Set your self up for success in the theatre and TV world. This class, offered to students (Ages 10-adult), will answer those burning questions you have about how to get an agent–and what to do once you have one. We will cover the all-important follow-up interview, as well as a variety of ways you can showcase yourself to catch their attention. (Students who register and are under 17 years old may have their parents sit in with them.) It will also give you the insider info on how the business works. Jeremy has been a casting director and agent in NYC and will help you understand the business of the business. If you are thinking about or already pursuing a career in theatre you don’t want to miss this!
Each year New Paradigm Theatre offers their signature event SO YA WANNA BE A BROADWAY STAR in the Fall, for performers who would like to receive comments on their singing performances. Broadway, Film, and TV professionals give comments in a “real-time, real-world” style to help each performer.
NPT has also begun offering more focused workshops on specific topics such as monologues, TV and Commercial acting, and now… how to get that all important agent and understand the business. Past focused classes have been presented by Emmy nominee Scott Bryce, TV star from the “Have and the Have Nots” Renee Lawless, and now NY agent Jeremy Sickels, with the Daniel Hoff Agency.
Questions he’ll answer: What kind of resumes look the best? What should your headshot look like? How do you find and contact agents? How do you follow up? What is the best way to work with an agent to find auditions? Why do you need an agent? How do agencies differ and what to look for? Do I really need an agent and can I submit for auditions myself…and how? And more questions about the business that you won’t learn in college and you can’t just ask once you are on your way!
After the 2.5 hour class, the participants will have a chance for Jeremy to review their headshots and resumes.
Participants in this workshop will also be considered for NPT gigs; including our summer productions and holiday shows. This workshop does not guarantee that you will get a NY agent, but it will help you understand the ins and outs of how to market yourself to them–and how to work with an agent once you get the right one!
Classes in NY such as this run for $189 and up. NPT is proud to be able to offer this class at only $55.
It will take place at NPT’s partner, Emmanuel Church in Weston CT. 285 Lyons Plain Rd.
