What is it? We are conducting a nationwide online casting call to fill the remaining two lead roles for our upcoming film, All Hail the Squash Blossom Queen, a humorous coming-of-age drama. Bumbershoot has just graduated from high school, but still struggles to be noticed. His friend Hannah helps to convince him to enter their small town's beauty pageant in an effort to stand out and be noticed, not just by Brittany, the beautiful girl he is smitten with, but by the community who has grossly overlooked him. all-hailWhat happens if I'm cast? If cast, filming will take place during 3 weeks in April 2015, in Portland, Oregon and surrounding suburbs with a few days of rehearsal beforehand.
