SYNOPSIS

The Beacon is an upcoming audio drama podcast initially told in the style of an in-universe podcast.  It begins with the story of one college student who finds herself in possession of the magical ability to summon fire, followed by her efforts to find others like who have abilities like hers.  As the number of people revealed to have similar powers grows, the implications of these powers rise to the surface, and the characters find themselves almost as much in conflict with each other as they are with the equally powerful monster stalking their campus.

PRODUCTION

This show is a first-time production based out of Wisconsin.  Those auditioning are not expected to be available in the same area, as recording will take place remotely and independently.  Table reads and additional direction for actors will be available during the recording period of production.

AUDITIONING

Actors of all levels of experience are welcome to audition, but are expected to have reasonable quality of recording equipment and access to a recording environment with minimal background noise.  Actors can apply for multiple roles they may feel suited to. It is only requested that you do not apply for roles meant to represent minorities and marginalized groups if you do not share their identity.

We’re All Lonely People Casting Call

Casting for episodes 1&2 has begun. Please note that currently these are unpaid roles. If the podcast brings in any revenue, actors will be compensated.
To audition, record lines corresponding to the role you desire from this audition sheet, fill out this form, & send your auditions to lonelypeoplepod@gmail.com. The deadline for current auditions is May 31, 2018. Feel free to contact me at the email above with any questions.
Auditions are being accepted for the following roles:

  • NARRATOR
    Male. Thirties. Our narrator is sarcastic and snarky, an attitude that shows how cynical and jaded he is. A knowledgeable veteran of PHP, the narrator explains the ins-and-outs of the program while he reflects on his time there.
  • THERESA
    Female. Thirties. Theresa is the resident therapist. She’s warm and friendly, but almost too much so. She’s the kind of person who maintains eye contact and a smile long after a conversation is over. Yes, that person. Theresa wants to help people in the program, but no one ever considers the toll it takes on her.
  • GREG
    Male. 70’s-80’s. Textbook old man. He can’t remember where his car keys or when his appointments are. Greg entered the program because he feels like the world is pushing his generation out to make way for a new one. He feels out of place and lost in a world full of language and technology he doesn’t understand.
  • IZZY
    Female. Late teens. Recent college dropout. She’s punk, says “like” too many times, and is very outspoken unless she’s the center of attention. Her bipolar and borderline personality disorders ran rampant in college, where she was sucked into a toxic environment full of alcohol abuse and vicious manic/depressive mood swings. She’s in PHP to get leveled out so that she can go back to school.
  • DAN
    Male. Middle-Aged. Widower. Dan’s incredibly negative and fixated on the past. He blames himself for the death of his significant other 10 years ago and seems incapable of moving on from her death. He is depressed, suicidal, and resistant to help. He’s in PHP because his daughter pushed him to enter the program after being suicidal.
  • CLAIRE
    Female. Early twenties. single mother of 2. She’s tightly wound, obsessive, and neat. She doesn’t want to let her kids down, and that motivates her to make the best of the program. She landed in PHP after a stress-induced drunk-driving accident. She wants to be a good mom, but is having difficulty dealing with the stress of being a single mother.
  • BRAD
    Male. Late twenties. This season follows Brad’s journey through PHP. He’s depressed and suicidal, suffering from low self-worth and trapped in cycles of negative thought and self-talk. He feels undeserving of his families love and care and doesn’t really want to be in PHP but sticks it out for the sake of his wife and kids.
  • BONNIE
    Female. Middle aged. Mother. Bonnie is tough from a life of physical and emotional abuse, but is depressed and weary of being treated like she’s worthless, most recently by her unfaithful husband. She doesn’t believe that the program is going to help her and that it’s a disappointing waste of time.
  • TROY
    Male. Twenties. Once a star basketball player, an injury led Troy down a path of reliance on prescription drugs. Now, after a near-death experience, Troy is dead set on getting clean and straightening his life out. PHP is court ordered for his prescription drug addiction and suicidal tendencies.

Looking For All Kinds of Help For Audiodrama Podcast

Hi, I make the audiodrama podcast At The End Of The Line, with the idea being it’s a post-apocalyptic travel show as the host journeys around a ruined England. Basically I get to play with every different apocalyptic scenario you can think of – zombies, Artificial Intelligence, plagues.
I pretty much do everything by myself and I’m looking for other people to be involved, it can be behind the scenes with writing, editing, music etc., but also looking for voice actors. The show is essentially one person, Richard Oliver, relaying what has happened recently but I want to have more “guests” being interviewed as well as having other actors to do segments or allow me greater options with narrative than me being the sole voice actor currently allows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated with full credit given but unfortunately no money.

Below is the website so you can see what the show is like –
