Actors and Voice Actors needed for ArtStreet installation project

Actors and Voice Actors needed: Multiple roles, men and women ages 14-89

We are artists working on an installation project for ArtStreet by M5 Arts, the art collective that brought Art Hotel to Sacramento. Our project includes audio recordings of several short scenes of dialogue (3-10min) and we are looking for voice actors to portray these roles. We are planning to record the scenes during the third week of January.

We are looking for actors of all types and ages, who want to have fun and engage with these roles and with the interactions between different type of characters. We have scenes that range from contemplative to silly to dramatic and our ideal actors will really bring their own unique style and interpretation to the scene.

If you are interested in working with us send us an email with:

a short introduction/bio
your availability for the third week of January (including the weekend)
A recording of:
A monologue from a modern work as all of the scripts fall under realism; or
If you’re interested in auditioning for a specific role, email us and we will send you the script for that scene. Whichever option you choose, the recording does not have to be pristine; one from your phone or computer should be just fine.
