CBBC are looking for a bright new star!

Can YOU act?

Is BSL your 1st or 2nd language?

Dream of being on TV?

CBBC are looking for a bright new star (aged 7 - 11)

from the deaf community to play the youngest sibling

in a brand new series being filmed this spring.

We're looking for a young talented actor/actress to play the

youngest child in a musical step-family. This main role is a

cheeky, clever and lovable character. The youngest in a family comprised of a white British dad & an African American mum, this

character has 4 older siblings to contend with, so needs to be sparky and energetic!  

BSL essential.

If you'd like to audition, please get in touch as soon as possible

- Make sure you have the permission of your parent/guardian before getting in touch.

You Could Have It So Much Better

If you're a fan of Franz Ferdinand, don't bother buying tickets for their next gig; just go to the local home for the deaf in Glasgow!

Franz Ferdinand too loud even for the deaf.

A friend of the band had the theory that it might be the vibrations that disturbed them.  Clearly they've been watching the rather excellent Deaf Brain programme by Sarah Tavner, now available on iPlayer!
