"The Acting Industry: It’s never too late!" Workshop
This class is geared towards actors age 40 to seniors who would love to delve into the acting industry for fun and profit. This seminar will help you understand the casting process as well as the realities of work for middle aged to older performers.
The focus of this class will be learning the type of work that is available locally and how to search for work and how to be seen by casting directors and agents. We'll also discuss headshots and resumes. Some of the topics to be covered will be typical situations mature actors will encounter and how to best understand the casting process. We will go over how to get started and how to best maximize and market your non union/union work opportunities. Specific workshops are available catering to your needs.
Kathy Wickline says “The Philadelphia market needs mature individuals who are interested in reinventing themselves as (part time) actors and commercial print models (i.e. real people modeling). This is not the LA market where we need the younger generation. Tom Roy is a genuine and fun individual with a ton of practical experience. He is a wonderful character actor and his personality is a blend between John Wayne and Betty White. This is a rarely offered seminar. Come see how to reinvent your life, book work and make a little money while having fun. Let me assure you do not need to invest in a portfolio and tons of photos so check out this straightforward seminar, you have nothing to lose!”
