Young performers have just 5 days to apply for this year's Late Late Toy Show

Has your little (or big!) one always wanted to appear on The Late Late Toy Show? Are they natural performers, or, do you have tiny tots you just know could demonstrate those toys as cutely as the kids before them?

Well, this dream could become a reality as you have a few days left to get your applications in and be a part of the audition process. 

Young performers hoping to be part of the cast for this year’s Late Late Toy Show have just five days to get their audition tape to RTÉ.

The closing date for young performers to send in their audition takes to the Late Late Toy Show team is this Friday, September 28th.

The team has already received thousands of audition tapes from all over Ireland and will be selecting the acts who will be invited to audition for a spot on the show – and your kids could be one of them!

“We are looking for young performers who can bring that bit of magic that makes the Toy Show so special. We’re looking for the best performing groups, singers, musicians and toy demonstrators,” Late Late Toy Show producer Eimear O’Mahony told MummyPages.

Once the closing date for applications has passed, an audition tour across the country will begin, and for the first time, there'll be a stop in Limerick. 

This year’s Late Late Toy Show Audition Tour, which sees the team travel across country to meet the acts in with a chance of being part of this year’s programme, will start in Limerick on Monday, October 22nd. 

The Toy Show team will also hold auditions in Tullamore (October 23rd) and Dublin (October 24th).

To be in with a chance of making it to the auditions, performers’ parents must download an application form and send it to us, along with a DVD or USB key of their child or group in action.

The closing date for entries is Friday, September 28th so time is of the essence!

The show is also looking for youngsters to demonstrate this year’s must-have toys, though they won’t have to attend the regional auditions. For full details on how to apply see
