Not all children wish to be professional performers but many do, and we feel it is important to guide and support them, and their parents, and to ensure they find the best representation.
We are very fortunate to have developed a close working relationship with leading children’s Agent, Julie Fox Associates, who audition children recommended by Act Now! Academy of Drama & Performing Arts, and visit us to see our shows and run audition workshops up to 3 times a year.
Children wishing to be put forward to the Agent or audition are first assessed by our Principal, who has an extensive knowledge of what casting directors and agents are looking for.
No student is put forward without prior training in our Act Now! classes and, most importantly, full discussion and consultation with parents.
After audition, the agent will then decide whether or not they will offer representation.
There is obviously no guarantee, but we have a very high success rate.
From our latest Agency audition workshops in July & August 2012, 76% of the Act Now! students auditioning were offered representation by Julie Fox Associates, and now appear in Spotlight Acting Directory.
Unsuccessful students are given positive, constructive and encouraging feedback, and are often re-auditioned at a later date when it is felt that they are more ready to work in the industry.
For our students (and their parents) who do work in the industry we offer continuing support, advice and guidance and audition preparation.
Our Principal is also a licensed
Matron/Chaperone and can be available to chaperone students, if required, when parents are unable to do so.
