WKAR Holds Casting Call for Kids Science Show- August 4th

Casting Call for ages 9-13 Thursday at WKAR Studios in East Lansing!





EAST LANSING, MI- AUG 4TH 2022 – Do you know a child who loves science? Maybe that child could be a cast member on Curious Crew, the children's television show about science produced by WKAR at Michigan State University and seen on PBS stations across the country. The mid-Michigan PBS affiliate is holding an open casting call for children ages 9 to 13 for season nine of Curious Crew, scheduled for production in the fall of 2022. In this award-winning original series from WKAR, host Dr. Rob Stephenson and the "Curious Crew" of kids take a hands-on approach to exploring science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The auditions will be held Thursday, August 4, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at WKAR studios on the Michigan State campus. A parent or guardian must accompany any child auditioning. Visit wkar.org and find "Casting Call for Curious Crew" (wkar.org/casting-call-curious-crew) for full details and a schedule. Carol Yancho, WKAR senior producer, says she is looking to add 30 new cast members to join Curious Crew veterans in the upcoming season. "We’re excited to have a casting call once again after filming virtually the past two seasons," said Yancho. "It has become somewhat of a community event for WKAR, and it’s great to see parents and children from all over Michigan come to audition. Kids will be back in studio with Dr. Rob this fall, and we’ve got plenty of fun investigations planned for the Crew." Past casting calls for Curious Crew have drawn more than 200 young scientists to audition at the WKAR studios. Curious Crew is made possible in part with support from MSU Federal Credit Union and Consumers Energy Foundation.
