Disney Movie Auditions for Teens Coming to Chicago

10/10/2016

Disney’s upcoming retelling of  “A Wrinkle in Time” is holding open auditions for teens in Chicago.

Auditions for a major role in the Disney movie are being held this week and casting directors are looking to fill the lead role of “Calvin” who is described as a Latino teen ages 14 to 17. The movie has been casting major speaking roles for some months now and casting directors in various cities have held open calls. Just this last weekend, open auditions for Disney’s “A Wrinkle In Time” were held in Virginia, however those seemed to be for a different role and a completely different age group.

Chicago’s Simon Casting will be hosting this particular open call and audition slots are being setup for this week and are by appointment only. Teens matching the below description are asked to get their contact info and photos over to the casting directors ASAP.

Wrinkle in Time movie cast

The Disney movie will star Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon. “A Wrinkle in Time” is being directed  by Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay who worked with Oprah Winfrey on Selma.   “A Wrinkle in Time” is based on the popular children’s book by Madeleine L’Engle in which  a troubled teen girl named Meg and her family set off on a fantasy adventure after her scientist father goes missing while working on a top secret project known as the Tesseract.

The book won literary awards including the Newbery Medal, Sequoyah Book Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. The script for the Disney’s version of the story is being written by Frozen screenwriter Jennifer Lee.
