On March 15th, 1915 Mr. Laemmle’s dream was realized with the opening of Universal Studios Hollywood. On that day, Laemmle issued a press release that predicted not only the future of Universal Pictures but of the global entertainment company that would grow out of the movie studio. "...just think what this would mean…to see the inner workings of the biggest moving picture plant in the wide, wide world. A whole city where everyone is engaged in the making of motion pictures, a fairyland where the craziest things in the world happen. A place to think about and talk about for the rest of your days! See how we have to use the brains God gave us in every conceivable way in order to make the people laugh, cry or sit on the edge of their chairs the world over!" From the very beginning, Laemmle invited the public on to the property to watch silent films being made. In 1964 the Universal Studio Tour formally opened, allowing visitors from around the world the rare opportunity to experience movie-making magic first hand. In the decades since the studio tour tram first drove visitors through the backlot, Universal Studios Hollywood has grown to become a world class destination and the “Entertainment Capital of L.A.” Performers and behind the scenes personnel at Universal Studios Hollywood play a major role in bringing that magic to life for our guests; whether it’s doing a 50’ high fall on fire in Waterworld, teaching audiences the behind the scenes secrets of movie-making at Special Effects Stage or making a child’s dream of meeting their favorite animated character come true. Entertainment truly is Universal.]]> Thu, 14 Feb 2013 13:19:20 UTC http://www.universalstudioshollywood.com/auditions/about-universal <![CDATA[Show Roles]]> THE BLUES BROTHERS Blues Brothers

    The Blues Brothers Show is a soulful journey back to the streets of Chicago. Featuring classic R&B songs performed by Jake and Elwood Blues, Curtis, and Wanda, this show has guests dancing in the streets as they enjoy the hits from the movie. Universal casts for the following roles:

    Jake Blues The lead singer of the Blues Brothers, who is on a mission to get the band back together after a recent stay in an Illinois prison. Elwood Blues Jake's "matter-of-fact" brother. He brings an off-beat and spontaneously stiff energy to the band. Wanda The jilted waitress, she is bossy, loud and wants no part of the new Blues Brothers band. Curtis Wanda's new boyfriend and a former band member of the Blues Brothers. He wants to rejoin the band, but he has to sweet talk Wanda into letting him. All performers hired for the Blues Brothers Show will be covered under the terms and conditions of a collective bargaining agreement with the American Guild of Variety Artists.
    The Special Effects Show is a cinematic adventure co-hosted by three exceptionally comedic and likeable hosts. Although the show is all about filmmaking, it is also a dynamic and educational theatrical experience. The show pits old school special effects against today’s digital techniques and effectively demystifies the process so that it is understandable to all. Host 1 - Personable and witty. Mature-minded, but not stodgy. Prefers the analog world to the digital one. In his/her opinion, the best things in life stand the test of time. Host 2 - Likeable "hipster," connected, wired, but not trendy nor hip. Socially networked organically, as a natural extension of his/her persona, not obtrusively or obnoxiously. In his/her opinion, the best things in life are cutting edge. Host 3 - Male actor (Height: 5'7"- 6'0" Weight 140 – 195) Athletic performer with strong comedic timing and physicality. Personable and genuine. Improvisational skills a plus. Type out audition will apply.

    Testimonial

    Laura Karklina – Diamond Doll Dancer 2008 – 2010 Laura has also performed in Movin’ Out (National tour ), Wonderland (pre-Broadway, Assistant Dance Captain), Dancing With the Stars, Comedy Central Roast, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Nip Tuck.
    “Universal Studios Hollywood is a such a professional company, so they understand professional performers. Sometimes we will get offers to perform on a tour or a location far away, but they make you feel welcome when you come back. In fact, they are happy with you if you receive a big opportunity -Their seasonal contracts are the best!”

    The thing I liked most about working at Universal Studios was the fact that I got to perform for thousands of people each day I worked. I got to sing and dance almost every day....not everyone gets to do that. Also, nothing prepares you to be a well-rounded performer like working in a theme park....it increases your ability and confidence to interact with people, which is a tool you’ll use inside of the audition room as well as in the rehearsal room.

Please provide a current headshot and résumé for each role you are auditioning for. Please fill out all paperwork given to you in its entirety and write clearly. If we can’t read your information, we can’t contact you. Please dress appropriately for the audition. While waiting, please keep all talking to a low volume to ensure you do not miss hearing your number being called or disrupt others who may be preparing for their audition. Please prepare exactly what is requested for each audition (e.g. monologue, singing, etc). Please! Make sure to pay close attention to all information and directions provided; both inside and outside the audition room. Please silence all cell phones and electronic devices, or if possible, do not take them into the audition room. When auditioning, please maintain a respectful distance and avoid approaching the audition panel unless requested. When finished with your audition, please remember to gather all personal belongings and efficiently exit the audition room. Make sure to wait for further instructions from the audition staff before leaving. General Audition Questions Is there an age requirement to work in the Entertainment Department at Universal Studios Hollywood? The minimum age requirement for eligibility to work in the Entertainment Department is 18 years of age. Do I need a headshot and résumé for each audition? We highly recommend applicants bring headshots (or current photo) and a current résumé for all auditions. A résumé allows Show Directors to identify what other skills you may have (in addition to those observed at the current audition) and could open the door for additional opportunities. Please ensure your headshot and résumé is updated so that we have your most current contact, skills and experience information. Do I need an agent to audition? Universal Studios Hollywood does not cast through outside agencies for its Entertainment positions. Casting is completed through auditions for all performing roles. How long do auditions normally last? The audition length will depend on a variety of factors, including how many and for which role/s you are auditioning. Auditions can range from two to six hours depending on what is required. It is a good idea to prepare for at least 3 hours, including check-in and measurements. Who is on the audition panel? Audition panels will consist of at least one Show Director and a Casting representative. Multiple Show Directors, Entertainment Management and Human Resources Team Members may also be on the panel depending on the roles we are currently auditioning. How long does it take to find out if I have been cast? Our casting notifications usually begin within 2-3 weeks of the audition, and sometimes earlier. It can take up to 4-6 weeks for Seasonal events such as Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights® and Grinchmas to be finalized. Due to the high volume of candidates, only those who have been cast in a role will be contacted. How long does my Audition information stay on file? Your Audition information (completed during the audition process) will stay on file for 90 days so that you may be considered for roles that you are qualified for that may become available after your audition. What if I am asked to return for a callback and cannot attend? If you are asked to return for a callback, you must be able to attend it to be considered. If you cannot attend the callback, you will be added to a list of candidates for possible consideration for any roles that are not cast from the audition. What does it mean to be an AGVA covered role? Many of our performance roles are covered under the terms and conditions of a collective bargaining agreement with the American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA). For auditions, if you are a current member of AGVA you will be seen prior to non-AGVA members, given that you arrive at the appropriate call time.]]> Thu, 14 Feb 2013 12:35:10 UTC http://www.universalstudioshollywood.com/auditions/audition-basics <![CDATA[Audition Calendar]]> ushauditions@nbcuni.com]]> Tue, 22 Jul 2014 10:51:24 UTC http://www.universalstudioshollywood.com/auditions/audition-calendar <![CDATA[Seasonal Roles]]> Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights® Be a part of the country’s most terrifying Halloween event!
