Yesterday we received the following information from Liam Martin, Public Affairs Facilitator for the Manitoba Teachers’ Society. I know of white a few aspiring actors out there in the ranks of the Association, so please sign up – we’d love to see some local talent on the tube!

In addition to the many talents you possess as a teacher, are you also an actor? Because we need to find the next member to feature in our upcoming Manitoba Teachers’ Society ad!

In the past we’ve cast teachers in both background and – what the industry calls – silent-on-camera roles. But this spot will require delivering lines to camera. So warm up those vocal chords.

The casting and production will all be taken care of by our long-standing ad partners at The NOW Group…who will be working with Frank Digital (and their other production suppliers) to make it all happen.

The spot is being shot on Saturday January 9th, with casting happening on Tuesday December 22nd.

If you’re available on both dates and interested in auditioning, please contact Lori Stefaniuk at Next Casting (nextcasting@shaw.ca, 204.298.0878). Email her your name, contact info and a recent photo. And please also make sure to tell her that you are an MTS member, and what subject, grade or specialty area you teach.
