The passengers sailing on the S.S. American from New York to England are an unusual lot. Among them are a gangster, an evangelist turned nightclub crooner, a society debutante, wealthy businessman and many more! The madcap antics of a love triangle at sea, a myriad of mistaken identities and a lively Cole Porter musical score, including "You're the Top," "I Get a Kick out of You" and "It's De-Lovely," make for a special night of energy and entertainment. Get ready to join in the fun as this cast of characters dances its way across the Atlantic - and onto the Starlight stage.

The new book Lights, Camera…YOU! lays out all the steps an actor needs to succeed. Resume help to the terminology used during shoots and bookings. Advice is given from talent agents and casting directors all over the nation. Jean Liebau, owner of Talent Unlimited, is one of the interviewed agents!
Here are a few quotes from Jean’s interview (found on page 61):
Jean Liebau of Talent Unlimited, Inc.
KANSAS CITY, MO
Is there anything that an actor can do to mess up the audition?
Jean says, "Yes, they can talk too much, they can ask to do it over several times, they should never say they just read it, they should never say they did not have time to read it, etc."
Any advice you’d like to give to actors?
Jean says, "It is extremely competitive. Don't take it personally if you do not land the job. Keep trying and keep studying."
The author, René Ashton, has been working in the entertainment industry since she was 21-years old. She has worked in over 70 commercials and appeared in numerous TV shows. After all of her work and experience she has recently released her new book Lights, Camera…YOU! It is an actor’s guide to making money doing TV commercials in L.A. or Any Town, U.S.A.
René’s book consists of 17 chapters helping actors find their niche in the entertainment industry and how to make money once you get there. She covers a breakdown of the major markets (NY, Chicago, and L.A), gives advice on getting a great headshot, provides resume tips, helps with utilizing the Internet, clarifies the role of an agent, outlines union vs. non-union, and what to do before, during and after a shoot.
Lights, Camera…YOU! is a wonderful tool for any actor. The book has received rave reviews since its June 2009 release:
“The only thing better than René Ashton’s, Lights, Camera…YOU! is getting the commercial you’ve auditioned for – if you buy her book, chances are, you will.”
--Adam Novak, head of the Story Department, William Morris Agency
“Her enthusiasm is downright contagious!”
--Dru Mouser, Actress
“It is a valuable recap for those looking to enter the business as well as those in the business. All the details and leg work that people do not know how to do or are too lazy to do is done for them.”
--Louis Fiola, Paramount Executive
