Acting for the Young Ones (Ages 6-12)


This is a course, offered only in private sessions, is designed to help the parent who wants to get their child or children involved in "the business." If you'd like to see your kids prepared to audition for feature films, national TV commercials, and/or local plays (such as at the Arizona Theatre Company or the Invisible Theatre) - this is the package for you. (Also, I can gear the entire package to the L.A. market.)

It is typically offered as a package of three private sessions. The cost is $190 for one child or $200 for two children, due at the start of the first session. Here's what we'll cover at each of the three sessions:

Session One -1 hour private session with just the parent (or parents). We'll cover the tools needed to participate on a pro level - photos - and I'll create the résumé). I'll give you information about legit agents in Arizona and we can talk about whether you want to have one or not. I'll inform you about unions and many other aspects of the business - and especially how to steer clear of less than reputable situations.

Session Two - 1 hour private session with just the parent (or parents). We'll finish going over all the information in session one, and also open session two up to any questions you may have about the business and/or auditioning - also I'll begin to go over with you how you break down scripts and run lines with your child at the audition.

Session Three - 1.5 hour private with the parent and one or two children. What we'll do here is: I'll work with you and your child, teaching you how to break down the script, communicate it to your child and run the lines - and - I'll audition your child several times, showing him/her how to impress the casting directors at the auditions.

So - three private sessions, booked about a week to ten days in advance, and we open the door for you and your child to audition for the really big projects.

Also available are individual private sessions (with parent and one or two children):

  • 1-hour private with one child, $65
  • 1.5-hour private with one child, $95
  • 1.5-hour private with two children, $95
