BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE ACTING TRAINING WORKSHOPS FOR KIDS AND ADULTS!
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, AGENT REBECCA HALE AND MASTER COACH VELEKA GRAY ARE TEAM-TEACHING TWO LEVELS OF WORKSHOPS FOR AGES SEVEN TO 100 IN METAIRIE.
LOCATION: UNITY CHURCH OF METAIRIE
                 IN THE KHAN SHOPPING PLAZA (BEHIND PARRAN'S RESTAURANT)
                 3939 Veterans Blvd., Suite 2B
                 Metairie, LA 70002
                 This small church is not a separate building like most churches.  It is an office suite
                 in the back of the building, not on Veterans.  You get to it from Richland, and park in
                 the parking lot there.

BEGINNER LEVEL: REGISTRATION: 11:45 A.M.   CLASS: 12:00 - 1:30 P.M.
                This class is for aspiring actors with little to no acting experience.  Learn acting basics, 
                plus how to audition.  Rehearse with real scripts for commercials and/or films, and 
                see your acting work on TV at the end of the workshop.  AGES: 7-100
                TUITION: $50, which includes a non-refundable deposit of $20 - due: October 5
                If you pay the day of the workshop, the cost is $75.  

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: REGISTRATION: 1:45 P.M.  CLASS: 2:00 - 4:00 P.M.
                This class is for actors with some experience, or actors who have attended at least                       one "Acting for the Camera" Workshop before.  Workshop focus is on intermediate 
                auditioning technique, acting for the camera, and set etiquette.  Actors will be 
                taped to see themselves on TV at the conclusion of the workshop.
                TUITION: $75, which includes a non-refundable deposit of $30 - due: October 5.
                If you pay the day of the workshop, the cost is $100.

This is an exceptional opportunity for any actor to be trained by both an agent/acting teacher and a talent judge.

Students attending our workshops have a high success rate of booking jobs soon after.  Two students from our May workshop booked commercials the following week!

"If you haven't studied with Veleka or Becky yet, jump on this chance.  If you have studied with them, you already know what a bargain this is."
Tony Fennelly, SAG-AFTRA professional actress

TIPS FOR ACTORS:
Remember that good actors continue to study their craft, so avail yourselves of my workshops, as well as workshops and acting classes taught by other reputable acting teachers!

Actors, please check your email often.  Sometimes it is easier to email you rather than phone you.
Do let me know if you change phone numbers and email addresses. ALSO, PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU RECEIVED AN EMAIL AUDITION NOTICE FROM ME.  Sometimes, actors can't attend an audition, but they don't respond to the email I sent them.  I don't know if you didn't receive the email, or you can't attend the audition, so please respond.

Remember to stay in touch with me.  All acting books will tell you to stay in touch with your agent. You are not bothering me.  If I don't hear from you for a year, I'll assume you are not interested in acting work, and I will drop you from Hale Talent.

If you change your appearance (new hair color, shorter hair, grew a mustache, etc.), please let me know.  You will need new headshots, too.  Don't change anything right after an audition or after a callback, until you know if you have booked the job or not.

Please let your agent know if you plan to be out of town, especially out of the country, for an extended period of time.  Agents work very hard for actors!  It's discouraging to work so hard and have an actor forget to inform the agent that he/she won't be in Louisiana for awhile.
