Presto Performing Arts are proud to say we are a registered Child & Young Performers Agency, affiliated with Spotlight Casting Agency. Spotlight have been providing casting services and professional stage, film, theatre and television jobs since 1927. In 2010 there were over one million performer searches on the Spotlight website. All Presto students aged 5+ are eligible to join the agency...
" Our Children and Young Performers directory features casting details for children from the UK's leading agencies and theatre schools. It is the UK's definitive database of performers aged 5-25 and the best way for any young performer to promote themselves to casting opportunities."
All current Presto Performing Arts students, over the age of 5, are eligible to join Spotlight. You will fill in an application form and you will need to provide a professional headshot of your child. Each child is able to have up to 15 professional photographs on their CV, and we would recommend a range of contrasting photographs. You also have the opportunity to upload a showreel to your child's online CV. Please speak to Rhiannon or Charlie for more information or for an application form.
Membership for a child artist is £110.00 (inc. VAT) for a whole year in Spotlight (2017-2018 edition) and admin fees. That's less than £1.74 per week for ongoing promotion to hundreds of casting opportunities!

Our commission rate is 15% for photographic and 25% for all other commercial work & usages. Presto are not sole rep, you can register with more than one agency, we just ask that you notify us of any other agency you're registered with as a courtesy measure. We will contract our artists if confirmed for a major campaign, or role. Signing with more than 2 agencies can become problematic, so bear that in mind and we ask that you let us know any dates you will be unavailable ASAP to help us remain professional with our clients.
