Peter Sklar, who has coached, directed or discovered many of Hollywood's top young stars and hundreds of others, is offering a complimentary lecture titled: “So You Want To Be A Performer ...” at noon Saturday, March 10, at Young Actors Theatre, 609 Glenview Drive.

The free talk will provide life-changing insights into the relationship between self-esteem, health and professional success, with a behind-the-scenes look at the causes of eating disorders, stage mothers, industry scams and the role of talent agents and casting directors.

The lecture will be followed by personal interviews with young members of the audience.

“So You Want to be a Performer ...” is based on Sklar's three decades of personal experience with young performers, an Ivy League pedigree, and his long list of successful protŽgŽs who include Sara Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, Mischa Barton, Rick Schroder and Ricki Lake.

He has been the subject of multiple feature-length articles in the New York Times, appeared as a guest expert on "Donahue," was recently interviewed on "True Hollywood Story," and has had his work presented on the Bravo Channel and "Good Morning America." He's currently developing a musical titled “The Kid Who Played the Palace,” to be directed by five-time Tony-award nominee William Martin.

Children under 18 must be accompanied by one of their parents, and no one under age 6 will be admitted. Reservations are required. Call 386-6602, ext. 1 for reservations.
