INSTRUCTORS:
Dr. Rebecca Hale, a former drama teacher in the Talent Education Program in Jefferson Parish, has taught acting to middle-school, high-school, and college students for many years.  In 2002 she received her Ph.D. in Educational Theatre from New York University.  She has run a thriving theatrical agency since 1994 and represents actors all over the United States.

Veleka Gray starred on stage, screen, and televison and was a contract player on six daytime dramas.  She has been a Blue Ribbon Judge for the National Emmy Awards since 1975 and has produced eight films with her students.  She has taught acting for twenty-five years in New Orleans, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and at the College of DuPage in Chicago.

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

Actors, so many of the casting directors are requesting VIDEO AUDITIONS FOR THE FIRST AUDITION (CALLBACKS ARE USUALLY IN PERSON.).
At the February Workshop last year, Robyn Nolting gave a great demonstration of how to tape your auditions.
For those of you who can't tape your auditions, Robyn can tape them for you at her home in Metairie. The cost is $25.
Email Robyn at robynnolting@gmail.com for information.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Also, CHRISTINE TONRY at ACT STUDIOS in Arabi can tape your auditions.  The cost is $35 for 30 mins. and $50 for one hour.  Christine also offers classes for kids and adults; private coaching for kids; and parent counseling and advice. Email: Team@ACT STUDIOS.ORG

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL ACTORS!  IT IS A PLEASURE REPRESENTING YOU!  2019 MARKS THE 25TH YEAR THAT HALE TALENT IS IN BUSINESS.  LET'S MAKE 2019 THE BEST YEAR EVER!  FOR ALL MY ACTORS AND THEIR FAMILILES, I WISH YOU PEACE, HAPPINESS, GOOD HEALTH, AND LOTS OF ACTING WORK IN 2019!
