School of Performing Arts Agencies

Although we do not class ourselves as an agency, our teaching staff is composed of professionals and freelancers within the industry and consequently share many contacts.

Therefore, if appropriate opportunities for auditions arise with professional and amateur companies, notices will be issued. 

What is an agency & why are they useful?

  • Agencies are casting directors and producer/directors first port of call on most new projects they are needing to cast.
  • An agency has a lot of contacts that would normally be unattainable due to client’s confidentiality within the industry.
  • Agencies can also help when it comes to negotiating fee’s and dates of jobs as well as arguing any difficulties and problems if they arise. If a client was to refuse payment etc, an agency will represent you legally.
  • An agency is there to make the industry a lot more accessible for the model, within an industry that works off commission, so if they don’t receive any work, they don’t make money.
