Cass-based movie auditions coming to Marlinton
Producers of the Cass-based film “Angel’s Perch,” will be at the Marlinton Municipal Building Sunday, August 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. to hold auditions for supporting roles.
The roles up for auditions are:
Delbert, a 70-to-90-year-old male postmaster, musician and, despite his age, still the most eligible bachelor in town. Must be able to sing and play guitar, banjo or fiddle well.
Dr. Snyder, a 60-to-75-year-old male local doctor who has been taking care of pretty much everyone in the area for as long as folks can remember. Warm and caring.
Kevin, 28-to-35-year-old fast talking, ambitious young architect. Best friend of the lead character.
Woman in chair, 40-to-65-year-old impatient woman from out of town, complains when the town’s hairdresser takes too long with a local.
Woman 1, 40-to-65-year-old who engages the lead character in a conversation at the cakewalk.
Cake Caller, 40-to-70-year-old male Master of Ceremonies at the cakewalk.
Jacobson, 50-to-65-year-old male, prominent Pittsburgh businessman who built his reputation on a no-nonsense approach. Intimidating, but once you crack his code, you’re in for life.

Filming will begin on location in Cass in September.
The synopsis for “Angel’s Perch” is:
“‘Angel’s Perch’ is the story of Jack, a successful architect living in Pittsburgh, who must make the trip to his tiny hometown when his grandmother Polly, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, is found wandering outside her house one morning.
“But what was intended to be a two day, under the radar trip to town becomes more complicated when Jack is unable to move Polly into an assisted living facility. Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack’s carefully constructed life begins to unravel.
“As the town prepares to honor Polly’s life by crowning her “Queen of Cass” and the pressure to return to Pittsburgh mounts, Jack struggles to hide behind the walls he has built. And when he finally reveals his secret to an old childhood friend, he is forced to choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move forward.
“Set almost entirely in the small, historic logging town of Cass, “Angel’s Perch” examines the delicate relationship between past and present, memory and loss.”
