Description:
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO AUDITIONED AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CAST! Episode 1 is now live and ready to listen to at https://soundcloud.com/fablesradio

Pilot for an audio adaptation of the comic book series "Fables", by Bill Willingham. Short 15-20 minutes audio performance based of an adapted script.

Premise of "Fables": A secret community of immortals, whose names we've come to know through myth, legend, and fairy-tales, hide in exile in New York City from the evil force known as the Adversary. Hundreds of years in hiding, they are threatened by tensions and conflict within their own community. In our first adventure, Sheriff Bigby Wolf investigates the violent disappearance of Snow White's sister, Rose Red.

For information about character concepts and script samples, see the blog "If Fables Was A TV Show" at http://darling-gypsum.tumblr.com/post/120445336922/fables00

CASTING NOTES: Hoping for folks with decent audio setups, to help in the editing process. Feel free to check out the Telltale game "Wolf Among Us" for voice inspiration, but we're not looking for just impersonations. Bringing something new to the character is totally fine and encouraged!

Snow White

Snow White
Name: Snow White
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
(appears 25-35) Deputy Mayor of Fabletown. No nonsense, professional, graceful (sometimes), harboring some emotional scars and baggage, in need of some unwinding. Compassionate to the plight of Fabletown's residents, but exhausted and bogged down by the responsibility and bureaucracy of her position. (American accent, medium-low, smooth, modern woman)
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"If you want to go directly to the Mayor, that's your prerogative. But I'll tell you exactly what will happen. He'll listen to your problem and make all the right noises about how sorry he is for your plight - and his sympathy will be genuine because he's a wonderful, empathetic man. And then the moment you're out the door, he'll ask me what *I* want to do about it. For better or worse, you've just had your appeal to city hall."
Line 2:
"[50% flirtatious] Maybe women wear low necklines to filter out the gentlemen from the dogs."
Line 3:
"If she's dead, Jack, so help me, I will throw you down the Witching Well as you kick and scream."

Jack
Name: Jack

Desperate, A bit twitchy, under suspicion of murdering his girlfriend, Rose Red. Upset that something might've happened to her. (Medium, American accent, young guy).

Line 2:
"Bigby, you gotta help me! Something terrible's happened!"

Beauty

Beauty
Name: Beauty
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
(appears 25-35) Smart, ambitious, frustrated. Her relationship with her husband has its dramatic ups and downs. Wants to rise above her station and make something of their lives since losing their lands and fortune in the Exile. (American accent)
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"You can't expect someone to be married for a thousand years and be perfectly, blissfully happy every second!"
Line 2:
"[with a thin smile] Don't spoil the evening, darling."
Line 3:
"And who are you to criticize anyone's personal life? After your tawdry little adventure with those dwarves."

King Cole

King Cole
Name: King Cole
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
(appears 60-70) Mayor of Fabletown, jolly, a little scattered, but with enough gravitas to handle also being the Narrator for the opening of the story. (American or British, up to you, age between Adult and Senior)
IMPORTANT NOTE: The first Cole Line is some of the opening lines of the episode, and I'd like to give it the feeling of Cole reading a ancient and sacred text. A solemn prayer, even. Think the prologue from Fellowship of the Ring (Cate Blanchett's monologue, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOulsEGvSCo), a little slower, lower, and with a little more gravitas than Cole might otherwise sound.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"Once upon a time, we were a thousand disparate kingdoms, spread over a hundred worlds. From the grandest lord to the lowliest peasant girl, we were, for the most part, strangers to one another. It took an invasion to unite us."
Line 2:
"Do you think he may be in over his head? After all, he wasn't a detective in the old lands. A beast of the most unruly sort. Killer. Is this job too much for him?"
Line 3:
"Well, Miss White, this is certainly...an aggressive plan of action."

Beast

Beast
Name: Beast
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
(appears 30-40) Husband of Beauty. Gallant, loyal, pleasant. Currently (for this pilot) mid transformation into a beast. (American or British, up to you, baritone, the first two lines in this audition need to sound like you have teeth that are too big for your mouth. The third line is read normally.)
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"I'm not blaming you, darling, but I seem to turn back to a beast to the extent that you're mad at me."
Line 2:
"It's this transitional period that's the problem. My fangs grow in before my mouth can get big enough to fit them. So I speak funny."
Line 3:
"They cost a fortune we don't have. Why go into hock to win more lost lands and another useless title? We already have those."

Line 2:
"We needed another pair of hands, Sheriff. Pinocchio's good for it. I promise. He won't say anything."
Line 3:
"Ladies, Miss White's only just arrived. You need an appointment!"

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
