The slated project is a complete radio adaptation of KKat's fanfiction "Fallout: Equestria".
For those that are not familiar with the story, allow me to explain a little more about it. As the title suggests, the fanfiction is a crossover between the series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and the "Fallout" video game series. Certainly a strange mix, but it is certainly a well-written story. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic Equestria, where the land has been ravaged by what was effectively a magical nuclear war between ponies and zebras. Pockets of the original Equestrian inhabitants managed to survive by sealing themselves into large fallout shelters called "stables", where the remnants of Equestria's pony society attempt to continue their lives until the radiation above dissipates. Other Equestrian ponies, who were not able to reach the stables in time, also try to continue their lives in the Equestrian wasteland, though matters aboveground become violent. Centuries later, the stables are still active, and the ponies have not returned to the surface. At this point, the story introduces us to the pony Littlepip, who works in Stable 2 as a Pipbuck technician (the story's equivalent of Fallout's Pipboys). When another pony named Velvet Remedy, one of the stable's prominent singers and one of Littlepip's crushes (it is probably necessary to mention here that Littlepip is a female pony, same as Velvet Remedy), manages to escape the stable, Littlepip also escapes in search of Velvet Remedy. What ensues is a thrilling adventure in the Equestrian wasteland, where Littlepip comes to meet other friends, and eventually open the way to healing the poisoned land of Equestria itself.
The story in its entirety can be read here: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/0...equestria.html
Be warned that the story is 614,000 words in length, but if you have not done so already, and happen to be a fan of either "MLP:FIM" or the "Fallout" series, it is certainly wirth the time reading.

Bio: Littlepip is best described as having a bit of an anti-hero persona. She is honestly well intentioned, but she sometimes slips into what TV Tropes refers to as "black and grey morality" at times, especially where the safety of the innocent is concerned. She has a real penchant for cussing, although it is usually in the style of the speech common to the MLP universe. Her curiosity is one of her most defining features - she herself doesn't know whether to consider a virtue or vice, since it has both helped and hurt her before. She is a skilled technician and lockpicker. She sometimes suffers from a lack of self-esteem, especially when she is faced with the horrifying reality of the Equestrian wasteland or when facing her own inner demons. She is vulnerable to substance addictions, especially after she is introduced to drugs out in the wateland, even though she does her best (and eventually succeeds) at fighting this off. In spite of all her vices, though, Littlepip's eventual overcoming of many of these furthers her own development as a character. Littlepip is infinitely good-hearted, very selfless, a good friend to everyone, and willing to sacrifice herself completely for the sake of Equestria and her friends.
Voice Type: This one is up to the discretion of the auditioning person. Read the above info, use your imagination, and surprise me!
Record all 11 lines in your audition.
Audition Line 1: If I'm going to tell you about the adventure of my life - explain how I got to this place with these people, and why I did what I'm going to do next - I should probably start by explaining a little bit about Pipbucks.
Audition line 2: This wall needs a mural. *groan of frustration*
Audition line 3: W-What?! But I just saved you!
Audition line 4: Do you know that you only have one shot left? And judging by the sprite-bot, that gun is in such poor repair I’ll survive being shot with it. Will you survive being shot with this as many times as I can move the trigger while you try to reload?
Audition line 5: Oh, fuck me with Celestia's front hooves!
Audition Line 6: (In a despairing tone) All of this... SteelHooves’ death... it was all my fault!
Audition Line 7: (Littlepip is crying as she says this line) I... I did this. That bomb killed... how many?
Audition Line 8: (Sarcastic) Right. Because us ponies are always so noble.
Audition Line 9: (In a pained voice - at this point, Littlepip has been shot and kicked at several times) Please...don't do what they want you to do! Join me. We can escape together.
Audition Line 10:(In a rage) Shoot at me all you want, but if you attack that family, I will! End! You!
Audition Line 11: (In a weak voice - at this point, Littlepip is about to collapse from pain and loss of blood) I'm...not the one attacking...you're the one who shot me.
