Beginnings Hollywood provides a firsthand introduction to the experience, skills and knowledge necessary for the successful pursuit of employment in film and television. I will receive some professional coaching, direction, and feedback exactly as if on-set. Some advanced training in acting for the screen, positive nutrition and lifestyle guidance, an insider’s knowledge of the Los Angeles film and television industry. Mr. Sklar will provide me with the opportunity and environment that will only help me blossom with my skill set. His workshop will also expand my knowledge on what to look out for in the Music and Performing Arts world.
My interest in Music and Performing Arts began at a young age. The variety of plays, dramas and musicals that I have performed in since 2014 include, but aren’t limited to:
The Youngstown Connection - (January 2017 - August 2018)
Porgy and Bess - Opera Western Reserve/Stambaugh (2018)
Lucia Di Lammermoor - Opera Western Reserve/Stambaugh (2017)
Your Masterpiece Easter Play - Rising Star Baptist Church (4 years)
Nativity: The Hope (2016) (The Green Family Dynasty at The Youngstown Playhouse)
I’m Good To A No Good Man (2016)
RagTime - Chaney High School (2014)
Man Of The House - Chaney High School (2014)
The cost for this experience and knowledge is $3,000 which includes all-inclusive tuition for six-day workshop including class curriculum, housing, meals, supervision, tours and airfare. I will be escorted by my father to ensure my safety and security at all times. The workshop begins on April 13th, 2019.
The deadline for this opportunity is February 13th, 2019.
