Casting Call

We recommend naming the audio file and email subject with your initials and the character(s) you are auditioning for.  e.g. Subject = TA_Elizabeth , file name = TA_Elizabeth.wav or Subject = MD_Riley_Caleb , file name = MD_Riley_Caleb.mp3 .

Email all audition recordings to casting@theaartsz.caAudition cut off date is September 30, 2021.  When recording, state the character’s name before saying the line(s).  Write in the answers to the “About You” questionnaire (found below) in your audition email.  Submissions for multiple characters may be combined into one file.  If you choose to submit separate audio files for each character voice they may all be included in the same email.

For legal reasons, we will require guardian permission for those cast that are under eighteen years of age. Guardians will also be required to co-sign the contract (explained below).

Thank you to all who audition for a part in Stars Align.  There are 13 roles to be cast.  This is for the pilot episode specifically, but please only try out if you are committed to a long term role aspect. Note on scripting cues:  "- -" refers to a poignant break" with a sharp stop, deliberate pause and quick restart while  "…"  refers to a deliberate pause with a softer break and start.  The following are expectations for those cast in the roles:

If trying out for the following roles please be prepared to fully commit yourself for a two season run: Elizabeth, Dakota, Penny, Alfred, Annabella, Caleb and Riley. We do not want to have to recast them, but we do understand emergencies happen.

We will be requiring all those cast in parts, or coming on as helpers in animation to sign a non-disclosure contract.  We know there are people who like to leak things except Thea has worked hard to get to this point. 

It is requested that audition audio recordings be sent in .wav format, but .mp3 will work if that is all that is  available to record in.  We require those hired on to record their parts in as good a quality as possible.

We will be paying those who are cast .10 cents a word. Some roles have under 20 words, and in that case the minimum to earn for the part will be $2.  For those staying on long term, if money comes in through advertising/merchandise sales, the pay will increase.  Thea has made it clear this is not about her making money, she just has a passion for the story and wants to get it out there, but she has incredible respect for those helping her bring the story to life.

All cast members will be required to join a discord group that will be created for the sole purpose of connecting as a group to make this the best possible show experience.  Through this we can do table reads prior to any recordings for the show being done.
