Submission request: actors who sing

Hi All,

I use PATA religiously when it comes to casting - usually a part of invitations to audition for RTR.  At present I'm helping a friend toss around some casting ideas for a musical, and because that's not my area I thought I'd post here, too. 

Style of singing is much more rock'n'roll/jazz than traditional musical.  As I'm simply helping out and because the actual auditions are not immediate, I don't know about pay, but will post that info when the time is right, of course.

Actor, Male 40’s - 50’s.  A road weary musician.
Actor, Female 40’s - 50’s.  Uber hip and powerful. 
Actor, Male  40’s - 50’s.  The musician's pal since middle school.
Actor, Male  20’s - 30’s.  Streetwise oddball and plastic bucket drummer. 
Actor, Male 40’s - 50’s.  Archetypal SE Portland stoner.
3 actors, Female  20’s - 30’s.  Bright, savvy creative agency assistants.

Note: This request is simply to start the thinking process; auditions are some way off.  No need to follow up once you've submitted your information; it will be kept on file for reference when the producers begin casting the show, and if they're interested, they'll be in touch.

I look forward to hearing from interested and qualified performers.

Casting a black female lead for a comedy web series (paid)

Second attempt at casting for a web series -- joining in the ranks of your mom and your friend's baby, who also have web series -- that follows three friends in their mid-twenties(ish) who are maybe over it, the "it" here casting a wide net on everyday life, and includes their jobs at a nightlife PR firm as well as the people they encounter outside of work. In general I'm looking for someone that can pull off a realistic, discerning human who can also be funny, so actually having zero acting experience may be an asset here. Or maybe that just means you'll be terrible, and in which case will be like "fuuuuuu why did I come out for this." Either way, you should feel comforted in the fact that this will be a short, low-key shoot with legitimate equipment and, amazingly, you will be paid! This will be determined once we can all settle on a shooting schedule that works, but it won't just be $50 and then goodbye.

Send an email with a little about who you are to Do it! It'll be fun. Couple of girls hangin out, makin some vids.
