Acting Scenes & Monologues for Kids! Help please

Hello lovely people, does anyone have this book please? I have it somewhere and cannot find it and have turned house upside down. I need one monologue from it and don't want to buy book again as it will of course turn up the minute I have ordered it! The monologue I need is called Science Camp. Can ...

Re: School Absence

Firstly no you cannot just ignore the school and take the day off because you need them to sign a letter saying they agree to it in order to get the licence (and if you did not get a licence you would struggle to get one for anything else and the production could get into lots of trouble). Speak to ...

Re: School Absence

I always say I will take the work with me and arrange with the class teacher to pick it up the night before, I would try the approach of saying you are happy to do this, if they say no, ask what you can do to make this happen and stress how important this is for your DC's future as this is what he/s...

Re: Submissions

Bethjaneg am exactly like you, I have 100% faith in my agent and never ask to see submissions as I prefer to just get a nice surprise :) Every so often I will ask about something too if I have heard about it and every single time without fail, the submission has already been done! And as you say Imi...

Re: Submissions

Hi Imistar, 8 submissions in 3 weeks is good and yes I am really sorry to say that you cannot judge on 4-5 weeks and the fact that they are being cooperative and showing you the submissions means you have a decent agent. Speak to them and ask about the photos, but also don't forget casting agents ha...

Re: Submissions

Firstly, many agents don't send lists through, so that is a good start :) But also it is impossible to give a number, it just depends on what productions are going on. Sometimes it seems every casting requires a 10 year old boy and you can't keep up with the self-tapes and other times months go by w...

Oh we cast for Finn.... never mind, guess that is out of the window then. We have a birthmark on the arm, but not face.

Re: Endlings

Thanks folks, I know they were casting net very far and wide so they are probably still looking at tapes!! Or they have just reverted to the US :?
If anyone does hear anything, even a vicious rumour it would be great if you could let us know (so we can put it to bed:) )

Did anyone hear back on this quite open self-tape, has anyone heard if people have been called for auditions, there were several roles for DS and DD ages 8-14 I think.

Re: Newbie: audition for Ghostwriters

Tashadavis, If your agent has asked you to do the self-tape, they might well get very ticked off if you don't bother sending one in and then they might drop you or not bother putting your DS up for anything else. In my experience, if you sign up to an agency, then you are agreeing to do the audition...

Re: Independent Castings Query

Personally I think you should always let your agent know what you are doing, also if it is the right agent they will be happy to see your DC getting as much experience as possible and very importantly can protect you from non-payment or unacceptable terms. I would always hand over or at least get ad...

Re: Jobs outside of London

If you search for Spotlight in this forum you will find lots of information about it, I only say this because it has been discussed quite a bit recently. Spotlight is the industry standard and is what the Casting Directors and Agents use, Mandy and Starnow are very watered down versions of it. You p...

Re: Spotlight question

How bizarre, that agent sounds as if they did not know what they were talking about :? Glad you now have a good one
