Q:  WHY WOULD SOME PEOPLE SAY NEXT STAR PRODUCTIONS IS A SCAM?
A:   THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO MISUNDERSTAND THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE AND DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PARTICIPANTS SHOULD PAY TO ATTEND TRAINING REHEARSALS.  THOSE THAT DO NOT HAVE

       SESSION, UNLIKE OTHER COMPANIES WHO CHARGE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR THEIR SERVICES.  FOR THOSE THAT ALREADY HAVE EXTENSIVE TRAINING, THERE IS NO COST TO ATTEND THE MEET
       AND GREET AGENT SESSION AT A NEXT REGIONAL SHOWCASE. 

Q:  IF I HAVE TALENT, I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY AN AGENCY!
A:  WE HEAR THIS STATEMENT ALOT.  CORRECT, YOU SHOULD NEVER PAY AN AGENCY TO BE REPRESENTED.  REMEMBER, NEXT IS NOT AN AGENCY AND WE DO HAVE A MINIMAL TRAINING FEE IF YOU DON'T
       ALREADY HAVE EXTENSIVE TRAINING.  DO YOU PLAY FOOTBALL?  ARE YOU ON A COMPETITIVE CHEERLEADING SQUAD?  DID YOU PAY A FEE TO TRAIN?  ABSOLUTELY!  THE SAME GOES FOR OUR INDUSTRY.  
       ALL ACTORS AND MODELS HAVE TO TRAIN TO PERFORM AND GAIN CONFIDENCE.      

Q:  WILL I BE ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL?
A:   THE TALENT AGENTS THAT ATTEND OUR  SHOWCASES CURRENTLY REPRESENT TALENT ON ALL MAJOR NETWORKS.   IF YOU CHOOSE TO SIGN WITH AN INTERESTED AGENT, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY YOU  
       COULD BE ON ANY NUMBER OF POPULAR TELEVISION  NETWORKS AND COMMERCIALS.  

Q:  IS IT GUARANTEED THAT I WILL SIGN WITH AN AGENCY AFTER PERFORMING IN A NEXT SHOWCASE?

A:   ABSOLUTELY NOT.  FIRST, WE DON'T KNOW HOW A PERFORMER WILL SHOWCASE ON THE FINAL DAY.  AS WITH ANY INDUSTRY, NOTHING IS GUARANTEED.  THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL  SIGN 
       WITH AN AGENCY AFTER  SHOWCASING WITH NEXT.  OUR MAIN GOAL IS  FOR OUR PERFORMERS TO GROW IN THEIR CRAFT, GROW IN CONFIDENCE AND GAIN VALUABLE STAGE PRESENCE WHILE
       CONNECTING THEM TO THE BEST AGENCIES IN THE NATION FOR POSSIBLE REPRESENTATION..

Q:  MY CHILD IS TOO YOUNG TO MEMORIZE THE SCRIPT, WHAT SHOULD THEY DO?
A:  JUST BE PREPARED TO DO SOMETHING WITH THEM THAT SHOWS US THEIR PERSONALITY! MAYBE TELL A STORY OR SING A SONG.  CAN THEY MEMORIZE 1 LINE FROM THE COMMERCIAL SCRIPT?

Q:  I COULDN'T MAKE IT TO MY AUDITION, WHAT DO I DO?
A:   CHECK AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY ADDITIONAL AUDITIONS IN YOUR AREA. IF THERE IS, REGISTER FOR THE AUDITION YOU ARE ABLE TO ATTEND.  IF THERE ISN'T, UNFORTUNATELY YOU WILL JUST HAVE
