Question Is there a Star Wars Stormtroopers Audition?

Is there a separate audition for stormtroopers? How do you get to do this? Are they looking for anything special? Thanks!

If you go to the Disney Auditions website and select WDW you will see the following posting. Please note however, it does not mention Storm Troopers. If memory serves me correctly, the roles NOT mentioned in the below posting are filled internally (i.e. you would need to attend a general audition however there is no guarantee of the character you would portray)

I know there is an audition for the storm troopers that perform on top of the roof, but it is an internal entertainment audition
