Casting – 6 Voice Actors (3M, 3F) for Unspoken Stories

Casting for 6 actors (3 female identifying and 3 male identifying) for multiple roles in 6 short radio dramas.

THE PROJECT:

Unspoken Stories was a community project delivered at the Marina Theatre as the organisation came out of lock down, and saw community participants write 6 original radio plays with the guidance of a professional storyteller and playwright.

We are now casting for 6 actors to bring these plays to life. Actors need to be versatile and skilled in specific accents (see breakdown for details), as well as creating characters at a range of ages, from a variety of time periods.

Rehearsals and recording will take place over 3 days at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft in late September/early October.

We are particularly interested in hearing from actors based in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Fee = £150 per day, plus travel.

Please submit your CV or Spotlight link, plus links to any show or voice reels to amywyllie@marinatheatre.co.uk along with details of which role you’d like to be considered for.

Deadline for submissions: 13th September 2021 at midday.
