Phew! An avalanche of actors resumes are flooding my inbox, and it's not even been 24 hours. Yay! Some recognized names, some experienced radio actors, and an interesting offer for a theremin. There's definitely a place in this show for a theremin!
Today I secured the venue, the Terrance Sanders Gallery on the 900 block of Royal in the Quarter. He hosts a lot of spoken word events there and has an audience. Gave me a great deal, but I have to scare up 40 chairs. Ok, next task.
A couple radio stations are running PSAs of the audition call. Hopefully that will extend into promotion for the reading itself, and some interest on the parts of their radio personnel. Two stations are on my target list: WRBH Reader Radio for the Blind and WWNO, both of which have done audio drama, and both have the ability to stream over the Internet.
Need to find a keyboardist with a feel for theatrical music and fake commercial jingles of the 50s. And then of course, a sound effects person. A live foley artist would be a nice-to-have, but we'll proceed with the reading without sound effects if necessary.
