What to Expect from Disney Channel Auditions If You’re A Newbie

disney channel auditions how to make it

Casting director Judy Taylor discovered Selena Gomez at a Disney open audition.

Not every Hollywood story begins with being discovered by talent scouts while walking through the local mall.

Most actors have to work at it, often appearing at dozens of auditions before getting even a sample of the big lights. For youthful actors, one such opportunity is attending auditions for Disney Channel, which take place across the country and throughout the year.

You will fare well in Disney Channel auditions if you are well-informed of everything that goes on, not just in the entertainment industry, but also how things work specifically at Disney.

Arming yourself with the right information is the best way to begin the process of realizing your dreams.

The Types of Casting Directors

The casting directors for Disney auditions are grouped into two classifications:

1: In-house Casting Directors

In-house casting directors most often audition actors who are already established in the industry for starring roles in their regular television series or for Disney Channel Original Movies.

Judy Taylor, Senior Vice President, Casting and Talent Relations for Disney Channel, is an example of an in-house casting director. Taylor will travel to find talent, but usually only starring roles, such as her recent trip to San Antonio for an open casting call for a new family-series and upcoming Disney movies.

Do your research before attending any audition for Disney Channel, if one of the in-house casting directors is running the event, chances are they are scouting for some larger opportunities.

2: Freelance Casting Directors

Freelance casting directors usually handle nationwide castings, although they do hold auditions for known actors as well. There are also times when they bring in newbies to audition for lead roles, if they believe that they are suitable for specific roles for television shows or feature films.

If during your preparation you realize the casting director is not an in-house casting director, that’s ok, it’s still your chance to make a name for yourself and start making a positive impression. Just don’t expect to be starring on Jessie next week.

What Casting Directors Are Looking For

By understanding what casting directors are looking for you have a better chance of standing out from the crowd, even if you have little to no credits to your name.

Auditioning for Television and Film roles can be unnerving, but no one said it would be easy

  1.  Live Theater Experience – find opportunities to be part of community theater, youth theater groups or summer acting camps. It is not just a great deal of fun, but it also provides a learning experience that is essential to growing your talent. Being involved in theater will allow you to hone your craft and  practice nailing your lines in real time. This usually means that it will take you lesser time to perfect a scene when you are hired to work in a television show or a film.
  2. Having real coaching –  it is imperative that you have worked or trained with reputable actingor  singing coaches. Often reputable coaches will bring in casting directors to see their students perform, so it is worthwhile on many levels to get proper training and exposure.
  3. Make the script your own – casting directors don’t want to see you do an impression of one of their current actors, they want to see your unique take on the script. That doesn’t mean be the crazy wacky person, it just means feel the script as you would feel it, not as you interpret how someone else would. It’s always wonderful and important to watch other actors to see what you like and don’t like, but make sure you don’t try to emulate anyone. What sets you part is…you.
  4. Have fun – Have you ever seen a depressing, glum, boring, angry Disney Channel show? “We want everyone at the open call to have fun and enjoy the audition process,” says Taylor. “As casting directors, we love what we do and we want you to enjoy the experience just as much. Anyone who comes out to this open call has already succeeded – you made the effort to participate in something you really love and shared with us your unique talent.”

The Chances of Being Discovered at and Audition for Disney Channel

If you are a newbie in the entertainment industry, and you make a positive impression during your audition, you are most likely going to start out in supporting roles, which could over time grow into something larger. It is rare for someone to burst on the scene and immediately be thrust into a starring role – making your way at the Disney Channel can take time.

But, there is a new trend lately.

Despite the fact that only one or two of the thousands of people that show up to Disney Channel auditions actually land a role, more and more studio producers are battling to find fresh new faces in the crowd.

The chance still remains that you might be the face and talent they are looking for.

    I want to become an actress on disney channel but I don’t know where to get started.

    • Jazmyne – thanks for writing in, I think our guest author Marie gave some really great tips to help get you started! Good luck – I hope we see you on TV one of these days… – Brian

      • Mauwa Aombe says:

        I have been wanting to audition for disney channel but i don’t know what website to search so i can signup. Do you know the website that i could visit to signup? Please and thank you.

        • Hi, I also didn’t know where to start untill my mom found this website. It’s probaly too late for the disney audition thing, but the website itself will keep you updated.:)

        • go to google and tipe in talent for disney and you can go audition for it in seattle wa

        • email my email @lovemiya224@gmail.com they have Disney auditions and I got one next sunday 🙂

          • My dream is to become an actress so every chance I get, I go to the nearest audition. I’ve been to Seattle talents casting call, and it’s a major scam. All they want is your money so that you can go to acting classes and they don’t cast you. But if you want to go to real auditions, download the Disney app and they usually post when there are some Open Casting Calls. I already auditioned for mine a while ago. But best of luck!

