Auditions for Unwell, a Midwestern Gothic Mystery: a new audio drama serial from HartLife NFP.

HartLife NFP, the creators of the audio drama serial Our Fair City, will be holding auditions for their new flagship show Unwell on Sunday, February 18th and Saturday, February 24th, from 11am until 5pm.

We are currently seeking voice actors of all ethnicities (especially people of color) and genders (especially trans people). Some roles have specified genders, races, cultural backgrounds, or sexualities and some do not. We are committed to creating a diverse cast of talented actors and rewrites will be done with the final cast in mind.

Auditions will be held at HartLife Studios- 1934 N Campbell, Chicago IL, and will be short on-mic readings of sides, to be provided before auditions.

To set up an 15 minute audition slot, please send an email with resume attached to [email protected].

Chamberlain

A tape just marked “Chamberlain,” with several unpleasant words scratched out.  Hmmm.

==================

We’ll be going on our mid-season break over the month of January, but we’ll still have bi-weekly releases- coming up next, blooper reels from the first half of Season Eight.

We’d also like to give a shout out to one of our Manager level Patreon backers- James Battle.  James- in recognition of your contributions to the HartLife Corporation, please be advised that all nutriment dolled out to you over the next fiscal will be Blueberry, which the actuaries have determined will be your favorite.  Enjoy, Loyal Policy- you’ve earned it.

If you want to join James and get your favorite flavor of nutriment, along with Our Fair City Ringtones, special bonus content, and more, become a backer for as little as $1 a month at www.patreon.com/hartlifenfp.

Return to the Tunnels

I regret, dear listeners, that we must descend into that den of iniquity- the post-flood Tunnels. Perhaps some wisdom can be gained here, despite the direly un-Corporate nature of the locale?
