Disney Channel and Disney XD Tryouts 2013 / 2014

Disney Channel and Disney XD Tryouts 2013 / 2014

Disney Channel Auditions for Kids and Talent Search is on for 2013 and 2014.

The search is on this July!

The network just announced that the open casting call will be held in late July in San Antonio Texas. If you have always dreamed on turning on the TV and seeing yourself in one of their shows, here is your chance!

Disney Channel and Disney XD do an open casting call every year around the spring. This year they changed it up a bit and are holding the annual event in the summer. The late scheduling made some rumors fly that maybe there will not even be a Disney / Disney XD casting call in 2013, but we can lay those rumors to rest now and be assured that, yes, it will happen.

Texas is a popular state for Disney Channel tryouts since this is their second time coming to Texas in the last few years. Previous casting calls were held in Kansas City, Richmond VA and Austin Texas.

As in previous years, Disney Channel is seeking kids who are 10 to 17 with an interest and hopefully a talent that involves acting, singing and dance. The casting call is part of their effort to find new talent for upcoming shows and series. This is also a good way for people outside of California to get that Disney audition that they have been dreaming of and maybe even land a very coveted spot on one of the very popular shows already on air or to be considered for new and upcoming projects that the rest of us don’t yet even know about.

If your dream is to be a Disney Star like Selena Gomez than this is a chance that can’t be missed because the next tryouts will most likely be held a year from now in 2014. You can see the details of the last one they had here.

The Disney Tryouts for 2013 are coming to San Antonio Texas.

The open casting call is scheduled for
July 27th 2013 and July 28th 2013 from 90AM to 1PM.

The 2 days are setup by last name. All talent whose name begins with A through M will need to tryout on July 27th. All talent whose name starts with N through Z will need to tryout on Sunday, July 28th.

Disney Channel Auditions
2013 / 2014 Disney Casting

All talent and their families are advised to park at the public parking that is next to the Mariot because parking at the Marriot will not be available. As is prvious years, the event will surely be crowded. Thousands of kids and their families come to the tryouts so make sure that you get there in time to be seen. All talent will have to register when they get in and then wait for their audition time. It may be a long wait so come prepared with water and snacks and whatever you may need to get through a long wait in line.

You must have a parent or legal guardian in attendance with you. No one who is under the age of 18 will be allowed to audition alone. This is the official Disney / Disney XD casting call and as always there is never any charge to tryout.

If you are planning on coming from out of town, please make sure to reserve your rooms early since these events have been known to get many out of town visitors and rooms at the hotel will fill up quickly.

Kids with and without agents are all welcome to come and tryout.

What to expect:

  • Expect to have to wait for sometime to be seen. There will be thousands there all waiting for their shot.
  • You will have to register on arrival.
  • You will fill out an application which will serve as your short resume and give casting directors some background on you.
  • Once you arrive and register, you will be given a 1 page application form that will serve as a sort of resume. The application will ask for things like your name, your contact info, your parents contact info, where you live. You will need to write in any experience or special talents you may or may not have (experience is not required).
  • If you have an agent or manager and other background info about you.
  • You will also most likely be given a short script to memorize that you will be using to audition with.
  • You will be waiting for sometime so be sure to come prepared with water, drinks, snacks, etc.
  • Once you are called into the audition, you will have only about 1 minute to impress the powers that be. Yes it’s a very short tryout but they have to see 1000’s of others that same day. So be prepared to dazzle in 30 seconds or less.

This will probably be the one and only Disney Channel talent search in 2013 so If you can’t make it out to San Antonio Texas in July, you may have to wait until 2014 when they will be going to a different city. The last event that was held was over a year ago and it was in Kansas City.

    Hello its me again. I forgot to mention most of what I can do or cant. I can’t make cartoons and comics.I am good at acting. I practice acting by myself and I’m not sure if I can sing, but if you give me something to sing maybe I can sing well. I can do the robot dance. I’m a good at flips and not very good at fake crying. That’s pretty much of what I cant do. I forgot to mention that I am a boy. so please let me know!

