Casting Call for Kid Actors
Casting two young male actors for the musical, “Project X”. Talent must be in driving distance from Berkley, MI and willing to make a commitment. Rehearsals are typically on Thursdays from 4:00pm to 6:00pm and Saturdays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. We are currently looking at several dates for next year. Try and have an open calendar.
“Project X” is a new musical centering around 4 teenagers entering middle school. Realizing that middle school isn’t just about what it appears to be, they scramble to fit in and lose track of what’s really important. This show tackles difficult subjects such as Popularity, Peer Pressure, Betrayal and Staying True to Yourself. Now, they must make a choice between the Friends they always wanted-or the Friends they’ve always had.
This smash hit musical premiered November 10th to audience approval, and went on to play to 80 people. This is a teen written show. By themselves, these teens have assembled a 9 person cast with 5 original songs with dance, and have been featured in the news several times and have been recognized by Broadway stars. The show has been a great success, with Standing Ovations both nights. From 7 to 70 year olds, “Project X” warms the heart and captures each audience member it encounters. People laugh, cry and applaud at this musical. This show is entirely original.
- Brenton U/S/Male Ensemble: (Lead role) Male, ages 12-15. After being betrayed from his best friend, Brenton is determined to win back Max’s friendship. Although geeky, gets tons of laughs; funny. Needs to be seen as adorable an innocent to the audience – not intimidating. (Must sing and act well and have limited dance ability.)
- Ricky U/S/Male Ensemble: (Lead role) Male, Caucasian, ages 12-16. The cool guy of KBS. Attractive. Think pretty boy. Suave, slick and smooth-Ricky uses Max, the lead, to do stuff for him while he gets enjoyment out of it. Trish, the female lead is in love with Ricky, but the feeling is not mutual. Must be handsome and at least 5-4. (Must sing and act well and have limited dance ability.)
- Male Ensemble: Students and faculty members of ‘K. Bettner.’ Handsome, fresh-faced.
