Open casting for series 3 of The Dumping Ground

CBBC is looking for identical-looking twins – or children who can pass for identical-looking twins – to be cast in the next series of The Dumping Ground!

The Dumping Ground, the BAFTA-winning children’s drama series inspired by, and set in, Jacqueline Wilson’s fictional children’s home, will be returning to the channel for an action-packed third series next year, and producers are hoping to find identical-looking children to play twins in the programme.

Young people from across the UK who are interested in a career in acting and can pass for identical-looking twins are being invited to submit audition videos for a chance to star in the show, which is made by the CBBC Productions in-house drama team in Salford.

Lis Steele, executive producer of The Dumping Ground says:
“We’re not looking for professional videos or previous acting experience, just bags of enthusiasm and a spark of natural talent. We’re hoping to find some real stars of the future and can’t wait to see who comes forward to audition.”

Filming for the series will take place in Newcastle this summer between June and mid-November 2014.
The closing date for applications is 21st March 2014.

To audition for the role of a pair of identical-looking twins THIS CASTING IS NOW CLOSED

To audition you should be between the ages of 9 – 13 years old but should ideally be able to pass for a 10 year-old.

In order to be considered, applicants must obtain their parent/guardian's consent. At the start or end of your audition your parent/guardian must be filmed saying the following to the camera: “I am (parent/guardian's name) and I am the parent/guardian of (your full names). I can confirm that I have read and agree to the terms and conditions of entry on the CBBC website and I give my consent for my twins to send in their audition films.”

If you do not obtain your parent/guardian's consent your audition can not be considered.

Auditions should be sent by post on a dvd or memory stick to:

A consent form must be completed by your parent/guardian and included in the package with your auditions. The consent form can be found with the audition scenes.
