Chance Film Productions has announced the final auditions for the feature film Candles.
Auditions are to take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 27 in Louisville at the Crown Plaza Hotel, located at 830 Phillips Lane; and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 28 in Murray at the Murray State University campus, CFSB Center, located at 1401 US Hwy 121 North.
Roles to be filled include: Two for women, 25 to 35 years old; five for men, 30 to 45 years old; 80 for men and women of all ages; and 100 for children (girls) from 7to 15 years old. Underage girls must have a parent or guardian present.
Auditioners need to bring a resume (if they have one), a head shot and full length photo. A photographer will be present to take photos for those without snapshots, but be aware he does charge for services.
Candles is based on actual events that took place in 1977 when three young girls were raped and murdered at a Girl Scout camp in northeast Oklahoma. The story recreates the manhunt for the prime suspect Gene Leroy Hart and the circus like trial that followed.
What makes this film unlike any other suspense drama is that the true killer is revealed.
All filming will take place in Kentucky and be the first production to take advantage of the new 2015 incentive program recently passed by the state legislature.
The starring role of the newswoman reporter that covered the story is Kathryn Eastwood (daughter of Clint Eastwood), also starring John Schneider (Dukes of Hazard), Donny Boaz (TV series Dallas), Bobby Kerecz (Last Vegas) and Wes Studi (Dances With Wolves).
