You’ve been training. You have headshots (or are planning to get them). You have a way to get up to the LA area on very short notice on a regular basis for auditions. So how do you make it happen? What’s Next?

This two-part, 4-hour workshop on the ins and outs, vocabulary and jargon, paperwork and best practices of breaking in and making a place for yourself (or your child) in the Hollywood-centered, film/television/commercial/internet entertainment industry can help. Information will be shared in two parts over two days - participation each evening is $45 each, or join both sessions for $75.

If two adults from the same household wish to attend, the second person is $20 for one or $40 for both - child/teen performers attend free with the paid attendance of a parent or guardian. Performers of all ages are welcome, though it may not hold the interest of younger children.

There are a limited number of seats available for this workshop, which will take place in a private home and will include light snacks and beverages. Questions? Call (562) 225-8177
