OPEN CASTING CALL

Dayton Writers Movement is accepting audition recordings for our third season of The Hidden People. The show is an audio drama with a large cast and a modern fantasy story that includes comedy, drama, and action. Season 1 launched in 2019, and season 2 will launch in 2020.


Season 3 will rehearse and record in late May - September 2020. These dates are subject to change based on the pandemic, but we are planning with the hope that we can safely record the show; if the situation is such that we cannot record this summer, we will seek to record season 3 at the earliest safe time. In that event, we will endeavor to keep everyone cast for this summer, schedules permitting.


To audition, you must be 18 or older with availability for rehearsals and recordings taking place in the Dayton, Ohio area. All roles are unpaid.


Audition recordings are due by end of day Sunday, April 19, 2020.


We are auditioning for a variety of roles with varying levels of commitment. We have put tentative rehearsal and recording dates with many of the roles. Again, these dates are subject to change based on the pandemic and other factors.

We are completing auditions digitally. Please do the following:

  • Record your audition as an .mp3 or .wav or another file easily accessible (if you have an iPhone you can record right in “Voice Memos”).

  • Email Dayton Writers Movement at daytonwritersmovement@gmail.com with:

    • your audition file(s); you may audition for more than one role

    • your availability; please note what weekday evenings and weekends you are generally available along with any known conflicts throughout 2020


Below are character descriptions with dialogue for a variety of characters. 


Ages listed in character descriptions are just the characters’ ages; as long as you sound like the character’s age, you don’t need to actually be that age.


Thank you, and good luck!


FAQs:


Q: Can I audition for multiple characters?


A: Yes. Please do! Submit auditions for any part you are interested in!


Q: Can I submit multiple takes for the same role?


A: If the takes are significantly different in tone, voice, approach, etc., it's completely fine to submit more than one take. If each is essentially the same with perhaps minor phrasing changes, please just choose your strongest take.
