Open Auditions: Monday 22nd March 2010


What a fantastic opening night!

Thank you to all auditionees for their glorious performances. We had some really great auditions and I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from the Casting Directors soon. The night went very smoothly with four booths being able to accommodate around 150 people in 3 hours. I’ve included some pics below and more can be seen on the Facebook group (TBA)!

A tired but happy crew are looking forward to Tuesday!



Tonight is the first evening of our auditions. With just under 500 applicants, we start the process of auditioning the prospective actors this evening! An exciting opportunity  for everyone involved, we are really looking forward to meeting everyone.

With just over a month before we start shooting, the countdown has begun.

Audition update!
