South Side Agency  represents child actors and young performers. The agency is open to both Weekly Academy and Private students. We are a registered Child & Young Performers Agency, affiliated with Spotlight Casting Agency

Agency students are given exclusive access to Spotlight auditions for both stage and screen, including West End castings, commercials and movies! All current South Side students, over the age of 5 are eligible to join South Side's Agency through spotlight. Spaces are offered on an invite only basis. Once invited to join the agency, you will be given an application form to complete.


Students will need to provide a professional headshot for their Spotlight page. Group headshot sessions will run throughout the year for all agency students. Students can upload up to 15 professional photographs to their spotlight profile. We would recommend contrasting photographs. You will also have the opportunity to upload a showreel. Our team of agents will be able to advise and guide you through this.

Alongside being a part of the agency, students will have access to exclusive workshops throughout the year, including screen workshops, audition technique and how to film a showreel.

How Does the Agency Work?

  • Weekly Academy and Private Tuition students are invited to be a part of the agency by a member of the South Side team, with full details shared with parents/carers.

  • Once registered with the agency you will be required to set up your spotlight profile. We will guide you through this process.

  • When set-up our team of agents (Toby & Dannika) will submit you for appropriate castings based on casting breakdowns detailing exact requirements of ability and talents, physical type (particularly if they are casting a family), sometimes height restrictions, and a clear character synopsis for the role they are casting and they will hope to match as near as possible with someone who naturally resembles that character.

  • Students may then be invited to self-tape or an audition. This can be at very short notice. Students can book in 1-2-1 tuition sessions to help with these if needed.

  • Students may be invited to send further self-tapes or to more audition rounds. These can be multiple!

  • Students may then be offered a role.
