We give every single application very careful consideration, but we with so many kids applying to join the Bubblegum family, this can take a little time. However, we will certainly be in touch if we need to arrange an interview with you and your child.
Make sure that our emails aren’t marked as spam and that your ‘Thank You For Applying’ email has gone straight to your inbox.
You might also want to make sure that all emails that come from @bubblegumcasting.com.au go are on your VIP list. We don’t want your child to miss out on any opportunities because an email from us was sitting in a spam folder!
We wish we could represent everyone that applies to join us but with 22,000 applicants this year, that’s simply not possible.
In fact, of those 22,000 applicants only 11,000 will come in for an interview and only 10% of those will join the agency.
With that in mind, it really is a good idea to help your child prepare for the interview to give them the best chance of success.
You can do that by following the instructions below. Luckily for babies, this prep work just involves being themselves, but there’s a little more to it for older kids and teens.
No preparation needed — yay!
Learn the line, “I’m a Bubblegum kid” and know how to recite it in different emotions.

Just remember to keep it around 30 – 60 seconds.
If your child has no acting experience, there’s no need to worry. We’ll take that into account during the interview.

If your teen is stuck for ideas and looking for some inspiration, then check out this curated list of monologues suitable for teenagers.
The monologue should be between 30 – 60 seconds long and suitable for teens.
