how to apply
First, choose one or more of the stories posted below that you would like to audition for.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Audition and the information below.
Where you live:
Which story (or stories) you would like to read:
Performer bio (between 100-200 words, written in the third person):
Social media handles or website (if you like):
Auditions are open to any performer who is currently living in British Columbia. We aim to capture an authentic performance by recording the stories from start to finish in one sitting. (Performers will read from a script, but we will not be doing any major edits to the final reading).
As a note; we are working towards the larger goal of being able to have a great production where everyone can be compensated for their talents and time, but we just aren’t there yet.
That being said, we want all the people involved in the production to know how much they are appreciated, and so we can offer space on our social media platforms to promote you, credit on IMDB, audio files of everything we do with you, and write references for your performance portfolio.
We are also happy to discuss any other creative ways we can help or work with you.
Auditions for Season Two
The Big Reveal
by Marty Anderson
Richard is sitting down in his bare, government mandated, one room living quarters to watch a reality TV program where his daughter may win a chance to keep the child she is eight months pregnant with.
The Big Reveal is set in a dystopian society where families are only legally allowed to have one child, and people gamble for ‘child tags’ for the possibility of having another, sometimes in order to keep the one they are already carrying… .
The reader for this story should have the dynamic vocal range to be able to jump into the voice of the announcer on television and back to the narration of Richard.
Age range: 40
Ethnicity: Not assigned
This designation is referencing the character in the story, but the audition is open to, and we encourage, people of all gender identities or lack thereof to apply
