Casting Call for Season 3 of “Enter the Hex”

The Hive Collaborative is pleased to announce it is casting for ENTER THE HEX SEASON 3; The Ugly Deep, an online tabletop roleplaying gameprov series. 

Enter the Hex Show Logo

About the Show

The show will originate from the stage of The Hive Collaborative in Provo, Utah in front of a live studio audience. Season 3 will run for five Friday and Saturday evenings over six weeks, beginning January 17 and ending February 22, 2020 (note: no performances scheduled for Feb 14-15).

Roles & Schedule

Roles

Some pretty big changes have occurred in Throssia since Kesukara was overthrown. As such, changes have also taken place in the Hex. There will be no Guardian roles this season, and the Clan of Malthior has been reintroduced to the Hextant. All auditions will be for Champion roles with pre-designed characters.

Schedule

The Champions’ schedule will also be different this season. There will be a total of 15 champions cast. We will have 5 Champions (one from each clan) who will start off the show and play until they perish in battle or are otherwise lost to the quest. When this happens, the next Champion in line from that clan will step into their role and do the same. The first and second Champions are likely to have stage time, the third Champion may or may not. It may all depend on a roll of a die.

With this change, actors must be available for every week the run of the show and able to jump in with a days notice if the Champion before them has died. All actors will be compensated, regardless of stage time.

Audition Dates

Auditions for all roles will be held Friday, October 11 from 7-9 pm and Saturday, October 12 from 10 am to 1pm. Other audition time slots and dates may be scheduled as needed. 

What to Prepare

For your audition, we ask that you come prepared with a monologue, about 1 minute long, that shows your acting strengths. These monologues can be from a play, musical, TV show, or movie. You can also find pre-cut monologues here. We’re not looking for your memorization skills, so don’t worry about getting every word right. We’re mostly interested in how well you embody the character you’re portraying.

We may ask you to embody one of the Season 3 characters (we’ll have descriptions at the audition) to engage in an improv exercise with our Hexmaster, showing your improv ability and willingness to commit to the character and story. Actors need not be experienced in tabletop role-playing games, but should be willing to gamely dive right into their assigned character.

We are looking for people who familiar with the Hexposition of both seasons 1 & 2. You can watch these seasons here.

Location

Auditions will be held at The Hive Collaborative, Utah’s new theater. We’re located at 591 S. 300 West, Provo, UT 84601.

Auditions for The Ten Show

The Hive Collaborative is auditioning for THE TEN SHOW, an online series originating from our theater in Provo, Utah. The Ten Show is designed to be a celebration of the entire playmaking process, from script selection to casting, from rehearsals to performance, from budgeting to putting butts in the seats. In this case, it will all be centered around the 10-minute play art form as 10 producers work with a given budget and compete to advance to subsequent rounds.

We are seeking talent to perform as producers, directors, and actors. Producers do not need to have producing experience, but experience in the theater, whether on the acting side or crew side, is a plus.

Production is scheduled to start 10/14/2019 and run through 11/23/2019 (except dark the week of Halloween and the week beginning 11/11/2019). Producers would need to be available for three of those weeks. Directors and actors only need to be available for at least one of those weeks.

Audition Dates

At this stage, auditions are available by appointment. Please complete the form at the bottom of this page here

What to Prepare

Please prepare one or two 1-minute monologues showing a contrasting range of styles (e.g., one comedic, one serious). Also, please complete the form at the bottom of this page here.

Is the BYU v. UVU Edition of This Really Happening?

Maybe. We’re seeking five current or former students from each school to participate as producers in this friendly competition. If you attended neither, feel free to audition as well. It’s a big tent.

More Info?

We have more details about the how the show works here. Also, it has that form at the bottom that we were hoping you’d fill out before you come, but you can fill it out when you get here if you prefer.

Let’s do something cool together.

Casting Call for Season 2 of “Enter the Hex”

The Hive Collaborative is pleased to announce it is casting for ENTER THE HEX SEASON 2, a online series that helps viewers see why role-playing tabletop games like D&D are exploding in popularity. 

About the Show

The show will originate from the stage of The Hive Collaborative in Provo, Utah in front of a live studio audience.  Season 2 will run for five Friday and Saturday evenings over six weeks, beginning July 12 and ending Aug 17, 2019 (note: no performances scheduled for Aug. 9 & 10). Some roles require a commitment to each of the evening performances. Others require only a commitment to four of the evenings. All roles compensated.

Roles & Schedule

Team Guardians

There will be four teams, each consisting of one Guardian (team captain) and four Champions (team players). 

Champions

Each team will consist of four Champions (or players), each of whom will be featured for at least one Friday/Saturday set of performances. Champions need not be experienced in tabletop role-playing games, but should be willing to gamely dive right into their assigned character and determine the extent they want to follow the advice of their team Guardians. In addition, one Champion for each team will be chosen to return to play on the final Friday/Saturday of the show. As such, Champions must be available for one of the following pairs of dates: July 12-13, July 19-20, July 26-27 & Aug. 2 & 3, and all Champions must be available to return if called upon for the final two nights: Aug. 16 & 17.

Other Roles

All roles are available, including team Guardians and Champions. In addition, the role of the Barkeep is available (note: this role will not be based on Season 1’s barkeep Dermot, but will be a new character to be determine later through the audition process). In addition, we are introducing two new roles, commentators that will participate in a pre-show performance. Commentators should be well-verse in tabletop RPG strategies and game-play.

In addition to the performance nights, team Guardians and Champions will be required to attend game-play instruction rehearsals during several evenings prior to the game nights as well as a dress and tech rehearsal on the Thursday prior to the performance dates. Dates and times to be determined.

Returning Auditioners/Season 1 Cast Members

We’d love to see you again. If you absolutely can’t make the audition dates, please still complete the form below and let us know you’re interested in Season 2.

What to Prepare

For Enter the Hex Season 2, we are continuing to develop our spin on tabletop role-playing games. Working within a fairly streamlined format of the show means that we will be seeking to keep our players’ attributes somewhat simplified. Players selected to participate in Season 2 will be asked to adopt a character created specifically for the show with designated attributes that may be different from other tabletop RPGs. For your audition, we are more interested in how well you can adopt an assigned character, which may not be the specific character you bring for your audition. As such, we would ask that you come with two contrasting characters, from two different clans (see below), to demonstrate your range. For your audition, we’d ask you to introduce yourself briefly, including your name and experience in tabletop RPGs, then to introduce your first character by sharing your character’s name and telling us in character a little bit about your character. We may also ask you to do the same for your second character. We may also verbally present a situation to you and ask you to respond to it as your character would.

It would also be helpful to watch at least parts of a few episodes of Season 1 (click here).
