New date for this event is Saturday May 22, 2010 from 1 pm to 3 pm
Meeting top Casting Directors is one of the single most important steps your skilled child actor can take on their journey to becoming a “working” child actor.
On Saturday May 22 at 1pm. to 3:00 pm, Valley West Actors Space(one of our favorite acting studios in Los Angeles) will host a casting workshop with Niner Parikkh of Joey Paul Casting who is currently casting the feature films “Honey 2” and “Bring it On: Fight to the Finish.” They just completed casting the true story “Soul Surfer” with Anna Sophia Robb, Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt. Joey Paul also cast Disney shows, “Phil of The Future,” “That’s So Raven,” “Cory In The House,” and “Imagination Movers.” This is a great opportunity for child actors interested in television and film because Joey Paul Casting does a lot of both. Please bring 2 head shots with resumes attached to the class.
The talented Debbie Entin of Rising Talent Management will also be heading up this workshop. Her clients have recently appeared on the TV Shows “Suite Life on Deck”, “iCarly,” “Las Vegas” and “Cold Case.” After her last workshop at VWAS (which my daughter attended) two of the child actors were called in by the Casting Director from Nickelodeon and three were asked to meet with Debbie for possible representation. This class is for children ages 6-18.
Valley West Actors Space is located at 22743 Ventura Blvd. Woodland Hills. Each participant will receive written feedback and the cost of the workshop is a very reasonable $75 and only$50 for registered members of VWAS. Please enroll quickly as the class is limited to only 25 lucky students!

My girls would love to test the waters of acting. Sadly, we’re in Atlanta. Any advice?
I would suggest getting them involved in any and all theater classes and groups in your immediate area, enrolling them in an introductory acting class, exploring dance and voice training and signing up for LACasting.com (which lists castings from all over the USA) These are some very basic first steps you can take to prepare them for future opportunities. Good Luck & Have Fun!
