Los Angeles: Tuesday 1st March
Today the Theatrica tour had their first of two days in Los Angeles before leaving for Melbourne. The performing arts focus of the trip shifted from the theatre of Broadway and Off Broadway in New York to film and television in Los Angeles.
First on the agenda today was a healthy breakfast, followed by a sightseeing tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Then we did the back lot tour of Universal Studios and finally five hours in the theme park to see what was on offer. After dinner Charles arranged two Australians living in Los Angeles to chat to us about the television industry here. Both guest speakers were from Melbourne – one now a TV casting director, the other started the first day of shooting on her own children’s TV show today.
