In this special educational hour, we invite all actors and parents. Erica will answer all questions you may have regarding the acting business for youth and adults. There’s certainly a protocol as to how to approach the business, as well as a general formula for success. It’s your job as parent to understand and do what’s in the best interests of your child to further their young acting careers. AND, if there’s time, bring your monologues and top acting coach Todd Etelson will give comments and feedback so all parents can get a better appreciation of the craft.
