If you're young and talented and you dream about an acting career, the Disney Company might be your best choice. Prepare yourself and attend the auditions. You have nothing to lose and you will have a great experience that will help you for the rest of your life.
Disney is known as one of the biggest entertainment companies around the world. Millions of guests are entertained every year and thousands of extraordinary events are produced in their Theme Parks & Resorts, in addition to their very popular Disney Channel on TV. There is a great range of ways in which you can share your talent with Disney.
If you decide to go to an audition, here are some aspects you must know. First of all, some of the present Cast Members were asked to share their experience from the auditions. Their stories are featured often and you can watch them in order to find out what you need. Also, if you have further questions, you can ask them via e-mail.
Once you get to the place where the audition is being held, a Cast Member will be there to help you with everything you need. It is very important to arrive on time because the company cares very much when it comes to punctuality. You need at least 15 minutes to complete your check-in and also to prepare for the audition. Especially if you go to that location for the first time, make sure you plan your travel carefully.
The audition room might be quite intimidating, but you have to relax and have fun. People from here were children too, so they know exactly how it feels to be at an audition. Be confident and do your best. A Disney Casting Director will run the audition and he will give you some instructions in order to help you. The room setup will be according to the sort of audition that you are attending. Another essential aspect is that most Disney auditions happen with the doors closed. Even though they know it's very important for children to be supported by family and friends, they consider that the audition is the place where kids have to go on their own. Those who accompany you will have to wait in the waiting areas.
You may also be required to perform a monologue. A monologue is an uninterrupted speech directed towards another character. As an actor, you must have a monologue on hand for every situation. It's like your business card. Even if you are not required to have one prepared, you never know when you will be asked to recite one. Depending on the role you're auditioning for, it is best to have at least one comedic monologue and one dramatic monologue, well-rehearsed, at all times. In order to best choose the monologue that is right for your range, get in an acting class!
There are some examples that prove the fact that the Disney Company is the best place for children and teenagers to start their acting career. Selene Gomez is one of them. She was discovered in 2004 by Disney. Firstly, she played a guest star on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and she did a great job. After this, she got more and more roles, like one in Hanna Montana and another on Wizards of Waverly Place as one of the main characters. She also started to record songs. Now, she is a famous and successful actress and singer and all this happened thanks to Disney.
Miley Cyrus is another good example of an actress who achieved her wide fame due to her role as Hanna Montana on the sitcom released by Disney Channel. Ashley Tisdale makes no exception from the situation. She rose to prominence thanks to her role as Maddie Fitzpatrick in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody which is also a Disney Channel production.
