DONATE TODAY Support us and help children and young people with a disability across Queensland

We have an exciting opportunity for anyone who has ever wanted to see themselves on TV!

Montrose is about to start production of a TV ad to be used in the Townsville region, online and possibly across other regions. This is exciting news as Montrose aims to support more people and their families!

To help make this ad a success and keep it as genuine as possible, we are looking for enthusiastic people to join the cast for the commercial.

This could be your big chance!

A few things you need to know:

  • The shoot for the ad is scheduled to take place on Friday 1 July – it will be in Brisbane but the exact location is still being finalised.
  • There will be time allocated for rehearsals on 28/29 June – these will take place at our Darra office.
  • Whilst the shoot and rehearsals will be run over a full day, each person will likely only need to be there for 2-3 hours
  • We have until 24 June to finalise our cast
  • Montrose will cover all out of pocket expenses to get to and from rehearsals and the final shoot

We are looking for up to 20 participants from a variety of age, gender, cultural and ethnic backgrounds so we can give a true sense of the diversity of our customers. In particular:

  • Aged 10-35 in an electric/manual wheelchair (up to 5 people)
  • Aged 10-18 with ability to do some gross motor skills movements e.g. step or fitball  (up to 4 people)
  • Aged 16-30 – lip syncing or hand movements required (up to 6 people)
  • Aged 6-10 – general play activities (up to 6 people)
  • OT and a Physiotherapist (possibly speaking role)

The roles will be non speaking

If you are able to assist and can help identify a person to join us for this exciting project simply get in touch with Tom Roberts (troberts@montrose.org.au, ph 0416 275 883 or jbobbermien@montrose.org.au, ph 0416 144 538)
