A Mother’s Love’ Casting

A Mother’s Love’ Casting

A Mother’s Love is a social realist short drama. It focuses on Linda, a 56-year-old single mother to her troubled 22-year-old son Johnny. She is shocked to find Johnny has been involved with a major drug scandal and now has to deal with both the police and his boss. How far would a mother go to protect her child?

Roles needed:
Linda- (50s) is a working class single mother. She is a born and bred, Yorkshire woman. She is strong-willed and smart witted but ultimately a dedicated mother to her son Johnny.

Johnny- (18-25) is the son of Linda. A Yorkshire lad who has a knack for getting in trouble. In finding out he is to be a father, he gets involved with drugs for money. However, he soon realises he’s in too deep.

It is a student film so it is unpaid but food and travel (within reason) are covered and a copy of the film will be available to you.

Auditions for ONCE The musical

Auditions for ONCE The musical

Auditions for ONCE The musical (CARDIFF – MILLENNIUM CENTRE)

The role will be shared by two children at each venue. They MUST live in very easy travelling distance of the venue – definitely no more than 40 minutes travelling door to door.

Based on the critically acclaimed and much-loved film, Once tells the uplifting yet yearning story of two lost souls – a Dublin street busker and a Czech musician – who unexpectedly fall in love. Following their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways. Celebrated for its original folk score including the Academy Award-winning song Falling Slowly, Once is a spell-binding and uplifting story of hopes and dreams.

We are only looking for the following children’s role:

The child of the lead character, this is a small non-speaking but important role in the musical. She’s five years old in the story, but realistically we are probably looking for a small 7 or 8 year old to play the role. She should look Eastern European/Czech, probably with dark or dark blonde hair, dark eyes.
She needs to be confident and secure enough to walk onstage on her own for the first encounter, and comfortable with being lifted up by the Andrej actor in the dance and by the Baruska actress for the night time scene, in which she needs to be still enough to appear sound asleep (no fidgeting allowed!) She may be in an additional moment in the second half during another song.

She is a professional consultant/speaker/trainer and has worked with the InterContinental hotel group in Lyon on several launches and corporate events, so knows the Hotel well, and gets on very well with the staff. She’s always dressed effortlessly elegantly and exudes a charm and charisma that belies her business-savvy mind and laser focus on detail. She’s married and has one son, who is at college. She is bilingual and also does competitive running to a high-level.

OSCAR: between 28 to 36 years old BritishOscar is in his early 30’s, a British assistant manager from within the InterContinental Hotel group and has been seconded to the Hotel Dieu to earn his stripes under the watchful eye of his mentor, the manager of the Hotel.

Non Speaking Roles

ANNA: Violinist Asian Woman 28 to 36 years old Anna is from China, single, and has trained her whole life to become a sought-after soloist for recitals all around the world. She travels regularly and prizes the attention to detail that a hotel can give her to make her stay all the more relaxing. Because of the pressure of her performance schedule, she values efficiency in getting her needs met, as well as the ability to have special moments to relax and prepare. For the scenario in this film, she is about to perform a new contemporary piece that has been composed specially for her. She had gone out at night to seek some fresh air and inspiration, but got lost. Her innate perfectionism makes her momentarily lose her composure, which the hotel so elegantly rises to the occasion to alleviate.

He prizes discretion and enjoys the relative peace and quiet his hotels of choice offer him when he’s travelling for work. He works across time zones, so works long hours, and expectshotelstoalsoofferthisserviceparticularlyforhisbusinessandadministrationneeds. Heonly occasionally brings his son with him on a work trip, when he’s sure that the itinerary offers him some time to spend one-on-one. However, as he’s travelling a lot he misses his son and is trying to get to know him better. He prizes family as one of life’s greatest assets.
