Seeking Representation 101: Effective Tools for Advancing your Acting Career (FREE)
with Career Coach Annie Chadwick
Tuesday, October 17, 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Part of a monthly series of free workshops.
Creating a successful performance career is still a somewhat illusive path. Most aspiring artists begin with the assumption that if they can quickly sign with a good agent or personal manager then their career will instantly take-off. Representation is an important component to any performance career but in many instances it is not necessarily the most advisable first step. This career building workshop will give you five steps to take before approaching an agent or manager; the most effective ways to begin your campaign for representation; and how to successfully work with your agent/manager once you have one.
From the publisher of the #1 selling NYC industry guides, NYC Agent Directory, NYC Casting Directors, NYC Personal Manager Directory, and the newly published NYC theatre sourcebook, On Stage, Annie Chadwick will give you the tools to set attainable and successful goals to move your career to the next level in the busy NYC Fall Season. Her career building workshops and classes help you develop the following qualities to consistently create success: daily targeted work, professional guidance & training, a clear plan for smart use of your time and money and finally a committed belief in your own unique creative potential and place in Show Business. With these disciplines, you can successfully move your career forward in this very competitive NYC market.
