GENEVA, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MSC Cruises — the Swiss-based world's largest privately-owned cruise line and market leader in Europe, South America and South Africa — is creating the ultimate family entertainment experience, offering younger guests the opportunity to star in its popular web series 'Kelly & Kloe.' Onboard auditions are now open as the show gears up for its second season.
Following the success of the first series of Kelly & Kloe and accompanying onboard experience, the new series will consist of four episodes, each with its own theme — an episode on the brand new mega ship MSC Meraviglia, seasonal episodes for Halloween and Christmas, and a special themed episode, Masquerade.
To date, the web series and trailer have been enjoyed by over 1.5 million people on the website and social media. More than 40,000 children have taken part in the on board Kelly and Kloe experience day where the fun of the series is brought to life through a range of interactive activities — just one example of the varied programs specially designed for kids of all ages on board MSC Cruises' ships.
MSC Cruises has opened auditions for all children on board between the ages of 8 and 17 for a number of roles in the new series. Auditions will be filmed via a green screen experience, where the children will perform the show's theme song and dance routine and explain on camera why they would like to be featured. Parents can also purchase this video to take home as a souvenir from their cruise.*
"Both on and off board, Kelly & Kloe proved very popular with our guests in 2016, and we are delighted to be producing a second series for its fans," commented Matteo Mancini, Children's Entertainment Manager at MSC Cruises. "At MSC Cruises we strive to offer the best entertainment in a unique and exciting way. That is why we are so excited to be able to offer our kids the chance to star in series two of Kelly & Kloe. Auditions are now open on all ships in our fleet."
All entries across the entire MSC Cruises fleet will be collected and reviewed by a judging panel including members of the MSC Cruises' entertainment division as well as the writer, series producer and director of the series. Judges include Roberto Cuccarini, Roberto di Napoli and Andrea Parodi, all well known for their TV work and musical theatre productions. Casting will run until January 2018 with characters being selected in June, September, and November 2017, and January 2018.
