Ft Hood Suicide Prevention Show Seeks Two Male Actors
WILL Interactive is currently looking for 2 male actors between the ages of 20 and 35 years old to be considered understudies for our theatrical programs at Fort Hood.
WILL Interactive is a 15 year old company in Potomac, Maryland that creates interactive immersive video experiences on ethical decision making for a lot of clients, but our biggest is the Army. Five years ago The Army asked us to create a program dealing with Suicide Prevention. That film, "Beyond the Front", has now been seen by the entire Army. It has been used in all of the Army's programing on Suicide Prevention.
Three years ago Fort Hood asked us to create a live stage version of that program for their post. We created LIFELINES, an Interactive live experience for the Soldiers at Fort Hood. It is performed once a week, and has been going on for 3 years. This past summer they asked us to create a partner program dealing with Domestic Violence Prevention, called HOMETEAM. This program is also performed once a week, and will continue through the end of September 2013.
The 2 shows are performed with the same 4 actors (2 male and 2 female). We also have 4 understudies for this program (2 male and 2 Female). We are currently looking for new understudies for these programs. It is a "paid if you perform" position, with paid rehearsals. You are guaranteed 1 performance every 3 months.
Performers must fit military height/weight standards (click to view standards), must be willing to cut their hair, have a clean shaven face, and must have a flexible day job schedule as understudies may be called up with 24 hours notice or less to perform. An ability to quickly memorize lines and think on your feet a must.
If you are interested in the program please email Casting@willinteractive.com with your Headshot and Resume.
