Do you want to try out for the Disney Channel? Here’s your chance!
Disney has just made the announcement about their annual open casting call for new talent.
Every year the Disney Channel and Disney XD hold a search for new, and undiscovered child talent. The event is always held during the spring or summer months and this year is no different since the company just announced that July 12th will be that day. This is a free event, there is absolutely no fee to attend but parking will cost $15 for the day. The casting announcement does state that parking will be available at the Hollywood & Highland parking structure which is nearby.
This years Disney auditions will be held in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 12th 2014. The event will be held at the Loews Hollywood Hotel located at 1755 North Highland Avenue, Hollywood, California 90028. All talent will need to come to the event and there will be a registration line open from 9AM to 1PM. Those that get there after 1PM will most likely not be seen or have a chance to audition.
The annual Disney auditions are held once a year and each year the Disney casting directors travel to a new city. Representatives with the Disney Channel and Disney XD will be at the event meeting with kids who would like to tryout for a role in a Disney Channel or Disney XD show.
These auditions are not for any specific role or project. This is a search for new talent and you do not need to have an agent to be seen. The company is looking for kids between the ages of 10 and 17 who have an interest in acting and would like to be considered for future projects. The try outs give kids a chance to get discovered and Selena Gomez got her start by attending the yearly Disney casting call in Texas back in 2004. Last year the event was held in Texas.
If you plan on attending the even, come prepared with a current photo that you can leave with the casting directors. If you have a resume, it’s probably a good idea to bring that as well. Be prepared to wait. This is a yearly event that draws thousands of hopefuls and their families. Many people fly in from other parts of the country and it will be very crowded.
In recent years, kids were given a very short script and then a minute to perform it in front of the Disney Channel CD’s.
Due to the amount of kids that will be attending, the audition will be very quick and those who have attended in the past have have stated that it literally is about a minute.
