Smoke On The Mountain Auditions – 1476831
02-23-15 – Birmingham, AL>Nashville, TN – Smoke on the Mountain tells the story of a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938. The show features two dozen rousing bluegrass songs played and sung by the Sanders Family, a traveling group making its return to performing after a five-year hiatus. Pastor Oglethorpe, the young and enthusiastic minister of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, has enlisted the Sanders Family in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into “the modern world.” Between songs, each family member “witnesses” — telling a story about an important event in their life. Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of a congregation who wants to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry and they reveal their true — and hilariously imperfect – natures.

This audience favorite features a dozen traditional gospel tunes. It is a heartwarming story about community, family and the ties that bind us all together.

The members of the Sanders Family must be able to play either piano or some blue grass instrument (guitar, bass fiddle, banjo, mandolin). Daughter June does not play, she “signs”, meaning she is a very physical actress who uses her body to (hilariously) convey the lyrics of the songs.

Cold readings will be done from the script. — Project Type: Live Event

Student Filmmakers Casting for Actors – 1475854
02-16-15 – Louisville, KY>Nashville, TN – The synopsis of the story is basically as follows; there are two main characters, a man and a woman – the married couple.

The girl is sick of the abusive relationship and begins to question everything she knew about the man she thought she loved – then she does something tragic.

Some other characters that are apart of the story: A therapist, the boss of the married man’s work, a client of the boss, and the third main character – whom for now, will be labeled as an average Joe type of character. This character will deal with some drama he never once thought he would ever have to through.
