EDGARDO — BOY age 6-9 to play 6. This is a unique & very challenging part for a truly special boy. The story deals w/the complexity of an extremely intelligent & gifted child's situation – his desire to return to his family & the faith of his ancestors, pitted against his ability to learn the Catechism & engage w/the Pope on a level far beyond his years. He should appear to be a Jewish Italian child. We are not looking for any kind of Italian accent. LEAD.
STORY LINE — Steven Spielberg is making a film about the true story of EDGARDO MORTARA - a 6 year old Jewish boy from Bologna who was reported to have been secretly baptized by a maid & was deemed by the Catholic church therefore to be Christian. Pope Pius IX (to be played by Mark Rylance) decreed that the boy could not remain w/his Jewish family. He was seized by the Papal State & taken to the Vatican where his indoctrination into Catholicism began. This was a cause célèbre of mid-nineteenth century European politics & the domestic & international outrage against the pontifical state's actions may have contributed to its downfall amid the unification of Italy. This is an incredible story of real historical relevance.

Make a Scene is a new program to help actors gain more experience working in front of a camera in customizable scenes which can be used to help fill in an acting reel. The process starts with the creation of an original up to two minute scene by the resident screenwriter, the actor can give input into the genre and what kind of character they’d like to be. Then eventually on a scheduled date the filming will take place and then the project will be edited and sent to the actor digitally for reel building or even to put on YouTube.
