Description:
[UPDATE: You may also email us audition submissions as we are aware of an issue with .mp3 files on BTVA]

Weekend Rockstar is an episode from a six part anthology series that is 100% non-profit, and aims to get younger people interested in theatre culture and the arts. It'll be released for free on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts and more. To anyone who participates in any episode in the series, you're entitled to free graphic design, sound editing or script editing services for your work - and a download of the complete episode for your portfolio!

We work with actors and ask for them to send us lines through an .mp4 file over email, as we have found it is the quickest method that is beneficial for the actors to do on their own time!

This episode is called 'Weekend Rockstar'. It is a deeply personal tale about a boy called Santiago Jones. With the world feeling as if it's collapsing, new friends introduce Santiago to a brand new world to escape in. The message of the play is that all things may pass, and that we're all good enough to find happiness.


The episode has adult themes, including the use of swearing!

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"Weíve been together since high school, we just enjoy singing together. It started out as a little bit of fun, but as soon as we gained traction online, things quickly changed for us."

The videos werenít half bad either, it sold me. It might be crazy to rush into this, but isnít that the fun of it?"
Line 3:
"That might feel true right now, but there are people who love you to death. When youíre done tomorrow, maybe come with us to that party tomorrow night? I get that you might not want to because of all the travellingÖ"

Line 3:
"He came up to me after a show and said he could offer the band some opportunities. I got his number, we rarely talk actually, Iím normally so busy. Is something wrong?"

Line 3:
"My friends are in a band and theyíre doing a gig tomorrow night over here. I have no one to go with, and weíve not hung out in awhile. Are you able to get the train over in time?"

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.
