Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab, I Said VOWOL, VOWOL, VOWOL.

VOWOL proudly borrows (steals?) just a portion of Compost Productions latest stellar idea (details way below) for the upcoming "Wine Women & Sound" September series.

Gentlemen? Don't worry - we'll have some opportunities coming up soon for you too. But you might as well jump down to the Margaritas Mojitos and Mics below.

(except of course for Roy and the engineer)

You and no more than 7 other female voice talents
4 stellar female VO coaches / casting director / agent / producer folk
a glass or two of wine
Hollywood Thursdays in September

We'll network and Q&A for a bit then dive into the booth for some play. Why not?

In addition to walking away with top quality studio recordings of your workouts, you'll be able to talk and learn from some of the best women in the VO business.

Guests (pending confirmation) include:
Casting Director Mary Lynn Wissner
An LA-based VO agent
VO coach to the stars and working VO talent Mari Weiss
Debi Derryberry (The voice of Jimmy Neutron among others)

The series begins Thursday evenings Sept 10 and runs through the next few Thursdays, ending October 1st. (Sept 10, 17, 24, October 1st)

The cost for this series is $399.

This is a very unique and intimate experience. We've had consistently positive requests for these brilliant VO women, and it's exciting to share in their knowledge and talent. OMG Ladies only VOWOL!

(OH, and if you pay for Bill's August 26th Margaritas, Mojitos, and Microphones series, the cost for Wine, Women, and Sound drops to $249.)

Price for Wine Women & Sound by itself: $399

Price for Margaritas, Mojitos and Microphone AND Wine Women and Sound: $150 plus $249 = $399. Yep.
