Hair must be natural colors and conservative. Ladies should be prepared to use curlers. If you can submit in 1950’s type clothing and hairdo’s, that will be a HUGE benefit for you!

And all the background said, “____!”. Well, they pantomimed an “Amen”. Seeking conservative-looking types. Seeking people to portray church-goers with great natural-colored hair. If you can submit in 1950’s type clothing and hairdo’s, that will be a HUGE benefit for you!

Yes, we spelled that correctly! We are seeking fit males over the age of 18 to portray coal miners. Gold-diggers. 49ers. Prospector-types. No actual experience is necessary, but if you happen to have mining experience, you should include it in your submission. And feel free to dress the part, and submit those photos...and people say, "there are no miner roles in film/stage..."
