We’ve been casting for Bread and Jam and we’ve met some truly lovely and interesting people. We still have a few available roles, and we will be putting casting calls out for those soon.
One of the main characters we need to find a suitable actor for is Owen Jones, he’s a Greengrocer, and Eileen’s bridegroom. He’s 32-ish, tall, and he probably has a beard, he’s friendly looking and he can dance. More information will be provided soon when we’re ready to audition.
Before we commence our search for Owen, and a few other people, we will be working on other aspects of our pre-production phase. It’s a busy time and also lots of fun. I’m not sure how I would manage all of the different tasks if I didn’t have help from an amazing team. My Cancer treatment is ongoing and I work from home most of the time.
Part of the fun on this project has been my search for musicians for our Wedding Reception scenes. I’m delighted to report that we have found The Fidgets, two wonderful musicians and they will be performing three tracks as well as providing our opening and closing sequence music Them, which is due to be released soon.
The Fidgets have forwarded copies of the music we’ve selected, and our choreographer, Charys Potter, has been creating dance sequences for our cast members.
I’ll be updating this blog regularly with information from behind the scenes of Bread and Jam, in the meantime, I’m going to carry on editing the script and liaising with our Casting Director, Dympna Jardine, as she searches for our bridegroom.
Bye for now…
