Casting call: Project - Play Trailer
We are looking for 2 or 4 actors to produce a trailer for a play written by a Twin Cities Author: E.M. Moore. Playwright: ‘Choices’
On Screen Speaking and V.O. for both Male and Female Voices
Roles: We are open to casting either 1 actor to portray both young and old characters or 1 actor each. All submissions welcome. Paid roles.
OLD JIM: Lead Character 77 year old African American man, Ronnie’s former lover
OLD RONNIE: Lead Character 77 year old white woman Jim’s former lover
YOUNG JIM: Young African American man 18-20 old Ronnie’s lover
YOUNG RONNIE Young white girl 18-20 years old, Jim’s lover
Jim is handsome, talented and a mini celebrity. He comes from a self defined middle class neighborhood. His father is a janitor and his mother a housekeeper.
Ronnie is pretty, smart, and is the daughter of a highly educated set of parents who are benefactors of the community.
Jim is Catholic, Ronnie is Jewish. They meet in a high school that is in the center of a midwestern big city in the late 50’s. What could go wrong does, and problems become disasters. Teaching them both something about life, but way too late to make a difference in the lives of people who bear the burden of their mistakes. And so it is that we discover how the expression “past is prologue” can play out in life, in ways we might not have imagined.

Title: The Count of Monte Cristo
Shoot Dates: September - October 2021, based on actor’s schedules (see below)
Pay: $125/day, non-union
Shooting Location: Saint Paul, MN
Roles: 33 roles, character breakdownHERE.
About the Project: An webseries adaptation of the novel by Alexandre Dumas. Approximately 100 episodes, each 5-7 minutes long. It's a story of revenge, with complex (and sometimes convoluted) plots and deceits, with one or two high-melodrama love stories thrown in.
Because this project was designed during the summer of 2020, we will be shooting most scenes with only one actor at a time - a sort of “Zoom Theater” approach. Each day of shooting will be focused on filming one character with a crew member off-camera assisting as scene partner for the actor. The number of days we estimate needing each actor is noted on the character breakdown.
To be considered for a role, please record yourself, on camera, readingTHIS excerpt from the script or your own monologue (classical if possible), and share it to us with your availability and which roles you are interested in usingTHIS form. If you cannot record yourself for any reason, please email us using the address above and we will find alternative methods! Please submit your recording by August 6, 2021. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some notes on casting: All roles are available. All characters in our breakdown are of not-yet-defined race and ethnicity; preference in casting will be given to creating a diverse world of characters portrayed by a diverse cast of performers, especially for major parts. The same applies to body type/physical ability. While some characters have assigned genders, or ages, anyone who feels they could play those characters are encouraged to audition for them.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

My name is Tony Nayenga and I wrote the book My American Dream using my pen name Nekemiah Muzazibwa. My book in online and I have had several book signings with very good feedback. This story chronicles my life from a Civil War inUganda 1977 to a life in the U.S. with my family. I explain the trials and tribulations I/we encountered with many success until I was diagnosed with mul sclerosis which I dealt with in denial.(as it is taboo in my culture). Also, there is a love story detailed with a hirl I didn’t know from Ghana which led to the birth of my 2 children. But my dream with my children has become redefined as MS is a taboo among my people as I was getting very sick. I am in the process of converting this book to a short film and next a feature film, hopefully. If any producers can contact me I’d appreciate it! Thank you.
