The following are audition tips from Disney. These are the audition tips they give for performers that will be auditioning in front of the casting directors that cast the Disney shows, Disney Cruise Lines, Disney Resort Shows and their international productions.
These are also great general audition tips for any audition you may be going on.
Be on time
Remember that your audition begins even before you arrive! Be sure to plan enough preparation and travel time for your audition. We can’t stress enough how important it is to arrive on-time to your audition… and in most cases this means at least 15 minutes before your scheduled audition time. Being late, no matter the reason, can negatively affect your audition, or prevent you from being seen altogether.
Headshot & Resume
No matter what kind of role you’re auditioning for, it’s a good idea to have a Headshot and Resume on hand.
Good quality photos on standard letter size paper are best. Make sure the photo you use is representative of the way you look now. If you change your appearance in any way, be sure to update your headshot. As you choose a photo, remember that your headshot is the calling card you leave behind for the Disney Casting team to remember you. Make sure it’s the best possible representation of who you are.
Keep your resume to one page and list your most recent experience and accomplishments. Don’t worry if you have limited experience.
Affix your resume securely to the back of your headshot, or have it printed directly on the back. Also, remember that we’ll need to keep the photo & resume.
