Below are video submission instructions for sending the requested self-tape to simon max hill casting. Read through everything below, and then send us your video! Before submitting, please make sure that you’ve already given us phone+email to reach you at our other submissions site, HERE.

We’re interested in kids with all kinds of interests and backgrounds, and are looking to find individuals who will bring their own energy and life to these roles. We will also be using these submissions as a starting off point for casting various other smaller speaking and background roles so if your child does not fit these exact specs please feel free to still apply!

Here’s short descriptions for each of the roles. Please find the audition scenes below each description!

DODGER (14-17, male) – the eldest child in a single parent family, Dodger has been a de facto father figure for his siblings, and is especially protective of the youngest, Denim; he has a fractious relationship with his Mom’s new boyfriend, Wayland; stays in shape and hopes to enlist in the military; like all teenage boys, he experiments with what it means to be a man, vaping and displaying false bravado.

PERI (10-14, female) – sassy, outspoken tween; she can be a tomboy or fairly girly, depending on the circumstances… her tastes are still being formed; has a fraught relationship with her Mom, Dolores, who’s trying to mold her in her image, but whose path she doesn’t want to follow; isn’t scared to challenge authority but has a hidden vulnerability and deep down longs for parental love; and while she may act grown-up sometimes, she’s still just a child.

DENIM (5-8, male) – creative, sensitive, sweet-natured and gentle; prefers dresses to pants and loves things most people would consider ‘girly’; much happier playing with dolls than toy trucks; has a fierce fight with his Mom when she tries to make him wear pants; forges a quick and genuine bond with his Mom’s new boyfriend, Wayland, and forces him to confront whether he’s ready to be a father.

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE RECORDING YOUR AUDITION.
