Our agency is an optional extra for those students who wish to take their skill to the next level and have the opportunity to take part in professional work whether it be in theatre, film, television, modelling shoots, photo-shoots or anything else!
We offer our students an annual subscription to the agency which adds them to our books to be put forward for industry work should it be available and we feel they meet the criteria. We cannot always guarantee work for your child however we have some great links with casting agents and production companies and receive regular news and opportunities first hand. Previous castings include Oliver! UK Tour (Cameron MacKintosh), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang UK Tour and Vera.
To subscribe to the agency parents are required to fill in an application form which can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We then upload students details and headshots to our talent directory for future castings.
A £25 annual subscription fee is to be paid which keeps the students on our books from September - September. This is renewed every year and details are updated annually.
A casting brief is often very specific with regards to hair colour, eye colour, height (sometimes down to the nearest inch), skin colour and general appearance. Not all children will be suitable for every role that becomes available therefore we are only obliged to put children that meet the criteria forward to be considered. .
Often your child will be required to attend an audition which could be solo, group or workshop format. Sometimes material is given in advance to learn or familiarise with, often it's given on the day. Now and then they may be required to send a video. Our staff will support the child and you as a parent every step of the way. You may be required to travel to an audition and pay travel or accommodation at your own expense.
For many jobs or applications a child is required to obtain a performance license which we will arrange. We may need the support from a parent to provide legal documentation as part of this which can include birth certificates and passport photos.
Often children are required to obtain permission to take time off school.
If a child is subscribed to our agency they are not permitted to take part in any work or be involved in any shows outside of the academy without prior consent from the agency whether this be professional or amateur. In most cases, we will grant permission but failure to communicate with us can result in us removing your child from our books.
