This is a great project for students thinking of being actors, dancers, writers, or directors who want to go to New York City to work as professionals. "How much does it cost to live in NYC? What is Actors Equity?" It gives students a lot of practical knowledge about the finanacial challenges of living in an exciting and expensive city while trying to succeed in the entertainment business. They will gain real world information about travel, budgeting, daily costs and so much more.
It culminates with an exciting presentation that should be as valuable to the audience as it is for the speaker.
