New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts’ Richard Robichaux will present “The Seven Secrets of the Working Actor.” This workshop is open to high school students looking for answers to the biggest questions in the business: Do I join a union? Do I need an agent or a manager? Or both? Where do I find an agent? How do I get an agent? Do I move to Los Angeles, New York or I can I stay near home? I want to audition but where do I find them?

Be ready to work like never before in this workshop designed with the professional actor in mind. This masterclass is free and open to any current ninth through 12 grade student who registers with NOCCA by March 30.
