IN DEPTH:

It's hard enough to raise a kid these days, even more so if you have a young actor (ages 5-18) and are trying to help them achieve their professional goals. You love your child and want them to be successful, but the industry is a challenging and mysterious place for parents and children alike.


This 1-day seminar will help you prepare your child for successful auditions and a great career. Learn how to coach your young actor to get great feedback from casting directors, callbacks and best of all, more bookings. Learn about headshots, contracts, agents & managers, and how to balance real life with show business. And get your specific questions and concerns answered with an in-depth Q&A.


I've been involved in many aspects of this business, starting as a child actor myself, then as an acting coach for 25 years and as a casting director for more than 10 years. I love sharing my knowledge to help parents and kids maintain a strong, positive bond, alleviate stress and tension during the audition process, maintain the joy of acting, and most importantly their self confidence.
