Description

Open Auditions for our transferring play, #WARHEADS, this summer, at The Park Theatre.

We are looking to meet a wide variety of actors and actresses of all ages, creeds, colors and sizes to potentially cast in our upcoming production of WARHEADS at The Park Theatre, this August.

We will be meeting actors in groups of 5-10, to watch each individual do a 1-2 minute monologue of their choice, which they feel represents them in the best light. All actors will then be considered for the upcoming theatre roles, as well as for posteriorly produced features, shorts, plays, read-throughs and workshops.

TRUE MAVERICK MEDIA ltd has previously produced three short films, two sell-out shows and a full length feature film.

Captain Deeks (40-50) MALE

Deeks is Wepp’s Commanding Officer in Afghanistan. A formidable man who has made his way up through the ranks as man and boy. Due to his years of service, he is now dealing with his own war-induced trauma. He is also immersed in Wepp’s PTSD as hallucinations and blurred memories. He becomes an embodiment of power, masculinity & mental illness and, therefore, acts at the play’s antagonist, drilling and grinding Wepp into his final submission.

Morlock (Mory) (16-25) MALE

Mory is Wepp’s best friend and the voice of reason. A calm, rational but funny young man who tries his utmost to save his best mate from descending further despite Wepp’s paranoia, accusations and aggression. A reluctant soldier himself who only signs up for Wepp - a true friend until the end.


Philipa Keys (25-35) FEMALE

Younger than average therapist. A calm, privately insucure, outwardly confident and calm woman. She's the voice of calm and reason.


Tembe (20-30) ANY GENDER

The inapropriate house-mate with a funny bone. Tembe is a joker, an over-eater, a loud-mouth, a loveable rogue and a tough cookie all rolled into one. Always coming in at the wrong moment, but also always there to help when it counts.


Tena Robinson (18-28) FEMALE

A young, driven actress with a heart of gold. She takes Weppler in like a lost puppy and stands by him through thick and thin.


Miles Weppler (16-25) MALE

A young, gun-crazed, COD-Obsessed, reckless, uncontrollable ball of a boy. Joins the army in the hopes of becoming gods gift to women. But what he ends up being, is not at all what he set out for.


All roles can be any ethnicity.


Please book your slot Via Eventbrite link.


What to prepare:

Please prepare a 1-2 minute monologue (No longer than this) of your choice. Prefferably something clear and simple.

Gender swaps and color blind choices are welcomed. As long as the speech is clear and easy to understand, so that we can focus on your acting, rather than trying to work out who you're talking to and what the monologue is about.

Don't try and guess what we want to see you do. Just do something you want to do. Writting that you feel passionate about. Characters you're dying to play.


What to wear:

Whatever you feel most comfortable in. What you usually wear.
