The Starstruck I-CON Talent Search is ON!
March 17, 2011 Comments Off
Yep, you heard that right! As previously announced, I-CON 30 at Stony Brook University, Long Island, New York will host a world-premiere Starstruck performance recorded before a live audience at the Javitz 100 theatre. Written by Elaine Lee and directed by AC co-founder William Dufris, this 20 minute audio drama will unveil a previously unknown chapter in the diabolical history of Starstruck nemesis Verloona Ti, who will be portrayed by Denise (Æon Flux) Poirier, reprising her role from our debut AudioComics Company release of Starstruck, with two performances on the afternoon of April 16 (exact times TBA). Other actors will include Lance Roger Axt, Brennan Lee Mulligan, the ladies of the NYC-based sketch comedy group Pink Axe (Jaime Andrews, Angelica Pasquini, and Jessica Rionero), and…YOU! If you are attending I-CON, that is…
We are seeking two voices from the 2011 I-Con attendees to portray numerous small roles in Starstruck: “Running Scared.” Actors would be needed for a short rehearsal the evening before, and you must (we repeat, must) be available the morning of the recording. There will be a total of three performances: the aforementioned two and a dress rehearsal. Interested I-Con attendees must submit the following before April 5, 2011: a three minute audition piece showing that you can do character voices. You can read/dramatize a section from your favorite science fiction novel or comic book, but your audition should feature at least three different and distinct character voices. A simple Mp3 or video recording made on your computer will suffice; it does not have to be professionally produced! And yes, we will be checking with the I-CON attendee database to confirm that you are going to be at I-CON that weekend. Send your audition to firstname.lastname@example.org; audition pieces will be judged by Elaine Lee and Bill Dufris, and you will be contacted/sent the script via e-mail before I-CON (please make sure your e-mail address is current). Up the Brigades at I-CON this April!
