The Odd Squad Seeking Kids for Lead Roles Auditions

TV Show Kids Auditions

There is a new audition for child actors who are looking for their breakout role to stardom. PBS is now casting kids for lead roles in their popular show “The Odd Squad”. Kids who are between the ages of 10 and 13 are now being cast for two new agent roles. Filming will be in Toronto and auditions are being held by self submission videos.

About “The Odd Squad”

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]

What They Are Looking For

Casting directors are seeking boys and girls for two lead roles in the show. They are casting kids and young teens who are between the ages of 10 and 13. The show is filming in Toronto.
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.

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

    What if the person you wish to hire in a wheelchair is also African?
    Would you then look at casting non-African actors?
