Actors: 10am to 12pm -- Writers: 1pm to 3pm
The Brand New Theatre Company 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 of the week before and add a 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 25 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Please bring a five-page writing sample (we would be thrilled if you emailed it ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org). The interview/audition will consist of group discussions and devising exercises led by the podcast’s director/script supervisor.
Actors: Auditions Saturday, February 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The audition will consist of cold readings and improvisation exercises. Some actors may be called back for a follow-up audition which will involve interaction with writers from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. (If you would like to send your resume ahead of time, please email it to email@example.com.)
