Stranger Things 4 Auditions: Everything You Need to Know

stranger things 4 auditions

The latest season of Stranger Things has wrapped and Stranger Things Season 4 Auditions will be held and taking place for filming soon.

We’re sad to see the third Stranger Things come to an end, but the good news is that it opens the door for aspiring actors to take part in the 4th season.

How to Audition for Stranger Things Season 4:

First, to be completely transparent, honest and set expectations accordingly.

Stranger Things has blown up to be one of the most popular television shows on Netflix.

Stranger Things is binge watched by millions of people, and the kids, teens and adults who star in the show have catapulted to stardom.

When a show becomes as as popular and successful as Stranger Things has become, the casting directors become more selective with who they choose to audition or attend casting calls.

Usually, at this point in a series you see more privately negotiated castings between directors and talent agencies and agents.

If you want a recurring role or a main character role in the series you’re probably going to need an agency, an agent and a significant amount of experience.

Are Stranger Things Auditions Secret?

Depending on the role, Yes.

Without spoiling too much – News recently broke out that a new major character on the Series did not even know what she was auditioning for. were auditioning for Stranger Things when they attended their casting call.

This actor literally had no idea what they were auditioning for.

However, she ended up having a major role in the 3rd season.

Smaller roles, non speaking rolls, background actors and other non major characters are typically not “secret auditions”.

Small roles are posted to the internet all the time, and we’ll make sure to post them to this page when they are public.

Do You Need Experience to Audition for Stranger Things?

With all of that being said open casting calls do still happen. Mostly for smaller roles or background actors/extras.

Does it mean you’re going to become a household name like the other kids on the show? No. Probably not, but it’s a cool way to get experience.

It also gives you the opportunity to be on set with some of your favorite actors from the show and earn some decent money while doing something really cool.

According to this article at Chron, Background Actors/Movie Extras typically make around $170 per day.

All things considered, it’s being an extra is a pretty awesome gig.

Tips for Stranger Things 4 Auditions:

The casting director for Stranger Things recently gave aspiring kid actors several tips and pieces of advice for pursing an acting career.

First, if you plan to audition for a series as big as Stranger Things Season 4, you’ll most likely need a talent agency and talent agent.

Carmen says that is where most of the talent are requested directly from talent agents and talent agencies.

Second, experience is important, but not 100% necessary. 

You might be surprised to know that Stranger Things was actually the first big gig for a lot of the actors on the show .

Some of the kids had experience, but many of the actors had little to no experience 

Third, you need to practice, practice, practice.

If you’re of the lucky few to attend a Stranger Things 4 Casting Call, then you need to nail it.

You can’t just walk in and blow casting directors away when you’re likely going up against other actor who have been doing this for years .

Practice and get comfortable so you’re ready for if and when your big casting call day comes.

Where will Stranger Things 4 Auditions Take Place?

Auditions will likely take place in Atlanta, GA.

Previous seasons of Stranger Things have been filmed in Atlanta, so we believe future auditions will also be held in ATL.

That’s just our best guess, though. Details have not been released.

When will Stranger Things 4 Auditions Take Place?

Most likely Spring 2020.

Historically, after the last couple of seasons there has been a 6-12 month rest period after the latest season wraps before the team starts finding shoot locations, polishing story lines and you guessed it – holding auditions and open casting calls.

You can count on casting directors to start looking for talent after 6 months, maybe 12 months.

auditions for small roles on Stranger Things Season 4 are posted with a 1-2 week notice.

So even if the show is filming the last episode, they might not request actors until a week before it’s finished.

We’ll make sure to post them to this page as they are released by the casting director.

Who is the Casting Director for Stranger Things 4?

Carmen Cuba is the casting director for Stranger Things.

Carmen has worked with A list celebrities and has worked on many successful television series and movies such as The Maritan starring Matt Damon, Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum and of course Stranger Things.

As you can see, you have some time on your hands before Stranger Things 4 Auditions actually take place, but in the mean time it’s a good idea to hone your craft and hopefully get your lucky break.

Like they say… “Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity”

Current, 2019 Stranger Things Auditions / Open Casting Calls:

Currently there are no active auditions or casting calls.

When casting calls or auditions for Stranger Things 4 are submitted, we will have them posted here.

Keep in mind, in full transparency these will likely be smaller roles and/or background work.

    I would love to apart of Stranger Things to go back to the 80s. As a 13 year old girl I’ve never experienced life before the 2000s. I don’t have no experience, so that would throw a big role out the door. I would love to be even somebody walking by in the background.

    Hello my name is Natalya Sisneros. I am 14 years old, my birthday is March 31, 2005. I would love to be apart of this show and be more than just an extra. If is there anyway I could be in the show, I would not let you down. One thing is I don’t have acting experience on television, but all of my family would give a good word for me about me acting around the house. Also I have played in a couple plays or so in school events. Acting is my passion, and it would be an honor to act in this show. Thank you for having the time to read this message and hopefully you will consider me acting in this show.

  36. Is it alright if you live somewhere far and you wanted to go audition but you can’t. can you just send a video of yourself introducing yourself and reacting a scene to try make it in?

  41. Hey, strangerthingsnoahh!

    Want to be Instagram cool?

    If you are like me, you’ve scrolled through Instagram, wondering “how do these friggin people get so rich and famous”?

    Picture this: You arise early in the morning, even before your alarm does.

    You pull out your phone.

    Hit the Instragram App.

    Youare flabbergastered at what you see: Over 832 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you can see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures–over 832 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some tea and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Bam! Another 63 likes.

    And another message just popped up. It’s from one of your many fans asking about your diet, and congratulating you on your twelve official month of going to the gym.

    As you read it, you begin to smile. It is a super hot person, and they love your posts.

    As you begin to respond, your cell buzzes again.

    Oops, another hit. But you can’t reply—you’ve got to hit the gym.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time acquiring what they want in life. People can hardly force themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    I’m going to show you how to take control of your Instagram.

    Now, what if you raised your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it is not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. For example, all the old pros use our website.

    In just minutes after posting, you have your images piled with likes.

    With this you’ve a big chance to be featured in the “Top Post” section.

    Sound too good for reality? Here’s what you’ve got to do to get a taste:
    1. Visit https://picturestorm.space
    2. Enter your Instagram username.
    3. 10 – 15 likes will be sent to your 3 most recent uploads. Just like that.

    Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you’ve got to do more than just want it–you’ve got to do something about it. Are you willing?

    Chow until next time

I know if I’m in the movie that I might not become as famous as the others but at least I tried and I’m sure I will enjoy it. Also I can see some of my favorite actors and get to have the experience of being in a movie that is one of the most popular movies on Netflix, that would be a dream come true. I love Stranger Things. I hope I will be able to be apart of it. Thank you for your time.

  54. Hey. I have acting experience, but landing a role in stranger things is most likely impossible for me because I have not been in any big productions. I don’t think commenting on this post will do anything but here goes!
