Shroud of the Avatars New Britannia Theater Troupe Needs Thespians!
Every think about doing a bit of acting? Virtual style?
The New Britannia Theater Troupe is in need of some additional staff! As a founding member and actor myself, I can tell you that it does not take long, it is rewarding and fun. You should give it a try!
The following is from director Asclepius:
This is a CASTING CALL to all aspiring Thespians!
As you may know, I am the director of the New Britannia Theater Troupe. Between us we have delighted the community with many plays and stories, both live in-game plays and audio only radio plays.
I am currently looking for actors willing to take part in a live, in game play we are developing. I need one male and one, possibly two, female actors.
The deal is: I forward you lines to read. You record them and return them to me. I splice everything together, adding music and sound effects, to create an audio file.
At appointed times, we get together in game to rehearse. Our characters act out the story on stage, copy/pasting the text in time with the soundtrack as it is running.
When we are ready, we present it to the community. We have a truly wonderful location for the performance, it only awaits a production. As we perform, the audio will be simulcast on Avatars Radio, so the audience can see and hear the production.
So what am I looking for, and what do you need?
Firstly, enthusiasm. The most important requirement. I am not interested in people who accept a role and then don’t come through. This has been in the works for quite some time; for the sake of everyone else who has put effort into it, it deserves to get done and be shown to the community.
A decent voice is useful. Don’t stress, this is not Carnegie Hall, and you are among friends. Just the ability to read lines 😊
You also need a microphone and some recording software. Audacity is most commonly used – it’s free and easy to use. We mostly work with mp3 files, but I can accept almost anything.
You also need to be available for rehearsals and live performance in game, at times that suit everyone (by negotiation).
If you would like to join a great team, PLEASE PM me in the forum or at Asclepius@thecaverns.net. Love to hear from you, and I will be glad to talk you through any questions you have regarding recording, live work or anything else.
Thanks and look forward to hearing from you!
