Disney / ABC Family is holding open online auditions for the lead role in a new Nicki Minaj TV show.
Can you play a young Nicki Minaj? The nationwide, online, talent search is on for a girl to play a young Nicki Minaj.
If you would love tryout for a lead, speaking role in a new Disney / ABC Family TV series… you may be in luck. ABC Family announced that they are looking to cast a talented girl to play the rapper when she was younger. The online auditions are being held via Disney’s Applause app (which was also used for the annual Disney Channel / Disney XD auditions earlier this year). The show is looking for a talented young actress between the ages of 11 and 13 to play Nicki Minaj as a kid.
Nicki Minaj will be serving as the new show’s executive producer. The multi-platinum star received a series order from the Network a few months back and the new show will be based on her life. The 1/2 hour series will tell the story of Nicki and her family, their immigration to the US from Trinidad and her childhood in NYC. The series will showcase her musical evolution that eventually led to her success and made her a star. The show is now in the pre-production stages and will film in the New York City area in 2016.
ABC Family’s EVP Programming and Development Karey Burke stated “Nicki Minaj is a force to be reckoned with at everything she touches….Nicki is an international superstar, yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
The yet untitled show is written by Kate Angelo and is being produced by Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and they are set to film the pilot episode in Nicki Minaj’s home town (NYC) within the next few months.
According to Deadline, talented girls wishing to tryout for the lead role in the new series will need to download the Applause App. They will then need to download the script, create a video audition and upload that audition video back through the app. See this page to download the free Disney Applause app, then select “ABC Family’s Online Open Call” for further information and instructions on how to submit.
The deadline to apply is November 15th.
Again… to apply, you must get the Disney Applause App which will give you access to the script and further instructions on creating your audition video.
I love Disney channel.
I’m Jiji and I think I’d be perfect for this role. Nicki Minaj is like my favorite artist ever! I sing, I rap, and I listen to her songs at least once a day. I’ve memorized some of the rapping lines Super Bass and a little from Anaconda. I love rapping so much I’m about to start a music group with my cousin and I’ll be the rapper. I’m very sassy and have a lot of confidence. You can ask everyone I kow and they’ll tell you just that. I’m African American with poofy hair. I’m 11 and I live in San Jose CA.
I would love to! This would be an amazing oppurtunity for me. I am 11 and live in Oakland CA. Please take me into consideration. I am a great singer and have been on tours around the US. I would like to be younger you in a TV show.
Hi. I’m 11 years old and I would like to play the leading role as young Nicki Minaj. I’m from her hometown Trinidad and I love to sing , dance, and rap. I have that sass you’re looking for. If you are looking for a young Nicki you can stop your searching because trust me you just found her.
I’m adding on to what I said before. I have been taking dance since I was a 1 year old. Now you may think how is that possible but I doubt you say that because you’re producers for great shows and you probably seen it all. So my sisters took dance and I would watch them dance so I was introduced to dancing at a very young age. For my singing, I sort of like to keep it personal but I know I need to get out of my shell when it comes to singing and rapping.
I’m 11 years old and 4’6 with a lot of sass and I love to rap, can please pick me.
I’m a girl and have black hair and am mixed. I can sing, also I have a good memory to act. Contact me at my email and if you need a video I can send a video of me singing super bass.
