Braady,

Have you tried filming your routine yet? It is a great learning tool and it gives you an idea of what the audience will see.

It will also show you what your weaknesses are and where your strength lies. Use these to help improve your show until you have it just right.

If your show is Oct. 28th you should be practicing on a daily basis with a minimum of 1-2 run-throughs a night, 3 preferably depending on the length of the show.

What age are you performing for and how long is your show?

Good luck. I wish you well.

Would you consider posting your show over in the theatre? I would love to see it.

Why? Age doesn't matter. Maturity does. I am living proof. I'm 15 and I perform for adults, not just kids. And I perform for more adults, than I do kids...performing for people older than you, and keeping them entertained, is a true skill, so age really isn't a factor here...

Actually, I'm 15 as well. I find kids MUCH more harder to keep their attention.

Braady,

I was really hoping that you would put up a video of one of your rehearsals prior to performing. Woud you consider that?



Change of subject ==========

Ah, the age issue---

That is such a tough subject, because I see both sides. I do agree that most of the time you do need to be older or at least project an older, maturer image. A lot of times kids can't pull that off. The reason for that is two fold-- 1) You have to not only be a proficient entertainer; 2) You must be able to handle both children and adults, which means you have to have some kind of leadership training (IMHO) to be able to command the attention of both age levels.

Again, everyone has the opportunity to be hired for a show at one time or another, that is the easy part--- it is whether you are hired for that call back which will tell you if you were really ready to perform at any given time. It is the response of the crowd. It is the feedback of the event planners. You have to listen honestly to it all-- negative or positive, and learn from it to improve.

Can a youth performer excel and do a good job? Yes, most definitely. Can they earn a good reputation? Again, yes! BUT, it takes a LOT of hard work. It is NOT easy as I am sure those with experience here can tell you that.

Sorry to get off topic Braady---

Agreed. Age doesn't matter necessarily (although if you are older people do seem to pay a bit more attention to you), but maturity definitely does matter!
