Audition For ‘Sex & The Single Girl’ Audiobook

Helen Gurley Brown‘s iconic sixties novel Sex and the Single Girl is being adapted into an audio book and Audible Productions is looking for actors to narrate the book.
Actors can audition by submitting a video or audio recording of themselves reading the audition script online. The estimated length of the audio book is 12 hours for the 112,000-word title. Actors will be paid an unspecified hourly rate.
Check it out: “It’s easy to audition — please just click ‘download’ above to access the audition script. If you want to submit an audition and you don’t already have an ACX account, you’ll need to create one; it only takes five minutes to create a ‘narrator’ profile and then uploading your best performance is a snap!”

Audible.com podcast host Susie Bright the acquired the audio rights for the Audible edition of the title explained the idea of the project in this statement: “It’s the most radical work Helen Gurley Brown ever published. The right actor, with the right sass and wit, will make Helen’s voice even more captivating.”

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this post incorrectly listed the audition requirements.
