How to Write a Theatre Bio for Children

careertrend article image

In the back of any theater program you will find a list of bios explaining who the actors are in the production. This information gives you an idea of their experience and what roles they played in the past. It's a way for the production to shine a light on the actors. When writing a bio for your child, it's important to keep the information accurate and up-to-date as the child participates in new productions.

Write your child's name in the first sentence of the biography. Explain how many shows your child appeared in to date as well. If this is the first appearance for your child, use the word "debut."

List the different roles your child played in various production. Make a note of what roles were his favorite.

Add a line at the end speaking from the child. For example, "Michael wants to thank his parents for their encouragement."


Keep the bio short, no more than five to seven sentences. Use clear, concise language as well as proper grammar.
