Have Questions about the Industry?

Navigating the entertainment industry can be a daunting task.  There are so many scams out there, and getting information on how to get started is a challenge.  This is why Chicago Kids in the Industry was created.  With a private Facebook Group just for parents of Child Actors, we share advice, share casting notices, and other information relevant to the industry.  If you are a parent looking to join the group, please friend me on Facebook: - shoot me a private message, and I'll add you to the group.  You'll find many resources such as child labor laws, how to obtain work permits, a list of reputable agencies here in Chicago, tips on keeping your kids safe when submitting to projects, plus much more.  For now here are a few links to get you started.

I am a firm believer that you should NEVER pay for advice, NEVER pay to be represented, and ALWAYS pay it forward.
