This year, I've produced a number of short audio comedy sketches for upload to my YouTube channel using talent from StarNow. I am now looking to create a Christmas special to finish the year and am looking for actors to fill a number of roles.

The work can be completed at home in your own time with payment via PayPal or bank transfer. They're fairly short roles with around 5/6 dialogues each so I imagine they could be completed within an hour. This is a small hobbyist piece but you will of course be credited both in the piece itself and in the description.

SYNOPSIS: Do you remember Christmas Eve 2018, when Kevin Spacey uploaded that weird Let Me Be Frank video and the internet was strangely fascinated by it? Well in this piece, three sets of friends are in a pub garden on that very day each arguing about their relationship problems. Then, when one of them decides to check out this bizarre new video, it acts as the catalyst for each of them to put their differences to one side and to make up in time for Christmas, as they watch on in shock.

I of course understand that on the face it of it, this could be seen as controversial but I wish to assure you that through the script, this is a light-hearted piece with the humour focused on the absurdity of portraying this video as some sort of 'Christmas miracle'. There isn't any offensive or distasteful themes involved and I would take anything like that extremely seriously. I don't even think there's any swearing for example.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

As soon as possible but in your own time! - I appreciate you may have other priorities and can work around them.
