Casting Call Released for Walt Disney World’s New Cirque du Soleil Show

We have learned that Cirque du Soleil released a new casting call that give us a little more insight into what we may be able to expect when the new show opens in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World.   Orlando Sentinel reported that the new show is looking for “a youth or adult who could play a 12-year-old Caucasian girl” as well as a height of 4 to 5 feet and a smaller, slim figure for the individual.  The casting call also shares that the character for the roll is “sensitive on the inside, yet fearless on the outside.”  The cast call stated that they need a minimum of two-year availability that would begin September 2019.


According to Orlando Sentinel, Disney Springs Vice President Matt Simon, said this about the show, “I can tell you that the concepts that I’ve seen for Cirque du Soleil are like none I’ve ever seen before. They are world-class and completely unexpected but truly capture an emotion and feeling that you can never feel anywhere other than on a Disney property.”

The previous Cirque du Soleil show, La Nouba ended forever on December 31st, 2017.  It looks like we will still be waiting until deep into 2019 at the earliest before there is a chance of debuting the new show.

Who else is looking forward to this new Cirque du Soleil show?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
