" As a young actor, I quickly realized that there was a real void in sources that allowed you to understand what it takes to have a long and successful career in the entertainment business," Lingvall recalls. "It was based upon my personal experience that I was motivated to develop a program that would provide these aspiring actors and their parents with the proper tools to be successful."
"The Acting Camp," he says, "is different from other acting programs in that we provide a very personalized and informative approach for both the child and parent, while also creating a magical weekend that allows for both to bond and learn together. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for kids and parents to have fun while spending the weekend together and learning about how to launch a successful career in the entertainment industry," he adds.
Scheduled for March 23-25, 2012, The Acting Camp will take place at El Capitan Canyon, which is located in a seaside pocket on 300 plus acres on the picturesque Pacific coast.
