Please prepare a reading of the audio file given to you in the callback email. 

We'd like to hear you reach for that voice as accurately as you can - paying particular attention to rhythms, intonations, pitch, pacing, literally as much as you can gather about this person's vocal patterns.

We chose a piece that is vocally different from your own voice (which could be anything from change in rhythm, change in pace or change in speaking inflection) as EL Stories cast members are called upon to play a variety of characters. 

PLEASE DO NOT FOCUS ON MEMORIZATION. We are interested in how you can accurately represent this individuals voice and, through their voice, how well can you communicate and honor the story.

Please email me with any questions at  casting@waltzingmechanics.org
