Children in Theatre: from the Audition to Working in Professional Theatre A Guide for Children and Their Parents by Jo HawesPerforming 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.
'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'
'A must read for all parents of aspiring performers. An all-encompassing, comprehensive, informative and intelligent guide. Brilliant!'
