Re: Auditioning again?

Most of them will call you back if they still think your child has potential for the show, as in still under height limit and with the right skills. Some ask you not to apply again if you've had a 'no', they'll contact you if they want to see your child, but I don't think onyone really takes any not...

Re: height restrictions at castings

So long as they are definitely under 4'7 on the day of the audition they will be seen. I've heard of plenty who have been sent away without even being seen by the CD I assume you are talking about for being over height!!

Re: id Talent

I've just had a look at their Website as had not heard of them before. They seem to be very much linked to a local theatre school and a dance school so represent their students. My reservation would be having looked at some of their children's spotlight profiles that I cannot actually find many prof...

Re: Screen acting course for 10 year old

Dominique Moore does private lessons based around screen acting. Can highly recommend. The studio is in Hackney Wick. She also does online lessons.

What’s tagmin?
Not all agents use tagmin. It is like an online calendar where you book out your availability and your agent puts all you submissions onto it.

Re: What do you look for in an agent?

Is anyone with daisy and dukes? I’m considering contacting them as dds agent got her one audition last year which surely isn’t right? Just want her to get the chance to audition D and D is a well respected agency. Has quite a large number on their books I believe but difficult to know exact numbers...

Re: Best etiquette for changing agents

Thanks for helpful reply, could I ask another question? I have contacted a few new agents, in the paperwork they want DS spotlight pin. Once they are on spotlught they can see his present agent, is that ok? If they have his name they can look him up on spotlight anyway and so will see his current a...

Re: Mad Fish, Brown and Mills or Broad International??

My gut reaction was Brown and Mills... However its probably not that simple. Have you had a discussion with each about what type of work they see your DD being submitted for? Have you had the opportunity to tell them what she is interested in? Do you know how many girls of a similar age and look eac...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

I totally agree with the BYMT needing to keep all children busy and motivated if you are paying out that kind of money. There are plenty of things they could be working on I'm sure. As for the Spirit/Stagebox question I think you have to remember that first and foremost they are businesses. Whilst w...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

You'll find plenty of fans of both. They offer something very similar. However Spirit is a weekly class in London whereas the London Stagebox teams only meet in school holidays for week long workshops. So it depends which model works better for you? Stagebox have also had their auditions for next ye...

Re: Mandy, backstage....etc.

Most agencies would be fine with it, but just let them know what you are applying for so the dates don't clash with submissions they are making. Worth checking with your agent first though as sometimes they may also be submitting for the same job - not all agencies would, but some of them definitely...

Re: Child living in a cast house whilst in a West End show

My DD lived in a cast house for SoR last year. She generally enjoyed the experience!! The house parents were all lovely, very caring and approachable and on the whole the other children were fine - but that is obviously always going to depend on who else is there! We did not pay for anything at all ...

Re: Advice needed about agency applications from a complete novice!

I agree regarding MT auditions. All MT auditions for West End or national tours are open castings that do not require an agent - however at 12, your DD is absolute top end age wise for these auditions regardless of her height and development. Some shows will keep auditioning until 13 and the odd sho...

Re: Mary Poppins

I suspect it will be sing an age appropriate song from musical theatre acapella, and perhaps a monologue for first round. Some dance will be required but maybe not until later rounds. I am only making assumptions based on plenty of other MT auditions though! Sometimes they run more of a workshop sty...