          • I got one next Saturday, all I did was scroll though insta and this add popped up about how they were coming to Sydney so I booked an audition

        • You don’t “sign up”. You find an open casting call and just show up. You sign up when you get there. Basically you give them your basic info, get a number to pin on your shirt, then wait a few hours until your number is called. Just keep in mind you’re probably going to be waiting up to 6 hours, maybe more. You might not even get a chance to even audition. Get there early so you sign in first and get an early spot. The directors are fresh and full of coffee at that point and excited to see new faces. If you’re a later number, the casting directors are probably pretty grouchy by that point and are going to be more “critical” of you. Also keep in mind you’re going to be auditioning against hundreds if not up to a thousand other kids who want it just as bad as you do. You’re going to have about 2 minutes, if that much, to really stick in their minds.

          All just things to keep in mind. I know at your age it all seems so simple and you’re all starry eyed. Keep that dream, but remember there’s a million other kids in our country with the same dream asking their parents the same stuff. Keep everything in perspective.

          • Tehani Ruh says:

            All i have ever wanted in my entire life is to become a actress no matter what it takes and no matter what anyone thinks I will become an actress if it takes me 10 minutes or 10 years.

          • Tehani Ruh says:

            All i have ever wanted in my entire life is to become a actress no matter what it takes and no matter what anyone thinks I will become an actress if it takes me 10 minutes or 10 years. I’m starting small, I’m preforming a play at ABT but its just a stepping stone.

          • Jennifer says:

            So negative. Give life a break… My son has an appointment tomorrow so yes they do make appointments sometimes to audition. Mr know it all.

        • I typed in Disney Channel Auditions 2016 (or whatever year it is when you are looking it up) and got to look at stuff and you can email your resume. I live in Canada, so it’s harder to get your parents to take you to the USA. You can also submit video auditions (if you live elsewhere, you should hope for a movie role because you won’t spend excessive time away from school) if it says you can. Do local theatre first if you live somewhere else and hope to get commercials and small stuff before begging your parents to drag you somewhere else where you may not even get a job.

          But don’t let your dreams die. Always work hard.

        • Actually, the official Disney Talent Search is at Disney.com/talentsearch.

        • Peaches says:

          Its me and you I tired staying home not doing anything but it’s even more hard for me because I live in the Caribbean and if I do get a promising acting job I have to leave but this is what I want from since I was small I want people to see me on tv I ant people to know who I am but it looks like that life is clearly not for everybody. If anyone can hel me please do I really need and want this more than you can imagine and its me one I don’t really have my ch support but I still need this.

      • aiven lumasac says:

        i want to know how can i be a actor on disney?

      • My dream/ goal in life is to be an actress. I live in San angelo tx so not much acting classes are here I do use YouTube to help. I will be attending the open call in San Antonio. Please email my mom to inform us in how that works please. I am 11 and a Disney fan I hope I do well even if I don’t get a lead role I’d still be thankful to be in the production. I can’t wait and thank you so much for reading Disney

        • Oh goodness. Just wait until you’re 20 and wonder where all the time has gone XD. I had the same dreams at that age and so did millions of other kids. It’s not as simple as you think. My advice is to focus on school and doing well in your education. I wish I would have. Focus on school and making a career for yourself, something that is stable and reliable (not acting). Keep your dream and keep acting, but do it as a hobby. Remember you’re going to have bills to pay one day, and that day comes a whole lot faster than you think.

          • Your reply makes me mad. Thats not true at ALL! Yes focus on school but some people like acting and want to percue that as there job. So dont be crushing kids dreams ! I was 10 and i had that dream (i never auditinioned but..) and now im 13 and i play at plays acting at my local theater its so much fun! So kids heres advice from me (a kid)

            Dream on what makes you happy but make sure you also focus on school and family live life to the fullest

          • Fantastic advice, thank you so much!!

          • Tehani Ruh says:

            Amen to u Bree. Kids and young teens take it from other kids( us) if u want to do something then u had better try at leastno offense to u jake but man aren’t you a party pooper.

          • Jennifer says:

            This why you failed at life…. So negative and crabby

      • Ashley Gillis says:

        What if you are a Canadian citizen I love modeling and acting I’ve been doing it for a year and abit now and really want to go further with it I’m 17 years old and just shy of 5’10

      • Hey I’m 17 and I was wondering when the cut off age to audition for Disney is? Am I too old?

        • Thomas Ferguson says:

          The age limit is 18 but if you actually look younger then your actual age then, yes you can still star in the Disney cast.

