Hello! We have a last-minute acting opportunity that might be of interest to some of you. I am a casting agent with Theatre Nerds specializing in improv shows, particularly murder mystery dinners. We are contracted through Neon Entertainment, one of the leading entertainment booking agencies in the industry. I have received a request from one of their booking agents to cast a mystery this Tuesday, August 20. The event is scheduled for 6pm-9pm in Long Island, NY. We are seeking one female and three males, of various ages, for this paid job. The roles require minor preparation, and the event promises to be a lot of fun. Compensation is highly competitive (AEA members encouraged!), with additional consideration for travel expenses. Dinner is also provided. Also, we have quite a few future murder mysteries scheduled that any actor who is cast will be added to our company roster of actors, and thus be considered for future paid work.
Improv skills are, obviously, a huge plus for this type of performance, but the most important thing is personality. Being open, engaging others in conversation, being quick on your feet, and the ability to be BIG are key.
If this is something of interest to you, I can be reached anytime at [email protected] or 717-364-0650. Please feel free to share this with anyone you think would be a good fit, as well.
