Auditioning for the show
HELLO TO everyone. I am 15 years old and a big fan of henry adams on TV. It’s a program I always watch and never miss. Well heres the thing…I’m an actress and have been in many plays. Ive been in Music Man, Alice in Wonderland (I played Alice) and Cinderella (I played the stepsister because they said I was too tall to play Cinderella). I also take karate and know how to do the fight scenes. Where do I go to audition for the show. I’m also a really good student and get good grades and am very smart. Plus I’m 5’7 very pretty and good at karate. Does anyone know what I should do. I have some pictures of me if you want to see.

Well, firstly, do you live in Los Angeles? If not, why would they invest in an actor who can’t get to set every day?

Send your pic and resume to the casting offices in Burbank, California and theyll put you on file.

What level of karate are you in? I’m a red belt... should be a first-degree black belt shortly.

Re: Auditioning for the show
Actors don’t just watch a TV show and then go to an audition and get on it. It takes years of hard work and dedication. Why don’t you research the lead actors in the show to see exactly that.

Re: Auditioning for the show
Actors in Los Angeles only get to audition through something called CLOSED AUDITIONS. When you audition for community theater or a high school play, you are participating in something called an OPEN AUDITION, meaning anyone can go, as long as they wait their turn. For closed auditions, to weed the wannabes out of the mix (for lack of a better term), they only go through agents. Actors should find representation (an agent) who access to trade papers called BREAKDOWNS. They list all the roles casting and then they can submit all of the clients that look like they would fit the part. (Part of the difficulty in finding an agent is that if there are too many clientele who look like you, they will pass…otherwise they will be submitting too many actors for the same role and cancel each other out or neglect some of them). The casting people go basically based on the look and sometimes the agency. If it’s for a really stellar program or something successful, a low end agency might have actors who are not as brilliant or talented or professional as a bigger one. So they go with the ones who they trust otherwise the audition will waste their time. So if the casting director wants to “read” (have them read the material) the actor, they will set an appointment, the actor will go in, read and then leave. So if you want to audition, you have to have a reputable agent which you get by sending out your picture and resume to all those accepting submissions. The good news is it costs nothing to be represented; if they trust you can get work, they will get about 15% of the paycheck AFTER you get the parts. They don’t get paid until then so they pick their clientele carefully…only those who will get paid landing roles on TV or film or commercials are the ones they want, otherwise they don’t get paid. There are also some agents who only submit for TV/film (theatrical) and some that only do commercials but most do both.

Re: Auditioning for the show
They take submissions. One of the kids in my class guest starred on it in the second season (one of the kids in “Playtime Is Over”) and he said he just submitted his pic to the casting office. He has an agent but the casting lady put an add in some paper saying she was looking for new talents for the upcoming season and a few weeks later he got called in ‘cause he looked the part and she had him on file. I am not his friend but they did a story on him in the school newspaper.
