I BELIEVE IN MY PROGRAM!
Like in the "Let's Get Real" article above, As a COACH, I believe in my program. It works! BRYCE CASS is actually the THIRD student who has gone to L.A. & booked a big part on a T.V. Show within three weeks. The first one was Hayley Orrantia, who is filming her third season of "THE GOLDBERGS" & The second one was Belle Shouse, who worked as a series regular the first season of "SECRETS AND LIES" where she had a pivotal role!
Also, Have you checked out my Hall of Fame lately? It is crazy that a studio in Texas has more stars and working actors that come out of it than most studios from L.A. and New York. Many powerful people in the industry in L.A. say there is no other school like mine. That is why we get the quality of industry guests that we do here! AGAIN, Check out my Hall of Fame! Most Everyone on my HALL OF FAME studied with me from 3 1/2 years to 10 years. (Selena Gomez- 3 1/2 years, Demi -6 years, Thomas Mann- Almost 5 years , Bryce Cass-10 years) Check it out here! Cathryn Sullivan's Hall of Fame!
REGISTRATION for the upcoming MAY workshops
AND SUMMER SESSIONS for JUNE are listed down below.
Registation will be SUNDAY, MARCH 20th at 1:30pm.

I have always said that if I could have an actor everyday, I could make a star or at least- a working actor -out of them---if they work hard and do their homework! PLUS Come on---this is ACTING! It's so much more fun than Math or Science homework!..AND THIS studio is seen as the FARM and where seeds are planted & bloom into deep and wonderful actors. Agents, Casting Directors and HEADS of Casting in L.A. want to know who my next new hot star is.
AND GUESS WHAT?! Lots of our Favorite AIDES, MASTER TEACHERS, and even FRONT DESK FAVORITES will be back this summer!

STEPHEN DINH will be back to teach "Serious Voice-over for Master Students" the last week of June. TAYLOR TIPPINS, Front desk favorite who's been in L.A. will be back for part of the summer coming back to front desk. JACOB AUDIRSCH will be back from college and will be aiding. He misses working at the studio & will be there all summer! CARLY STUDER is coming back from L.A. to teach AC (Acting for Camera classes designed for 6-9 year olds) and Pre-AC classes (4-5 years olds-The only time we begin them in the program at this age is in the Summer when we have time to take care of them)!

It starts with the Student learning exactly how to self-tape correctly with a monitor on the outside of the glass for Parents to listen in -who want to hear it all for themselves. There will be a chance for each child to direct and Be directed by another student in the class so they can get use to the process.
Parents will have a small session themselves if they want to ask questions or understand the process so that when it comes to a taping facility not being available or they have an afternoon to get a taped audition into their agent, the parent and student will be confident in their ability. Different genres, clothes for each one, What are the key problems with your tapings will be addressed as well. Many parents who have taken this class along with their child have gotten callbacks & even booking after taking this class!
