WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - More than 2,000 aspiring young stars traveled from all over the county to the Wilmington Convention Center for the Disney Channel's official open casting call. 

Most of the kids were confident and determined to shine when they auditioned in front of Disney's official casting directors. 

Disney Channel's Senior Vice President of Casting and Talent Relations, Judy Taylor, says she is looking for a "trifecta." A trifecta is someone who can act, sing and dance, but her main focus is strong acting abilities. 

If rising stars did not get a callback at the open casting call, she encourages them to practice by participating in local theater to improve their skills.
