You're welcome. One thing I've learned since returning is that at larger audition locations they have costume and makeup for face characters, but mine was too small for that! I'm guessing yours will be a bit larger!

I thought the auditions would have hundreds of people... but that's not what I've been hearing.

A friend of mine auditioned in Chicago - she said there were about 100 and they did have makeup. I wonder how they decide

Question, do you have to be thin in order to get a character? I'm not a perfect sphere, but I'm not a size 2 either. I'm around 5'8"-5'10" (everyone gives me a different height lol.), if that makes any difference....

I don't expect to be a princess, so I am not concerned about that.

TIA!

For the most part, no. A few have to be "fitted" but most of them are fine.

Newell, you'll be fine! Like the previous person said, they really ARE looking for people with extremes in heights...for once it's great to be really short or really tall! Best of luck

this is for anyone who has already applied and interviewed with charcter performer as their first pick.

I know the wait is long and we all thought we wouldnt hear anything until AFTER the audition. Not true! (YAY!)

Anyway.. we will get an email with audtion information. We will also will get a letter inviting us to audition. So yes we DO get to hear back in 2 to 3 weeks.

I think this will be a relief to some of us out there.

Well yeah, you get that. I received that too. But you don't get a definite yes/no until after the audition. That's the part that stinks.

It is in 2 parts. The first part is animation. You have to act something out (for example- making a sandwich). The second part is dance. They teach you a routine. That's pretty much it.

Some people may also be invited for a puppet audition, and I heard there may also be a more difficult dance routine for some people.
