so i actually did an audition for john robert powers(long island branch thingy) on sunday and it is VERY believable they brought in this kid who was from Changeling(the movie) -or at least that's what they said he was from!. and then after you do the reading and stuff(after your all excited and you think you did awesome) they give you an orange booklet and inside has prices for theses classes!. they start at $1,950 and run all the way up to $9,999< no kidding! so of course i didn't do it!. and the special "elite" side starts at $5,900 to include head shots and classes!. i think its a waste of your money!.!. but if you want to waste $10,000 go ahead!. :]Www@QuestionHome@Com

JR Powers is not an agency they are a school that can sell you overpriced classes in poise and acting along with overpriced photo services!.

They will take anybody who is willing to pay for their services!.

Legitimate talent agents make money by taking a percentage from the work they book for you!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

yes it costs a lot of money and i would say it's a rip-off because they teach you ettique and how to speak and not really hands on in acting!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

They'll just take your money!.
Do plays, and things!.
you don't go searching for agents,
if you got what it takes,
they find you!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
