Auditioning for the podcast

Stories Less Spoken is a podcast featuring short stories from BC writers, read by local performers. We are looking for storytellers who can bring great energy and passion to our project.

We are currently looking for two voices for our seventh episode, set to come out March 15th, 2021.

 

Our first story, Leandra, features a young woman who's confronted by the police after her mother mysteriously disappears and a body is found in her car. Slowly, the truth is unraveled through a series of letters.

 

For this piece, we are seeking performers for a character who is between the ages of 18-35. Though the character identifies as female, we encourage applications from people of all gender identities and background.

Our second story, And Here We Go, is told from the perspective of a young mother as she and her family set out on a road trip across Canada. However, the trip is bittersweet as her husband continues his fight with cancer.

 

For this story, we are seeking performers for a character who is between the ages of 30-50. Again, though the character identifies as female, we encourage applications from people of all gender identities and background.

Stories Less Spoken is dedicated to showcasing performers from all ethnicities, races, genders and gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, classes, religions, national origins, and abilities. We want to create a diverse and inclusive platform for artists and we welcome you to let us know if you identify as part of an underrepresented community.

DEADLINE: March 7th

Thanks for Applying!​

The Rules:

 

Auditions are open to any performer 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 scripts, 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. 

 

We want everyone involved in the production to know how much they are appreciated, and so we are happy to promote you and your work on our social media platforms. We can also provide 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.
