StoryBook is in search of one last adult and one child actor in order to complete our 2019/20 Season of productions. Both production teams are requesting video submissions.
JUNIOR CLAUS is seeking a male-identifying actor 40+ to fit into the role of the patriarch of the holiday season, Santa Claus. In this show, Santa is a bit scatter-brained but remains warm-spirited and jovial even with the world no longer believing in him and who he is. Actors should be able to sing and act, dancing is an added bonus but not a pre-requisite.
MATILDA is seeking one young male-identifying actor 10 to 16 to be a part of our young company.
VIDEO SUBMISSIONS for consideration must be through You Tube or Vimeo or an online streaming service.
Submissions will be accepted until August 15th via this link
