Item Description

Is the stage calling your name?  Have what it takes to be an actor?  Allow the Acting Company Members from TACT (Wall Street’s 2012 “Company of the Year”) to help jump-start your career.

Say cheese!  Jeffrey C. Hawkins will personally work with you in an exclusive photo session to take your perfect headshot. Use it for your auditions, or in the Playbill when you’re cast on Broadway.

Next - Hone that monologue with one-on-one coaching lessons with Victoria Mack (remember her from TACT’s Hard Love?) who holds an MFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.  You’ve seen her exercising her craft everywhere you turn, including Broadway’s Venus in Fur, Mint Theater’s The Fatal Weakness, and a recurring role on "The Good Wife."  In her spare time, Victoria teaches contemporary scene study, classical texts, audition technique, and voice and movement at the New York Film Academy as well as private coaching.  Be sure to thank Victoria in your Tonys acceptance speech.

But wait!  There’s more… Do you have an endearing southern accent that you just can’t seem to quit?  Struggling to make sense of classical text?  John Plumpis -- professor of speech, text, and voice at Montclair State University -- will provide his expertise by guiding you through an in-depth analysis of the text with an emphasis on the precise speech of your audition pieces.  He’ll have you speaking like a native Shakespearean in no time.  

Rest assured The Actor’s Starter Pack will be what you need to get you on your professional actor feet!
