Reminder to all who are interested…. OPEN CASTING CALL, Official Disney Channel event in Los Angeles on Saturday July 12, 2014!
This is for real, kids 10-17 years of age welcome, NO fees or expenses other than maybe parking. Union and non-union welcome, NO acting experience necessary. Again this is an OFFICIAL Disney event!
Take a look at any Disney Channel show, and all you see is energy and happiness. The casting directors do not want to see kids with “grumpy” faces from standing in line all day. They want to see smiles and energy. After all, when kids are acting on Disney Channel shows, they have to sit around and wait all day until they are called to the set, they have to sit in the makeup chair for hours, they have to sit in the wardrobe department for long fittings, and then they have to get up there and be amazing performers. THAT is what they are looking for… kids who get up there and exude happiness and energy! Do your best to help your child be as happy as you can while attending this open casting call. Disney Channel is all about happiness, smiles, laughter, and energy. Just SHOW all that, and your kid can not go wrong!
The reason Disney Channel is doing the FIRST open casting call ever in Los Angeles this year, is because there are a lot of new TV shows in the works and in production. All Disney Channel television series are shot in Los Angeles. Disney Channel Original Movies are shot in many other areas, especially in Canada. But ALL Disney Channel and Disney XD TELEVISION SERIES are shot in Los Angeles.
Just an FYI, if your child has a Coogan Account, make sure that you tell the casting directors. The same goes for SAG-AFTRA membership, and/or entertainment industry minor work permits. It can make a difference for this type of open casting call.
To be considered, all talent must be legally eligible to work in the state of California and in the United States.
