Re: height restrictions at castings

Thanks, but what if they are exactly 4’7 at the audition, not under? Would that be a definite no no for getting the part?

height restrictions at castings

If a casting states that maximum height is, say for example, 4'7, does that mean 4'7 for the audition, or under 4'7 for duration of the show? if your child is 4'7 on date of audition, is it still worthwhile sending them in to audition or is it a waste if time?

When you are too tall for theatre... where do you go? Screen??

My 9 year old son is 4'11. Still young, but too tall for west end. I have been unable to find youth theatre near us, all of the ones I have found, you need to enroll in their drama courses and most are too basic for him. He trains with Spirit. Where can he continue his singing/acting career? He real...

Best etiquette for changing agents

We are looking to change agents for various reasons. How do you actually do this? Would you tell your present agent that you are leaving once you find a new agent. Do you leave your agent and go unrepresented until you find a new one? Do you contact various agents while with your old agent and hope ...
