Ensure Your Minor is Active

1.
Renew your minor’s child performer permit

Minor’s child performer permits are valid for 12 months. You can apply for a child performer permit on the NY Department of Labor website.

If you need to receive your permit by a certain date, the DOL says to allow 15 days for processing.

Per New York law, minors must also have a Child Performer Trust account. You can learn more about trust accounts on the DOL’s Child Performer Trust Accounts page.

2.
Send new child performer permit to Central Casting

Email your child’s new permit to: regccny@centralcasting.com

We will update your minor’s profile within 2 business days.

3.
Complete anti-harassment training with Central Casting

For more about anti-harassment training, please visit our Required Training page.

4.
Claim and update your minor’s online profile

First claim your child’s profile, then log in to update their information. Be sure to update their look and sizes as they change and upload current photos.


Profile Management

When you register your minor with Central Casting, you create an online profile where you can manage their availability, update their photos and contact information, and respond to job inquiries in our online self-service platform. Our Casting Directors use your child’s online profile to consider them for roles.

If you previously registered your minor with Central Casting before the launch of our online self-service platform, a profile has already been created for them. To access your child’s information, please claim their profile using the email address they have on file with Central Casting.

Required Training

Parents or legal guardians of minors age 13 and younger should take the training in place of the minor. By taking the training in place of a minor age 13 or younger, the parent or legal guardian is certifying that they have completed the training and will explain the material to the minor. Minors age 14 and above need to take the training themselves to remain active and eligible to be booked.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being Booked

Casting Directors use multiple tools to book Background Actors, including seeking submissions on our Jobs page and sending availability messages through our messaging platform.

Your child is booked to work when you accept an offer for work and receive their details.

FAQs

  • What do I do if my minor is going to be late or need to cancel their booking?

    Call 646.205.8244 ext. 4. If you cancel, we ask that you give us enough notice to replace your child. Note: You cannot cancel via text message. You must call our office.


  • Is there a guarantee of work?

    No, there is no guarantee of work because the needs of productions change every day. Due to the nature of background work, Central Casting can never offer full-time employment to any of the talent (i.e., kid actors) it employs.


  • What does “checking your availability” mean?

    “Checking your availability” means that a Casting Director is preparing the look for a show for a future date and is checking if your minor is available to work that day. When Central Casting checks their availability, we are not offering or guaranteeing work, we are only asking if they can work without time restrictions on a specific date or date range. “Without time restrictions” means that there are no possible conflicts that would prevent your child from working that day. When preparing for and booking their shows, Casting Directors may not know call times until they get additional information from production and those call times often change through the night and early morning. That’s why you and your minor need to have all day availability when responding as avail to these messages.


  • What does “first avail” mean?

    “First avail” means that you have confirmed your child’s availability, but the Casting Director cannot book them right away. Your minor is not booked unless you accept an offer for work and receive their details. So when they are on first avail, they are not officially booked and are still able to look for other work. If your minor is offered another job or put on first avail for another job, please call the initial Casting Director they are on first avail for before accepting the offer; the first avail show may choose to hire them first. Also, if your minor’s availability changes while on first avail, please call our office as soon as possible to let us know they are no longer available to work.


  • How do I get my minor’s details?

    The Casting Director will give you your child’s booking information, often in the form of a Details Blog. You will use the show name and 4-digit passcode given to you to access their booking information.


  • What happens if I miss a call from Central Casting?

    Please check your voicemail before calling Central Casting. If the Casting Director did not leave a message, wait to see if you hear back. If you do not receive a call back, assume your minor is no longer needed.


  • Where can I find the dates my minor has been booked for?

    In the “My Schedule” page of your minor’s online profile, you can easily track messages and responses from our Casting Directors to avoid confusion or potential double bookings.


  • What is a rush call?

    Rush calls are for immediate same-day work. When you respond to a rush call, you and your minor may be required to get to set as soon as possible.


  • Where can I view the New York Anti-Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Policy?

    You can view the New York Anti-Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Policy here and the Sexual Harassment Complaint Form here.


  • Why has my minor not been contacted for work in a while?

    Our Casting Directors book Background Actors based on the needs of production. Be sure to fill out your child’s profile thoroughly and accurately so Casting Directors know the types of roles they can portray. You can also check our Jobs page for work opportunities.


  • What can I do to help my minor get booked?

    Through our online self-service platform, you can now edit your minor’s online profile and receive job inquiries from Casting Directors. Here are some tips to ensure you’re putting your child in the best position to be booked.

    1. To get booked by Central Casting, you must first claim your minor’s online profile. To claim, select the log in button in our website menu, then choose the claim profile option. Once claimed, you will be able to log in and get jobs through our online self-service platform.
    2. Casting Directors use the information in your child’s profile, like hair color, eye color, sizes, etc., when booking their shows. By filling out their profile completely and accurately, your minor will show up in more searches for roles they fit.
    3. Upload photos of your child in different looks and wardrobe. Casting Directors use these photos to make sure your minor’s look fits the role.
    4. Manage your child’s availability calendar. Keeping their availability up to date lets Casting Directors know when to contact you for work and helps ensure they don’t become double booked.
    5. Reply to emails and texts promptly. You will receive availability messages, job inquiries, and other communications from Central Casting via email. Be sure to enable alerts so you never miss a job opportunity. Also, add DoNot-Reply@centralcasting.com to your safe sender list, so emails don’t get lost in junk or other folders. Casting Directors may also reach out via text message and you can also view all communications in the messages folder of your minor’s online profile.

