Are you ready to make the leap to professional acting or enroll in the theatre department at universities but don’t know how to prepare a good headshot and resume?  Do you know what a professional headshot and resume should look like?  Perhaps you have them but you aren’t sure if they’re working for you. Having the right tools enhances your credibility as an actor.  Even if you don’t have a lot of experience, we’ll show you how to structure your resume to highlight the work you have done and the training you have received.

What to bring/prepare:

–          A paper copy of your current resume and an 8×10 headshot, if you have them already

–          If you have a laptop (or other device) with a digital copy of your resume that you would like to edit it during the workshop, please bring it with you.  Make sure device batteries are fully charged to avoid competition for outlets!

–          A list of all previous acting experience (stage, film, voice over, etc.)

–          A list of all training in theatre, voice, and dance

–          A list of special skills.  For example, if you plan on auditioning as an extra for a film, do you drive standard shift?  Have you had stage combat certification?  Can you juggle or ride a unicycle?

What to expect:

–          A lecture on what makes a good headshot for theatre and for film/tv

–          A lecture on what makes a good resume

–          A handout of Actor Resources

–          A template resume, if you are starting from scratch

–          A review of your current headshot and resume, if you have one

–          Focused feedback on how to improve your headshot and resume

Katie Hudson’s passion for theatre started at a young age performing with local theatres such as Growing Stage, Pickwick Players, and Sterling Playmakers. During her young adult career, she studied Musical Theatre at an advanced level and, by her senior year in high school, taught her first class as a Teacher’s Aid for a freshman Basic Acting class. During her collegiate years, she performed in main stage shows such as Medea, Romeo and Juliet, Ice Wolf, Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Speed of Darkness. She also followed the path of teaching by directing studio shows such as Bringing All Back Home, Sight Unseen, and Reckless. Katie graduated from Radford University with her Bachelor’s degree in Theatre with a focus in both Performance and Directing. Katie has worked as a Stage Manager, Director of a Theatre Department and as a Director of an After-School Program. With a firm belief that everyone is a singer and everyone is an actor, Katie strives to find pieces that both fit the need of the individual student’s learning process and challenge them to take their skills to the next level yet give them the confidence they need to push them farther.
