We get to Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center (made it more legit bc thats a top notch place) Saw hundreds of excited kids and moms, it was exciting, they had pop music BLARING and it was hectic..we all had to stand out of the ballroom and fill out forms until they were ready for our group to come in...at this point I am wondering why I am not seeing the Disney or Nickelodeon logo anywhere..hmm..red flag..ok so we get caled to go in the room and are seated by employees in an orderly fashion, btw we were crammed like sardines.I look around and the posters I see are for CELEBRITY ACTORS CAMP??? what the heck is that??? (red flag) anyway..everyone is seated and the upbeat music stops. A lady with a cheap suit on and make up that reminded me off tammy faye baker takes the microphone.
As soon as she started talking I knew we were in trouble..this was no audition this was a sales pitch. I had been duped and what made it worse was that MY CHILD would be the one to suffer..thats about as low as a scam artist can go. I wanted to walk out then but my daughter wanted to see Mr Moseby from Suite Life..and I didnt want her to remember this with me walking out upset. I sat through the whole ordeal.
I have to admit these guys are good at what they do. they get these kids hopes up that they are going to be the next major star, you could see the sparkle in the eyes of these little children who truly believed what these low life adults were PROMISING them. They said that only a very few would get called back today and if you did not answer your phone they would not call you back but rather they would replace you with another child.
I knew the call would come...they wanted money not talent. My child ha never taken acting lessons and I heard her audition, she was so nervous she spoke very quietly and pauses and said uhhhh several times..I love my kid more than anything but I highly doubt her talent got us that callback, there were kids with experience, 4in wide portfolios etc and MY child was one of the 50 best out of 800? I highly doubt it, she went for the experience and to see Mr Moseby!!! (thankfully she understood when we left and I told her it was a scam) she just said "it was fun though and I got to see Mr Moseby and he is short haha)
She is a rare exception I am SURE, I saw the kids and parents who were genuinely believing what these people said.
Disny or Nickelodeon was not there and there were NO casting agents at all. I went thinking she was going on an AUDITION not to sign her up for a 5500 dollar" camp" . When I got the call today (I knew I would) that she was chosen they wanted cash immediately..I hung up..DONT WASTE YOUR TIME! This is a sad scam that breaks the hearts and crushes the dream of children
