The Sanderson Sisters from “Hocus Pocus” join Disney Villains during the show in front of Cinderella Castle three or four times during the hard-ticket Halloween event.

The casting call states rehearsals will begin in mid-July. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is on select nights from August through Halloween. Exact dates have not been announced.

Performers should vocally and physically impersonate Bette Midler as Winifred Sanderson, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah Sanderson, and Kathy Najimy as Mary Sanderson. Here are the descriptions of each sister from the casting call:

Winifred Sanderson:  Winifred Sanderson is the leader of the Sanderson sisters and the main antagonist. She is the eldest and the wickedest of the sisters, as well as the most intelligent. She is very sensitive to people calling her ugly and she is prone to being melodramatic.”

Mary Sanderson: Mary Sanderson, the middle sister, is often complimenting and comforting Winifred as she constantly seeks her approval. She has the ability to sniff out the presence of children and loves to eat. She is the most observant of the three and she sports a crooked mouth.”

Sarah Sanderson: Sarah Sanderson is the youngest and most beautiful Sanderson sister. She is not particularly intelligent and she is often prancing around and goofing off. She uses a siren-like ability to lure children through song. She loves to play with people and hates those who reject her.”

Candidates must sing well including “tight harmony, excellent comic timing, and high movement ability.” The posting asks performers to sing “I Put A Spell On You,” famously featured in the “Hocus Pocus” film and “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular.”

Submissions will be accepted through April 12, 2024, by 11:30 p.m. EST. Potential in-person callbacks are scheduled for May 10,  2024, in Orlando. Performers will only be notified by April 26 if they are being considered for a callback.

Applicants must be at least 18 and authorized to work in the United States. Disney College Program Cast Members are not eligible unless they are 8 weeks from the end of their program.
