Are you looking for a TV show audition for your child? Does your little actor have what it takes be one of the stars of a PBS series? PBS is now casting lead roles for their popular children’s series The Odd Squad. Casting directors are now accepting video submissions from kids who are local to the Toronto area.
About the Show
Each episode of ODD SQUAD includes two 11-minute cases in which the agents investigate weird and unusual phenomena around them and use math to put things right. From recapturing a gallon-sized blob that has separated into smaller pieces, to dealing with a slew of unicorns, dinosaurs and wizards that have escaped from books, there is no occurrence that is too strange for the Odd Squad as they face off against various villains that wreak havoc around town. [PBS]
Outside filming dates: December 6th – 16th. Series is shooting until March 2017
Pay Rate: New Media ACTRA Scale
Filming in Toronto so actors must be Toronto locals
Roles & Requirements
Two new lead agent roles are now being cast for the PBS series. Casting directors are seeking boys and girls ages
10 to 13 for the new roles. They are seeking young actors who are local to the Toronto area.
Agent Opaganda: Male or female. Ages 10 to 13. Any ethncitity. This role calls for a child who uses a wheelchair. [Production would like to cast someone who actually uses a wheelchair.] Only send in a self tape submission if you match those specs.
Agent Opaganda is a super serious agent who will sometimes say things in a way that sounds like he or she is trying to be friendly and helpful, but when you listen closely they’re not very helpful at all. Unlike Opaganda’s more deadpan partner, Opaganda is enthusiastic about his or her work and thinks that busting people on rules can be very enjoyable. This is a principal role.
Agent Oke: African, Canadian. Male or female. Ages 10 to 13 years old.
Agent Oke is a super serious agent who is dry, blunt and a stickler for the rules. Oke is not mean, he or she is just doing their job, and just isn’t that interested in your feelings. Oke doesn’t really get jokes, but does sometimes laugh at things that aren’t funny. His or her social skills aren’t the greatest. This is also a principal role.
Instructions for Application
If you have a child that fits the role you are asked to send in a video submission to apply. To get the full submission details visit larissamaircasting.com.
