What did you do this summer?

     CoSA Musical Theatre & Drama senior Patrick Clark spent the summer honing his show biz skills. After a week in Ireland, where he brushed up on his brogue, he attended the Old Globe Theatre's Summer Shakespeare Intensive. He also participated in a one-day "Self-Management for Actors" workshop put on by Bonnie Gillespie (bonniegillespie.com). Patrick says this was an "amazing day" where he "learned how to survive in L.A." There are over 600 casting directors in L.A., so there's plenty of work available. When asked what was the most valuable thing he learned that day, Patrick said,"You need to know your 'type'. People resist people typecast, but you can't audition for everything, so you have to target your casting director." When asked what "type" he is, Patrick replied "mischievous."
