Open Casting Call in Alabama for Speaking Roles in Feature Film “White Water”

By | August 29, 2014

Open auditions / casting call is scheduled for this weekend in Opelika Alabama.

The indie feature film ‘White Water‘ will begin filming in Alabama shortly and the film’s producers are now casting for a few speaking roles as well as extras. ‘White Water’ is based on the book of the same name written by Michael S. Bandy and Eric Stein. The story is about segregation in the south during the 60’s.  ‘WHITE WATER‘ is a whimsical tale, based on true events, of a 7 year-old black kid. In 1963 a black boy becomes obsessed with a drinking fountain that is labeled “White’s Only“. The boy sets out to do the unthinkable at the time…. drink for the ‘White’s Only’ fountain to find out if the water tastes like.

The film is casting African American boys between the ages of 7 and 11 as well as Caucasian kids, both boys and girls in the same age group. Also, the film is casting African American men and women ages 40 to 70 and Caucasian folks between the ages of 35 and 70.
