How To: Audition for the Disney Channel

Audition for the Disney Channel

Are you a young aspiring actress? A triple threat? Many top singers and entertainers today got their start on the Disney Channel. In this video, learn how to get that audition with the Disney Channel... Who knows, it could be your big break!

You Will Need:
• Acting, singing, and dancing skills
• A headshot and resume
• A talent agent
• A computer with internet access
• Entertainment industry trade papers
• A demo tape
• A list of Disney casting directors

Step 1: Prepare
Prepare acting, singing, and dancing pieces to perform. Most Disney Channel shows require at least two of the three, so stay ahead of the game by showing you're a triple threat.

Step 2: Get headshot and resume
Have a headshot and resume ready to take with you to the audition. This is a requirement for Disney auditions.

Step 3: Get an agent
Secure representation from a talent agent to ensure the best chance of landing an audition with Disney. Although some auditions are open, many require submission by an agent.

Step 4: Go online
Go to and view the audition calendar regularly to check for open casting calls and locations. Arrive early and be prepared to wait; there are usually thousands of people in attendance.

Step 5: Check the trades
Check out entertainment trade papers, available in bookstores and libraries, for audition listings.

Step 6: Submit a demo
Submit a demo tape of you or your child singing, dancing, and acting to casting directors that cast Disney shows. A list of these can be found online or in trade directories listed by show.

Trivia: Famous Disney Mickey Mouse Club alumni include Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera, who starred at the same time on the show.
