Keywords: acting, theatre company

These auditions are for the following named male characters only. (L indicates a large role appearing over more than one episode. ) Please be aware that you need to attend the audition in person. You may email in advance for audition pieces. Félix Tholomyès Gavroche L Inspector Javert L Fauchelevent L Bamatabois Mestienne Gribier Colonel Georges Pontmercy Montparnasse Claquesous Gueulemer Babet Combeferre L Jehan Prouvaire L Bahoral L Joly L Bossuet L Marius L Young Valjean Auditions per person will last around 10 - 15 minutes, where you will be expected to read a familiarised script piece. We will be looking for characterization, mannerisms, and the ability to take direction. Marius, Combeferre, and Javert will also be required to take part in filming for the funding trailer, with short scenes, at the end of this (2014-15) winter. Project website: http://lesmiserablesfilm.weebly.com/ Project email: [email protected] Audition venue address: Chestnut Community Centre, 1-3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA A note from Laura (producer) Ric and I are still sorting precise castings for the people who came to Les Mis auditions at the Theatre Royals TR2 studios. However, we are definite that the above male roles still need to be filled as we didn't find the ideal fit. If you have already auditioned, then you do not need to attend this audition. ____________________________________________ Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well. This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo's UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible. Due to the nature of crowdfunding we are hoping to be able to pay our performers, but this depends entirely on funds raised, and may alter episode by episode as the series gets more well known, but at the minimum, once you have been cast as a character in the series, your expenses will be covered. Depending on what character you wish to audition for, and are cast as you may be required for several episodes (or indeed all of them), or simply one. HOW TO AUDITION: Please contact us with a photograph, and a few words about the kind of role you are looking for. We will send you an audition pack and audition pieces suitable for your appearance. Please note that you do not need to learn the parts, just familiarise yourself with them. At the auditions, you will be asked to perform the piece on video camera, as a screen test. We will be looking at your characterization, focus, and the realism of your portrayal of the character. We also will be looking at how you take direction, and interact with other people. There are several child roles, but all children MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Please be aware that we cannot accept auditions or applications via email or video. In order to be considered for a role, you need to attend in person. THERE IS NO FEE REQUIRED FOR YOU TO AUDITION OR BE INVOLVED IN ANY WAY, THIS IS A GENUINE PROJECT NOT A SCAM. ************************************************************* USEFUL LINKS: - Read Victor Hugo's unabridged novel online (or get the free ebook) http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/135 (you will probably want to do this if you get in, anyway. - Our film project website (being updated): http://lesmiserablesfilm.weebly.com/ - The film facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/lesmiswebseries - What we expect of performers: http://lesmiserablesfilm.weebly.com/get-involved.html - List of characters being cast for: http://lesmiserablesfilm.weebly.com/casting.html - Our main theatre company website: http://www.southdevonplayers.com/ - The South Devon Players facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/sdevonplayers
