Good Advice From Parents Before Lining Up For Broadway Auditions For Kids

By Brian Walker

You may believe you have the cutest, smartest, and most talented child on the planet. Parents of professional child actors have some good advice for those convinced their youngster only needs to be discovered to become the next big star of stage and screen. Before you and your little one get in line to tryout for Broadway auditions for kids, you have to start with some basics.

It is unlikely your child is going to be accidentally discovered and become an overnight sensation. Instead of broadcasting her talents on the internet, you might consider letting her try out for a local play or review. If that is successful, you can start developing a photographic and video portfolio for her. Parents can get carried away unless they adhere to a fairly rigid schedule.

Most parents are sensible enough not to try forcing an unwilling child into the spotlight. If you have a talented, outgoing youngster interested in play acting, you should find out exactly what they want out of it. Not all little ones want to be dancers and singers. If this isn't their interest, forcing them to take lessons will end badly.

For the vast majority of families, child acting is a fun hobby that everybody enjoys. Removing a child from public school and putting her into a home schooling situation may allow for more flexibility, but it may not be the right decision for your child. Routine is important to children. They like to know what to expect. Keeping conditions normal even when kids are in the midst of acting jobs is important.

Rejection is a big part of auditioning, and if your youngster is overly sensitive, or if you are, this might not be the right activity for either one of you. Learning lines, dressing up in costumes, and applying makeup are fun activities that most children enjoy. They are less likely to feel stressed and anxious over a part if you downplay the importance of winning it.

Children's interests change all the time. One day your little one may want to be a famous actor, and the next day love the idea of playing professional football. It is important not to put too much weight on the importance of getting acting roles when talking to your children. If you try to force the issue, it may backfire on you.

It is not hard to overextend yourself and your child. If acting is something your child truly wants to pursue, you will have to keep your priorities at the forefront. When an audition conflicts with an important family or community event, you may have to say no to the acting opportunity. There will always be other chances to showcase your child's talents.

Providing a stable home environment is one of the biggest gifts a parent can give any child. Little actors need routine, discipline, and consistency as much as attention. Even if they never set foot on a Broadway stage, they should know they are talented and special to you.
