The Hive Collaborative is pleased to announce auditions for ENTER THE HEX, a live-streaming series that helps viewers of all ages see why role-playing tabletop games like D&D are exploding in popularity.
We have roles for every level of gaming experience, from expert to complete novice who is game to dive right in and have fun with it.
About the Show
The show will originate from the stage of The Hive Collaborative in Provo, Utah in front of a live audience. It will be streamed live and made available for playback on demand. The pilot season of the show will run for five consecutive Friday and Saturday evenings, beginning April 12 and ending May 11. Some roles require a commitment to each of the evening performances. Others require only a commitment to four of the evenings. For the pilot season, compensation will consist of a modest travel stipend.
Roles & Schedule
Each team of four players will have a captain, who will provide in-game instruction and encouragement to team members. Team captains should be experienced in role-playing tabletop games. Team captains will be part of the play each night of the pilot season and, as such, must be available for the full run of the show.
Each team will consist of four players, each of whom will be featured for at least one Friday/Saturday pair of shows. Players need not be experienced in tabletop role-playing games, but should be willing to gamely dive right into their character and determine the extent they want to follow the advice of their team captains. In addition, one player for each team will be chosen by the audience to return to play on the final Friday/Saturday of the show. As such, players must be available for one of the following pairs of dates: April 12-13, April 19-20, April 26-27 & May 3-4. In addition, all players must be available for the final two nights: May 10-11, should they be selected by our audience to return.
In addition to the performance nights, team captains and players will be required to attend game-play instruction rehearsals during several evenings prior to the game nights. Dates and times to be negotiated.
All roles are available. Auditions for team captains will be held March 8 from 7-9 pm and March 9 from 10 am to noon. Auditions for players will be held March 22 from 7-9 pm and March 23 from 10 am to noon. Other audition time slots and dates may be scheduled as needed.
What to Prepare
Team captains. Those auditioning for one of the four team captains should come familiar with the four teams descriptions (see below) and be prepared to play a brief simulated tabletop role-playing game as captain of one of the teams. Pick a team that sounds like it would be a good fit.
Players. Those auditioning to be a player should come up with a character name and profile as a player on one of the four teams (see descriptions below). We’ll ask you to take a minute to share with us a little about your character as that character. We may then present verbally present a situation to you and ask you to respond to it as your character would.
Four teams will compete for the Hex Cup:
