Actors needed for character comedy sketches - Manchester

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

I have written 40 minutes worth (approx running time) of various character comedy sketches. I am hoping to begin filming for these sketches late July time. I do not have a filming schedule as of yet, but the successful applicants will get the schedule in plenty of time before we start filming. Auditions are going to be held on Saturday 9th June at a location in Manchester. I can only pay travel expenses to successful actors. I will also provide food and drink, and all actors will get an equal share in the sales of the sketches. The character comedy sketches will be shown at Independent Cinema's. I am currently working on another film of my own, which is being shown at independent cinemas, which is why the auditions date is quite far off. Please Note - All the filming locations for these sketches will be in the Manchester/Greater Manchester area. The only areas in England that I am willing to consider actors from (for auditions also) is; Manchester,Trafford Area, Altrincham, Liverpool, Sheffield. So please do not apply if you are from outside these areas. I am not accepting any video auditions. I want to audition actors face to face.
