Smart Stage Parent Workshop

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 1:30–5:30 pm

For parents of young theatre professionals (Wintergreen Plaza location)

Your baby wants nothing more than to BE ON THE STAGE. As parents, we don’t know how to best help them achieve their goals, we worry they’ll starve (!!!), and what about college?(!!!)

This workshop has been created to provide parents with practical, solid advice to benefit their child and assist them in navigating the world of professional theater. Make no mistake, the arts world offers steady stress for kids: Auditions outnumber jobs; competition and rejection are facts of life, and there are spoken and unspoken parental expectations…

Spend the day with ATMTC – we’ll get you all squared away on how to be a smart stage parent: This special workshop will offer valuable insight, advice and tips from a professional panel including casting and collegiate professionals. Topics will include overcoming what is holding you back from getting seen by Casting Directors (it’s all about relationships), to get (or not to get) a manager & agent, to be (or not to be) equity, creating resumes and headshots that stand out (for the right reasons!), steering clear of scams, how to effectively handle rejection, and plenty of insider tips that will help you help your child follow their dreams of being a professional performer. For questions, or more information, please contact us at 301.251.5766.


Panel speakers include:

Shaun Ramesey, Vice President - ArtsBridge: Discussing College Prep




Participant fee: $60 per adult.
