Call for cast auditions 
are now closed

Thank you for all of your submissions. The auditions for 2021 have now come to a close.

A shortlist will be decided by the 15th of April. Should you be successful in making the shortlist you will be contacted individually via email by no later than the 16th of April 2021. If you do not receive an email from us, unfortunately this means that you have been unsuccessful in making it onto our shortlist. The decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Covid-19 may prevent us from live auditions with shortlisted candidates in Johannesburg, in which case we will arrange virtual auditions. This length of this process will depend on how many candidates we shortlist, but we expect this step to be completed by the end of May 2021.
