seeking one male actor for two readings of one new musical in February

Dear Portlanders,

We seek one male actor to participate in two readings of a new musical. The two readings are very soon after, but not actually a part of, Fertile Ground. The musical is called Carnies, and you can read more about it here: The role is Danny, the carnival ladykiller; he is confident and happy-go-lucky, and enjoys simple pleasures. Generally, the vocal range of Danny's songs would be described as Baritone, and more specifically, the lowest note is A2 and the highest is F4. But songs (of which there are three solos and two other large solo chunks) can be transposed to fit the voice. The most important quality of the character is charm.

The readings are on two Tuesdays in February, both at 7:30pm. The first is on February 1st, at Theater!Theatre! (in southeast Portland). The second is at the Broadway Rose Theatre New Stage (in Tigard). In addition, there are three rehearsals already scheduled, on the last three Mondays of January (the 17th, 24th, and 31st), from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. The rehearsals, too, will be in southeast Portland. It is, unfortunately, rather important that the actor playing Danny be available for all three rehearsals, although not necessarily for each entirety.

Furthermore, the readings are being produced by Action/Adventure Theatre – A/A will pay each actor a $100 stipend.

Thank you very much!

Pre-casting with table read for feature (Vancouver/PDX)

Looking to round out the wonderful talent already on board to join me for a table read of my feature length script. I have completed 4 short films as a director /writer - the two most recent films I also did all of the editing and post production as well. This is a much bigger project and there have not been shoot dates set, this is still in the pre-planning stage. I am looking to fine tune the script and there is no better way than to hear it out loud. Below are the IMDb links to the two shorts I did last year where I did EVERYTHING on them. THE SALON - a slice of life comedy, was accepted and shown at The Columbia Gorge International Film Festival and THE GRADE - a drama, was just finished last month and is currently being submitted to festivals.

The Grade ---

The Salon ---

The full movie video link is on the right hand sides.

This new feature I have been writing since July of last year - it has some personal experiences in it, however it is a fictional story. The roles I am looking to pre-cast (meaning the person I choose to attend the read will already have a leg in for being cast in the role) are listed below the film synopsis. The read will most likely happen on a Sun afternoon at my home in Vancouver, possibly Feb 6th. There will not be auditions for the read, I will choose talent from resumes, headshots and preferably demo reels or links to your previous work. This is an ensemble piece all roles are pretty much principal parts.
