ABOUT AUDREY BROOKS

This is me!

     The entertainment industry has been a part of my life since the beginning.

I have had a very exciting international career thanks to all of the talented people I encountered along the way who guided and developed my talent.

Now it is my turn to help guide and develop those who are excited about a career in the entertainment industry.

I just want to do my thing, have some fun and be a part of my community influencers!

 

     I started with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts when I was 15, toured with several bands and companies,

was a Denver Nugget Dancer, and have worked on over 250 theatre productions.

Yes, over 250 individual stage productions, mostly musical theatre, as a dancer, singer, actor, choreographer, costumer, stage manager, assistant director, director, writer, and sometimes just a stage sweeper. There are no small parts!

 

Some shows I toured with that you will recognize are Grease, Cats, Chorus Line, Gypsy, Chicago, All That Jazz, Cabaret, Will Rogers Follies... Broadway is the pinnacle to a career but honestly, community theatre means more. 

     You may have been one of my students at UIW, Wayland Baptist University, West Texas University, Amarillo College, Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Seward County Community College, a variety of grade, middle and high schools in Colorado, Oklahoma, or Texas. Or perhaps at Dance World, my all-time favorite dance studio and company.

I salute Robyn Gayton, Jody Gayton, and Pam Behne 

     I transitioned from dance to the modeling industry accidentally - 

Diane Dick International Modeling Agency in Amarillo, TX booked me to do choreography for the IMTA convention in NY and LA. We won 10 consecutive competitions in a row and before I knew it I was living in Milan, Italy developing talent internationally and doing choreography for fashion shows.

That happened because Diane Dick gave me a first-class education in the modeling and fashion industry as a developer and booking agent. She also booked me all over the United States as a commercial and promotional model, show coordinator, MC, performer, makeup artist, hairstylist, wardrobe stylist, and photographer's assistant.

 

I taught professional modeling for adults and children, wrote several training manuals, went to cosmetology school to help open a salon at the agency, and was her Creative Director for 9 years. I loved my life.

 

     One day I was lent out to the film industry...8 features, several B films, shorts, and flops later I found myself in a completely new career. I worked as an actor, casting director, extras wrangler, location scout, location manager, script supervisor, unit production manager, hair, makeup, wardrobe, and general grunt production assistant until I ran out of non-union hours and was forced to quit the industry.

That's okay, it was time for a change. 

Austin & San Antonio, TX was exciting. I worked with several fashion designers, marketing & advertising agencies, production, television, and theatre companies, until an unfortunate car accident changed my life.

 

    The accident brought to light and progressed a brain disorder, Generalized Dystonia. It was initially caused by toxic poisoning at age 9. Among other things, it mostly causes a connective tissue disorder, sometimes it creates severe muscle spasms that look like seizures. I am now studying to become an advocate for Dystonia. Educating the medical industry is my goal because being misdiagnosed is the absolute worst life experience. 

     My plan for success is to create a group of creative and passionate leaders for Venue 415 and the many projects is holds.

The goal is to produce community variety shows, theatrical productions and creative promotional marketing events.

It takes a village to market a village! I am just the catalyst for this project, I hope you join me.
