Smart Stage Parent Workshop

2017–18 Smart Stage Parent Workshop: Details Coming Soon!

For parents of young theater 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 his his dreams of being a professional performer. For questions, or more information, please contact us at 301.251.5766.


Panel speakers include: Michelle Muntifering, Capital Talent Agency, Dan Corey, Founder/Owner of DJ Corey Photography and DC Area Actor, Erin Driscoll, Member of Actor's Equity, Helen Hayes Award Winning Actress, Voice Instructor, Bostin Christopher, Assistant Professor of Theatre, Virginia Commonwealth University!
