Spotlight Children & Young Performers
Children and Young Performers feature profiles for children from the UK's leading agencies and theatre schools. It is the UK's definitive database of performers aged 5-20 and the best way for any young performer to promote themselves to casting opportunities. Please note we do not accept children under 5.
Productions cast via Spotlight include films; The BFG, The Zookeeper’s Wife and What Happened to Monday?; and commercials for Netflix, Matalan and Coca-Cola; music videos for Chemical Brothers and Tom Rosenthal – to name but a few!
How can my child join?
Only children who are represented by an agent or who attend a stage school who have previously contacted us are eligible for Spotlight membership, which is why we are the casting community's most trusted database of young performers.
Speak to your child's agent or school to arrange Spotlight membership, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much does it cost?
An annual, 365 day membership costs £98 (inc. VAT).
When will payment be taken?
If you have not been in Spotlight before you are entitled to a 30 day cooling off period before any payment is deducted. You may cancel your application at any time during this period. The 30 day cooling off period - and your membership - starts when your CV is published on our website, and we'll take payment 30 days after your CV is published.
Please see our terms and conditions.
How do I know my child's details are safe?
Access to Spotlight's online database is only available to vetted industry professionals. We never print or disclose personal details for any of our members. Your child's agent/stage school, or you, can decide when it is appropriate to give out a viewing link to their page.
