To audition please post a 20 second video audition and improvise one of the following character breakdowns:-
OPTION 1 – ANGIE (female role)
Angie is Don’s wife. She is focused on her social media in her phone while her kids call for her and her husband. She placates them verbally without picking her head up.The audition should illustrate a ‘non present’ mother. She is too busy to dedicate her time to her kids with whatever it is in her phone (work, social media, pinterest, etc) while her kids are yelling “Hey Mom, look at me!” Improvise this scene!
OPTION 2 – DON (male role)
Don is a young dad. You are placating your kids who are seeking your attention as you focus your attention on your phone instead of your kids. You seem to be more interested in social media than your kids who are jockeying for your attention. Improvise this scene!
