About us

Red 13 management is a casting agency established in 2015 based in MediaCityUk.

Red 13 was founded with our sister company in mind, 13 performing arts school based in both Manchester and Leeds. Agents Lauren Shippey and Freddie Bolt set up the agency with the main objective of offering our 200+ students a way into the industry to regularly attend castings to gain experience working in television, theatre, commercials and films.

We had numerous success stories including our students working with productions companies such as ITV, the BBC, CBBC and SKY TV. Theatre work soon followed as our students landed roles in musicals touring the UK. Through the success of our children’s agency, we thus decided to expand our agency offering representation to adults. 

Over the past few years we have formed excellent working relationships with casting directors and producers which has enabled us to build a strong reputation within the industry. Leading to us being highly recognised as one of the top casting agencies in the north of England.

We represent a diverse client list of hand picked actors from throughout the UK. Our agency is build on honesty, professionalism and hard work!

About 13 Performing Arts School

Based in Manchester and Leeds. Jack P Shepherd (a.k.a David Platt) and his partner Lauren Shippey, decided to set up the performing arts school with their daughter in mind around 2013. Through the success of the school and the talented students that attend the weekly classes taught by Jack and other industry professionals, Red13 was founded in order to provide the students the opportunity in succeeding in casting which they have done. All of the children we represent as an agency attend our school and therefore we are unable to take submissions on representing any children who do not attend 13 performing arts school.
