Her background will create a connection and demonstrate that someone from West Hartford can make it in the acting world. She will discuss college and career choice, how the business has changed over the years, and what students need to do to prepare themselves for this competitive field. After leading a discussion and fielding questions, Ms. Robinson will go through the process of preparing for an audition.
