Underground Cinema – Actors Wanted (Melbourne)

Underground Cinema is looking for new actors (m/f) to join their dedicated, hard-working, and infamous in-house troupe of talented performers!

The UGC Acting troupe holds weekly rehearsals for each Underground Cinema event several weeks prior to the production, often led by guest Directors. The troupe works as an ensemble – each performer bringing their own particular skills to the improvisational work done in rehearsals – so that we can bring the characters, history and sense of space and time of the chosen film to life.

Be prepared: production days can be long – with call times early allowing for professional hair & make-up and costume teams to do their awesome thing – but the thrill of improvising around a base structure, working with trained experienced performers & directors of a high caliber and bouncing off our AMAZING UGC audience makes it all worth it!

If you’ve got a history in improvisation, a passion to improve your craft and get in amongst the pulse of Melbourne’s art and performance scene – this is for you!

Although auditions will be workshop-based, and lead by members of the current ensemble, please prepare a monologue of your choosing to present to the troupe. There is no specifications regarding your chosen piece, just chose something that you enjoy and think shows your talents off best!

Audition dates:
Wed 22nd Feb 2012 between 7-10pm

Be prepared for:
A monologue presentation, physical warm up & theatre improvisation & 3 hours of attendance in total.

On the day bring:
A hard copy of your Acting CV & if possible a head shot (although not compulsory)

You will preferably be:
Experienced and or trained in acting/performance and want to further your skills in this field. You will also be hard working and be able to commit to a minimum of 3 events. This is a long-term project and a volunteer position.

If this is you then please email us by 5pm on the 20th Feb 2012 with the subject heading “ACTOR”, a cover letter including your contact phone number and attach your CV.

You will be contacted by phone to book you into the audition. GOOD LUCK!

P.S. Please ensure that you have read the full job description and website before calling with any queries. Thankyou. http://www.undergroundcinema.com.au

Sia May Return To Touring

Sia has been very vocal about her struggles with stage fright and touring, but in an interview with NME she admitted that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to maintain her hardline stance of not playing live.

“I’m seeing some crazy numbers,” she says, speaking about offers on the table ”When they keep coming I’m like, ‘is it worth it now?’ because it could mean that I don’t ever have to do anything again.”

Pharrell Williams Adds Children’s Book Author To His Resume

Pharrell Williams is a jack of all trades; a super producer, singer-songwriter, designer, giant hat enthusiast, and now, he can add author of children’s books to his already-long resume, signing a four book deal with Penguin Publishing, with his first book to be inspired by his hit song ‘Happy’.

“I’m humbled by the global success of Happy, but especially in awe of the song’s young fans… My collaboration with Penguin allows me to continue a dialogue with these children in a fresh, new way. We’re both committed to feeding the curiosity of young minds with imagination,” he said in a statement.
