Everything you need to know about Child Acting: Auditions, Agents, Casting, Auditions, Acting Classes and Coaching for all media including Television, Movies / Film, Stage / Theater. PARF is an online acting community known as the Professional Actors Resource Forum. Our members are parents of actors, and teen or young adult actors. Agents, managers, producers, directors, casting directors, and other industry professionals are welcome

If you are new to our site, sign up for a free Delphi account, read our forum posts and Join the Discussion.

PARF is a support forum, where we can share the joys, disappointments and frustrations of this roller-coaster business of acting.  For many parents of actors, this is the one place where other people understand the choices we make with and for our children.  We also provide "Mom" and "Dad" support for teens and young adult actors looking for information. New actors and their parents are always welcome to join in, ask questions and read our archives compiled from our members' experiences.

    Protect Yourself
