Gillian Arrighi and Victor Emeljanow recently edited the volume Entertaining Children: the Participation of Youth in the Entertainment Industry by Palgrave Macmillan (part of the series Palgrave Studies in Theatre and Performance). The book is the direct outcome of discussions that took place in the working group on children and the entertainment industry at the 2011 ASTR Montreal conference. The volume is broad in its geographical and historical coverage - from the Neapolitan 17th century conservatoria to contemporary practices in the Disney Corporation; from Australasia to India, Taiwan, Indonesia and mainland China. It offers fresh insights into the utilization of children as performers and theatre workers across many cultures.
