play

1916: The Red-Letter Play

Auditions (short Easter Rising play)

I am putting on a play written from the Easter Rising finale of my second Suitcases magic history adventure book, The Red-Letter Day.

1916: The Red-Letter Play
It will be staged on Easter Monday next, April 2nd 2018, at 3pm at Naomh Barrog GAA Club in Kilbarrack. It's been on there twice before.
It lasts about 40 minutes without an interval.
There are details and reviews about last year's performance on www.spmcardle.com

Please like my Facebook page and share the post about this play, that would be fantastic.


The plot:
After Jenny the Adventuress introduces her fantastic time-travelling journeys, the action whizzes back to 1916 – from Kilmainham Gaol to Dublin Castle, and then to a nail-biting finale in the GPO, with lots of Dublin landmarks in between. Can Jenny and her guide, O’Flahertie (who might just be a famous writer!), save the day for Constance Markievicz, Padraig Pearse… and the historic Proclamation of the Irish Republic?

Actors needed:
* Jenny the Adventuress - she is 15 or 16 in the book;
* O'Flahertie - a young Oscar Wilde starting Trinity (he was 17 or 18 in real life when he did this). O'Flahertie also briefly plays a cranky printer of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic;
* Padraig Pearse (he was 36 in 1916 but there is flexibility given the context of it being a magical play - although best if he looks a bit older than Jenny and O'Flahertie);
* Constance Markievicz (she was 49 in 1916 but the same flexibility applies).

There is very little scenery needed as the backdrop is done by PowerPoint and some of these slides ask the audience to participate, which worked very well last time.

Anyone interested in acting, producing, directing or helping out in any other way please contact me?

Many, many thanks,

Síle/SP 087-2224060

Casting Call: Extras needed for filming 12th Feb

Hello,

I am writing from The Moment Content Company as we have an upcoming shoot on Monday 12th February in North West London that we are currently looking to cast extras for. We were wondering whether you know of anyone who would be interested in taking part?

We are looking for extras to make up a football crowd for our commercial piece which is being shot for a well-known brand. Usage on the film is still being confirmed but it is likely that the film will sit online and also appear in print media too.

If anyone is interested in taking part, please do send me an email.

Thanks,

In a Land of Oz

In a Land of Oz

Actresses Needed for Play in Walthamstow

My name is Jessica and I am setting up an drama society in Leytonstone for my production, In a Land of Oz which will be performed on the 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th of May 2018 in Ye Olde Rose and Crown in Walthamstow.

I am basically calling out for actresses to play the roles attached: Scenes with Amber & Chris
Scenes with young Dorothy

"In a Land of Oz" Dorothy, a woman in her early 30s from San Diego who goes to her mother's house and has received a bag of her stuff from high school which fills her mind with bad memories.

She has autistic traits but was not diagnosed with autism because the resources were not provided to her parents when she was in school. The majority of the play takes place in her bedroom where she is confronted by her younger self and two characters from her favourite book ‘The Wizard of Oz’. When Dorothy is able to accept that she has issues the setting changes to a black set where she finally discusses her issue with a psychologist and also when she speaks to a past classmate who has autism.

The play focuses on her issues with the therapy sessions she had with her psychologist as an adolescent, her relationship with her boyfriend, Chris and her own insecurities.
