Auditions for the August 2009 Harvardwood TV Pilot Showcase will be held THIS WEDNESDAY, July 15 from 6-10 PM at Blankspaces (near La Brea and Wilshire). The Showcase will be held Tuesday, August 18th, tentatively at the WGA. The director is Nick Weiss (SENIOR SKIP DAY), and the casting director is Liz Shoai (AVATAR, "Psych"). The showcase is an invitation only event featuring scenes from four original TV pilots by Harvardwood writers (15 min each). And as a joint effort with the new Harvardwood Actors Program - we're giving preference to Harvardwood actors for the cast. Check out the website - http://bellwethershowcase.org/Read more
The Harvardwood TV Pilot Showcase will be happening in August, featuring staged readings of the first acts of four pilot scripts, selected from this year's Harvardwood Pilot Writing Program.
We need an energetic, organized stage manager to wrangle and coordinate communications between our writers and actors, and oversee three rehearsals and one performance evening - so must be available in late July thru Mid-August.
No pay available, but great short-term opportunity for someone who wants to gain experience as a stage manager or assistant director and meet a great group of writers and actors! Some experience in these areas would be preferable.
