New survival series “The Oregon Trail” now casting skilled frontiersmen who think they can navigate the wilderness the same way they did in history.

If you’re a skilled frontiersman that would love a chance to navigate the most treacherous stretch of the historic Oregon Trail, the same way your historical heroes did!

Submitting talent for a short narrative film to be shot in the Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC area.

Luna – (age range: 17-22, any ethnicity): She starts out as an innocent (but curious) magic-seeking individual. During the course of the film she goes though a wide-range of emotions: fear, curiosity, longing, etc.

Woman – (age range: 25-35, any ethnicity): Unique, striking and very in touch & confident with her sexuality. Can have an androgynous look.

Man – (age range: 25-35, any ethnicity): Alluring, handsome and very smooth & in control. Can have an androgynous look.

Tentative shoot dates: May 27th-30th. To be shot around Asheville, NC & Greenville, SC. Paid. You will receive all meals on set & credit.

Audition details:
Send a resume & headshot to Casting@gagetalent.com with your name and the role you are submitting for in the subject line.

When: Saturday May 14th & Sunday May 15th
Time: 4:30pm-8:30pm
Where: Asheville, NC (address and time slot to be provided if casting would like to see you in person)

Summary of film: The film is about Luna, an artist, exploring the feeling of desire through painting. She adventures to a beautiful, secluded area in the woods and just as she is about to take the first brush stroke: an enchanting, seductive couple magically appear in the forest. The couple follow Luna through the forest. As the journey & romantic tension progresses, Luna goes through a series of emotions: nervousness, fear, then curiosity, then longing, then excitement– the progression of desire. In the end we are unsure if Luna’s magical encounter was all a fantasy in her mind, or if the romance actually occurred. Art is a way for us to indulge in our fantasies, but sometimes the line between reality & illusion can blur.

Walters State Community College


Encore announces auditions for the 2016 Young Stars Series production of  James and the Giant Peach, Jr.   Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories,  James and the Giant Peach Jr. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.


Auditions will be held on Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15 at 2:00 p.m. at Walters State Community College.    Auditions are open to students ages 8 through 18 (up to a graduating senior).   Those wishing to audition should prepare at least 32 bars of a musical theatre selection.   Please bring a copy of the sheet music.  An accompanist will be provided.   The production team is looking to cast approximately 30 members for the production.   Rehearsals are scheduled to begin late June with performances scheduled for August 12-21.   



Character Breakdown:


Ladahlord - Ladahlord is a mysterious character who seems to have a hand in the magical things that are happening. Though he may seem a bit off, he carefully watches over James, making sure James moves towards to a better life. Ladahlord also serves as a guiding narrator throughout the story. This is a perfect role for a charismatic young actor who can sing and dance well.

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: Gb5

Vocal range bottom: G3


James - James is the hero of our story, on an epic quest to find a family of his own and gain confidence in himself. Cast a young boy with an unchanged voice and someone who has great acting instincts. Make sure he can win over an audience and is comfortable being onstage.

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: E5

Vocal range bottom: G#3


Ladybug - Ladybug immediately takes on a doting, maternal role in James life. This is a fantastic role for a performer with a great singing voice and a regal demeanor.

Gender: Female

Vocal range top: D5

Vocal range bottom: A3


Grasshopper - Grasshopper, the leader of the Insects, is ever the optimist and assumes a paternal role in James life. Cast a performer who can sing and act well, but foremost has a warm, inviting presence.

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: F#5

Vocal range bottom: A3


Spider - Spider is a clever creature who becomes 
a fun-loving older sister to James. A young woman with a spunky personality and a great voice is a perfect choice for the role.

Gender: Female

Vocal range top: C5

Vocal range bottom: B3


Earthworm - Earthworm is a gentle spirit, although he can be a bit of a coward. Luckily, he gains enough courage to save the day by baiting some gullible seagulls. Earthworm looks at James as a brother figure. Cast a performer who can sing well, and more importantly, someone who isn t afraid of being a little outlandish.

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: A5

Vocal range bottom: B3


Centipede - Centipede may be a bit of grouch, but he is ever-loyal to the pack, and by the end of the story, he s won over by James. James sees Centipede as that cranky uncle with a heart of gold. Centipede should have a good singing voice, and be able to make strong, specific acting choices.

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: F#5

Vocal range bottom: G3


Spiker and Sponge -  Spiker and Sponge are the sort of aunts (or monsters) that you fear ever being stuck with. They take James into their home but
only so that he can be their own personal servant. Spiker is the brains of the operation, and Sponge is more concerned with finding something to eat. These are great character roles for two young performers who are fantastic singers and actors. To play into the humor, cast a duo that contrasts completely in physical appearance.

Gender: Female

Vocal range top: E5

Vocal range bottom: F3


Zoo Crowd

Mr. Trotter, Mrs. Trotter, Karl Kreatour and the Zoo Crowd are all part of James nightmare. These are small, featured roles, so feel free to cast from your ensemble.

Gender: Both


Matron Nurse - The Matron Nurse runs the Painswick Orphanage, and you definitely get a sense she hasn t had a vacation in years. This is a great acting role for a young woman who can command a room.

Gender: Female


Billy and Bobby Bobby-Cop - Billy and Bobby Bobby-Cop are a perfectly unified pair of cops working for Scotland Yard. This is fun cameo role for two performers who work well together.

Gender: Male


Vagrants - The Vagrants, including Doreen Driggles, Ridgley Rapscallion, Violet Funkschmeller, and Chris Cryermouth are an ensemble of have-nots to support Spiker and Sponge s treacherous plans. These ensemble roles are important for making up the world of the musical. The Passing Man, Man (with wallet) and Passing Woman all have featured moments where they fall victim to Spiker and Sponge.

Gender: Both


Garden Chorus -  The Garden Chorus comes to life in  Shake It Up as Ladahlord mixes a magical potion. This is a great place to cast kids of various skill level and get them excited about musical theater.

Gender: Both


Reporters - The Reporters, including Ida Walters, are on the scene just as the peach is becoming larger than life. Cast a group of energetic performers.

Gender: Both


Ladies - Bitsy Botana and the rest of the Ladies Garden Guild are in flowery frocks and hats, intent on having Spiker and Sponge give the keynote speech at their conference. A few young performers with good voices will do the trick.

Gender: Female


Hollywood Agents - The Hollywood Agents, led by Buzz, 
jump in on the success of the growing peach with movie and Broadway deals for Spiker and Sponge. Like the Reporters, this is a fun group to cast with some lively performers.

Gender: Both


Farm Animals, Willy Wonka And Oompa-Loompas - Farm Animals, Willy Wonka and Oompa-Loompas are all in harm s way as the peach outgrows its stem and rolls towards the ocean. These are very fun cameo roles for performers with personality.

Gender: Both


Angry Crowd - The Angry Crowd is in search of the amazing giant peach, but they quickly turn into an angry mob when the peach is nowhere to be found. These ensemble parts are easy to cast from any of your company.

Gender: Both
