Disney on the look-out for young SA talent for new lifestyle series

DISNEY Africa is hunting for young and fresh South African talent to grace TV screens in a talent search like no other.

Only fun-loving teens, aged 13 to 18, with a passion for Disney channel’s Violetta and who have positive attitudes will be able to make the cut for new lifestyle show I (love) Violetta!

Set to launch later this year, the companion series will feature three new South African presenters who will re-live the best moments in recent Violetta episodes.

Telenovella Violetta is about a musically talented teenager navigating the trials of growing up. The show is at the No 1 spot as most viewed show on Disney Channel in South Africa.

I (love) Violetta will be a lifestyle show. The vibrant presenters will anticipate what happens next, discuss favourite characters, showcase choreography and offer fashion advice to young peeps.

The South African production company will hold auditions in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban over three weekends.

The likes of Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera shot to fame after joining the Mickey Mouse Club in 1993. All three went on to become global superstars, earning multiple awards.

South African talent now has the chance to enter and make history as the first from this country on Disney Channel.

After the entry process that closes mid-June, hopeful candidates will be short-listed and invited to audition in front of judges – the directors of the series and a Disney representative.

The show will be pre-recorded and aired on Disney Channel later in the year, in conjunction with the launch of the third season of Violetta.

    I’m so grateful that young south African actors can now broaden their imagine and think out the box because a lot of recognition sets out a big road for us. I’m Mpumi Majola and I would like to be chosen to host such an amazing show and get learn more about broadcasting and gain more confidence in myself and I hope I could do the same for my fellow youth.

    Hi my name is Nelly Ntuli from Delmas in Mpumalanga and I’m 16 years old. I’m a vibrant person with a lot of personality, being a presenter have always been my passion since from the young age. Self confidence is who I am, watching a violetta show it is fulfilling and becoming a violetta family crew it would be an honour to me.I believe that it doesn’t matter where you come from everything is possible, if you put in effort and have passion for what you do. If I get a chance I’ll blow judges minds away.

    But believe you me I will boom off the judges and they will never regret and give it them what they expected
    So my wish is to be the next Violetta

    I would love to audition for a presenter on (I love) Violetta. Please advise how I might proceed. I’m 16 years old and love acting, drama, dancing and fashion. I am well-spoken, have long red hair and 1,74 cm tall. I’ve done a modelling course but feel verbal communication is much more rewarding.

    I would love to hear back from Disney SA.

    Regards,
    Georgina
