PARENT OF 'CHILD ACTOR' Q&A
w/ AMY GREENE
SUNDAY, APRIL 8
3PM - 4:30PM
I have had a lot of parents ask me all sorts of questions pertaining to this CRAZY business. In order to help facilitate in answering ALL your questions as honestly and specifically as possible, I have asked AMY GREENE (parent of LIZZY GREENE, Dawn on Nickelodeon's Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, Dawn) to attend!
Amy is a parent of a working child actor who has been on a successful series for four seasons, and just booked a Series Regular this season for ABC's one hour drama pilot called A Million Little Things.
The Greene's are a family based here in Allen, TX, so Amy understands the rigor of balancing life here and life in Los Angeles. She is gracious enough to share her experiences and wisdom with us.
Please take advantage of this workshop - I do not offer this type very often!
No question is "silly" or "dumb!" Please attend in hopes that you can get a grasp on this business that your child is so PASSIONATE about!
