How to Submit
Choose a role from the list below. Even if you feel you may be a good fit for multiple roles, we ask you only audition once.
Click where it says "Download Sides." You will be provided with the scene for your audition. While it’s not necessary to be off-book, we ask you not to give a cold read.
Choose a well-lit setting, with a plain background. Feel free to have another person off-camera, reading lines with you.
Begin your audition with a “slate.” State your name, age, height and the town you're from, while looking into camera. You should not be in character for the slate. Either hold up a piece of paper with the corresponding information written on it (Name, Age, Height and Town), or superimpose text onto the footage itself. After having slated, please perform your scene.
Submit your audition video via email. You may also attach a headshot, but this is optional. In the subject line, write the character name, followed by your name in parenthesis.
For example, if your name is John Smith, submitting for the role of "James," please write: James (John Smith)
Send your submission to the following email:
We accept files through Google Drive, Dropbox and most other file sharing platforms. Although not preferred, you may submit a YouTube link of your self-tape (please keep the video "unlisted").
If you have been selected for a callback, you will be notified via email. Due to the volume of submissions, we cannot give feedback.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing your submission!
ROLES CURRENTLY CASTING:
[Amelia Huxley] SUPPORTING, FEMALE, early 20’s, shy, cute and intelligent. A member in the college’s tech club. She is compassionate to a fault, and falls head over heels for our main character (though is too shy to let him know). DOWNLOAD SIDES
[March Dunaway] SUPPORTING, MALE, 17-19, headstrong, adventurous and studious. A freshman in University. He lives at home with his parents and commutes to school. Like any ordinary college student, he cares a bit too much of what others think of him. DOWNLOAD SIDES

[Charlotte Tewksbury] SUPPORTING, FEMALE, early 20’s, stunningly beautiful and radiant, she becomes the focus of attention when she walks in the room.
