SMART STAGE PARENT WORKSHOP

SUNDAY, MARCH 27, 2022 | 1:00PM-5:00PM | WINTERGREEN PLAZA, ROCKVILLE
FOR PARENTS OF YOUNG THEATRE PROFESSIONALS

Your student wants nothing more than to BE ON THE STAGE! As parents, we don’t know how to best help them achieve their goal, we worry they’ll starve! And what about college! 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 workshop provides parents with practical, solid advice to benefit their child and assist them in navigating the world of professional theater. Topics will include overcoming what is holding you back from getting seen by casting director (it’s all about relationships), to get (or not get) a manager and/or 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.

Panel speakers include: Leayne Dempsey, CEO and Founder of TheatreMajor, Dan Corey, Founder/Owner of DJ Corey Photography, Danica Rodriguez, Casting Director – Shakespeare Theatre Company, Renea Brown, DC Area Actor and Member of Actors’ Equity, and more.

Participation fee: $60.00 per parent
