We did it!
The next day we had a business workshop with the everhelpful Tony Pastor. As president of Actor's Connection, he gave us so much on the business of the business. After two hours, our brains were about to explode with all of the useful information he gave us! After lunch we went through a private coaching with diretor Gary John LaRossa. He is amazing and was so sweet to all of us. His insights and tweakings brought our showcase numbers to a higher level.
Then it was time for the showcase. We started with the closed one, took a dinner break, and performed the open one. All of the agents and managers that came were really cool. We made some good connections and got some interviews for the next few days!
Thanks to everyone at Actors Connection, especially Shorey Walker. She made our showcase move seamlessly and was a fabulous hostess. Thanks to everyone at the TU theatre department. Jim Gregory, Machele Dill, Erin Maclaine, Lisa Wilson, Susan Barrett, Dr. Cook, the fabulous Sandy Plaster, and our fellow theatre students who helped support us. Many, many, many thanks to Dean Benedicktson at TU. Without him, this trip would never have happened. Thanks also to the communities and our familes that supported us with this. To the class of 2012, it's your turn now! Go make us proud. We will see in New York next May! :)
