Subject: Casting for Latino Voter Registration Public Service Announcement

Idiom Union is casting to shoot a Latino voter registration public service announcement that will be made available for broadcast on Arizona television stations.

A Latino family of six is seated around a kitchen table.  Two grandparents, two parents, and two college aged "children" are talking and eating breakfast.  One of the children has just turned 18 and wants to know how to register to vote.  One of the parents says that it is a waste of time as all of the politicians are the same -- they are all just out for themselves.  However, one of the grandparents steps in and says that's right, they are all the same in that if you don't register to vote all of the politicians will ignore you and if you do register they all will do what they have to do to get your vote.  Then the other parent explains to the family (and the audience) how to register.

The ages of the actors are somewhat interdependent (that is, if we cast older parents we will cast older grandparents), but the two college aged children should be between 16 and 25 (male or female), the two parents (one male and one female) should be between 35 and 55,  and the two grandparents (one male and one female) should be between 60 and 85.

We will audition for all roles on Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Historic YMCA (738 North Fifth Avenue) (University and Fifth Avenue).

Respond here to schedule a time to audition.  Indicate the best time for your audition and provide a resume and head shot (if you have them).  There is no monetary compensation, but each actor will receive a digital copy of the public service announcement.
