Character Descriptions and Audition Packages


[ARI V.O.] Male. 7-10 (talent need to sound like they are 8-9). TALENT MUST BE ABLE TO READ. ALSO IMPORTANT THAT THE ACTOR HAS A DISABILITY/USES A WHEELCHAIR. Ari is a comic book character come to life who is totally fearless. He's the kind of kid who marches to the beat of his own drum, which is about 6 months in the future compared to everyone else. Ari has boundless energy, loves to go fast, and is an expert with all things engineering and gear - Think of him as a little ‘Q’ from James Bond... But also James Bond. His special skills are- The Sonic Vroom-Boom – a turbo powered move where Ari’s chair can zoom past anyone and is undetectable to human or animal eyeballs. LEAD.

TONE: The tone will be quirky and off-beat with lots of physical comedy, silly asides, and banter between the friends. Comedy will be rooted in character and kid-relatable experiences. Most episodes will start in a smaller/more manageable place but will take surprising turns which will lead to larger than life stories and big comedic dilemmas. It doesn’t just snowball, it avalanches! Generally speaking, the Crew will make matters way worse before they make anything better and find that specific creative solution for their initial task.
