GREEN THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
How serious about the business of showbiz are you? Puzzled about agents? Perplexed by Unions? Pale with fear about the TPS auditions? Parenting a burgeoning actor? Does the word "business" send your inner artist screaming back to Acting School? Need some guidance and demystification of the Seattle Acting scene and beyond? Need someone with knowledge and experience to take a frank, unbiased look at your resume/pix? Need some guidance on your audition slate? Have questions about where and who to train with, what resources to use, what virtual pavement to pound? Do you just want to review and confirm that you are taking charge of your acting career? Are these questions on your mind:
*What are TPS Auditors looking for?
*What legit agents should I submit to?
*When and should I join the Unions?
*What can I do to organize my acting career?
*What tools should I have to market myself?
*How can I present myself more professionally at the TPS Auditions?
