Writers/Actors Needed for Radio Serial Style Podcast

Post by Brand New Theatre Co. »

The Brand New Theatre Co. Presents

“The Saturday Morning Serial Podcast"
Interviews/Auditions for Writers and Actors Saturday, Feb. 25th
At the BNTC North Austin Studio, 8701 W. Parmer Ln. #1122

BNTC is in the early phases of developing a radio serial that will be distributed as a podcast (and potentially expanded into a web series). The concept of the serial is to feature different Austin based talent each week. Each episode will be written by a different writer but will feature the same cast of actors. Every week, the new writer will build on the script that was produced the week before and add their own personal twist to the plot. Each new episode will also feature a different guest musician. Script writing will begin in March and live recordings will begin in April.

Writers
Interviews/Auditions Saturday, February 25th from 1pm to 3pm.
Please bring a five-page writing sample (we would be thrilled if you emailed it ahead of time to brandnewtheatre@live.com). The interview/audition will consist of group discussions and devising exercises lead by the podcast’s director/script supervisor.

Actors
Auditions Saturday, February 25th from 10am to 12pm.
The audition will consist of cold-reading and improvisation exercises.
Some actors may be called back for a follow-up audition which will involve interaction with writers from 1pm to 3pm. (If you would like to send your resume ahead of time, please email it to brandnewtheatre@live.com.)

Musicians
If you would like to be considered for inclusion in the musician pool please email your contact information to brandnewtheatre@live.com with the words “Radio Serial Musician Pool” in the subject line.

You never want to endanger your actors, for two reasons:
      1. it's not nice,
      2. it will slow you down.

Ooh, looks like they're auditioning actors for a bunch more parts tonight at 7pm.  (This is what happens when a producer lets me run rampant with adding secondary characters.)  I'm sure interested folks can contact Kara Saunders at brandnewtheatre@live.com for complete info.
