Children in Theatre

"Performing children have a very special 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. There is very little authoritative advice on how to cope and what to expect. 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. Packed full of practical advice and information on all aspects of the life of a child actor, it is written by the leading children's casting director and administrator in the UK, who has worked on many large-scale West End shows including Oliver!, Shrek, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and Matilda."

"Since becoming a Children's Casting Director 17 years ago, Jo Hawes has worked on over 75 productions - mainly musicals in the West End and on tour - for all the leading theatrical producers, including Les Miserables, Mary Poppins, Oliver!, Shrek at Drury Lane, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Sound of Music, and many others. In 2010 Jo began a series of workshops, Masterclasses in the Art of Auditioning. This is her first book"


"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 'Upbeat and informal - very accessible and readable - rather like being at one of Hawes's popular workshops - a book well worth reading by drama teachers' Teaching Drama 'A "must read" for all parents of aspiring performers. An all-encompassing, comprehensive, informative and intelligent guide. Brilliant!' Sylvia Young"
