Annie Chadwick, owner of Up-To-Date Theatricals and author of Showbiz Bookkeeper, offers one-on-one career consultations tailored to your specific career needs. Coming from a unique perspective of having the most comprehensive up-to-date database of industry contacts, information, personal working experience and client feedback, Annie can create an innovative, individualized step-by-step plan to achieve your career goals.

After receiving her Master's degree from Indiana University School of Music and moving to NYC, Annie realized that although well-trained, she knew very little about the business of pursing a performance career. Continuing to see this as a weak point in other talented performer's training, she created in 1988 Up-To-Date Theatricals - a comprehensive career consultation and theatrical information service for professionals working in the performing arts.

In addition to providing one-on-one career consultations and up-to-date theatrical information, she also developed a variety of workshops that give current trends and innovative techniques on the business of pursing a performance career. Current clients range from experienced professionals working on Broadway, in Feature Films, Primetime TV Series, Soaps, National Network Commercials to those new to the business.
