BGRated Casting Call: CASTING ACTORS & PUPPETEERS FOR A KIDS TV SERIES!! – N/U – PAID – BGRated Canada
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Set during the 1980’s, CAMP COWABUNGA is a live-action series for kids that features a bunch of fun and zany camp staff as well as lovable woodland creatures (in puppet form) where kids learn, create, and connect with nature as we LAUGH, PLAY and SING!
CAMP COWABUNGA is a love letter to the ‘80s Canadian Kids Shows like Mr. Dressup, Sharon, Lois & Bram, Camp Cariboo, Today’s Special and You Can’t Do That On Television.
The PILOT has already been shot (which can be watched at www.campcowabunga.ca) and we will be shooting 3 more episodes using funds raised via Indiegogo.
We are looking to cast 3 ACTORS and 2 PUPPETEERS.
This is a low budget NON-UNION production, but all involved will receive a small honorarium (food will also be provided).
We will be shooting on location near Fergus, Ontario sometime during September 4-16, 2018. Exact dates are to be determined. Actors will only be required for 1 or 2 days during the shoot. Puppeteers may be required for 2 or 3 days. We will try to help arrange transportation, if needed.
If interested in auditioning, please submit a Headshot, Resume and Demo Reel (if available) including the role(s) you’re interested in NO LATER THAN AUG 7th at 5pm. Actors selected will be asked to submit a self-taped audition with sides to be provided. Puppeteers selected will be asked to come in for an audition in downtown Toronto on August 11th or 12th.
PLEASE NOTE: We will only be contacting those selected for an audition.
NANCY (Female, 20s-30s, PoC) – A camp counsellor. Nancy loves summer camp and can’t imagine spending her summers anywhere other at Camp Cowabunga! She is beaming with camp spirit (almost a little too much) and loves to sing camp songs.
REMY (Male, 20s-30s, French Canadian) – The lifeguard. Quirky and fit, Remy is all about physical fitness and loves teaching campers French words.
LILY (Female, Early 20s, Indigenous) – A camp counsellor. This is her first summer at camp cowabunga and is a little nervous about all the big personalities at camp. She is great at listening to others and giving advice.
OWEN (an owl) – Owen is the baby of the group and is learning all about the world around him. This is his first time at summer camp and he’s feeling a little homesick
BARB (a beaver) – Barb loves an adventure and is always keen to learn new things. She’s smart and very resourceful.
