Get your drama hats on because two Connecticut companies, Atlantian Films and AspenDream Productions (the production companies) announced that they are casting for a new exciting docu-reality series called ‘The Cast’n Couch’©. The organizations have forged a partnership to scour acts across the state for their reality series about a casting agency that auditions numerous acts, only to realize that as much drama happens offstage as onstage.
This is a reality show. Every type of entertainer is welcome. The producers are looking for actors, skaters, magicians, contortionists, comedians, jugglers, clowns, dancers, and everything in between, including volunteers for extras. They are also looking for the company assistant, a 50’s to 60’, street-smart, sassy, comedic type and a very attractive female for another role 20’s to 30’s, TBA, as well as mob, thug, and street smart types. Applicants should be outgoing with big personalities and be able to take direction. Ability to take direction and be on time is critical. Film crews will be on location at the time of the audition.
