Wonderchums is on the hunt for a child to play the voice of Dash for their early-stage children’s app – and they are keen to employ someone with lived experience of disability.
And best part is, you don’t need to have any specific acting experience to apply.
Dash is described as “cute, enthusiastic and curious”.
Their “dream voice actor” would be a child or youth with a gender-neutral or slightly female child-like voice, who has lived experience of disability.
“Unfortunately, we are not getting many young people with lived experience of disability applying, which is one of our hopes – to cast authentically and to give more opportunities to kids and youth with disability,” producers say.
Eight out of the nine of Wonderchums’ current actors have a disability.
The role would require between two and five hours a fortnight of workshops and recording and would be done remotely online.
A parent must supervise all sessions.
The role is paid.
“We have an awesome supportive culture and everyone has a lot of fun,” the producers say.
The Wonderchums characters are diverse and each has their own unique strength or superpower. They are full of quirks and differences, but as kids discover, everyone is different and being different is WONDERFUL.
