Other roles on offer include
Role age: 20 - 45 years old
He should be able to play the electric guitar but needs to be able to make it sound awful and screechy. Perhaps a bigger guy in terms of frame would be good so the guitar looks smaller in his hands. He must have a good personality and be able to take direction. We're open on the age here - he could be in his 30s or maybe a guy in his early twenties with a more nerdy look who thinks he can shred just like Slash.
Role age: 25 - 50 years old
She needs to be good at singing, but then can intentionally hit a few bad notes. Maybe with an operatic range so we can enter the sting as she holds a not so pitch perfect sustained note. I envisage someone a little too old to be wearing the dress they have on. 45, single and with 12 cats? But once again, we are open on the age. We need someone fun and game for this role. Let us know about any singing experience when applying.
Hip Hop Dude
Role age: 19 - 26 years old
We need a skinny ass white boy. Early twenties. Believes he’s going to rap his way out of the ghetto that is Blackrock. He should have self confidence and attitude but be absolutely dire at rapping. Skinny is a must. I want his wife beater and jeans to be hanging off him. He needs to be able to rap a little, at least string one badly phrased ‘lyrical bomb’ together.
Saw playing lady
Role age: 23 - 28 years old
She should be mid twenties and have all the appearance of a classically trained musician. She should seem quite upper class and ‘at one with her music’ which happens to be playing a saw. If you can play the saw let us know though not a necessity. Maybe a trained musician for this role like a Cellist? Let us know any relevant experience when applying.
Role age: 18 - 80 years old
The additional roles are a bit more open. Could be a dreadlocked guy playing the didgeridoo. A long haired bearded rocker who doesn’t mind roaring his or her lungs out. One Man Band person. Unusual musical street performers. Boy band, girl bands. Someone with a singing dog. Let us know any skills you have which may be relevant.
