Interested in how to get your child into acting? Register with Central Casting to get them on set as Background Actors and doubles.
While your minor does not need a work permit to sign up with us, they will need an entertainment work permit to be considered for jobs.

Bring your minor’s required documentation to your reserved Talent Onboarding session at our Burbank office. We cannot onboard your child without these documents and you will be turned away if you do not bring them to your reserved session.
At Talent Onboarding you will complete paperwork, an orientation, and your minor will take a photo for our casting platform.
In accordance with federal law, all registrants/employees must bring the required documentation to complete a Form I-9. Central Casting cannot onboard/employ anyone who does not have their original I-9 documentation with them, even those who arrived on time. Ensure the name on the I-9 documentation matches the name the appointment was made under.
The federal government requires that for the Form I-9, minors are required to either present one original unexpired List A document, or an original unexpired List B and List C document combination. If presenting a List B document to an employer that participates in E-Verify (Central Casting), the employer can only see/use a List B document that includes a non-detachable photo of the minor. Per Federal Law, Central Casting is not permitted to onboard anyone, minor or adult, who does not have the required documentation.
Per federal law, the non-photo ID options in List B do not apply to minors pursuing employment with companies that are E-Verify participants (Central Casting). This statement has been issued by the federal government regarding minors and Form I-9:
Per federal law, because Central Casting is an E-Verify participant, parents or legal guardians cannot establish identity for a minor in any other way than by presenting either a List A document, or a combination of a List B document that contains a photograph and a List C document.
Minors do not need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend Central Casting talent onboarding. Minors can go to any of the sessions regardless of vaccination status.
