Open Auditions for Web Series Pilot!
Group of Rogues and Happy Harbor Comics are pleased to hold open auditions for principal characters of the STORYHIVE funded web series pilot: Plight: A Comic Book Rock Opera.
We are seeking four (2M, 2F) triple-threat actors: you must be able to act, sing, and fight.
Actors interested in auditioning, please send a Facebook message to Plight: A Comic Book Rock Opera to request a slot. Please attach a headshot and resume. If you have a demo reel, please include link to view.
Sides will be emailed to those selected to audition. Please also prepare 30-40 seconds of a song from a rock musical or rock opera. (There will not be an accompanist provided. You may choose to sing a capella or bring your own music to the audition.)
Auditions will be held during the evenings May 23-25, with possibility of call backs on June 5-6. If there is enough demand, we will hold additional auditions during the following week. Audition location will be provided to those selected to audition.
This is a non-union shoot. There is possibility of honorarium payment (dependent upon funding).
- DANIEL PLIGHT: (Tenor – Male – 25-35) A security guard on the graveyard shift, Daniel feels like a failure because he couldn’t follow in his father’s footsteps and become a cop. After trying to apprehend some petty thieves, he is stabbed through the heart. He is saved from certain death and begins to develop incredible abilities… which turns out to be the worst thing that could have happened to him. Now, to save the world, Daniel must learn the difference between feeling special, and being special.
- MICHELLE STRIKER: (Mezzo Soprano or Contralto – Female – 25-40) A brilliant scientist for Genoflex Industries, Michelle saves Daniel from certain death. With a terrible secret, and hidden abilities of her own, Michelle is obliged to help Daniel navigate his new powers… after all, she never expected him to actually survive.
- AL PLIGHT: (Baritone – Male – 45-55) Daniel’s late father. A former supercop, a Marlboro man gone sour. Al haunts Daniel’s memories and his nightmares. Nothing Daniel can do will be good enough for Al.
- SAMAEL (*updated character* – Contralto preferred, but we’ll review any range – Female – 35-55) Project lead on the Genoflex Research and Weapons division. She seems to have some sort of strange influence over those who work for her, and a penchant for forcing Daniel to undergo horrific and painful procedures.
Principal shooting will take place June 18-20. Actors cast as Daniel and Michelle must be available for fight rehearsals during the week prior (June 11-17).
Deadline to submit is May 23, 2016.
We are committed to diversity in our casting and encourage submissions from all ethnic/cultural backgrounds for auditions.
