DramaWorks Rehearsal Tools

For all of those unable to access the rehearsal tools, we have added them on a YouTube Playlist so that it is more convenient for you.
Here is the link:
We are passing along some rehearsal resources on our google drive for at home practice for those who are familiar with that also. If not, just use the Youtube link above. 
 
In the Google folder (for those not accessing YouTube) you will find a tutorial to help the Lunites learn their parts. Keep in mind our Royal Lunites are both speaking while also using some sign language. This has been an exciting challenge but our actors are rising to the occasion and doing a wonderful job.

There is also the song (Oh Luna) for anyone playing a Royal Lunite or Royal Queen Luna. The words are in the scripts. We also have the Count on Me Song attached for the Star Crew/Star Fleet (Full first Verse & Chorus) and Lunites (Chorus only).

 
 
 
 

Thanks for doing at home rehearsals so we can ensure everyone is familiar with their scenes. The Starcrew Team does more individual based lines, therefore a tutorial is not needed other than for the Count On Me song.

Casting Opportunity from Pixcom Productions

 

 

Hi Everyone

 

We received this email and thought we’d share it with all of you.

From: Harriet Luke <hluke@pixcom.com>

Subject: Pixcom Productions – Development/Casting
Cc: Taeo Soleil Levine <taeolevine1@gmail.com>

I just wanted to follow up on our conversation re: the show we have in development right now with CBC, that you might be able to help us with!

Just to recap the series will feature a group of individuals with disabilities who are super eager to get a job in the restaurant industry, but have struggled to do so. They will be put through a training course with a top head chef in order to learn the skills needed to work in a restaurant and set them up to enter the workforce!

We are looking to cast people with a wide rage of disabilities, ideally people who are starting out in their careers (18 –  25  years old). We are looking for people who have a positive attitude, an outgoing personality, and who would be capable of working long days and can communicate effectively. They can be located anywhere across the county.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated! At this stage we are just looking to speak with people on the phone and do Skype interviews. Taeo, cc’ed here is heading up the trainee casting, and will be in touch as well.

Look forward to hearing from you and don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions!

Chat soon,
