So on saturday U was visiting some friend who just move to huntington beach from our home of sacramento. One of my friends is perfect to be a princess and has been in theater her whole life, so we figured shed be a shoe in. She asked me to keep her company and give some support while she waited in line, so I thought if I'm waiting in this huge line I might as well go in with her. Well we went in and got cut first round. I expected it of course, but it was pretty shocking for her. The odd thing was that the people they were picking were not at all the people we would have picked. While we waited we scoped out the competition and we picked a handful that we thought were totally princess material, only to see them get cut first round with us. They seemed to be picking really really tall girls, like 5'10"/6', or little brunettes with fair skin, and few red heads (one that looked particularly old). My thoughts were they must have been casting for show whites, and then I don't know. I thought maybe Cinderella, cuz I hear they like her to be tall, but the girls they picked definitely weren't cinderella material. What are your thoughts? The men they picked weren't exactly prince charming material either. Weird.

Tall eh? that doesnt sound right! All the princesses we met were petite. The lady who was Belle should have been cut! She acted stuckup and didnt say a word to us!!!:~D

When they tell you to show up for a face character audition I thought they usually don't tell you what characters you are auditioning for, not even as generic as "princesses." They just give height, etc. characteristics then tell you after you are hired.

This was the audition call sheet for Saturday's audition... This is pretty typical of what they specify - not much.

Its easier to make all the Santas look a like if they give them a fake beard.

Well I know that they don't specify what they are casting for, we just wanted to be princesses :D I guess that they could have been casting for comepletely different characters that I never even thought of, like random parade people, or pirates, or whatever else I can't think of right now. I was just on the princess mind track...

most auditions are for all character performers unless otherwise noted.so the tall and really weird people might have been chosen for fur. if you fit only the look of one princess it is most likely you will not be chosen. Disney wants versatile people. Most princesses i know are multiple... that sounds weird. Anywho, im going to audition tomorrow. im very excited. Oh and none of the girls look the same as they do all done up.
