Casting actors and singers for “For Crying Out Loud” (S. Florida)

4 Christ Sake Entertainment Casting Call.
For Crying Out Loud, the South Florida theatrical debut of 4ChristSake Entertainment, is a riveting story of four very different patients receiving treatment in a wellness center. Brand New Day Wellness Center, headed by Dr. Jobari Strong, isn’t your typical mental health clinic. Where other doctors treat the symptoms, Dr. Strong, along with his assistant, Mary, help their patients with spiritually-led advice to help the whole person realize there is indeed hope.

With patients ranging from the beautiful, successful Leslie Charles to single mother of five, Samira Wellington, the audience will see that people from all walks of life have issues to work out.

For Crying Out Loud uncovers depression and mental illness in a relatable and understandable way. The audience will leave uplifted through Biblical stories that parallel the patients’ own struggles and shortcomings. With songs of praise and an underlying theme of continuous hope the patients’ stories will uplift and encourage anyone who has something to cry out about.

We are casting actors and singers for a one-day run on Saturday, December 26, 2009.
