CASTING

We're looking for actors to play three parts - here are the details of each character:
1. Prince William - late 20s, white, balding, posh and a bit witless - but bursting with charm. You will need to be able to think on your feet, and react to the attentions of the press in character. You should also look like the real deal.
2. Kate Middleton - late 20s, white, bubbly brunette, though perhaps a bit vanilla, you will also need to be able to think on your feet and react to the attentions of the press in character. You will need to look just like our new princess.
3. The Waiter - A man with a plan. Dark hair, swarthy,  race open - possibly South East Asian or of Arab descent, fit, healthy and speedy. 20s - early 40s.

There will be two rehearsals, a walk-through of the location and a costume/make-up fitting, as well as an all-day commitment on the 21st June. Each actor will be paid £100 for their work.

If you think you're right for one of these parts, please send your headshot and resume to casting.mamaproductions@gmail.com.

WEDDING NIGHT - SYNOPSIS

Prince William and his new bride Kate have had a long day, and all they want is a bit of peace to celebrate their wedding night – alone. But when the paparazzi slip under the noses of their bodyguards and start banging on their hotel door, the knot the couple have just tied begins to fray. With the assistance of a hotel waiter, they seek escape through the hotel, desperate to shake the flashes and cries of the press. But can this waiter be trusted to look after the newly married couple, or does he too want a piece of the action?
