    Wendy face character Audition

    Hi. I know that there have been tons of threads on this, but please hear me out. You guys seem to give wonderful advice. I love Peter Pan, and I've always been extremely jealous of Wendy. I would LOVE to be her. I plan to apply to the CP program as soon as they start doing the presentations this year. I have a few questions, and I was wondering if anyone could answer even one of them:
    1 I'm 5'1-5'2 (around there). Is that the right height for Wendy
    2 What do wendy's typically look like (im trying to figure out if i have the right look?)
    3 Would I possibly be cast as Wendy through CP?
    4 I've heard about auditions through here, but for the auditions would a british accent help for Wendy? I can learn one (I know she has one in the park)
    5 Is she a tough character to get? (because she probably isnt out as much as the other characters, like princesses?)
    6 Anything specific that the casting directors would be looking for?

    Re: Wendy face character Audition

    you're the right height, but it's just whether or not the casting director sees you as wendy or not.

    for WDW(not disneyland, not tokyo disneyland, etc). you'd go to the normal audition and be auditioning to be a character. if by chance they pull you aside and ask to fit you in wendy, great, and then in the process of seeing how you look in the costume they'll have you read lines as wendy and you can pull off a british accent but before then you won't really have a chance to show it off(And they won't be impressed if you just walk in faking a british accent the whole time).

    don't go in trying to dress yourself like the character you want to be, just go in as yourself, make sure your face is clean and that they can see it clearly(don't let your hair block their view of it).

    3) It depends on what Disney is looking for. But usually most CPs are not picked for face.

    4) That wouldn't be necessary.

    5). Not any harder then the other characters. In fact, she's easier then some (as she can be friends with Alice). I think Iridessa is probably the hardest one.

    Re: Wendy face character Audition

    I know exactly what you're going through. My character of choice, as some of the members here know, is Ursula (and yes I have seen men play Ursula...in the parades at Disney World.)

    With that said it's REALLY all about looks, height, and personality (for character standards.) I may be 6'5" but that shouldn't stop me from being cast as Ursula...I have everything else to offer (weight, voice, presence, and looks.) If you feel in your heart that you look, talk, act, and even move like Wendy Moira Angela Darling...then I say go for it. What they're looking for is positive attitudes, good movement, and charming personalities...and also the belief that when you are the character....you ARE the character. For example: When I put on my golden shell...that's all I need to make myself believe that I am, in fact, Ursula. Not the makeup, the costume, the hair, just that shell....I know I'm giving you a monologue on why I should be Ursula, but that's parallel to the point. I have such a passion and if the same emotes for you and Wendy than just do it.

    I would fly to Florida on the next available Audition date for Look A Likes if I could. (Money and school are always problematic for me.)

    But with such passion comes a great warning. If you are sent home DON'T GIVE UP!!! That's the first sign of a broken ego. If I was sent home (after a questioning of why to the judges.) I would bide my time, perfect everything that I saw wrong with what happened...and watch the Little Mermaid a few more hundred times...and then go to the next audition....Rome wasn't built in a day and getting a career at Disney ESPECIALLY as a face character is no small task nor is it an easy conquest (look at me I wanna be Ursula one of the most unseen face characters), but if you believe in yourself and try your hardest to get to where you wanna go, which is obviously Wendy...then go and don't lose hope.


    My home away from home! If I don't make it as a CP that's where I wanna work!

    Maybe I will see you at one of the auditions. I will be auditioning myself for a character performer role in the fall (and will keep on auditioning until I can hopefully pass someday).

    Good luck!

    so you will be auditioning for the next round of CP auditions?
    yes! maybe we will see each other.
    I heard these auditions aren't as bad as the open call ones...

    Yep. I will be auditioning to (hopefully) extend my CP.

    I didn't think the CP audition was that bad (I've been to the extension audition before). A little tricky at times, but not too bad.

    Re: Wendy face character Audition

    It's hard to say without a wig. The hair can be very distracting when trying to compare.

    but in some ways you do look like a Darling!

    Not exactly sure what Disney is looking for, however. Sometimes the face character, while a very beautiful woman, looks little like the actual character they portray.

    for instance, I often see Wendys with a small button nose when in your avatar she clearly has a noticable nose structure.

    Whatever the case may be, you are beautiful and i wish you the best of luck.

    I think you have to be a certain skin tone? Like a specific darkness idk...? that's my guess at least.

    Because she is currently the only black character (and will only be the second once Tiana comes along). So she requires very few friends.
