Disney Channel has launched a digital open casting call for kids and teens as part of the network’s ongoing initiative to discover and develop young talent.
To be considered, actors must be able to play ages 8 to 16 years old, and all video auditions must be submitted via Disney’s website. A brief scene and guidelines for the audition video are available on the site along with a step-by-step tutorial, featuring Disney Channel stars Issac Ryan Brown (Raven’s Home) and Kylie Cantrall (Gabby Duran & The Unsittables) giving tips on submitting.
The casting call opened on Friday, November 15, and video submissions are being accepted through Tuesday, December 31. There is no guarantee of employment, and all video auditions must be submitted by a parent or guardian.
Judy Taylor, senior VP of casting and talent relations for Disney Channel, said, “In our ongoing efforts to reach a broader pool of talent across the U.S., our digital open casting call allows parents whose kids aspire to be actors the opportunity to submit their child’s audition right from where they live. This also gives Disney Channel a chance to potentially discover fresh, young and diverse talent who may not yet have agency representation.”
