Tryout for The Disney Channel – Open Auditions Announced


Open Auditions for Disney Channel and Disney XD Coming Up.

The Disney Channel announced open online auditions last week and this week Disney Channel and Disney XD announced that they would be holding a live open cast call in the Los Angeles / Orange County area.  

Looking to become famous on the Disney Channel?  If you live in or around the Los Angeles area and have been itching to tryout for a role in an upcoming Disney Channel show or in one of their movies, here is your shot. The Disney casting team will be in the Los Angeles area scouting new talent in just a few weeks and teens in the area can come on down, with their parents, to meet with the Disney Channel casting directors.

The auditions are set for May 15th and will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center.  Disney Channel is looking to cast new talent for their upcoming movie “High School Musical 4.” The network is looking for teens ages 14 to 17 who can sing, dance and act for a possible spot in their upcoming Disney Channel movie, “High School Musical 4.”

If you do not live in the Los Angeles or Orange County area you are still in luck because online auditions are also open for talent that does not live in the Southern California area. The Disney Channel casting directors are asking that all teens coming to the in person casting call download the script (see below) as they will be asked to read from it.


All teens attending must come with a parent or guardian and are also asked to bring a current photo of themselves that may be left with the casting directors. Photos do not need to be professional and regular snap shots are OK.

Here are a few tips about photos:

  • Make sure the picture is well lit with minimal background distraction.
  • You should be the only person in the photo and avoid photos that include anyone else.
  • Avoid taking a picture in front of a window or bright light source.
  • The age range they are looking for is 14 to 17. Generally casting directors ARE actually looking to cast kids / teens that look the requested age so avoid wearing too much makeup that makes you look older.
  • Casting directors need to see what you actually look like so avoid any props such as sun glasses or hats.
  • Have a friend or parent take a photo of you. DO NOT take a selfie in a mirror or in any unflattering angle.

This is the official Disney open call and there is no fee to tryout. Official Disney Channel auditions are always free. Appointments are not required but families driving to the convention center will need to pay for parking which will be about $15 per car at the convention center lot.

These events generally draw a huge crowd so be prepared to wait in line for quite some time. They are only interested in teens ages 14 to 17 and will not be auditioning kids outside of that age group at that time. If coming as a family, you may want to leave any younger siblings at home, especially if they are very young and unable to stand in line for extended periods of time. See the casting notice below for all the details.

Disney XD tryouts 2016 / 2017


These are the lines that teens will be reading for the role:

PEYTON (MORNING, getting ready for school)

It’s like the adults had a meeting and said: “You know how teenagers have a biological need to sleep late? Let’s make them go to school super-crazy early!”

Luckily I’ve got sports to keep me going. My family moves a lot for my dad’s job. Not great for making friends. But sports? They’re always there for me.

I’ve got a jersey for every mood. Am I feeling Basketball “FUN,” Football “TOUGH” or Soccer “FOCUSED?”

Which one says, “Today’s the Start of Something New…YET AGAIN”….??

(Pretends to hold up Soccer jersey) So “Soccer,” you gonna help me “Get My Head in the Game?!”

  8. Qistina Michael

    Hi, I’m Qistina Michael and I am 15 this year. I stand at 5ft 3 inches and I am of mixed blood. I have not acted in movies, but I am hoping to do so in Disney Channel since it is the place where I feel happy and safe. All the shows I’ve watched in Disney Channel has made me who I am today. A brave, optimistic and honest girl, and I truly thank you for that. I want to act because it allows me to be in someone’s shoes, think how they think, feel how they feel. I want to explore myself, and acting can help me do that as I could act as a nerd, or anything else. Acting allows me to be different people, but at the end, I realize I’m able to do that because it is all in me. The good, the bad, and the ugly. So please consider me. Thank you for your time.
