UpComing Tour Information

Registration for the January LA Educational Tour is now Closed. We do have opening in our Summer 2019 Tour

We will be introducing our talent to the LA Market. We will be taking talent and their parents to 6 acting schools so you can discover which of the schools you and your child respond best to.

Cost for the trip is $2000. It does not include air fare & hotel. We are scheduling this, this early so you can purchase your air fare at more reasonable rates and give you time to spread out the cost of the event more easily if necessary. It does include all of the education and training you will receive that week.

We also have scheduled a class for the parents with the mom of two working actors that made the transition and she will be sharing her experiences and advice with you.

We have also secured a deal with a photographer and all talent attending will have a mini-headshot session.

We will be scheduling appointments for the talent while we are in town with agents, managers and casting. We cannot guarantee the number of appointments. In the January group they all had at least 3 appointments scheduled and some have as many as 7. It all depended on the interest from the industry professionals.

​The slots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. You can pay either $2000 up front or split into 4 payments of $500. The payment plan option  is available for the  July 2019 trip.

Paypal does have it's own financing program as well. With just a few questions it will let you know if you are approved. And they give you 6 months to pay it off with no interest.
