Young talent who attend the open call will have their photo taken and have a chance to briefly interview with the casting team. Bringing a candid photograph (with name and contact information on back) and/or a headshot and resume (with name and contact information listed) is helpful. Young performers who are current members of SAG-AFTRA should bring their membership card for separate union admittance. Attending the open call is greatly encouraged and is the best way to be considered.

If you are unable to attend the open call, we invite you to submit electronically. Please see specific instructions below.


If you are appropriate for this project, and cannot attend the open call, please select ONE of three ways to submit:

OPTION 1: If you have an agent, your agent may submit you for this project through Breakdown Express.

OPTION 2: If you have an Actors Access account, you may submit for this project through Actors Access.

OPTION 3: If you do not have an Actors Access account or an agent (or do not wish to use one for this project), follow the instructions below to fill out our online form.

If you have already submitted for this project via Breakdown Express or Actors Access, please do not double submit!

STEP 1: Please fill in the form at the following link: A WRINKLE IN TIME Submission Form

STEP 2: Please email two (2) recent photos, one close up of face and one full body, of your child to [email protected]. Cell phone pics are not only fine, they are preferred. We only need to know what your child looks like right now, the pictures do not need to be fancy.

Use the following SUBJECT HEADING format for your photo e-mail (personalized to the child being considered):

FIRST AND LAST NAME OF CHILD, Age of Child, City, State (where you are based)
For example: JOEY SMITH, 5yo, Lynchburg, VA

If you fill out the form, email (2) recent photos of your child AND type the subject heading as instructed, your submission is considered complete!

Thank you for following our instructions. Submitting does not automatically get you an audition, but it does get you considered for one. We are only able to respond to those submissions we select for auditions, but we sincerely appreciate your interest!
