Q: What happens if a voice actor does not show up? Will my script not be used?

A: If your script is determined by our judges to be the best it will be performed. The voice talent represented below have given us a strong indication they will be attending and are interested in being part of the script reading. But the unforeseen does happen and one of our voice actors may not be able to attend or be stricken with a sore throat. If that happens then the part will be re-cast but not re-written. It may seem unfortunate but it may end up being even more entertaining. For example, if you wrote a part for Skeletor and Alan Oppenheimer is unable to attend then it may be performed by Jim Cummings in the voice of Darkwing Duck! It then becomes an even more interesting mash up!
