The Alden presents “Drive-Thru Drama,” a new model of theater (as far as we know!) in a COVID-19 world. “Drive-Thru Drama” is a social-distance theater format that brings people together for live theater from the comfort of their own cars.

Miss Sweetlesson (Female adult, any ethnicity) – An English teacher, very proper, who no one could ever reasonably expect to be a thief!

Mr. Dimwizzle (Male adult, any ethnicity)*** – Ash’s beloved, if hapless, history teacher, who also runs the Gumshoe Club, which Ash aspires to lead one day. ***Due to the staging requirements of the show, three performers will be cast as Mr. Dimwizzle.

TV Pilot “American Lodestar” Casting Call for Politically Driven Individuals in Richmond, Virginia!

Casting Director for a new TV pilot called “American Lodestar” is searching for talented, politically driven individuals in Richmond, VA that represent the diverse community of the city and the country.

The intention is to reduce the polarization that is happening across our country and connect people (pairing individuals as teams of two) who differ in their political views or personal lifestyle but who are willing to work together to solve some of Richmond’s most challenging economic issues from education to housing to employment. If two people want to apply as a team, most likely they’d live in different households. (More to come if interested.)

The first challenge is our education dilemma due to the pandemic and the economic divide among social classes. By hosting these conversations and presenting an opportunity to engage people, we get to inspire the public by releasing these videos and give voice to those who are passionate and eager to make a difference.

The final cast selections will be announced August 7, 2020.

Deadline to submit is August 4, 2020!
