Open Casting Call
Oxford MS
Saturday, March 27, 2010
10:30am – 5:30pm
Isom Hall (Theater Dept), Ole Miss Campus, Room 302

From the 25K the movie web site:
“25K” is a full length independent comedy/action film shooting in Oxford, Mississippi and the surrounding areas May 17 – June 3, 2010. It follows the misadventures of two bail enforcement agents who make a series of bad decisions with violent consequences.

As we are shooting on a micro-budget, we are casting unpaid actors. Actors must be available for the above shooting dates. An email notice of your plans to audition (25kthemovie @ gmail.com) is appreciated, but not necessary.

We will provide sides for the reading, but feel free to come prepared with a short (1-2 minute) monologue of your choice.

We will be filling the following roles:

ETTA
Early to mid 20’s. Caucasian, Hispanic, or Latina femail. Maximum height of 5’8″. Etta is beautiful and fit, but curvy. (Don’t worry about having a “model’s build”.) Etta is flirtatious and impulsive. She can change emotions in seconds. She married too early and has regrets settling down so soon.
