South Africa’s longest-running drama franchise Soul City gets a new spin-off in January next year. The Soul City Insitute (who create Soul City) and O.M.A.H.D. films are producing a new youth talk show called Rise which will air on SABC2.
The show’s been conceptualised but the one thing that’s missing is a presenter. The show’s on a search for one and it could be you.
Open auditions are happening in Johannesburg for one day only: tomorrow (Friday, 26 September).
Who’s the show looking for?
A dynamic, opinionated and strong-willed female leader between the ages of 18 and 25.
You will need to:
Be able to speak more than two official South African languages.
Be comfortable in the spotlight.
Be able to engage in controversial conversations.
Be available to shoot in Johannesburg for the entire production at your expense.
Auditions are happening at the Joburg Theatre in Braamfontein.
You need to take an ID or document proving your identity and age.
Auditions start at 08h00 and run until 14h00. Callbacks are happening in the afternoon.
The audition will be impromptu and spontaneous so there’s no need to prepare.
