Open Audition to Become a Reporter for a National TV News Show to be Held on Sunday, February 12 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Madame Tussauds New York’s Newly Installed B&H Television Studios
Madame Tussauds New York is hosting an open casting call in search of a new entertainment reporter for the award-winning TV news show Teen/Kids News. Kids aged 13 to 19 are invited to audition on Sunday, February 12 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the attraction in the newly installed B&H television studio in the heart of Times Square.
Seated at a news desk amid wax figures of famous journalists such as Anderson Cooper, Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters, each applicant will be given the chance to read on-camera a pre-written 15-second story for a panel of judges. The producers of Teen/Kids News and Madame Tussauds will choose the teen who has the right stuff to become the show’s next entertainment reporter. The weekly half-hour program airs on more than 200 TV stations and is carried by educational channels to 12,600 schools.
All teens auditioning are encouraged to register in advance on Madame Tussauds’ website at: http://bit.ly/MTNYRegister and if younger than 18, teens must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Because Teen/Kids News will be shooting a report on the casting call, which will air, everyone auditioning who is under 18 will be required to have a parent or guardian sign a release form. The selected teen reporter will be given the opportunity to work with a professional news crew and cover a story for a future program. The teen will not receive any compensation for appearing on Teen/Kids News.
