“I just had a self tape audition this week and was able to implement some of your tips and tricks! The results looked more polished and professional than anything I’ve previously submitted and I’m already feeling more confident in my ability to self tape going forward.”

Jack Bohnenstiehl 

“Thank you so much for having this class (The Business of Acting) here in Kansas City. I greatly appreciate you taking time just to help others on their acting journey. I am really excited to take what I have learned today and put it to use!!”

Shelby Dominguez

“I have learned so much and am seriously excited to jump back into the acting world! You’ve given me what I need to make a solid game plan.”

Shannon Walsh

I just wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude to you! He has truly enjoyed and has learned so much from this class (Audition Lab) that he will carry with him into future auditions. Thank you for sharing your incredible talent and knowledge this week.”

Anesa Allaire (Coterie Theatre Mom)

I have been so hungry for next level training as an actor from someone with current experience from bigger markets, & especially on the business side, for an incredibly long time. I know what I’m capable of regardless of my zip code so I’m incredibly appreciative to have Andrea as a resource as long as she’s in the area.

My favorite part was learning in depth about how to go into a headshot session more prepared to set yourself up for success for the roles you’ll be submitting for. Along with an in depth look at how to structure your reel to sell your strengths the best you can as well as an in depth look at the acting website tools & how to make them work for you. I’m also very excited to put the guidance on representation outreach into play once all my tools are updated to the level of professionalism Andrea gives guidance on. Why let your zip code get in the way when self-taping is so much more widely accepted?!

Andrea is an amazing teacher. She’s really effective & you can tell she really enjoys it too. We just don’t have this information available to us right now locally until Andrea decided to teach. And, we’re lucky to have her as the one to disseminate it all as long as she’s able to. I feel so relieved to feel much more prepared to act on my talents outside of my current market while still living here. And I only hope that more local work is on the horizon which we’ll all be super prepared for after learning what Andrea has to teach. That way we make an amazing impression & more productions could be willing to cast locally.”
