Welcome to the Theatre Dictionary’s conversation about the term Child Wrangler.

On Child Wrangler’s official page, our friends at The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts defined a child wrangler as “a designated supervisor of child actors during a show, ensuring their safety and readiness.”

But now we want to know what Child Wrangler means to you. You can use the comments section to
