CASTING CALL CLOSED
About Us: Tales of the Forgotten Fiction Network is a newish indie organization, run by four diverse women. We create original and fandom stories through the female gaze. We’ve had great success with our first show (Legacy A Star Wars Audio Drama) and now we’re creating more stories
Show Summary: A Fairy Tale for Adults is the story of Colin and Nia, two completely ordinary parents, going through a separation. One day, they take their children Allie and Ethan on a family outing and Colin and Nia get teleported to a dimension where magic is real. Put on trial for the crime of wrongful parenting because they don’t teach their kids magic, Colin and Nia must go on a quest in a magical forest to find a unicorn, and the lost pieces of themselves.
Daniel – Daniel aka Code Name Flip, is a cricket and the narrator. While the character in my brain was male, I’m opening up this casting call to anyone, male, female, or NB. It’s easy to change his name. Daniel is our storyteller so the VA must be engaging, and have great inflection and tone. I want to hear your inner child as you dig into these lines and tell me the story of two people finding magic and love again.
Ethan – The Crofts 12 year old. A very smart young man who wishes his parents still believed in all the magical things the world has to offer. Mixed race.
Thalion – 12 year old Elf from the land of Meiketh. Happy kid. Could be male/female/NB
Calanon – Elder Elf and Thalion’s parent. Could be male/female/NB
Charlie – A Malak. Shapeshifters. Police Force of the land of Meiketh. Human looking with a bushy tail like a siberian huskies. Charlie is kind, patient and sympathetic to Colin and Nia’s plight. Male.
Raziel – Archangel. Very serious. So serious. Stern, dramatic, voice. Could be Male/Female/NB
