Male Actor Needed For Murder Mystery Show – Sonoma, CA / San Francisco, CA

Casting Call Details:
Non-equity, Male actor needed for a roaring 20’s type of murder mystery show for the evening of Saturday, July 16th.

We are a long-time established entertainment company operating out of the San Francisco Bay Area. There will be 3 other professional actors performing along with you during this event.

The role is for a dashing, debonaire, Italian playboy stereotype from the roaring 20’s.
Appearance: You must look somewhat convincing as an Italian man from 1931: suave, but actual physical attributes can vary…shorter, taller, heavier, thinner. It’s a comedic role, but you play it with robust sincerity and bravado! Your role requires answering 15 questions during the course of solving the murder mystery. Actual time for your part of the show script takes about 5 minutes – although entire play takes about an hour and a half. You will remain in character the whole time as you mingle and schmooze with about 75 guests. Lots of ad-libbing and a good-natured sense of humor is required to pull off this role.

Voice: Speak with a fake Italian accent (does not have to be perfect) with a humorous twist.
Age: 35 – 45 years old.
Costume/attire: You will supply your own costume (you will get help with ideas for this). A preppy version of the 1931 era – as in Great Gatsby. You are NOT a gangster with a pinstripe suit! Women will find you attractive and stylish.

PAY is $150.

Location: This will be a public dinner where guests have bought tickets to attend. Actual location to be revealed later to final candidate. It is within a 50 mile drive of San Francisco. You must have reliable transportation.

Time on location for cocktail hour and mingling, then dinner and play: 2.5 – 3 hours total.

Possibility of more role assignments in the future, depending on your performance for this play!

Send your professional headshots, and/or professional photo composites (all photos to be .jpeg or PDF files only) and acting resume’ (Word.doc or PDF).

Do not send links to other websites or social media and expect us to track down your info on the internet! Send me your actual, attached files!!

Final candidates that meet the criteria will be contacted ASAP for a telephone interview, with a possible follow-up in-person interview/audition.

PAY is $150, plus a high quality dinner and fine wines
