Welcome to The South Devon Players Theatre & Film Casting Agency
Please be aware this is for performers with a proven track record only, whom we can vouch for in professionalism and reliability.
These actors are seeking speaking, named roles.
If you have a general casting call, we are willing to pass it to theatre/ film company members, and to wider contacts, please note that applications from a wider membership will gain responses from people with various current levels of experience, including first-timers.
This agency formalizes our old casting service, which began in our first years of running, where we started being approached for film and TV work, by such names as the BBC and Disney. We are in the process of adding all our members who are interested in being represented.
This is also open to student and low-budget indiefilm or theatre, as some of our members are happy to be represented for "expenses only" work, to build portfolios and showreels (please note that in such cases, photos / showreel footage MUST be supplied, alongside any financial expenses incurred, and that we will not accept unpaid work from known large companies who do have the facility to pay performers. )
We have found, as performers based in a regional area, that often film and theatre projects in the area, cast from London, and that there is little opportunity for representation for local performers who are seeking to start their careers. Speaking to some companies based here in the Southwest. , they have been, in fact, delighted to find out, that we are starting this service off, more locally to them!
Eligibility to sign to the casting agency
In order to provide a high-quality reliable service to all production teams who use us, in order to provide the best possible opportunity for Torbay-based performers, we have to be extremely selective on whom we represent.
In order to be eligible to join our agency, a performer must
* Have completed at least one theatre or film production with us, in good standing (reliable attendance, courteous behaviour to others, professional-level performance skills)
* Have clear headshots, examples of video work (ideally a showreel) and be able to produce video auditions if needed (we can provide these free of charge).
All signed performers are expected to maintain the highest standards of professional, pleasant behaviour on any project, whether it be a student project, or amdram, through to an international feature film, and whether they are an extra or the lead (or anything between).
