Rather Irregular Productions, an independent entertainment studio, is looking for actors and puppeteers to audition for a new comedy web series. Lacking experience in those categories? No problem! Instruction for both will be provided for those who want to learn. Keep reading for more details.

Your time to shine

If you’re an actor or puppeteer looking to be a part of a brand-new comedy web series, here’s your opportunity. Even if you don’t have experience in acting or working with puppets, instruction will be provided for you to be a part of this fun adventure.

The series, Lizard Manager’s Used Cryptids, is a comedy show about a Lizard Man who follows his dreams from the swamp to the “big” city of Crittersberg. Here he meets other cryptids like him with untapped talents. Realizing his gift of gab could help them out, he decides to start a cryptid talent agency and becomes the “Lizard Manager”.

“We’re very excited to begin production on this project that has been in the works for several months as a spinoff of Hall of Cryptids. We believe this is a great opportunity for talented members of our community to express themselves and learn new skills. We look forward to meeting you at auditions!”

Craig Isley, Founder, Rather Irregular Productions

Production for the show will begin May 1 and several episodes will be filmed and released on Rather Irregular Production’s Youtube channel. Plus, the episodes will be put together as a feature film to be submitted to film festivals.
