Most of our troupe members have more than one skill. Please tell us what you can do!
Actors are selected based on voice acting ability. For some of our screen capture videos, that's it! For our live shows and other projects, you also need a basic working knowledge of virtual world interfaces, particularly with avatar manipulation and voice chat. If you have no virtual world experience, we recommend that you open a free account in Second Life® or Kitely and spend some time learning how to get around, focusing primarily on avatar movement, customizing and dressing your avatar; inventory organization and camera viewing options. You’ll need a good microphone setup and a strong, stable Internet connection (wireless not recommended!). Once you’re ‘inworld,’ we invite you to contact us, get on one of our notification lists and by all means – come see a show!
Please prepare a 1-minute monologue using a character from a script that suits your natural speaking voice, age and gender. We frequently do Shakespeare, so we welcome any additional 1 minute of classical dialog. Please show other character voices with 30-second bits, if you can. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
Just your voice, no added sound or post production other than simple cut-and-paste editing.
Email in mp3 format to: MadameThespian Underhill at [email protected], along with your CV and any other information you think we'd find useful. Directing abilities a plus!
If she contacts you for a further audition, these are generally in front of the rest of the troupe, inworld at one of the grids where we perform.
