Check out our new and improved Broadway kid alumni database! With more than 600+ kids on the website since our launch in 2010, we’ve compiled a searchable database to keep up with their projects. Users can search by name and by show. If your child is not listed but is an alum of ours, contact us with the following:

  • Two headshots (one during their time on Broadway and a current one)
  • Non-theatre projects completed since their Broadway or Off-Broadway debut. These projects include film, TV, music, and commercials!

Congrats to Taylor Richardson (Annie, Smokefall, A Christmas Memory), who will appear in the film “Easy Living”! Get more details on IMDb.com.
