Disney Channel and Disney XD have begun a national talent search seeking talented, young actors, actresses, singers and dancers between the ages of 10 and 17 to be considered for roles in upcoming Disney Channel and Disney XD Original Movies and Televisions Series. If you have a strong desire to act, sing, or dance, then Disney casting directors would love to hear from you or see you at an upcoming open casting call. Two open casting calls have been scheduled for July 27th and 28th in San Antonio, Texas. Details below.
Disney casting directors have begun this this national talent search by visiting the greater Southern California area elementary, middle and high schools, performing arts schools and academies, dance studios and after school programs. An open casting call at an as-yet undisclosed city will also be posted soon.
This official talent search is among Disney Channel’s and Disney XD’s few annual casting searches in the United States. You DO NOT need to live in Los Angeles for this talent search, as it is open to kids and teens across America. Disney Channel and Disney XD casts the vast majority of actors in Los Angeles due to the large number of talent agents, casting directors, and actors available in the area. However, they do hold open casting calls and talent searches in other cities, and even other countries occasionally.
Last year Disney’s Senior Vice President, Casting and Talent Relations stated, “We are pleased to play a part in cultivating young talent and helping them achieve their dreams …our representatives are searching for a range of youthful talent with comedic acting ability and/or singing and dancing experience to showcase their skills for consideration in our upcoming series and movies”.
Some of the Disney Channel shows are So Random, Jessie, Ant Farm, Kickin’ It, Pair of Kings, Good Luck Charlie, Shake It Up, Dog With a Blog, not to mention awesome Disney Channel Original Movies!
