See instructions on obtaining a work permit below – do not submit if your child does not have a current, valid, Illinois work permit. Production would like to have options by March 9th.
You want your child to be a STAR! First question we are going to ask – Does she/he have a work permit?
If you have a child (15 or younger) and would like him/her to be considered for extra work, your child MUST HAVE a valid, Illinois Dept. of Labor Employment Certificate, also known as a “work permit.” Your child CAN NOT work in the state of Illinois without the work permit.
All minors (see above), who want to work on an Illinois production, residents and non-residents, must obtain a valid Illinois Dept. of Labor Employment Certificate to work in Illinois.
There is no charge to obtain a work permit.
Go to—illinois.… to obtain the necessary paperwork, including our letter of intent.

Check with your child’s school or the local high school in your area to see if they issue work permits. If they don’t, check your local high school. If still no luck, you can try the following Chicago facilities:
