AUDITIONS for young actors are being held for a film which is being set in Newry.

Wildfire is a feature film written and to be directed by Cathy Brady set in her hometown of Newry. She's the award-winning film-maker of Small Change, Rough Skin, Morning and the first season of Can't Cope, Won't Cope.

The auditions are being held this Saturday, September 22 (9am-1pm) and Sunday, September 23 (10am-2pm) at Multi-Purpose Room 3, Newry Leisure Centre, Cecil Street.

The only requirement is that those auditioning are able to swim. Casting Director, Nick McGinley, said, "Any parent who would normally bring their kids down to the pool for a swim on a Saturday or Sunday morning could call in to see us before or after their dip and we'd get the youngsters on camera for a quick chat and making up a scene."

The character descriptions are as follows:

GIRL, 10: Border Northern Ireland accent. Protective big sister, wise beyond her years, always looking out for her younger siblings.  
GIRL, 8: Border Northern Ireland accent, tomboy, messer  
BOY, 6: Border Northern Ireland accent, chatterbox, inquisitive and open.

There is no need to prepare for the audition, no experience is required and it should be a bit of craic for the pre or post-morning swim kids.

If your child is interested in taking part then e-mail or text to make an appointment: nick@ / +353 86 8239035 or call in after swimming club.
