Agents and Directors Information

Big Red Curtain know that Casting Directors are very busy people and have ever increasing numbers of potential new actors and actresses. So let's keep it quick and simple:-

  • Our Casting Agency only has children trained within our schools by specialist music, dance and drama teachers this ensures all potential clients are motivated, dedicated and trained to the exacting level you're looking for.

  • We are an independent school and casting agency we know each and every student and their capabilities exactly, so we won't waste your time when you tell us what you're looking for.

  • We are specialist teachers that believe in teaching to high quality performing arts skills that are backed up by internationally recognised qualifications from LAMDA, Trinity Guildhall and ABRSM.

  • We can offer live casting sessions at various locations in Yorkshire and also use registered chaperones to take children to auditions further afield.

  • We believe in making things simple, whilst we do not believe in openly displaying students in our casting directory for child protection reasons we can meet your requirements  just as quickly  by phone or email. We can either assign you with a password so you can view and search online with various filters including Height, Hair Colour, Eye Colour, Playable Age, and Nationality. Or let us search for you and we will send you a portfolio of appropriate candidates via post or email.

We do not believe in charging an entrance fee to enter the casting agency, we only take a small commission on any work they do receive.

Perhaps you're looking for more than just an actor? Big Red Curtain specialises in Music Theatre we have children on our books that have been professionally vocal trained specifically for singing music theatre. We also have a range of musicians that can play multiple instruments, sing and act!


Below is a video clip of Channel 4's The Family first aired in Winter 2008 Sally and Ruth (Sisters) from Big Red Curtain were approached through our casting agency to take part in a frank discussion which was then shown at the end of the series. They were invited with their friends to London to be filmed for the program.
