Children in Theatre: From the audition to working in professional theatre  

A guide for children and their parents.

Children in Theatre: From the audition to working in professional theatre $25.41 ex GST
$27.95 inc GST

Performing children have a very special, and to some extent privileged, existence which sometimes sets them apart from their peers. Parents are often excluded from this world but are expected to support them all the way. Many don’t know how and while there is no shortage of advice and lessons in how to sing, dance and act there is very little authoritative advice on how to audition which is the first, most basic hurdle through which all performers have to jump.

This book will help children and their parents navigate their way through all of this: to advise, guide, inform and demystify the wonderful world of live theatre. It is packed full of practical advice and information on all aspects of the life of a child actor.

Makes a splendid job of debunking many of the mysteries in what, for many parents and children, is a very strange, unknown world… it’s evidently written from the heart … excellent –  The Stage
