Interested talent must be based in Oregon or Washington, able to work as a local in Portland, and be available for an audition on Friday, September 20, 2013 in Portland and a possible callback on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 in Portland.  Shoot dates are October 5 through November 25, 2013 (though roles will likely only work one day in that date range).

KYLE
Boy, 5-8 years old.  MUST HAVE A BEAUTIFUL BOY SOPRANO SINGING VOICE!  A solemn, somewhat odd child, he’s walking on the trail with his grandmother, Vera, as they go looking for their lost llama, who’s managed to find Cheryl.  He speaks in a rather formal, proper manner, telling Cheryl that his grandmother is looking after him because “I have some big problems that I don’t want to talk about with strangers.”  Kyle seems to take to Cheryl, and sings a song for her—The Red River Valley—beautifully and with feeling.  Auditioning children should be prepared to sing a portion of The Red River Valley.

TATTOOIST
Male or Female, 30s to early 40s.  Heavily inked tattoo artist doing matching tattoos on Cheryl and Paul is startled to learn that they’re getting a divorce, and tries to do a little marriage counseling.

DREADLOCKED YOUNG MAN
Male, 20s.  This angry guy in dreadlocks storms out of the Ashland Oregon Post Office, furious at his treatment by the woman behind the counter.

Wardrobe for all roles: Casual
Rate for all roles: SAG-AFTRA Scale
