Disney’s Newsies – Musical Auditions

One of film’s most unforgettable musicals – one that helped jump start the career of none other than Batman himself is looking for new stars to grace the Disney stage. Now up and coming actors and dancers from around the country have the chance to make their big theatrical break in a toe tapping, award winning classic. Disney’s Newsies is set to rock the nation and open auditions have been scheduled. This could be your opportunity to star in a bonafide hit musical production.

Disney’s Newsies is based on the 1992 film that helped launch the career of Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, The Fighter, The Prestige) and featured stellar performances from such acting greats as Academy Award winner Robert Duvall (The Godfather, The Apostle, Deep Impact), Oscar nominees Ann-Margret (Grumpy Old Men, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, Tommy) and Michael Lerner (Barton Fink, Elf, Eight Men Out) and Bill Pullman (Independence Day, While You Were Sleeping, Sleepless in Seattle). The story of a group of young newspaper boys who went on strike to fight against the evils of big business charmed audiences around the globe and the stage debut last year earned even more praise and a whopping eight Tony Award nominations. This is the show to be a part of for any young up aspiring performer and now you have the chance of a lifetime. Open casting calls for this amazing show are listed below.

    I am Caucasian. I have chestnut colored hair, I have brown eyes with a hint of green, I'm 5'7 1/2". I look older than I am. I've always wanted to be an actress. I still to this day, recite my favourite lines from my favourite movies and TV shows (such a teenwolf). I can cry at the drop of a hat. I just have to think about something sad. I can get mad with the snap of your fingers, just by thinking of something that made me mad before and calm down with in seconds. I have great control over my emotions when necessary. I always dreamed about being an actress or a model. I'm not a good singer. I'm somewhat good at dancing but I don't have much rhythm. I would love to hear back.

  10. My name is Janet Jaramillo.
    Race ; Hispanic (Mexican )
    Height ; 4'11
    Hair color ; Black
    Eyes color ; Dark Brown
    Hobbies ; Track , singing
    Appearance ; not to dark, or not to light skin.

    I think I should have a role on this, I have been in chorus , I guess my voice is okay, but you'll never know. I can act (depends on what character I have) being a actor had been my dream ever since, but I never got a chance to become one in real life with real producers. It's really hard for me, because my parents are Mexicans and doesn't know how to help me become a actor and besides they don't know English. Otherwise I think it would be a good thing for a Hispanic girl like me should be actor. Well I'm an actor , I don't plan to become all jack up in the future like other celebrity's , I actually care about my future. If y'all ever call me, make sure there's a translater for my parents, so they can support me of often.

    Thank you for reading this.

  11. Greetings,

    My name is Candace Bryant. I am 28, and will turn 29 next Monday.

    I have been blessed with the gift of singing, perfect pitch,acting and writing music at birth. Over the years I have had the opportunity to sit under some amazing talent that have made it into the music/entertainment industry.

    I am one that believes when it's my time, I will shine bright, until then I will continue to cultivate my gifts and use them to be a blessing to others. I am seeking the opportunity to pour out to the world what God gave me. I am the vessel that has allowed myself to be used by God for his glory and I will not compromise for anyone.

    I have auditioned for many competitions such BET's Sunday Best, Taking the Stage (local event in my city) and few other. Though I received more NO's than anything I will continue to press my way through the world until my time comes.

    I am destined for greatness and I will never give up on this journey.

    I thank you in advance for the opportunity that awaits me.

    Sincere Thanks,
    Candace A. Bryant
