Today’s top casting notices will be inducing nightmares with short film “Hide/Seek,” tickling viewers’ funny bones in Web series “AdFirm,” flexing those dramatic writing chops for feature film “A Very Minor Suicide,” and inpsiring center stage belts with “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.”

Childhood fun and games, this is not! “Hide/Seek,” a new short horror flick from writer-director Matt Newton is now casting its two doomed leads, Jake and Sherry, and supporting roles Tim and Sophie. What begins as a stroll through the woods with the couple quickly turns into a nightmare when Sherry goes missing. The central couple is described as Caucasian, aged 25–35; Tim, Sherry’s father, is a rough-around-the-edges 55- to 65-year-old; and Sophie is a 6- to 8-year-old child. This job pays $100 per day with meals, travel, lodging, and final copy provided. Auditions are being held in New York City on March 3 and March 4.

A Brooklyn-based digital media startup is getting the “Office” treatment from scripted Web series producer Jeremy Morris-Burke. But spoiler alert: This struggling startup is not as it seems. Seeing as it’s actually a well-cloaked cult of “Shaman-preneurs” who are running a profitable, illicit spirit trade, there’s certainly an interesting cast of characters at play here. “AdFirm” is seeking submissions from the New York City area for six supporting roles. This job pays $100 per day plus meals films for a late April, nine-day shoot in Brooklyn, New York.

This feature film from director JJ Koester is seeking submissions for all lead and supporting roles from around the country for a two-week August shoot in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The film follows a small, rural town that’s shaken by a resident’s suicide.

Auditions are being held Feb. 23 and March 1 in New York City for the nonunion national tour of this classic musical. Lead and supporting roles—including Ella and Topher—are being cast for the nine-month tour beginning September 2016 under director Mark Brokaw.
