Percy Jackson Webseries Auditions

Casting Call for Percy Jackson

A new Percy Jackson webseries is gearing up to begin filming and there are a lot of roles up for grabs. Casting directors are currently casting roles for the first three episodes of a webseries based on Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books. The acting casting call is looking for male and female actors who are local to the New England area. Those who aren’t local are able to submit if they are willing to pay for their own transportation and accommodations during filming. Auditions are now being held for lead, featured and extra roles. The roles in this casting notice are all for lead and supporting roles.

About Percy Jackson

The series follows a 12-year-old boy named Percy Jackson, the demigod son of Poseidon, and his friends from Camp Half-Blood.

What They Are Looking For

Casting directors are holding auditions for the following roles.

If you don’t see a role that fits you, we will be posting a casting call for featured extras and extras soon and (hopefully!) more casting calls for lead roles if the first three episodes are successful. We are hoping to cast actors who live in New England, but out-of-state auditions are still welcome. All actors must have reliable transportation to and from auditions, table reads, character photography sessions, and filming locations.

Note: Eye color and hair color are not as important, so feel free to submit for a character even if you have a different eye or hair color. But, actors with the correct eye and hair color will be given priority. Also, the age range is not exact. If you do not fit in the listed age range but feel like you would be a good fit for the character, you will still be considered. Also, this is a very low budget production, and it would never be able to happen if we don’t get help from the actors. It would help us a lot if you could pay for most of your own props. The purchases needed for each character are listed under the character description. The purchases will be kept with the rest of the props and will be brought to set by the producers (except for clothing items). If the prices are too much, you can still submit. We are willing to work out pricing with you. We apologize for asking for you to help pay, but again, this could never happen without your help.

More Information:

Filming will start in March 2017 on Fridays, weekends, and school vacations

Before we film each episode, we will meet on a Friday or weekend to read through the script

Some episodes require sword fighting. For those episodes, we will choreograph the fight scenes on the same day as the script read-through

If we decide to continue the series, filming will continue throughout the summer and possibly early fall. Also, if we continue past the first three episodes, we hope to create at least two more seasons. Season 2 will be filmed in March 2018 and Season 3 in March 2019

Character photography will take place on one weekend in February or March. If we continue with the series, we will have more photography sessions on various weekends throughout filming

We will try our best to work around actors’ schedules, but you will need to have mostly open availability

Actors will be in charge of getting their own transportation, unless we travel outside of New England

Note: This series is being produced by high school students. We will not be using the best quality equipment