        • BabyAngel says:

          Don’t worry. Dove Cameron (Liv and Maddie main character and Disney superstar) started when she just turned 19! You’ve still got plenty of time. 🙂

        • There isn’t one. As long as you look younger. Remember the guy who played Jackson on Hannah Montana? He was in his 30’s while the show was filming! I’m 25 but look about 16 or 17, so I’ll fit right in. Throw some make up on me and I look even younger.

        • I doubt it, you can even audition to be an adult on Disney. But the younger you look the better. Makeup makes you look younger and try to take care of your skin to look younger and shave if you have a beard and get a modern hairstyle that teenagers have

      • Hi Brian, I just submitted a video for an open casting call for HSM4. Do you know how long it takes for callbacks (if I get one) about how many weeks? Thank you

      • I would also like to act in Jessie but I don’t know where to start

      • hi im sara , im from spain, and i was wondering if i could audition,i ve been acting for kids , i sing and play guitar and spanish drums, i have no acting classes, my parents say i have to finish studies so ill be 19 or 20 by the time that i finish and move to america if theres a way i can,i am a happy and funny girl.If theres a way i could audition and convice my parents would be awesome.Also i have a great american acent.

      • I have an audition for Disney channel I think I’m ready on the outside but not on the inside

      • Trianadudley says:

      • Brian it’s an honor to have come upon this site. I have a deep passion for singing and acting. I’ve always been intrigued by even just the scenery! I have never acted before but I would love to kick it up and work with you. I could make u very happy. Please give me that chance and work with me.

      • Yassin Antar says:

        I’m living in Germany(15 years old) and I want to be an actor in the USA(Los angeles) but I don’t know how
        Is there any international auditions ?
        My plan was to do an internship in L.A while I am doing this I want to apply for roles(auditions) is this possibile?

      • I am an indian ….. And I really love acting …. I’m not actually where to start

      • Hi I would like to know how to audition for Disney XD

      • Destiny m says:

        I wish that I could be on Disney Channel but I can’t find anyone to help. Someone show me the way

    • Start by taking classes (professional actress,or a normal acting coach) i will recomend you take private lessons.

      • I am a very good actress ,I will rock my talents if I act In Jessie. Most of my friends say I act like zuri and I know I do. I will be so excited if I get to audition in Jessie

        • Hold it right there. Just so you know, landing a role in your favorite show is probably 1 in a trillion. I can basically guarantee you that’s not going to happen. Also keep in mind they already have their main cast, and that Jessie is actually DONE filming. So…. get that idea out of your head. My recommendation? Learn how the entertainment industry works first. I’ve done at least 15 Disney auditions already and haven’t gotten anything. It take ALOT before you ever get anything. Be prepared to be disappointed. Also be prepared to act on a show you’ve never heard of, and probably as an extra/non speaking role.

          • Hi I’m Jayne,
            Tb I want to act well not actually act but i can try and i mostly am kinda better at singing then acting on Disney channel because sitting at home and watching the FAB 5 on the Disney Channel also i’m an Islander.Thanxs for reading this. God Bless and well just wait and see.

        • I am pretty sure that Disney is holding one in Singapore. It might have ended now. I suggest you should at least act in one thing to boost your chances. I am also trying to become one.
          Best wishes

  8. My name is Antonio I am confident enough that I will be on Disney channel one day, but I have to wait until I am 18 years because I live in Trinidad and Disney don’t travel that far, so when I finish high school I will come to L.A to live and I will make you all happy and do great things for Disney in my years to come.

    I am lydia (female) and I am 12 years old.
    I can sing, dance, model and most importantly, act.
    I am in a choir, I take dance classes and I have acted in two musical plays.
    I’m wondering if there are any ways to audition for disney channel online (getting emailed a script and taking a video of me acting it).
    I am Finnish but I live in China and it would cost a lot of money to go all the way to the United States and not get a part (hope you understand my situation).
    I am also wondering if you could give me a directors email if that is possible (or anyone in Disney Channel who could help me in this situation).
    Thank you so much!

    • Hi Lydia – I’m sure you are extremely talented and worthy of inclusion on a Disney Channel show – unfortunately we aren’t casting directors so we don’t have the ability to answer the questions you have asked, or the emails of directors. I wish you the best – Brian

  16. Yodit Woldegebriel says:

    Hi, my name is Yodit Woldegebriel and I am 16 years old. I have been looking for work for the past three years and I so far I only dealt with scams. It’s hard for me without the extra support from my parents so I can’t count on rides to auditions and acting classes but, that didn’t stop me, only motivated me. I’m taking drama at school and working on auditioning tapes so I can start sending them out. Disney Channel is such an AMAZING platform for many young and fresh actors to start out so if there is an email I can send them out to that would be awesome. I am very determined to become an actress and willing to put in work. Thank you for your time and information.

