CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Hollywood's A-list talent managers, agents and casting directors will descend on Cincinnati for an acting, singing and educational program that will help discover the region's brightest upcoming stars and prepare them for show business. CAMP: HOLLYWOOD CINCINNATI Director and Founder Lori Knight says the one-of-a-kind event will take place at the Millennium Convention Hotel located at 150 West 5th Street in Cincinnati June 15-19, 2011.
"The CAMP: HOLLYWOOD CINCINNATI mission is to offer quality training and feedback from top notch professionals in areas of the country where access to the entertainment industry is limited," says Knight. "There are no promises or gimmicks, just great training, information and a chance for Hollywood's future stars to network and learn from successful Hollywood industry professionals and coaches."
CAMP: HOLLYWOOD CINCINNATI is open to aspiring actors of all experience levels ages 7-21. Over five days, instruction will focus on acting, singing, dancing. Classes and workshops will highlight non-performance related skills as well, including marketing, promotion and cold reading. "CAMP: HOLLYWOOD CINCINNATI will introduce a GLEE inspired class where participants learn a song and dance routine that will be the opening act for the end-of-camp showcase," says Knight.
Reservations are limited. Tuition is $2,250.00 and includes all classes, materials, events and the showcase. Food and beverages are provided during camp events. A non-refundable $300.00 deposit is required to enroll.
