Here at The Price Group, we are dedicated to allowing our actors to live up to their full potential by helping them continually and consistently book high profile acting jobs in both Film/TV and Theater.
Here is a little bit about my background: My dad, a New York Supreme court judge, was the first person to tell me I would have a career in entertainment- he would lol when I impersonated TV characters to the tee. When I was a child, my mom took me to see the musical Cabaret, and from that moment on, my interest in the entertainment world only grew. I attended the The United Nations International School (UNIS) and am a native of New York City. I am a S.U.N.Y Purchase grad with a major in Theatre Studies. I worked and interned for Universal Studios, and have directed in California, New York and Pennsylvania at Penn State's Centre Stage Theatre. I also resided three years in Casting at The San Diego Repertory Theatre and mentored as an agent for Beverly Anderson - the longest running female independent, agent in New York City.
All of my experiences have allowed me to become a top entertainment talent agent, industry professional consultant, master class instructor and coach for musical theater and drama students at several universities and private New York City educational and networking studios for professional actors.
The Price Group is a family; we are loyal to our clients and they are just as loyal to us. We have high expectations for our actors, and we make sure that our actors keep growing and and keep working.
This blog will inspire actors who are passionate about their craft to persevere through the ups and downs of the business and continue to work for their dreams without letting frustrations outweigh their love of acting. Achieving success as an actor is possible, and I am here to show you some of our talent who are making their mark in the world of entertainment!
