Kids act up on no-school day
EDWARDS ” Hollywood 101 has scheduled its next on-camera acting workshop for Friday, a no-school day, at the Inn at Riverwalk Conference Center in Edwards.
Power Rangers star Kate Sheldon teaches kids tips for acting on-camera. Sheldon started the acting camp for kids to teach children and their parents how to get started in showbiz based on years of personal experience in Hollywood.
“There’s so much more to acting than just being talented,” Sheldon said. “There’s a formula, I believe, that really will increase your chances of success.”
Students will act out soda commercials, perform movie scenes and voice for cartoon characters. They will also host a mock talk show, write a TV news report and work on monologues.
At the end of the day, kids will take home a professional headshot photograph by local photographer Ken Pettit for use in getting an agent. Parents will get a comprehensive “Parents Info Guide” detailing how to get started in the Denver market.
Sheldon knows a thing or two about auditioning in showbiz. Power Rangers was the first television part she went out for. Out of hundreds of beautiful brunettes, Sheldon made the final cut. She was so excited she fell off her chair. You also may have seen her in commercials for America Online, 24-hour Fitness, Epson Printers, Marriott and Nissan. She also appeared in films “Bring it On” and “Almost Famous.”
“It took me years to figure out all the tricks of Hollywood, like don’t ever ask another female for advice and to wear camera blue because it shows your features better,” she said.
The workshop happens from 1-5 p.m., and the cost is $99 per student. Ages 8-18 are welcome to attend. For more information, visit http://www.hollywood101colorado.com or call (970) 376-5431.
