Two Female Actors 20’s - Profit Share Project
Two female actors 20’s interested in performing and helping to develop a new multi platform project with our theatre company, Walking Into Bars
Two young women have teamed up to run both a courier delivery service and a web TV series from Bea’s big van. Their lives are both individually and collectively full of adventure even outside their Web TV and (ultimately) travelling stage shows.
The girls are storytellers and sometimes their stories, although fictional and often outrageous, can reflect truths from their lives. Apart from your main character you’ll also sometimes get to play other characters of various ages, backgrounds and of either sex, in their stories.
Most of the content will be filmed for either the web series or film, but we’ll also be working toward stage touring as well.
It's our intention to film one of their van adventures as a short for Tropfest.
Whilst still in it’s developmental stage, there has been considerable ground work already undertaken. Much of the gear – from the van and projector to the film and sound equipment has already been purchased. Although I’ve written this piece and a number of the other parts of the story we’re also inviting contributions from our other favourite writers.
It’s a very ambitious project and needs two energetic, creative and highly proactive actors. They need to believe in themselves and their ability to sell a diverse range of characters. A preparedness to help run and MC live events and assist practically in the interview and documentary aspects of their world will be highly regarded.
We’ll be testing one of the girls’ stories as a Melbourne Short and Sweet Theatre Wildcards on Sat. Nov 5th at Chapel off Chapel (although we’ll film it separately for the web series as well). So availability to rehearse for and perform in that would be essential. Rehearsals will start early October.
We’d love to cast for that as soon as we can – so please contact us with your interest asap.
Auditions Sat/ Sun 24/ 25 Sept (in Prahran) or by other arrangement. No monologues required – you’ll just read from a script or scripts that we’ll provide.

|Role Name||Gender||Ethnicity||Age Range||Description|
|Beatrix||Female||Any Ethnicity||Any Age||Bea is very independent and drives her own big parcel delivery van. She's way too honest and direct with people, often turning minor hiccups into disasters. She's lives largely in her own world; being a natural and creative storyteller and creating characters that she plays at will. Her flaws bring her into conflict in the outside world, and spawn lots of stories there as well.|
|Fiona (Fi)||Female||Any Ethnicity||Any Age||Fi shares many of Bea's storytelling and character play abilities. That's what unites them. Fi however is cleverer and far less direct than Bea, who is more like a locomotive without brakes. Unknown to Bea, Fi has a very serious long term agenda - and it's deadly serious.|
