All kids would KILL for a shot at stardom. So they look up "agents" in the yellow pages, and all they see for the Colorado Springs area is John Robert Powers.
"Hey!" They're thinking. "This could be my chance to star in movies and Disney Channel shows!"
They go to an "interview" with their parents, where they're dragged into a crowded room with other hopeful kids and teens. A well-dressed, professional-looking salesman walks in the room, looks around with a smirk on his face, and says "Now THIS is the best crowd I've ever seen!".
After the salesman talks with each parent and aspiring actor/model/singer personally, filling their heads with fantasies of stardom and fame, he says that to make it big, they will have to attend acting/modeling class for the low, low price of $2000, and that even includes a photo shoot! After mommy writes the check, she and her child are sent home, excited that her kid is going be starring in blockbuster hits and Oreo commericals.
Unfortunately, I was fooled by John Roberts nearly four years ago. I begged my parents to drop 2000 big ones for these acting lessons that were sure to be fulfilling.
Guess what? Those classes were anything but fulfilling. I wasted my Staurday every week for ten weeks, getting blabbed at by a supposed "ex-actor" on how to say your name and recite a monologue. Tell me, does it take ten weeks to learn those two concepts? I don't think so.
Not only that, but the "auditions" held at JRP were a joke too. I never, EVER heard of one of my fellow acting classmates get a contract signed with any of the agents who held auditions at JRP, and some of those kids were extremely talented. Needless to say, I apprently did pretty awful at those audtions, even though I did EXACTLY what the teacher of the acting class told me to do.
That's not the end of it. The promised photo shoot never even happened. I signed my name on a list of those who still haven't had their shoots. That was four months ago. I still haven't heard from JRP about that.
I'm telling you people, DON'T let your dreams of stardom lead you to drop $2,000 into the greedy hands of John Robert Powers.
