Come audition for my show! I am doing a live-radio-drama adaptation of Night of the Living Dead
, and auditions are next Monday and Tuesday (with possible callbacks on Wednesday). Lots more information is on the auditions page
. Descriptions of the available roles (for both shows; see below) are here
, and sides — sample scenes we’ll be using for auditions — will be up soon. Besides “Night of the Living Dead”, Mindy Klenoff is directing “Ghost Hunt”, originally broadcast on Suspense!
in 1949, about a DJ who agrees to spend the night in an allegedly haunted house to prove there are no such things as ghosts. In addition to voice actors, we need Foley (live sound effects) performers, administrative staff (doing things like selling program ads, putting up posters, and collecting sound-effects equipment) and crew.
Live radio drama is not memorized; we perform with scripts in hand, standing on stage with microphones. It’s a great opportunity for beginners and old hands alike; we’ve had some people turn in very impressive performances who had never done any kind of theater before.
(And of course, in a few weeks, I’ll be telling you all to come see
the show! Performances are on several dates from October 24-November 2.)
