I’ve been asked many questions in regards with the show and the upcoming auditions. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions.
Q. When are the auditions and what time are they?
A. The auditions are being held on July 16th & 17 at Frequency Night Club (296 Richmond Street West, Downtown, Toronto) from 2 to 9 pm. You do not have to be there on both days. Come on either date, anytime between 2 to 9 pm. The earlier, the better… it will be crowded!
Q. Do I have to sign up for the auditions?
A.You simply RSVP on our Facebook event page. That’s all.
Q. Will we get paid if we make the cast?
A. YES, of course! It’s a job at the end of the day. A fun job ;)
Q. When will you shoot the series?
A. Once we have confirmed our ideal cast for the debut season. I assume sometime late 2010 or winter/spring of 2011.
Q. Are we auditioning in front of the crowd or only for the judges?
A. You will be one-on-one with our celebrity judges.
Q. Who are the judges?
A. Canadian celebs!
Q. How many people will be selected in the cast?
A. Eight cast members from different backgrounds and sexual orientations.
Q. Can actors apply? What about unions?
A. Anyone can apply. Union, or non union, everyone is welcome.
Q. What’s the show about?
A. Eight cast members from different backgrounds and sexual orientations move into a house together, and learn how to not step on each other's toes, or to step on it! It’s not a competition; it’s all about their differences!
Drama, drama, and more drama is what the cast will be facing! It’s your crazy girlfriend vs. boyfriend vs. your ex who is now dating your friend who has a crush on your boyfriend. This show is a drama with fist pump, and attitude spilling all over your couch!
The cast will be going to “unique” underground parties where surprises will be awaiting them. The viewers…BEWARE! The show might not be so G-rated! ‘WINK, WINK’
Q. What will the auditions be like?
A. The auditions will occur in a lounge-like atmosphere. There will be a cash bar, and lots of opportunities for mingling, while our host, Susie Iliyan, will be going around, meeting, and talking to people. She's our better looking version of Ryan Seacrest, from American Idol, who follows up with the contestants of the auditions to ask them questions.
Then, the judges will have one-on-one meetings with you. It'll be your chance to tell us why you think you’re the STAR for this show. Feel free to bring along anything that will best describe your personality, or shows us your skills and/or talent! We love to see what you’ve got! It is all about you, you and more you!!!
After the auditions, our crew will stay behind to party with you at Frequency Night Club from 10 pm to midnight where we’ll have the camera’s rolling to catch any last minute misbehaviour ;) Watch out fans!
