The Casting Call Form has closed as of 7:00 a.m. Thursday, March 14, 2019.

Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in being in our commercial! Due to the overwhelming response, we unfortunately won’t be able to reach out to everyone. We will reach out to a select few today and tomorrow. If you don’t hear from us, don’t be sad! This isn’t the last time we’ll do something like this, and we’re going to keep all applications on file so that we can reach out for future videos and similar projects. 🙂


This spring break, be a star in The ICM’s first commercial!

Does your kiddo love acting or playing it up for the camera? Would your family like to star in The Iowa Children’s Museum first-ever commercial?! We’re looking for children and adults to help us film a video advertisement promoting The ICM as a summer vacation destination. This could be you and your family. This could be you and a fellow mom who do playdates together. You and your grandchildren. We’re open to possibilities!

We just need you and your group to be available from 8:00-11:00 a.m. one morning next week (Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, March 20-22). Once we wrap filming around 11:00 a.m., you can play FREE for the rest of the day.


Do I need to audition?

Nope! We will not be holding any auditions or tryouts for this commercial. All you need to do is fill out the form below and if it sounds like a good fit, we’ll be in touch to get to know you better and discuss details. Note: The availability days/times next week are not auditions/tryouts, but actual filming days. 



Please fill out the form below by 7:00 a.m. this Thursday (March 14, 2019) so that we can select our “stars” and make arrangements by next Monday (March 18, 2019).
