Adding to the plethora of entertainment already announced for Buena Vista Street, (and the lot of unannounced offerings for Cars Land) another group has been added to the roster. The Red Car News Boys have been rumored for a while and here is the official posting on Disney Auditions…
Disney Parks Talent Casting is seeking male, youthful, well-rounded Singer/Dancer/Actors for The Red Car News Boys. This high-energy group of 1920s/30s-era paperboys will take to the streets of Disney California Adventure Park as they sing and dance to authentic period tunes. Some roles will emphasize strong singing skills while other roles will emphasize strong dancing skills. Performers of all ethnicities are encouraged to attend.
Invitational callbacks will be held Thursday, March 29. Rehearsals begin mid-May; performances begin mid-June.
