"Kids in the Biz: A Hollywood Handbook for Parents" by Troy Rutter AHS 1992

Troy Rutter, AHS 1992, has recently published a how-to book on getting your son or daughter into the TV/Film industry called  "Kids in the Biz: A Hollywood Handbook for Parents."  Troy spent seven years in California working for Warner Bros., Universal Studios and CBS doing everything from designing and maintaining the web sites for "Babylon 5," "The West Wing," "Rosie O'Donnell," "Friends," and more - to being a writer on the game show "Pictionary" starring Alan Thicke.  In 1998, he appeared three times on the TV show "7th Heaven," which allowed him the opportunity to join the Screen Actors Guild. Troy has since relocated back to Ames and can be seen as one of the lead characters in the musical "The Fantasticks" showing at the ACTORS studio in September.  It is directed by Amanda Lloyd Julson, another Ames High Graduate and features several other alumni as well.

Troy has placed a copy of the book at the Ames Public Library for checkout, and it is available at all the regular online bookstores and for order at your local store.
