Casting & Career Opportunities

The Story Ship is expanding its crew to serve kids all around the World. Each year, we turn away a plethora of booking opportunities because we don't have enough performers to fill the demand. So, we are actively searching for actors to perform for us. If you are interested in a super fun and exciting career performing for kids, this is an incredible opportunity.

Jump Start Your Career

It takes years to develop a career performing for kids in schools, libraries, museums, and theaters. Trust us! We have done it. Creating children's shows is expensive and hard to do. In addition, getting clearance to perform in schools is not easy. It takes years to get approval. Then you still have to develop and implement a marketing and advertising plan.

So, skip all these headaches by becoming a Story Ship actor. You can avoid the red tape, financial risks, and headaches that new children's performers face when starting their careers.

  • Learn from highly experienced performers.

  • Get on approved artist rosters immediately.

  • Have constant access to support from veteran actors to help you easily handle problems.

  • Have instant access to our client databases.

  • Skip the paperwork and headache of booking your shows and managing a company.

  • Avoid the high cost of buying sets, props, costumes, and audio-visual equipment.

Create Your Own Shows

It's not just about doing our shows. We want to help you develop your own performances and share them with the world. We also want to give you the opportunity to not only get paid for the shows you perform but also get royalties when others perform shows you help create! The Story Ship gives you a built-in roster of actors who can perform the shows you create and pay you royalties.


We can provide you assistance with all aspects of show development including writing scripts, creating interactive video and animation, composing music, constructing props and more. You will be guided by a staff with decades of experience to shorten your learning curve and help you realize your vision efficiently. This will save you years of development time and thousands of dollars in cost.
