Pearson Casting are an award-winning, international Casting House based in London, Liverpool & New York, founded & run, by husband & wife team - James & Rosie Pearson.  They work across theatre, film, TV, commercials & live performance.

 

James and Rosie began their careers as actors.  James graduated from the very first year of LSMT and Rosie is an alumni of the University of Birmingham where she graduated with a BA in English and Drama. They are supported in the London office by Lucy Leech, who has been working as a Casting Assistant with Pearson since 2022.

James & Rosie are both members of the CDG - Casting Directors Guild, CDA - Casting Directors Association and the CSA - Casting Society of America.  In 2022 they won Best Casting In Regional Theatre at the CDG Awards for their work on RENT. 

 

Notable current UK theatre casting includes 'SIX The Musical' (West End, UK & International Tour), Olivier Award-Winning 'Operation Mincemeat' (West End) and the new revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Starlight Express' (Troubadour Wembley Park). 

They are joined in the New York office by Ian Subsara, who is a proud graduate of Elon University in North Carolina where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Theatre.  He has since worked extensively as a Casting Director across TV, live performance and theatre, both on and off-Broadway.  The New York office is soon to recast the US National Tour of 'Pretty Woman The Musical'.  They recently worked on 'Clue', which is currently out on a US National Tour.

In 2020 Pearson Casting launched the award-winning Collective Creative Initiative, a free 30 hour a week industry platform for the arts, in response to the Covid-19 crisis.  They since redesigned this platform as a free resource for teaching institutions across the world, and in 2021 became the proud recipients of a prestigious Industry Minds Award for 'Best Training Establishment'.
