For MNSSHP and MVMCP, I know it has to be preferenced (and I'm sure the higher the color code, the better).

This is a little bit off topic, but how often are 'rare' characters trained? I hope that makes sense. The reason I ask, is because over in DL they had that character day, where esmerelda came out. Would esmerelda's friend be specifically trained for the event? Or are rare character friends always there, but just don't get the chance to come out?

There are people who are friends with the rare characters (usually). However, they just aren't brought out.

How do you find out if an audition is doing face characters? I've checked the website people say it would be on, but I can't find it. I would be going to the Chicago audition.... I would only go to it if they are looking for face characters. Or do they all do face characters?

Also, is there any kind of interview at these auditions? Like do they sit down and talk to you at all? It would be good if they gave us some one-on-one time.

In general they are always on the look out for potential face characters. They do have auditions where they look for specific ones but at least at CP auditions they will just generally look. There is no one-on-one time. You just dance and animate and thats it.

If you're doing the CP- they are looking for face as well as fur at every one. However, you will be trained in fur as well as face if you are cast.

On the auditions website, the auditions strictly for Face (Full time, part time, seasonal) will be called "Character Look-A-Like Auditions."

There are no interviews. It's like a regular theatre or performance audition- all they look at is your talent.

Hey there guys! So I'm new to disboards, my name is Savannah!

So I'll be old enough in summer 2012 to be a Disney Character... in June.

Can I audition while I'm not 16 yet?

If I want a summer job as a character, when should I audition?

Thanks!

(Sorry to be a stalker but I've been reading a little bit of this thread & you guys are pretty darn helpful, I must say!)

Rapunzel should be shorter. :P She's teeny in that movie!

That's just a personal preference though. Because then I would get to play her.

You have to be 16 when you audition, so unfortunately you have to wait until June.

Ohh, ok. Well I think I'll be auditioning around this time next year, so I'll be 16. So what if I were to get to job, say, in March 2012, but can only work June-August 2012... would they sign me for that if they knew they needed me? Or would I have to attend an audition closer to June?

Do you know if a "summer" job as a character is June-August?
I start school around Aug 8 usually.... so I would basically miss my first month of school... Idk if that would work out...??

(I'm in public high school)

I think you have to be invited to an audition while you're in your phone interview for the CP.

No- they want you to apply before you audition.
