Canada Wide Casting for Anne of Green Gables (Movie of the Week)
Hello, I am hoping that it may be possible for you to post the following message on your web page for me. At this time we will only be holding auditions in Halifax but we will welcome reels or self-tapes from interested parties. This is a Canada wide Casting Call and I would greatly appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide to get the word out as time is short. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
Thanks in advance!

Casting Call - We will be holding local auditions for the lead role in an upcoming Movie of the Week, “Anne of Green Gables” that will film in Toronto in late May until mid-June. These auditions will be held on February 21st in Halifax. This is a Canada wide Casting Call and we are organizing the Call for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. We will be joined by Jon Comerford in Halifax on the 21st for the auditions. We are looking for the following:
ROLE: (LEAD) - Slight Caucasian Female
Age range: 11 to 14 years but must look 11.
Character is described as “a lively girl with blazing red hair. Smart beyond her years, eager, and wildly imaginative, Anne has had to grow up quickly. She is compassionate and vulnerable, though sometimes fiery. She speaks rapidly and excitedly, and is easily lost in her own thoughts and fantasies.”
This is a Union show, however; both Union and Non-Union talent will be considered.
If you would like to have your child considered, please be sure that travel to Toronto during the above dates will not be a problem should it be necessary for call backs or filming.
Please remember that a Minor needs to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
All submissions need to be sent to me before Friday February 13th. Please forward a current head shot (this is a must) and resume to email@example.com. Also please include parents name and contact information.
Auditions will be by appointment only in Halifax.
We will accept reels and/or self tapes for PEI residents due to the distance.
Audition locations, times and sides will be sent out after the 13th.
As I mentioned above, this is a Canada wide Casting Call, please feel free to cross-post and share with your friends and family, school drama clubs, theatre groups etc. Anne is out there somewhere and it would be wonderful if she was right here in the Maritimes!
Parents if you have any questions please send me a quick email and make sure you include your telephone numbers.
