Auditions Held Here for Hollywood Film
People lined up for a chance to be in the movies as a productory team from Los Angeles was in town to explain how Provost and many of its residents may be used for the full length motion picture to be filmed beginning in March 2011.

Crowds were greeted on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, November 2 and 3 at Prairie Hall and auditions were held in a private area in the Alberta Room when video was taken so that potential actors could be studied more carefully back in the United States.

The first draft for the film called “Barlowe Mann” was written by actor and film producer Corbin Bernsen of Los Angeles.

Bernsen addressed a crowd of approximately 160 people on Tuesday night and an estimated 90 people the next evening.

He told the crowd before auditions that the film is a “family faith-based” movie and explained that it’s about a kid and it looks at ‘“all things from Santa Claus to God.”

“Everybody here today” he said who wants to, “will do something in the movie” pointing out that plenty of people will be needed for crowd scenes like in church or school—though the speaking roles will be limited.

He brought with him his son Oliver Bernsen who is an art director along with producer Chris Aronoff and co-producer James Greilick.

Corbin Bernsen and his company called Team Cherokee Productions is making a legal arrangement with a group of local investors called Provost Film Development Corporation.

After the short explanation, people were invited to fill in a form including their name and other contact information and then wait for their turn to be heard in a separate room. All children were first given time to talk with the movie actor, known for dozens of stage, television and movie roles including starring more recently in the television series L.A. Law and a recent film called Rust.
