As the parent of a child performer I’m sure you’ve asked yourself more than once, “What’s MY role in my Child’s Career?” Just as I’m sure your child has asked you, a million times, “Mom, how can I become a Disney Child Star?”  Now, thanks to the Actor’s Fund Looking Ahead Program, you can have those casting questions answered by the top professionals who make these difficult casting decisions daily.

The LOOKING AHEAD Program invites ALL PARENTS of Young Performers to attend an  information-filled evening with industry giants  JUDY TAYLOR ( Senior VP, Casting and Talent Relations for Disney Channel & Disney XD) and SHARON LIEBLEIN (VP Casting and Talent Development at Cartoon Network Studios US.)

Hollywood Moms and Dads this is an AMAZING opportunity!  As the parent of a child performer, I would pay top dollar to hear Judy and Sharon speak and yet this event (plus parking and dinner!) are completely F-R-E-E. I highly encourage you to attend this exciting evening of open discussion and conversation with two expert casting executives with decades of experience  working with child actors and their families. Come to listen, learn and get your questions answered. These ladies serve with me on the Looking Ahead Advisory Committee and I promise you, they know their stuff.

* No children!  This is a Parents-only informational meeting and no child care will be provided.