Messaging

When a Casting Director contacts you about work for your minor, you will often receive an alert in their profile and an email through our online self-service platform. We recommend setting up email alerts so you never miss a message from Central Casting. To learn how to set up email alerts on your device, read these instructions.

To learn more about check avail, first avail, and other booking terminology, see our article First Avail: Everything You Need to Know.

  • How do I submit my minor for work?

    Casting Directors will contact you directly when your child fits the look or requirements for a role. Be sure to completely fill out their online profile and add additional photos in different looks so Casting Directors can consider them for a variety of roles.


  • How do I know the message came from Central Casting?

    Emails will always come from DoNot-Reply@centralcasting.com and include a link to reply to the message via your online profile. SMS text messages will always come from the same 5-digit number and will always include a link to reply via our casting platform. These inquiries will also appear in your online profile.

    Emails from Central Casting will include your name, a message from the casting director, and a link to our online self-service platform.

  • What happens after I respond to a message?

    Our Casting Directors will review their responses then reach out if they intend to book your child. If they are not selected, you may not hear from anyone. Remember, your minor is booked when you accept an offer for work and receive details.


  • What does the phrase “without time restrictions” mean?

    When booking, Casting Directors may not know the call time (which can often change before the shoot), so they need you to have completely open availability on the date in question. For example, if your child cannot work between 3-4pm, they are not available without time restrictions.


  • I didn’t see the message until later. Can I still respond?

    Yes, always respond as soon as you can. Some messages will expire after a certain amount of time. When this happens, you will see a notification that submissions are closed. We recommend enabling alerts for Central Casting through your email provider so you can always respond to job inquiries on time.


  • Can I respond to multiple avail messages?

    Yes, you are responsible for letting Central Casting know when your minor is available to work. Once booked, you are also responsible for them not becoming double booked. If your child is on first avail, please let that Casting Director know before accepting another offer.


  • How do I know you received my response?

    After you respond to a message, you will be sent a notification detailing your response and confirmation we received it.


  • Why am I unable to reply to an availability message?

    Casting Directors may only accept responses for a certain period of time and your message may have expired. If the message has expired and we’re no longer accepting submissions for the role for which you were contacted, you will see a page that explains this when you try to respond.


  • Where can I find my responses to messages I’ve received?

    In the “My Schedule” page of your online profile, you can easily track messages and responses from our Casting Directors to avoid confusion or potential double bookings.

    Screenshot of the My Schedule section of the Casting Platform.(click image for more information)


  • What if I don’t hear back from a Casting Director?

    If you don’t hear back with an offer for work and details, your minor is not booked. However, given the volume of roles they are booking, please be patient as it may take them some time to respond.


  • What are my child’s booking details?

    Once you have accepted an offer for work, the Casting Director will let you know how to access your minor’s details, which will likely be in the form of a Details Blog. To access their details, enter the show name and passcode given to you in the My Details section of our website. Casting Directors get booking information as it comes in from production, so you likely will not receive details until the evening before the shoot.


  • Do I still have to call the Call Time Change Box for my call time changes?

    Yes, your minor’s call time changes will be updated on the Call Time Change Box. You can find the Call Time Change Box information in their Details Blog.


  • If I receive a message, does that mean my child is officially booked?

    You are not booked unless you accept an offer for work and receive details.


  • What if I respond to a message then never hear back from the Casting Director?

    Thank you for replying. Your response lets the Casting Director know your child is interested and available to work, but does not guarantee they will be booked. Depending on the casting volume, you may not hear back.


  • Can I reply directly to a text message?

    No, our texting numbers are only formatted to send outbound text messages from our online self-service platform. When you respond to a text message directly, you will get a message indicating that you can only reply “Stop” to end text communication. We do not accept “yes,” “no,” or any other response through text message.


  • Can I call the number I received the text message from?

    No, our texting numbers are only formatted to send outbound text messages from our online self-service platform. Please call our main line at 646.205.8244.


  • Why was there a link in my message?

    While you may receive an email or text message, all communication with Casting Directors happens through our online self-service platform. Each communication will include a link to your minor’s online profile where you can reply to the message.


  • Can I get messages in a language other than English?

    No, the messages are only in English.


  • I’m not getting text messages. Does T-Mobile’s business message “opt-out” feature prevent me from receiving text messages from Central Casting?

    Yes. T-Mobile has released a feature that allows their customers to “opt-out” of business messages. In order to receive text messages from Central Casting, T-Mobile users will need to contact T-Mobile support at 1.800.866.2453 and ask for this feature to be turned off. Once the opt-out is removed, you will be able to receive messages from Central Casting. Even if you are a T-Mobile customer who has received text messages from Central Casting in the past, please check with T-Mobile to ensure you do not have the opt-out feature enabled.


  • Can I change my response?

    If your minor’s availability has changed after responding to a message, please call our office at 646.205.8244.


  • I’m not registered with Central Casting. Why am I getting these messages?

    We apologize for the inconvenience. Most likely your phone number was previously owned by someone signed up with us or provided to us in error.


  • Can I opt out of SMS messaging?

    As an employee of Central Casting you provided your mobile number to us so that we can contact you about jobs for which your child would be a potential match. However, if you no longer want us to reach out to you via text message, please reply “STOP” to the text message you received.


  • How do I set up email alerts on an iPhone?

    Adding Central Casting as a VIP sender ensures you don’t miss out on job inquiries and other communications. If you have an iPhone, follow these steps. If you have another device, please check your email app settings.

    1. Open an email from Central Casting
    2. Tap on Central Casting in the “from” field at the top of the page
    3. Select “add to VIP” below Central Casting’s contact information
