About the series: Audrey hates summer. She always has, especially since she usually has to spend it with her cousin, Mae. This time, Mae is on a boy craze, and she has a list of 10 things they must do this summer. Audrey wants to in order to have time to herself. This ends up getting Audrey and Mae into all kinds of trouble.


I prefer all characters to have a southern drawl because this takes place in Savannah, GA. However, if it can't happen, it can't happen. AMERICAN accents will be considered for the main cast. All others will be considered for extra roles.

Rules:

1. Have a clear mic. No background noise, no static, no voices, no fans, no heaters, no lawnmowers, no rabid cats, etc. I only want to hear YOU.

2. Use emotion. This is a series, not your English class.

2. Do 3 takes for each line. Not following this instruction can and will affect your chances of being casted.

3. Upload your audition to casting call club at the following link: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/salt-water-taffy

4. NO FACE AUDITIONS. I want AUDIO FILES ONLY.

5. Audition forEVERYONEof your gender. There are 2 female roles and 2 males roles. Charlotte is just as important as Audrey. Auditions are the time to try something new, and if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. It's not a big deal. I ultimately want you to experience trying something new in this audition, and maybe even this series.


NOTE: Please make sure you are comfortable with cursing/cussing, crying, screaming, and adult humor when recording.

Audrey


I am from Ohio and I'm visiting my cousin and aunt for the summer. I don’t usually let myself get attached to people too quickly, but there is something about that cherry tree out front that changed me for the summer. I have a weakness for wanting to pet stray animals.


1. (Monologue) Oh, summer. The one time of year we have no school, no responsibilities, and the freedom to spend our lives as hermits. Well, unless you’re me, of course. I would love to be like all of you, but alas, I am always banished to my aunt’s house in Savannah, where the beach is so close that you can smell the bitter saltiness of the ocean, the desperate crying of the seagulls above, the everlasting grimy, brackish fishy smell that taints the coastal shores of the southeast. To make matters worse, my cousin Mae is absolutely insane. And to make matters even more worse, I fell into a desperate anime love triangle that can only be escaped after twelve episodes, and it wasn’t even my fault! Can you believe it?! (Sighs) As always, this summer is a summer to be forgotten.

2. (Annoyed) How could I? With Mae around, it’s virtually impossible to even get a word in, and she ends EVERY. SINGLE. SENTENCE. LIKE. A. QUESTION. It’s annoying!

3. (Crying) how could I be so stupid?

4.*Scream like you're falling off of a bed* (DO THIS ONE LINE ONLY ONCE PLEASE)


Charlotte:


This woman must be a saint to raise Mae… or maybe not. Again, another stupid *southern accent*. She’s thrifty to the point of having OCD. She’s always at least 10 minutes early to anything. She’s like superwoman or something. She also seems to be completely oblivious to the fact that her daughter is a love-obsessed whore, but that’s just me.

  1. (Excited) I’ve missed you so much! (She hugs Audrey.) Well, come on inside. Y’all don’t want to be stuck outside in this heat.

  2. (Worried) Do you know what’s wrong with Mae? She seems really quiet. I’m worried. She’s usually so full of life and energy.


*Note: The extra in episode 0 will reappear in 12 and the one in episode 1 has multiple monologues.*


Males:


Liam:


This kid is an awkward gamer nerd. Before he introduced himself to me, he asked me what my favorite porno was. MAJOR TURN OFF. However, he was just kind of there for me after the fact, and I really, really like him. The problem is…. Well… Oliver… Also, he hates the feel of glass AND he excessively uses initials or acronyms for the common and uncommon things, and just blatantly refuses to explain them.

1. (Annoyed, oblivious) Well, she totally D.G.A.F. about anything, so it’s pretty obvious that part of her just wants to die.

2. (Suddenly a noble knight in shining armor) Please forgive me, Your Majesty. I fear that I have not introduced myself, and if we’re going to be stuck on this flight for three hours together, we might as well be friends.

3. (Comforting) I know, kitten. I know. It’ll be okay.


Oliver:


He seemed like a hunk at first. He was so sweet, kind, talented, and smart. Then, something happened. Out of nowhere, he began to compulsively interrupt people telling stories to interject facts about the story that he or she only knows because they have been told the story before, not because they were involved with it. Do you want to talk about something more annoying than Mae? It was downhill from there.

  1. (Telling Mae to go away) Yes. It’s code for 912-GET-LOST. You’re too young for me, kid. Go back with your parents.

  2. (Flirting) Well, maybe I just want a pretty girl to look at while I drink my coffee and write my novel.

  3. (Smooth AF) Oh, please. The only number I actually want is yours.


Deadline: February 14, 2016 at 3:00 PM USA EST (New York City or Washington DC's time zone)

Oh, and I forgot. Please let me know if you're okay with being an extra. Extras are really important for some scenes.