    Reason for wanting to be an actor: I would like to be an actor because I want to be a role model for little kids all over the country. I want them to see me and say “I want to be just like Hannah when I grow up!” Another reason I want to be an actor is I’ve always loved acting and singing. In 5th grade the high school play director asked me act and sing in the high school play! That’s the moment I knew I wanted to be an actor. I just want to make a a difference, do what I love, be a role model, and create another classic Disney or Disney XD tv show! One problem I have with completing my dream is the money and cost. I’m not like some people and just have $2,000 laying around to go to Texas or some other state..:( so if you are a director, movie producer, or someone who can help me accomplish my dream please please please contact me! Thank you for reading my story, hope to hear from you!:)

    Name- Catherine Ann Grizzard
    Age- 11(Turning 12 VERY soon)
    D.O.B- March 22, 2002
    Talent- Singing & Acting

    Thanks so much for this opportunity! I would love to be on Disney channel because it would be an amazing experience and jump start my acting career. I have always had a love for singing and acting and even though I don’t dance well but I am a fast and exceptional learner. I have some experience with acting because I am in the springer academy at Columbus GA and I have been in a musical there called Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I have also been in various school plays. Although I don’t do ballet I have performed in the nutcracker with my singing group the Voices of the Valley who are connected to CSU. We sang a variety of “ah’s” in the nutcracker. I am used to the stage and audiences. I have performed solo many times but nothing major. I love the feeling I get when I’m on stage and I want to act and sing for the rest of my life. I always finish a job when I start one so I won’t give up. No matter what everyone says like ” it’s one in a million”, or ” you could never make it”. I have found something I love and I want to do it. I am not asking for a huge role or a TV show, I am asking for a chance… A chance to prove myself. I am eager to go to the casting call this summer (though it does not say directly where is is on this website) and I hope I can prove myself then or now. Thanks so much for this amazing opportunity! If you would like to get in contact with me to learn more or etc. please email because you have the power to make one girls dream come true. Don’t forget Dream Big!

  34. Hope

    My name is Hope Rhynas, and I am 14 years old. I am bubbly, friendly, and enjoy being around and meeting new people. I am from London uk. I have a southern English accent however; I am able to do a very believable American accent. I currently attend Tring Park School for the Performing Arts which I have been attending for 3 years. Here, I study 20 hours of professional performing arts training per week. My talent includes acting, musical theatre and pop, also dancing. I have been in many local musicals and productions including, Annie, CATS, Grease, Penny Lane, High School Musical, West Side story, and many more. I have also been in many semi-professional productions (Tring Park) such as, Matilda, peter pan, Footloose, Seussical the musical, The Wiz, Mamma Mia and more. I’ve had experience of Solos, duets and group performances. At Tring Park School, I study acting in depth, and closely study the emotion and feelings of characters, also the physicality of characters to make sure the part I am playing is believable and captures the audience’s attention. I also closely study musical theatre, and dance (ballet, tap, modern). My drama and musical theatre teachers often say I have “the spark” on stage, which not many professionals have. I can adjust to any role given and am able to show a wide range of emotion, to produce an excellent level of acting or singing.

  35. Sirya

    Hi ! My name is Sirya. I was born 10th may 2001, I love sing and act, I live in Italy but I’m really good in English. I act in Italian and in English, and I sing too but I sing only in English. My celebrities are Selena Gomez,Demi Lovato, Zendaya, Bella Thorne and Justin Bieber. I watch Disney Channel to when I was little and I only watched in English so I would try to get an audition with Disney channel or with nickelodeon because I don’t like Disney channel Italy and I tried to have an audition here in Italy but they don’t chase me. I know that maybe you don’t choose me but I want to try. Please can you give me a chance for an audition the next year? Thank you very much. I’m so sorry maybe I wrote some words wrong.

  37. Taylor Horan

    Name: Taylor
    Birthday: August 14, 2000
    Talent: Singing and acting
    Idols: One Direction, Demi Lovato, Cher Lloyd, and Ed Sheeran
    Reasoning: I have always wanted to be an actress. I always like to put on a show and be in the spot light. I have been told by many people I have the talent to be an actress. I have always been singing. I sing wherever I am. Home, with a friend, in the store, or even just walking around. I have been also told by a lot of people that I should go on the X Factor but I would much rather prefer being on Disney Channel or Nickelodeon. I am from a small town in Iowa so there isn’t much of famous people from around here. It is hard to become famous in Iowa because it is so small. I like to be in anything. I could do a scary movie to a musical for little kids. Please consider. It has been a dream for my whole life and nothing is going to change because I know I can do it.
