Jared Howelton has appeared in Broadway's Hamilton, and toured internationally as Donkey, from Shrek The Musical!
On March 8th, Boston Arts Academy students had the opportunity to hear from Jared about the acting industry. He shared his experience as a broadway actor and breaking into the profession and how he's approaching his goals for work in television.
"Just show who you are, when you walk into a room be proud to say 'this is me' and let go of how someone else has played a character you want"
BAA students grapple with the questions all artists face; what is the reality of show business, and what are the steps to get booked? After landing a role, how do you prepare to perform correctly?
We are so grateful to have had an honest dialogue with Jared and become inspired for our upcoming work.
