Hello and welcome to one of our shoutouts for projects casting around the U.K. As always there’s a mix of opportunities for all ages, abilities, and locations but do remember to check if you fit the bill before applying. Although we make every attempt to verify castings before we hit publish, please ensure that you do your own research before firing off those headshots and Backstage links.

“The Sojourn”

Sci-fi drama specialists Spacedock are casting their upcoming audio drama project, “The Sojourn.”

This original science fiction web series takes place in a “small, distant star cluster.” With depleting space and resources, the humans make a last ditch effort to explore a new, supposedly uninhabited nebula. The show explores the story of the expedition and their fight for survival.

The team is producing a 20-minute audio drama pilot with a motion comic that will be published on YouTube. You’ll need a voice reel to apply for the available roles, listed below.

Croft, for male talent, aged 18–40, is a cheerful and down-to-earth engineer who brings comic relief and charm to the most stressful situations. An Australian accent is preferred for this role.

Meds, for female talent, aged 18–40, is a sardonic and dry-humoured medic. She’s the “straight guy” to comic character Croft.

Vadric, for a male actor, aged 18-60, is an inquisitor and consort to the Empress. He’s a skilled and loyal warrior. The team is looking for a voice with gruff, wise, and stoic qualities.

Recording takes place in Wrexham, Wales but the team is also open to performers delivering lines elsewhere if you have access to high-quality recording equipment. Each role pays £400.
