Tinsel, the popular TV soap on MNET has announced that it’s auditioning for actors. The producers are opening up a once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone in Lagos to come to their open auditions. The successful candidates will join the drama series in season five.
If you think you have what it takes to join the likes of Gideon Okeke and Damilola Adegbite, then come to the Protea Hotel on 1 Mogambo Close, Maryland Estate, Ikeja on Wednesday 4 April and Thursday 5 April from 7am.
Tinsel head writer, Tunde Aladese advises interested candidates,“We are looking for fresh new acts that show acting strength and stand out from the crowd. Come with something prepared (preferably a monologue from a play or a book). Avoid over used clichés (wicked step-mother, boy in conflict with his family because of a girl he loves, bitchy girl etc). Crying and phone talking are not acting so don’t bore the directors by taking this lazy route at the auditions.” Interested actors and actresses are also expected to come along with a 5 by 7 photograph to the audition.
For more details call 0803 650 9958 or 0706 2292 0149.
Increasingly popular with TV audiences around the continent, Tinsel is filmed in Nigeria and televised on STV, MNET,Africa Magic and Africa Magic Plus. Tinsel airs on weekdays at 19:00 E and 20:30 W.
