Features
Footlight Dreams by : David Ladd


For many young people; the most intense performing experiences they may have are as part of a cast in a musical or play. Or; they may fall in love with a Broadway or touring production to the extent that they jump headlong into the pursuit of such a dream without the necessary planning and thought that should accompany this big decision. Still; others may have more advanced training and background but holes remain in their knowledge of what it will take to be successful in the business.

Veteran actor and educator David Ladd has created a practical guide for performers; teachers and parents to help the decision-making process for aspiring performers as they contemplate their futures in the theatre.

Drawing on his experience as a singer/dancer/actor; including a sabbatical year in New York where he chronicled his challenges and successes; Ladd presents the full range of information a student would need before setting their sights on a music theatre career; including interviews from professional actors detailing the significant obstacles to success in the field; statistics on costs of housing; transportation and training; and the audition/casting process for a new; non-Equity performer.

The final section of the book guides the reader as he/she explores their own career options; with thought-provoking questions; journaling opportunities and career resources; making this chapter especially useful for teachers working one-on-one with students or in the classroom.

It's not an easy path; but if performing is your passion; pursue it with an open mind and listen to your heart – the successes can be glorious!
