Call For Auditions - Pilot For Series

A pilot for a new, Chicago-based anthology series, Chickweed Magik, is in pre-production! 

Titled Wannabe, the debut episode tells the story of a quartet of Black cheerleaders, approaching high school graduation and adulthood.  When their bus breaks down on the way to a competition, they sneak off into the woods and lose their way - only to encounter a mysterious girl, guarding a fountain she claims can grant immortality.

We are looking for women-identifying performers, ages 18 to 21 (or able to play high school age), to fulfill five characters; one lead, a major supporting role, two supporting roles and one minor supporting role. 

Four characters are Black/of African diaspora and one is white/caucasian. All roles are speaking and will require at least moderate memorization of scripted dialogue. First-time actors are encouraged to audition as well as those with training or professional experience!

We are accepting self-tape auditions from now until June 7th!
