FL - BST #9
Original Backstage Hollywood Tour is run very efficiently by Amy Allen Karr and Bob Luke. Their combined experience and
love of the field is quite noticeable and appreciated. They are totally professional every step of the way. It
was a great learning experience not only for my daughter Tabitha but also for me as a mother who is supporting an actor. They
both are very concerned with helping each actor individually to meet the actor’s goals and ambitions. Amy’s
exposes the actors to agents and managers that they would not get to meet on a normal basis. She goes out of her way
to make everyone happy and successful. The people on Amy’s staff are also very professional and a delight to work
with. We would go again and again and again and highly recommend this tour to others." Laurie,
SC - BST #9
has been one of the best experiences of my life." Tabitha, SC - BST #9
"I thoroughly enjoyed the intimacy
the tour allowed the actors and their families. At the actor’s forum we were able to ask as many questions as we wanted
to without worrying about whether we were eating into another actor’s time or not. During every other part of the tour
I felt as though my needs were always met due to the small size of the group—be it rehearsals or tours of the studios,
etc. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour—it was the best trip I have ever taken. The people I met I intend to keep in contact
with for a long time (not just the agents)!!!" Kyle, PA - BST #9
