The Circus Arrives without Warning

“The towering tents are striped in white and black, no golds or crimsons to be seen…All over the tents, small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies…When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears.

Le Cirque des RĂªves- The Circus of Dreams”
– Excerpts from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern


For anyone who had dreams of running away to join the circus, loves fairy tales and exploring the wonder of worlds with magic, reading The Night Circus will enchant you.

The book has inspired me to my next project, a portrait series of the Night Circus characters. Below you can find more information about getting involved and specific casting calls.
Casting

Casting is now open for the first of the character portraits in my The Night Circus series. Like Bailey I am now looking for Poppet. Poppet Murray is in her mid teens with bright red hair and can see the future. She has a fraternal twin brother Widget who can read people’s pasts. She wears a white dress made of a patchwork of different fabrics, military jacketI would love to hear from anyone who feels they can fit the bill and are interested in joining the project. More character information will be provided upon request.

  • There will be flexibility with age for Poppet if needed
  • All actors will receive photos for time
  • Selected actors will need to sign a model release form
  • Please send a photo of yourself and why you are interested in participating
  • It is not required to have read the book but a definite bonus if you have!

Other Ways to be Involved

In addition to actors for the characters I am looking for make-up artists and stylists interested in the project. If you are interested and like the sound of it or would like more information feel free to drop me an email and we can chat. All work will be done on time for photos.
