If you are a young child or have a child-like voice, we would be most interested in considering you for those types of roles. If, however, you are older but have a vocal range of child, teen, and adult (or even can switch male/female voices), we would love to hear your range in the clip. Feel free to change your voice as you read so we get a sense for your ability. Ages 5 and up are encouraged to audition, as well as adults of all ages; we have many diverse roles to fill!
If cast, a performance fee of $125 will be collected from each actor on the first week of rehearsals. Rehearsals will be on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings beginning November 14 through December 12. A recording session will be held the week of December 13 to create the aired copy of the show. In addition, these radio shows will be featured on a local Dallas radio station this holiday season.
All rehearsals for our radio show season will take place on Zoom. Small groups (socially distancing) will meet at the end of production calendar to tape vocals for the master recording to be played on a local radio station.
For more information or questions, please email Crystal at Crystal@punchlineplayers.com. If you are interested in serving on tech crew for sound effects, please email Crystal to get more info. We are a registered non-profit and can give service hours for high school students seeking NHS (or other community organization-type) points.
