AND ALSO

Hey!

I’m looking to cast a teen as the co-lead for a short.

The shoot dates are locked for July 6-9 in the Tower District.

$100 a shoot day, breakfast/lunch supplied.

The role is as Gabe, a high school student on the Autism Spectrum. It is a male role in the script, but we are open to auditioning females as well. We are also open to audition individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Preference will be given to actors 18+ years old, but we are looking for the right fit, so actors under the age of 18 are still strongly encouraged to respond.

Our goal is to get in to film festivals around the world. If interested, please respond with a head shot or selfie to: joliveira.film@gmail.com and we’ll get an audition lined up.

Cheers, Jaime Oliveira

THE ENCHANTED PLAYHOUSE THEATRE COMPANY
BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT WITH THE CS LEWIS COMPANY LTD PRESENTS
PRINCE CASPIAN

The Sequel To “The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe”
ADAPTED BY NICOLE CHAVERS STRATTON
DIRECTED BY KELLY VENTURA
ADAPTION BASED ON THE NOVEL “Prince Caspian” by CS LEWIS
AUDITION ANNOUNCEMENT: AUGUST 19TH & 20TH
WITH CALLBACKS ON AUGUST 21ST
AT GATEWAY CHURCH (1100 SOUTH SOWELL STREET VISALIA, CA 93277)
ROOM 67 6:30PM
SETTING: It has only been a year in the “real world” since the Pevensie children first stepped through the
wardrobe into Narnia. In Narnia, however, thousands of years have passed and the children return only
to discover that Narnia is in desperate need of their help.
Prince Caspian has been denied his right to the throne by Miraz, his power hungry uncle. The exiled Prince
must summon an army of Narnian creatures to fight with him. It is up to King Peter, Queen Susan, King
Edmund, and Queen Lucy to rally their loyal subjects and fight for freedom!
This is an open casting call, and everyone is welcome to audition. Although this is a sequel, all roles are
open for audition. However, the director is looking for actors primarily in the age range from early teens
(or actors that can play early teens) through adult. Previous stage combat experience is a plus for actors
cast in this show.
PRINCIPLE CHARACTERS:
(* indicates a stage combat role)
PETER* (Male, Late teens) Peter is older now and has taken on more of the role of a guardian and
protector of the other three. At the same time, he fights single-handedly for the freedom of Narnia
SUSAN* (Female, Late teens) Older now she has taken on the role of the “mother” of the group.
EDMUND* (Male, mid to late teens) Having learned a great lesson about forgiveness, he is ready to move
on and lead Narnia into battle as Edmund the Just.
LUCY* (Female, early teens) Even though she is older and a bit wiser she still has a readiness to believe
that Aslan will save the day.
PRINCE CASPIAN* (Male, late teens/early 20’s) Though he is very brave, he has been forced into exile. He
has the ability to inspire others to action. The actor cast for this role should have previous stage combat
experience.
MIRAZ* (Male late 30’s/40’s) The scheming uncle to Prince Caspian. Miraz is a proud man and very much
a “Richard the Third” type of a character as he is willing to do anything to take the throne from Caspian.
The actor cast for this role should have past stage combat experience as well.
CORNELIUS (Male late 40’s/50’s) A mentor to Caspian, he reveals the truth and defends Caspian’s rightful
claim to the throne. Great opportunity for an experienced actor who is able to convey the nuances of a
Gandalf type character.
ASLAN* (Male 30’s-50’s) Absent from the realm for many years, Aslan is believed to be only a myth by
humans and Narnians alike. Heralded by Lucy, he appears at a pivotal moment to rescue the fledgling
army. Aslan appears more as a guiding force for the children, and embodies the spirit of Narnia.
TRUFFLEHUNTER THE BADGER* (Male, teens/early 20’s) A bit of a trickster, but is a wealth of knowledge
on Narnia. He is skeptical of Prince Caspian, but he is ready to fight in defense of Narnia at the slightest
provocation.
REEPICHEEP* (Male or female early-late teens) While only a mouse, Reepicheep is indeed a warrior by
nature. This little swashbuckler is also a source of comic relief for obvious reasons. The role is very Errol
Flynn-esque. The actor cast in this part must also have good comedic timing, much like a Shrek sidekick.
TRUMPKIN* (Male or female early teens-early 20’s) A cynical dwarf with a fiery personality. Trumpkin is
skeptical about the children at first but soon comes to be their fiercest and most loyal protector.
Trumpkin’s over all personality is very much like Gimlli the Dwarf.
There will be various other roles available (Telmarines and Narnians) for male and female actors from
early teens (or younger actors that can play early teens) through adult.
AT THE AUDITION:
1. You will be asked to read a scene from the show. Everyone present will be asked to read at least
once. Some may be asked to read more often than others. However, that does not neccesarily
indicate that a casting decision has been made regarding that actor.
2. You will be asked to complete an audition form that night. However, please attach a resume
highlighting your past theatre experience and special skills as well.
3. Please include a photo of yourself with the resume. A cell phone picture is perfect.
4. At the initial audition, the director will be looking for volume, pronunciation, and presence.
5. After the audition, the director will notify you via text or email regarding call backs.
Please make sure that you are available for call backs on August 21st at 6:30pm, in case the director
invites you to return.
