“We recently attended this past Premiere Showcase in Orlando, Florida. This was the first modeling and acting event my VERY shy daughter Hailey has ever attended. She had amazing coaches there that helped her prepare for a couple of days prior to the program. She also received helpful tips from celebrities during the 3 celebrity intensive classes she attended. To my surprise, when Hailey stepped on that stage to do her showcases for acting and modeling, she was confident and comfortable. The staff did such an amazing job with her in such a short amount of time that she was no longer shy. She has met a lot of great people and also made some new friends. The experience was amazing for Hailey as well as myself. Hailey went on to win 1st place for top talent in her age group. We are now preparing to attend Premiere On Set at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. It was the best thing that’s ever happened to us. I’m so thankful for the Premiere staff. It was so worth the long travel from Hawaii to Florida. I recommend this program to every child wanting to make it in the industry. It’s a really great experience.”
“My daughter heard the advertisement about auditions for Premiere on the radio in our hometown and was very excited when she called and was able to speak to the staff! She took the initiative to audition, did well and at the callback, she told the staff she would work hard over the next year in order to attend Premiere. My husband and I agreed to let her attend Premiere since we could see how much she wanted to do this.
We began receiving emails from Premiere and we followed all of the recommendations as we prepared monologues/scenes, wardrobe, headshots/comp cards and resume. All of the information was incredibly helpful. Finally, the trip to Orlando, FL was upon us! We arrived early and once at the hotel, there was no need to remain skeptical. Premiere had booked the Convention Center at the Dolphin, 5 celebrities were there from the Nickelodeon and Disney channels (my daughter was able to work with Mikey Reid from “Victorious”) and MANY Industry Professionals from NY and LA (casting directors/managers/agents)!!!
All of the staff at Premiere made you feel comfortable and like part of the family. Ambassadors were extremely friendly and helpful in working with the talent to refine their acting skills and to teach them voice exercises. We learned about the acting business from all angles, but what was most informative was the Q & A with the Industry Professionals. The week culminated in a “Red Carpet” event and Awards Show.
Unexpectedly, my daughter won 1st Place Top Talent in her age group due to the number of callbacks from the Industry Professionals. We were in shock! We were hoping for at least one callback (rather than none) and she received 18 callbacks. She has been on a high since and as we contact those that were interested in her, they are replying promptly to our emails! Thus, there was no need to be skeptical. It really was a great experience and a fun week for us with pleasant surprises and hopefully, more to come! All thanks to Premiere!!!”
“Going into Premiere I was so hesitant about the whole process and really had no idea of what to expect.
What my 2 children, Ashley and John, got out of it was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Honestly, they couldn’t believe what they went thru. The fact that they had acting workshops, running the longggg runway, meeting celebrities and then to top it off audition in front of so many agents….. and with the ending of actually having callbacks……. where just today we already had 2 agents contact my son and my daughter to go on auditions. Truthfully, my children would feel the same way even if the agents hadn’t called them back, simply because the week was just full of energy and a huge learning experience.
I feel like I want to write you a more proper letter because I would love for you to publish it on how I feel that when you are around scouting for new people that the parents aren’t really told in a more “calm” manner of what their kids are going to go thru. If I had just realized that “showcases” meant actually getting up in front of the agents more often, I might have gone for a higher option for both my children. I also believe that it’s soooooooooo important to tell parents that the kids meet soooo many new friends around the country…the world. All these new friends with the same interests and energy!!!”

“I would like to thank everyone from Premiere for giving my daughter, Soniyah Louis, the opportunity to come out and meet so many different people from all over the world. My daughter as well as my family had a memorable time out in Orlando. Thanks again. What’s the next step? She has gotten a callback and we will get contacted next month with the information. We’ll keep you posted…”
