Young Performers

Actors' Equity is committed to the protection and welfare of young performers working in the theatre. Under most Equity agreements, there are special provisions for juvenile performers (under the age of 16) which provide for proper security, supervision and education while the young performer is rehearsing, performing or on tour in an Equity production.

Equity will:

  • Ensure a safe and sanitary workplace environment for your child
  • Enforce the terms and provisions of your child's contract
  • Respond to questions you have about your child's contract

Equity also publishes a National Guide for Parents of Young Performers which can be found in the Document Library.

In 2004, the New York State Child Education Performers Trust Act (CEPTA) became law. Click here for more information