    • I understand what you are going through because the same thing is happening to me.Most people think that it is a joke that I actually want to give my full potential into modeling and there are so many scams out there.One of the most reason why I am scared is because people think I’m making a joke out of myself.I hope I get a chance to prove them wrong.

  17. Hi I’m Lauren and this is my biggest dream is to act on a show or movie and this has been my dream sense I was 8 and I was wondering if u can get me in

  18. Jayden Jackson says:

    Hi, I am auditioning Saturday for Disney! I was wondering if I needed a portfolio of headshots , and information about myself if you could get back to me whenever is convenient for you that’s be great ! Thank you !

    • Jayden Jackson says:

      That’d *

    • Yes! bring it all, have it all! It’s better to have too much than not look prepared…but the bottom line is, if you are good and you impress them… it won’t be beause of ghe headshots, it’ll be because of you.

    • omara atkinson says:

      hi Vanessa I don’t know much but maybe look up things like Disney acting calls that might help see ya later

  32. omara atkinson says:

    hi I am Omara, I am really wanting to be an actress but don’t know if it coasts money and I don’t know if other people can do auditions if there not in America? can you please answer PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Omara – happy to answer. If you want to be part of an American show chances are auditions will take place here in the United States, but you should search Google and see if there are casting calls in your country. As for if it costs money, generally speaking most actors and actresses take classes or participate in theater, so I’m sure there is some cost involved. Sometimes though, people get discovered in different ways…so you never know! – Brian

      • shayla Harris says:

    Hi I’m Sherymae. I really want to become and actress in disney but I find it really hard because I live in the Philippines. Is there any chances that disney will come in the Philippines to conduct some auditions? or maybe they accept online auditions?

  36. Hello, i’m Znovia and I would like to be an actress for disney channel. I sing, dance, act, model and write poetry and short stories. I am very aware that you aren’t casting directors, nor talent agents, but I would really appreciate if I could ask you some things.. like,

    * If you’re a newbie, how would you go about finding a talent agent?
    * Would I need a talent agent to be on disney?
    * Will disney let you make short movie’s for they’re television shows?
    * What do you personally think would impress the directors?
    * If I were to be chosen to act for one ( Or a few ) of their television shows or movie’s would I be introduced as a guest star, or would I be like an extra, that only says a few lines every show or movie?

  37. My name is Emma I love to act I don’t live anywhere near LA and most auditions are there if I want to send a video audition in for a show or movie on Disney channel how do I know what to say if I don’t have a script?

    • BabyAngel says:

      You will always get a script unless specified. If you’re not given a script then you need to find a Disney scene to reenact… And do it REALLY well. But make it yours of course.

  38. What if I want to audition online because I live far away from where all auditions are who would I have to contact or what website would I have to got to, to be able to do that?

  39. Myles Lewis says:

    Does anybody know where to find a good acting agency?

  44. Hey, I would like to know if there is anyway to submit an online audition or Showreel?.

  45. Christal singh says:

    Hi, I’m 14 years old and live in Canada. I’m currently with an agency that sends my to some modeling auditions, ive gotten a few modeling gigs like being in a science text book, but I really want to be an actress.I can sing, play the piano, act and model (ive had lessons on all besides modeling). I got into a preforming arts school for singing, acting, and dancing. I’m just wondering where to start when getting an acting agent and wondering how good my chances are given the circumstances and my age?

  46. Well auditioning in front of a panel or the casting directors is quite scary, especially if it’s Disney.
    But you can send a mini video clip of your acting skills right? Says here, http://www.exploretalent.com/articles/3-ways-casting-industry-changed/
    If you could project awesomely on camera, you might as well surprise the casting directors.
    Of course it will also be helpful if you audition face-to-face with the panel coz you will actually build a personal connection with them.
    So, how about taking a step in shooting your own video clip?

  47. Hi, I’m 13 and I live in Ontario, Canada. When I was younger, I used to dream about being on TV. I love playing instruments, I love acting, dancing and singing .

  51. and im a good singer but not a good dancer

  52. I have been to the casting calls twice now, and although I did not get signed with them, I received very professional, encouraging feedback. The modeling industry is extremely competitive, so it wasn’t a surprise that I didn’t make it this time. They are super responsive to calls and emails. They provide a personal and caring touch that other agencies lack.

  119. Dhestiny Roberts says:

    Hello! I was wondering if we needed to memorize a monologue before going to an open casting call? I didn’t see anything under this page that stated if we would read off sides given to us at the audition, or how much time we would be given to look over those sides. I want to be as prepared as I can :). If we do need to have a piece memorized, do we bring in a copy of it? Also, what type of monologue would your company be looking for? Is there somebody I can contact to ask these questions?
    -Thank you for your time.
