It is important actors and actresses know they will be able to put on their resume they have performed in a semi-professional live production sanctioned by Warner Bros. Pictures and Railway Events, Inc.
Both company’s ride the Polar Express each year to critique it. There are only 55 Polar Express Trains in the United States and 5 in Europe. So, being a part of the production is quite an honor in my opinion. We are aiming to be the Number 1 Polar Express production in the country, so having a cast who is serious about performing at their best is important.
An audition packet will be emailed to you once you confirm your interest in auditioning- it has all character information in it.
Carla will be casting multiple people in the roles. There are a total of 25 nights of performances with 3, 1 hour shows each night. For each night I will need the following number of performers:
Conductor = 1
Stewards = 4
Chef/Elf (Chelf’s) = 8
Hobo = 1
Hero Boy = 1
Santa = 2
Conductor – Must be a male. Age 25+ and familiar with operating an MP3 player for running the sound system in the train cars.
Steward – Male or Female. Would prefer they be 18+, but will consider someone 16 or 17 depending on their maturity level.
Chelf’s – Male or Female. 16+, However will consider actors/actresses 13 to 15 years old, but they must be able to maintain a character at all times, follow instructions and perform with confidence.
Hobo – Must be male. Age 30+ preferred, but will consider a younger person depending on their talent and look.
Hero Boy – Male and must be no taller than 54″ or 4 1/2 feet tall.
Santa – Male and Age 40+, but the older the better. We be beneficial if they had their own Santa costume, but we can provide if needed. Would also like to have someone who would could and would grow their own beard and have their hair and beard bleached white for the run of the Polar Express. This is not a necessity to be considered, but it makes Santa a little more believable.
Carla (Director) will be back in country the morning of August 28th is all goes as planned.
There is pay, just awaiting exact budget details.
To be considered, email firstname.lastname@example.org head shot/resume etc ASAP.
