Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. Auditions in 2012
Most casting is done in Los Angeles, so if you live in other cities, especially outside the larger entertainment areas like L.A. and New York, you will need to get an agent that can get you into Nickelodeon audition in Los Angeles or New York.
Here is a checklist of what you will need to get on Nickelodeon.
1. Get your parents permission and support. You will need help in securing an agent and an audition. Also, most agents and casting directors will not deal with minors because minors cannot enter into a contract on their own. Your parent will need to enter into the acting contract with you.
2. Practice, practice, practice. Agents and Nickelodeon casting directors are looking for kids who have talent, passion and can memorize their lines. When meeting with Nickelodeon casting directors they will expect that you have talent and can do some acting. They may ask you to read a script or memorize some lines. Casting directors need to know that you can handle the role and practicing your acting skills will prepare you better to ace that audition once you do get it. The last thing you want is to work hard on getting that tryout for the producers or casting directors and freezing up or not performing well.
3. Find a good kids acting agent. You will not need to pay for an agent upfront, agents will make money when you do and a good agent will send you to the Nickelodeon tryouts in front of the people who actually cast the Nick channel shows.
4. Practice with your monologue. Yes all actors will need to have a monologue ready. Most actors, kids and adults should have more than one monologue ready to go at any time. Having a great monologue that you have rehearsed repeatedly is a necessity and all good child actors should have this covered. Whether you are practicing a monologue for your Nickelodeon tryout or your Disney casting call in 2012, it does not matter. get it ready and be prepared to perform it whenever asked. Make sure that you use an age appropriate monologue and have a comedic and dramatic one under your sleeve.
5. Learn to sing and dance- These days kids that audition for top Nickelodeon and Disney shows are expected to be versatile and be able to sing and dance if asked. Many shows have scenes in them that require the child actors to not only act but also do some singing and dancing.
