TDA is affiliated with the ACADEMY KIDZ AGENCY, giving our students the opportunity to receive professional representation in the Performing Arts industry. Academy Kidz has been running for over 10 years and is a BBC preferred Agency run by experienced Casting Director Felicity Cutting. Academy Kidz has exclusively opened their books to TDA students who wish to apply to join the agency. Students must take either a Speech & Drama or Acting class to be eligible as the majority of roles supplied through the agency are acting based in Film or Television.
Academy Kidz Casting agent Felicity holds audition days for TDA students twice a year. To apply for an audition slot please complete and submit this FORM (click on link). We will then be in touch to let you know the next available audition date & location (either Hinckley or Ripley). Please ensure you have read all the information on our Academy Kidz page before applying.
Parents will need to take you to any auditions but may not be allowed to take you to a job. Academy Kids has a network of professional Chaperones who escort children to jobs.
TDA parents, please let us know if you wish to apply to be able to do this role. This is a separate application process to the volunteer Chaperone process that we usually require for your shows as it is for paid chaperoning. There is training and costs involved but the pay once training is completed is good. Please contact Debbie for more details.
