“Some claim they are blessed. Others banish it as a curse. I believe it to be neither. I preface this volume by asking you to put aside such extreme views. Within this journal is a collection of stories, experiences, and memories that you may or may not find insightful, whoever you may be. We all seek guidance at some point in our lives, I hope and pray that my musings aid you in your endeavors, or at the very least, provide an adequate tradeoff for the time you have invested in reading my notes and writings. Now I shall cease my rambling and let you move on to more intriguing topics that unravel who you are, or who you may become.”
-Michael Ward (Arcane Cross, page 2)
Hey guys, this is an original Radioplay project I’ve been working on for the last couple of months. I will admit I was heavily-inspired by my recent obsession with Supernatural and other mystery/supernatural type of shows, though this Radioplay will be completely different and is intended to cover different themes from Supernatural (it will not be about two hot guys hunting demons!). I’m planning on producing this Radioplay completely legal and royalty-free using pieces of works licensed under the Creative Common license. At the moment I’m planning on completing a pilot story-arc to test run the project and concept, though if the initial episode goes and arc goes well, I hope to continue the rest of the story!
I’m currently holding auditions for all of the characters that appear in the first episode. Because this Radioplay is very dialogue-heavy in comparison to action-heavy series, I will be stressing and focusing on the acting and interpretation of auditions lines more so than the voices used (this will be tweaked and directed post-casting). All I ask is that your interpretations fit the characters’ personalities and general age ranges. Based on auditions I receive, I may cast additional characters in the next episode as well. In the event I don’t find a particular actor or actress for a character, I may scout the remaining roles. Also, if anyone is interested in auditioning but is hesitant about the project's content or the fate of one of the characters, please pm me and I can provide more of the story (the current synopsis and character descriptions are intended to be spoiler free). I’m very excited for this project and look forward to your auditions!
The small, rural town of Everwood Creek deep in the Washington wilderness has always been a peaceful place. Neighbors live acres away from each other, with only a single road connecting each property affectionately named "Cedar Way". However, years ago a string of brutal murders sent the sleepy township into panic. The majority of the victims being youths, they were cut, squeezed, and left to rot; their bodies mutilated in pieces. No killer was ever put behind bars, though there were rumors that some kind of unspeakable ritual was being performed behind closed doors. Then as sudden as the killings began, they suddenly stopped; until now...
Drew, Kristen and Lexy are heading out to Everwood Creek on a mission to help Lexy achieve an A on her journalism assignment. Required to write an extensive paper on the decline of small-town, rural communities, Everwood Creek fits the criteria perfectly! Lexy has set-up a meeting with a woman named Lizzie Anderson, a long time resident of Everwood Creek. Upon arriving at there, Kristen can’t shrug off a ominous feeling that something isn’t right about the town. Her worries are confirmed when a news anchor on TV reports about a missing boy. In a rapid chain of events, Lexy, Drew and Kristen are unwillingly dragged into an old family conflict, one that involves past mistakes, tragedies, and moments of desperation. Drew, Kristen and Lexy must now stick together in order to survive Everwood Creek, as several unknown strangers in town are on a mission to bring about their demise.

-Poor mic quality may negatively affect your audition. While I do not expect everyone to have pro-level equipment, I am attempting to make this Radioplay as professional as possible and will not accept lines that are heavily distorted, tinny or low-quality. Please keep pops, peaking and other microphone noises to a minimum.
-Record a minimum of three different takes per line with varying inflections and phrasings. These may include different voices or character interpretations.
-Include all audition lines for each character in one file and label it using the following template:
Username_CharacterName.mp3 (ie. "Jefferz_Caleb.mp3")
-Save all recordings as stereo mp3 files with a minimum of 128kbs bitrate. This will be the minimum quality I will accept if cast. During recordings of the actual episode in production, I will accept other file formats of equivalent quality or higher.
-Send all auditions to Jefferzkm@gmail.com. Upon receiving your audition, I will send a confirmation email that I have received your audition (must follow the audition guidelines). After the final cast has been decided, I will be sending out emails with further instructions and scripts with personalized directions and notes for each character.
