Disney Channel is launching an open casting call—here's how to enter!
Have you ever dreamed of being a Disney Channel star? Do you know, deep down in your heart of hearts, that the only thing standing between you and triple threat stardom is the fact that you don't happen to already live in Hollywood?
If so, today is your day—as in your dreams-come-true, the-world-can-finally-know-your-talent-and-gifts kind of day. Disney Channel has lauched a digital open casting call for kids and teens. Yes, digital—meaning you don't have to leave the comfort of your very own home (no matter where in the world that home is located) to submit yourself for Disney fame and glory.
The casting call is open as of today (November 14) and video submissions will be accepted from now through Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at www.Disney.com/disneychannelcasting.
Why is Disney Channel gifting kids and teens around the world with this brilliant, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you ask?
"In our ongoing efforts to reach a broader pool of talent across the U.S., our digital open casting call allows parents whose kids aspire to be actors the opportunity to submit their child’s audition right from where they live," Judy Taylor, senior vice president, Casting and Talent Relations, Disney Channel, explains. "This also gives Disney Channel a chance to potentially discover fresh, young and diverse talent who may not yet have agency representation."
Now for the part you truly care about: The rules for entry. Here they are, straight from the people at Disney:
"To be considered, actors must be able to play ages 8-16 years old, and all video auditions must be submitted via www.Disney.com/disneychannelcasting. A brief scene and guidelines for the audition video are available on the site along with a step-by-step tutorial featuring Disney Channel stars Issac Ryan Brown ("Raven's Home") and Kylie Cantrall ("Gabby Duran & The Unsittables") giving tips on submitting the audition video."
Watch the tutorial starring Issac and Kylie below:
And, just because the fine print is important, anyone entering the casting call should keep in mind that there is no guarantee of employment and all video auditions must be submitted by a parent or guardian. Disney Channel is not affiliated with any acting school or acting workshop and will never require a fee to audition.
