Auditions for volunteer actors in films by Western Colorado University students will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16 from 5-6:30 p.m. at Western’s Studio Theatre on the ground floor of Taylor Hall. No experience is necessary, although proficient actors are welcome.

All ages are welcome to attend the audition and try their hand at acting. No prepared monologue is needed. The time commitment for filmmaking will be “around a handful of hours per part,” said Western professor of communication arts Jack Lucido.

Production dates will fall between mid-October through early November 2018. Filming times will likely be scheduled during evenings and weekends.

“These filmmakers have written engaging stories to be produced,” Lucido said. “Topics include grocery store science fiction, camping horror and friendship juxtaposed with homelessness.”

Film students are seeking to build a list of actors for this class as well as for future semesters and classes. Even if candidates are not cast this time around, they can get on a list to be considered for future productions.
