Casting Agency information

Our Casting Agency is a new addition to the school. There is an increasing number of new talent searches and a broadening requirement for dramatic and musical artists we have started to build an association with various directors, production companies and other industry related open cast auditions and theatre auditions and we also hope to build further links with local Television companies. Big Red Curtain is currently communicating with major UK production companies BBC North and Granada Studios Manchester (famous for Coronation Street and other leading drama productions) to build links within the industry. As we continue building links we hope to build good connections within casting for TV, Theatre and even Film, as well as Advertising and Radio.

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

Casting doesn't stop at looking for existing productions and programmes that need actors and actresses we aim to create new scripts and commercial ideas through our own writers and students own ideas with a view to independently market show reels to production companies. The show reels we will create will include a cast made up of TheatreWorks and our Drama School, Exposition.

All of the Big Red Curtain Performing Arts students are eligible to be entered into our casting agency providing we have trained them for at least two terms (6months).  PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT accept outside requests to be featured in our casting agency as we aim to assure the quality of our students and this lets us easily identify the exact needs of any Casting Directors Quickly.

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.
