New York, NY: Kids shows are having a hay day in New York’s professional theater district. The number of child actors under the age of seventeen has been increasing steadily over the last seven years, from barely thirty children in 2007 to seventy-nine kids last year. “Broadway babies” are appearing in more and more Broadway shows. Matilda the Musical, Annie, Newsies, and The Lion King, to mention only a few, are all productions that feature children under the age of seventeen in starring or primary roles. All of this new, young talent started somewhere; the Actors Connection may just be the push that opens the stage door of your child’s future.
Theater Productions Need More Child Actors.
Because there are so many more children theater productions, more opportunities are opening up, and Broadway is becoming more kid-friendly every year. Since child labor laws restrict the number of hours a child can work every day, a lead child’s part, such as Matilda or Billy Eliot, will be played by three, possibly four actors who rotate their time on stage. That means there has been an increased demand for talented, trained, confident youngsters who have the poise and stage experience to step into these roles and shine. Actors Connection will provide the training and experience your child will need to navigate the Great White Way onto a path to your child’s future.
