Congratulations Lou Wagner!

Lou Wagner is a true professional! Not only is he is one of the greatest actors I have ever worked with, he has the biggest heart in the whole world. He works so incredibly hard at perfecting his skills as an actor and still has time to volunteer at a dog rescue center EVERY weekend. Check out Lou in this Western!

You can also hear Lou this Saturday at noon on KTLA, as he will be on a segment of The Young Icon, which is running nationally! He also booked a supporting role in the film Doughboy and will film a couple days in West Va and a Pottery Barn Teens Commercial. Seriously he is on fire and we are so incredibly proud of him!!! WAY TO GO LOU!!! We love you to pieces and love having you in our program and in our lives!

Here are a few pictures from The Disney Tangled commercial I cast a few months ago. It played on The Disney Channel and in theaters before the movie. The girl I cast, Kori, said her family was screaming when they saw her on the big screen!! Congrats to all on this job - it was awesome!

The kids were super cute and so much fun to work with!

Studio E Winter Industry Showcase!!

Our Industry Showcase was incredible!! Lots of great agents and managers attended including Osbrink, AEF, Mavrick, Bobby Ball, Rage Talent, Appletini, Cinda Snow Management, Rex Talent Management and Studio Talent Group! We also had 9 directors and producers (some from Disney!!) and 2 casting companies (Lisa Pantone and Susan Turner). The kids and teens were AWESOME!! As always, they gave it 150% and it showed!! Some were looking for representation, while others were there to introduce themselves to more casting directors, producers and directors! We are extremely proud to say that 70% of our kids and teens have been approached by agents so far and some have even been called in to audition for a new Disney series!!! Congratulations to all our amazing actors / actresses!!! We are constantly blown away by the level of commitment, passion and love they all have for the industry!

Congratulations Brook Lloyd!

MISS BROOKIE LLOYD IS OUTSTANDING! Seriously - you MUST see her in action - she is one of the funniest, sassiest, cutest kids ever!!! Brook just booked and filmed an animated Christmas Special for the Hallmark Channel called "Hoops and Yoyo Ruin Christmas". She had the time of her life and just loved every single minute - you can see it all over her face in the picture!!! Brook started studying with us 6 months ago and has grown so much as an actor already and she JUST turned 7!!! She recently starred in our Studio E Showcase and blew everyone away with her comedy!! We are so proud of Brookie and just love her to pieces!!! Congratulations!!!

Studio E Parent Showcase!

The Studio E parent showcase on Saturday, February 5th was AWESOME!! We performed at the Zephyr Theatre in West Hollywood and it was a GREAT space. The show included scenes, monologues and musical numbers. The actors and actresses were outstanding and gave 150%. Lauren and I were completely blown away, as were many parents and friends! We had 26 kids/teens (ages 6 - 18) involved in this show and the energy in the room was so positive and so amazing!!

We were extremely lucky to have the amazing Alex from Enchanted Events & Designs run our concession stand! Alex is one of the greatest, sweetest people I have ever met in my whole life and she is so talented!! She is a party planner and she sure did plan a great party for us! The food was so yummy and the table design was AMAZING. Alex went with a "Shooting Star" theme and everything looked so professional and so awesome. Thanks Alex - we love you!!

She was asked to sing there this Christmas 2010 and it was unbelievable! You can also check her out in April singing the National Anthem at the Dodger's Stadium! She is a true gem!
