iCarly auditions and tryouts

So you want to become a child star. iCarly is a popular show on Nickelodeon and many kids would love to tryout for the show and land a recurring or even a one time walk on role – Find out how to get iCarly auditions and casting call information for Nickelodeon.

So how did Carly get on the hit show iCarly? well, she had to go and audition for the part. Yes, even kids that are very talented need to audition and ace their auditions to actually land that career making part in a hit television or cable network show.

iCarly is one of the most popular shows on the Nickelodeon network and boasts some great child talent in the show.

So what is the iCarly show all about? well, it’s about a very talented young lady named Carly Shaw.

iCarly is about Carly Shay. Carly create her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam and Freddie. iCarly stars Miranda Cosgrove as Carly, Jennette McCurdy as Sam, Nathan Kress as Freddie, Jerry Trainor as Spencer, and Noah Munck as Gibby.

iCarly is shot in the Los Angeles area. Actually, the show is taped at Nickelodeon studios that is on Sunset Blvd. in the city of Los Angeles California.

So where did Miranda Cosgrove start her career and where was she before she landed her audition for the iCarly sitcom? Miranda Cosgrove, is an experienced young actress. Miranda actually starred in her first commercial when she was only 3 years old. At the young age of 9 she got a recurring role – actually a co-starring role on , Drake & Josh. Miranda also has experience as a child actress on the big screen. She had a role in the movie School of Rock with Jack Black.

So when Miranda landed that gig with Nickelodeon and iCarly, she already had a good amount of acting experience behind her. If you want to star in your own Nickelodeon show like iCarly, you too will have to get some acting experience like Miranda. The way you get acting experience is by going to auditions, blowing the casting directors away with your talent and landing a few roles.

To get to see casting directors and actually tryout for great roles you will need to get an agent. Without an agent, Hollywood casting directors will not see you. There are no open casting calls for iCarly or any Nickelodeon series. You will need to get inside information on new shows in production and only a Hollywood agent that works with the iCarly show and Nickelodeon casting directors will have that information and be able to send you out to see them.

So first things first, before getting that audition for iCarly in 2012 or any other Nickelodeon audition in 2012, you will need to find a good agent.

You will most likely have to have some experience like Miranda did. Maybe a small movie role or a commercial. You will need to have a resume that has a few credits so casting directors can look at what you can do, know you have done it before and have some faith in your abilities to perform under pressure and in front of the cameras.

  • Ms. Francine Briggs (Mindy Sterling) is a very strict English teacher at Ridgeway Secondary School who shows an obvious dislike for children.
  • Mr. Howard (David St. James) is a strict and unenthusiastic teacher who hates almost everything including his wife.
