Casting Call: Disney Seeking Kids 9-12 For “That’s So Raven” Spin-off.

Disney Channel and “That’s So Raven” star Raven-Symone are working on a spin- off to the popular show, which aired between 2003 and 2007. Disney Channel casting is searching nationwide for talented kids between the ages of 9 and 12 to submit videos in hopes of landing a role on the upcoming “That’s So Raven” Spin-off.

Interested kids need to download their script provided and create a short video of themselves performing the lines given and upload it through Disney’s Applause App. Get the Applause App here.

Sources say that Raven-Symone will reprise her role as Raven Baxter as well as executive produce the show.

The original “That’s So Raven” show focused on a teenage Raven who was blessed (or cursed) with the ability to see the future. No matter how hard she tried to fix things before they could go awry, she failed in the most comedic ways. The script often called for Raven-Symone to don hilarious costumes. In the new unnamed pilot, Raven-Symone is now raising her own pre-teen with psychic abilities.

Casting Call: Child Actor For Lead Role In Steven Spielberg Film “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara”

Steven Spielberg’s adaptation  of the Pulitzer Prize winning  novel, “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara” is now in  pre-production. The story revolves a young Jewish boy, secretly baptized by a Catholic maid who subsequently was taken from his Jewish home to be raised as a Catholic.

Spielberg is looking to  cast a  boy between the ages of  6-9 who looks Jewish Italian. An Italian accent is not required for the role. The movie will be  filmed on location in Bologna and other parts of Italy and  is scheduled to be released at the end f 2017.

kidnapping-of-edgaro-mortara-movie

The following information  was  released by the Maryland Film  Organization  regarding the  film.

Steven Spielberg film “THE KIDNAPPING OF EDGARDO MORTARA”

EDGARDO — BOY age 6-9 to play 6 years old. This is a unique and very challenging part for a truly special boy. The story deals with the complexity of an extremely intelligent and gifted child’s situation – his desire to return to his family and the faith of his ancestors, pitted against his ability to learn the Catechism and engage with the Pope on a level far beyond his years. HE SHOULD APPEAR TO BE A JEWISH ITALIAN child. We are not looking for any kind of Italian accent. LEAD.

STORY LINE — Steven Spielberg is making a film about the true story of EDGARDO MORTARA – a 6 year old Jewish boy from Bologna who was reported to have been secretly baptized by a maid, and was deemed by the Catholic church therefore to be Christian. Pope Pius IX (to be played by Mark Rylance) decreed that the boy could not remain with his Jewish family. He was seized by the Papal State and taken to the Vatican where his indoctrination into Catholicism began. This was a cause célèbre of mid-nineteenth century European politics and the domestic and international outrage against the pontifical state’s actions may have contributed to its downfall amid the unification of Italy. This is an incredible story of real historical relevance.

To submit: Email delisicreative@gmail.com.
Subject line: EDGARDO SUBMISSION / Name of boy, your agency, city/state.
Body of email: Your agency contact info, boys name/age/d.o.b, city/state of residence, along w/current non retouched photos.

If you want to include a brief introduction, bio or resume, please do! Edgar needs to be highly intelligent…. please note any related, special, or fun facts so we get to know him! –

Expected to hit the  stage in spring 2018,  Tony  Award-winning scenic and costume designer Christopher Oram along with  Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage will both be working on the show.

Disney is  looking  for  experienced dancers over the age of 18 to audition in either  LA or Chicago January 12-14. Disney released the following statement

This Broadway-bound Frozen, a full-length stage work told in two acts, is the first and only incarnation of the tale that expands upon and deepens its indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film’s creators. Like the Disney Theatrical Broadway musicals that have come before it, it is a full evening of theatre and is expected to run two and a half hours.

Written by a trio of Oscar® winners, Frozen features music and lyrics by the creators of the film score Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit, Up Here) and EGOT-winner Robert Lopez (Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon, Up Here) and a book by Jennifer Lee (Wreck-It Ralph), the film’s screenwriter and director (with Chris Buck). Frozen won 2014 Oscars for Best Song (“Let It Go”) and Best Animated Feature.

Frozen’s director is Michael Grandage, a Tony Award® winner (Red) and director of three Olivier Award-winning Outstanding Musicals (Merrily We Roll Along, Grand Hotel and Guys & Dolls), and Tony winner Christopher Gattelli (Newsies, South Pacific, The King and I) is choreographer.
