For the first time ever, Disney Channel will host an online casting call for actors ages 10-17 to audition via video for casting directors working on upcoming movie and series to be presented on Disney Channel and Disney XD. In conjunction with the Disney Applause App they are part of an ongoing initiative to find, cast and develop diverse young actors, singers and dancers and provide them with opportunities. The casting call beings Thursday, July 23 and runs through August 6.
Brief scene monologues and guidelines for the audition video are available at www.DisneyChannel.com/TalentSearch. Parents and actors can also find tips from other young actors on how to submit an effective video audition.
“While many factors go into casting a role, our goal is to find new talent and make the process accessible to all, whether amateur or professional actors with agents. It also provides parents assurances about privacy and safety online,” said Judy Taylor, Senior Vice President, Casting and Talent Relations to Disney Channels Worldwide.
