Re: Juggling school and working - when does something have to give?

We had the same when Ds was in primary school-they were great at first but less enthusiastic as he was cast in more shows. He went to Sylvia Youngs for secondary school where he worked on and off the whole time he was there, which they were very happy about as long as he kept up with his school work

Re: Dd struggling - advice

Don't have any advice re books but wanted to say well done to your DD for continuing after such criticism and doing something so out of her comfort zone. What a brave girl. I can't understand why teachers think they are going to get the best out of people by completely knocking their confidence and ...

Re: Why.. Can anyone help please

Quite often for tv and theatre work, we have to sign disclosures, so maybe that's why things are quieter on here, we are actually not allowed to talk about it. There's new legislation coming in all of the time. Also, I think everyone knows that some well known casting directors are on this site too!...

Re: Self Tape Success Stories

Dd filmed for an ITV show after a self tape. She was picked straight from the tape. She has also done lots of other self tapes but not had any success. It's hard to know what they are after unless they specifically say

Shoot dates are either next week or the week after so I imagine they will need to cast asap!

Re: How to tell your agent you’re leaving?

You only need to tell them as much as you want to! They don't need to know why or where you are going. I would just thank them for their time with you and ask if you can leave straight away. We left SY to go to another much smaller agency and it was all very polite with no hard feelngs. (Although Ds...

Re: Auditioning for SEPT 2018

We were there too last night, it was such a great show. Ds is shattered as it's been intensive rehearsals but certainly the hard work has paid off

Re: Chaperoning and hours allowed on a 2 show day

Sorry it was a bit lengthy!
I print it out and keep it in a folder for the chaperones along with all of the other paperwork.
As long as they get their break it will be fine, they don't have to leave the premises for that.

hope it goes well, break a leg :)
