    • This casting call is from 2008. It is unlikely the production company will be able to respond to your request for career information.

      You may wish to contact talent agencies in your area. Send them a couple of good pictures of your son, along with a resume listing the productions he’s been in and the training he’s received in singing, dancing, and acting. If a local agent thinks there is work available for your son in the area they will call you in for a meeting to discuss the business with you. If the agency is already representing other actors very similar in appearance to your son, they may not follow-up with you. Keep making connections with other agencies in the state, and attend local filmmaking and acting workshops, seminars and social networking events.

      This is a business built almost entirely on relationships. Who you know is more helpful than anything else in getting work.

  5. I am Natalie and I am 12 years old. I can sing and act. I do musical theatre and am a strong actor and singer. I would love to be on Barney. I hope you can get in contact with me.

    • Natalie-

      Be sure you email and tell them about your interest in Barney.

  21. Hello, my name is Rebekah Marlin. I’m 11 years old, I may be a bit old for the roles, but I’m small-I’m smaller then my younger sister (by 2 years 2 months) tallest friend. I’ve had main roles in my school play. This year we did ‘Wizard of Pop’ and I was the ‘Wicked Witch’ and I don’t know how I got it, because I was really nervous, but now I’m confident. My friends says I’m great at singing (I write my own songs) and when I go to church, every week I’d get complimented for my singing, and I used to go to dance club when I was 6-9, and I’m great at gymnastics. I can do the splits and bridge-kickover (sometimes) and bridge turn. My teacher says I’m over average for intelligence, and I always have to show my class mates gymnastics, because my teacher tells me to. I made a dance routine to ‘Don’t Stop Moving’ for our ‘Wizard of Pop’ and it got picked. I dance all the time, and sing/write songs and act in my bedroom. I’m English, but love to act. I’ll love to sing/dance/act on Barney and Friends. My mum says I have a great sense of humour (heredity!). Please pick me, as I’d do my best every second of the day. I may be English, but I take acting classes and have a great heart, and talent (I hope I’m not boasting) thankyou for reading this, and please pick me. xxx

  46. My daughter, Madeline, is very interested in learning more about Dallas area auditions for Barney and Friends. She is going to be 10 years old within a couple of weeks and has loved acting, singing and dancing since she was a little girl. In researching the careers of two of her favorite actresses, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, Madeline was excited to discover that they are both former Barney and Friends stars.

    Madeline was at one time with Kim Dawson Agency and has participated in the summer program at Dallas Children’s Theatre. She is a beautiful, tall, redhead who would be so thrilled to be ” best friends like friends should be”!
