Acting for Kids
Be a Child Actor
The first rule when having your child audition for roles
and dive into the world of acting is to be honest with your
child. Tell them that no part is guaranteed, and they may
go on hundreds of auditions before they get their first
part. If they know exactly what to expect, they will decide
very easily whether performing is for them. After all, it
is and should always be their decision.
Arrive fifteen minutes early and come prepared and rehearsed.
Though your child is playing a part, let them be themselves.
Casting directors like kids who act like kids. It is your
child's choice to have you accompany them into the audition.
You as a parent will not be able to sit in the audition.
No added pressure from parents has ever increased a child's
chance of getting a role. Be respectful and tell you child
they did great afterwards.
