About the Disney Movie “A Wrinkle in Time”

According to the novel writer Madeleine Lengle’s website, “The story follows Meg Murry, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. She claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a “tesseract,” which, if you didn’t know, is a wrinkle in time. Meg’s father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father”?

    I am an aspiring actress who would love to have even the slightest chance of being apart of A Wrinkle In Time. I have a great interest in anything to do with Disney and I would love to work together with other actors to play off and strengthen each others characters and to also make friends in the process. I believe I would be a great fit for the show because of my Hardworking attitude, Overall friendliness, and my ability to be serious and joking at proper times. I am only 14 but I am sure that I can pass off for a 15 or 16 year old and I would jump at the chance to even audition to be on this spectacular show.
