Our Fair City is excited to announce an open audition for Season Six of Our Fair City!
Due to scheduling conflicts, we will be recasting the role of CLEAR SKIES TIM for Season Six of Our Fair City.
For any interested actors: please submit the following sides (also posted below) in recorded .mp3 format to [email protected], no later than 4/23/2014. Please also be prepared to provide evening conflicts for the recording period. The bulk of recording for Season Six will be between September and October of 2014, with retake recording in November and a full-cast reathrough this May. There is a small honorarium attached to the role.
Please be advised- we are currently only considering Chicago area actors (or actors who would consider traveling to the Chicagoland area for recording). We recommend listening to episodes “Everything in its Place” and “Rise and Shine” to get a feel for the CLEAR SKIES TIM accent. We are looking for a vocal performance that is recognizably similar to the previous interpretations of the character.
Thank you–and we look forward to hearing your submissions! Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] with any questions.
CLEAR SKIES TIM AUDITION SIDE 1
ALISON: Tim, what’s the matter? You’ve been sighing into your console all day.
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: I’ve just been feelin’ sorta guilty… it’s just that Greyson and Jack are down in Field 22, up to their waists in… waste.
ALISON: At least they’ve got work.
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: But then there are all the other riggers who’ve haven’t gotten jobs. They’ve been waitin’ in the Reassignment lounge for weeks but with all the surplus power there ain’t no jobs to be had. They’ve been saying that they’re always being supervised, because, you know… they’re out of work!
ALISON: Oh, Tim. You just can’t see the big picture.
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: I can’t.
ALISON: No, you can’t. Pour me another cup.
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: Was that supposed to make me feel better?
ALISON: No. Now, how’s my tie?
CLEAR SKIES TIM AUDITION SIDE 2
SFX: CLEAR-SKIES TIM PUSHES a BUTTON. A MOTOR WHIRRS and the doors CREAK SHUT. A SLOSHING from a metal, liquid-filled tub farther down the gullet.
JACK: Hey Tim!
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: Ah! Jack – don’t scare me.
JACK: Sorry pal – hey leave em open wouldja? I’m going back in in a sec.
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: Uh uh. It’s not safe to leave the door to the Waste Field open.
JACK: It’s not safe to bathe in a tub of chemical disinfectant either, but I’m doin’ it.
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: Did Archie give you the idea to wash off in the Man-Dip?
JACK: Yeah. Where is he anyway?
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: He’s back in the Field. Throwin’ up globs of red stuff.
JACK: Eeeh. Think I’ll get out now. You on guard duty?
CLEAR-SKIES TIM: Yeah. Catch ya later.
