The miniseries is in production in the area and is now casting locals who would like to work as paid background actors on the set. The show has a few upcoming scenes that will be needing actors that are also musicians for an upcoming scene. The scenes will be filming shortly and now we are accepting submissions for the roles listed below. Please note that an in person audition will be required for the roles.
The series will focus on the musicians’ rapid rise to fame during a time of political change and social unrest. “Million Dollar Quartet” is a Tony Award-winning musical based on the recording sessions that featured Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. We will be making an 8 part mini-series that will air on CMT later in 2016.
