This audition session is hosted at the Theatre Royal Plymouth training and education centre, at Cattedown, not at the Theatre Royal building on Royal Parade.
Please contact us to let us know to expect you.
If you have already been cast, you do not need to attend this.
We are also interested in hearing from anyone who would be interested in joining us as film crew, please drop us a line.
Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well.
This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo’s UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible.
Due to the nature of crowdfunding we are hoping to be able to pay our performers, but this depends entirely on funds raised, and may alter episode by episode as the series gets more well known, but at the minimum, once you have been cast as a character in the series, your expenses will be covered.
Depending on what character you wish to audition for, and are cast as you may be required for several episodes (or indeed all of them), or simply one.
HOW TO AUDITION:
Please contact us with a photograph, and a few words about the kind of role you are looking for. We will send you an audition pack and audition pieces suitable for your appearance. Please note that you do not need to learn the parts, just familiarise yourself with them.
At the auditions, you will be asked to perform the piece on video camera, as a screen test. We will be looking at your characterization, focus, and the realism of your portrayal of the character. We also will be looking at how you take direction, and interact with other people.
There are several child roles, but all children MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
Please be aware that we cannot accept auditions or applications via email or video. In order to be considered for a role, you need to attend in person.
