Seniors in Los Angeles
The senior performance majors stand below the Hollywood sign in Griffith Park. The Los Angeles showcase was a huge success with the actors spending several days working with industry professionals in intense workshops. One day was dedicated to getting to know the city and the seniors made the most of it.
