Macalla Teo is looking for children between the ages of 5 and 8 to be part of an exciting new show for RTÉjr that celebrates different kinds of intelligence in children.

Bright Sparks is a series of interstitials in the RTÉjr schedule, hosted by nine friendly & unique characters, each of whom uses their unique skillset to solve problems, create magic, help others, have fun and save the day.

We are particularly interested in meeting children who have a passion for music and percussion and can play a musical instrument. Children who have strong singing voices or who can rap would also be included here. We are looking for kids who are talkative and not at all camera shy.

We are also looking for children who are chatty, full of confidence, and knowledgeable about the world around them and able to express themselves.

On the programme we would like to include children from all sorts of backgrounds and all areas of the country.

It’s quite short notice as we are shooting on Friday 6th April in the North Co. Dublin area.

If you know of any child that may be interested, please contact us on and send us a two minute video of the child telling us about his/her passion as soon as possible!
