Yesterday March 26th, Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever, interviewed the 19 year old author, Henry Hodges, who wrote "How To Act Like a Kid," at the Drama Book Shop. The interview was followed by a Q&A with the audience followed by a book signing. BroadwayWorld was there for the special celebration and you can check out full photo coverage below!
Henry Hodges didn't get a promising start. Not only was he the littlest kid in class but his dyslexia made every day a struggle. He started out as a true rookie, with no connections in show business. But he had talent and determination and his family behind him. Together, they made smart decisions about his training and growing career. Most of all, Henry had the Always say yes! Attitude that transforms a talented kid into a real prO. Henry credits becoming a performer with saving his life. Today, he is successfully navigating the transition to young adult performer after a stellar career as a child actor, having appeared on Broadway and on tour in such hit show as Mary Poppins, Chitty Citty Bang Bang, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid-not to mention acting in Shakespeare, opera, Off-Broadway, and regional theater and as a voice actor in animated films.
In How To Act Like a Kid, Henry tells his inspiring story in his own words. Along the way he gives aspiring kid performers of any age smart, up-to-date, practical advice in every aspect of a young performer's career onstage and in radio, commercials TV, and movies: finding teachers and coachers; dealing with agents and managers; preparing for auditions, rehearsals, and performances; coping with criticism and competition; avoiding scam artists who prey on young talent; and succeeding in you schoolwork backstage. Plus, top pros who have helped Henry along his way offer candid advice on everything a young performer needs to know to start a career in show business.
This is not just a how-to book for young actors. It's also the story of a brilliant young actor coming of age. Henry Hodges is one of the most wonderfully creative actors I've ever worked with. I highly recommend this charming informative guide to anyone who is interested in a life in the theater. No one could give you better advice on the subject than Henry Hodges -Rebecca Luker, Tony Award-nominated star of Mary Poppinson Broadway
