Meet Ryder! http://southcoastmanagementgroup.com/index.php/talent/video/8-talent/75-rydermaldonado-bio
My name is Ryder Maldonado; I am 12 years old but because of my height I get mistaken for older. I was born in San Antonio, Texas but believe that I should have been born in Hollywood. I am no stranger to the camera since I have been photographed, videotaped, and even painted “don’t’ ask” since birth. I am an honor student; I play basketball and am on the middle school track team. I’ve had the opportunity to play the Star Spangled Banner on the trumpet for a San Antonio Spurs game. I have been playing piano since I was 5 years old and am currently considered as an Intermediate/Advanced student.
My parents always had me singing, dancing, or playing the piano for my family. I never really thought of pursuing it professionally until last summer when I visited Universal Studios in California and loved it! I have always loved movies especially comedy and action adventure films. I watched them repeatedly until I memorized the scenes and words. When I had the chance to see how movies were made I got really excited to pursue acting along with music. I enrolled with Performing Arts San Antonio to help me get started with my new vision to become an actor. Besides continuing with P.A.S.A I look forward to the next school year because I signed up for Theater I class and can’t wait to hit the stage!
Emma Merryman was born in Victoria, Texas in July of 2007. Bubbly and spunky, she has never met a stranger. From the time she could walk, Emma was singing and dancing to anyone who would listen. She loves all genres of music from classical to rock. So, ballet lessons seemed like a good start. Acting lessons came next, as she begged to participate in her brother’s acting class. From then on, at home, she acted out the Barney videos she loves and the animated teen girl fighters she watched on TV. Emma is very comfortable in front of the camera, still or moving, and won’t hesitate to ask a stranger to record her or snap a photograph. Even at her young age, Emma has surprised her family with the confidence she bestows on stage, as well as her knack for taking direction well. She is full of energy and excitement to learn new things and perform.

Have you met Lindsay Ewell?
My name is Lindsay Ewell, and I’m 16 years old. I’ve loved the theatre my whole life, ever since I saw my first Broadway show (the 2002 revival of Into The Woods). I’ve been captivated by it ever since. I love to portray quirky characters, and character voices are one of my favorite challenges. I love singing more than anything, and I’m almost always humming or singing a song from a musical.
I am extremely dedicated, and I work very hard in whatever I do whether it is on-stage or in front of the camera. I love how the entertainment industry is always changing and I want to be challenged by roles that force me to think deeply and stretch my talent and abilities. I am always open to direction and guidance and am completely dedicated to losing myself in the character, which increases my stage presence. I am completely and totally dedicated to this business and can’t wait to explore new opportunities.

Want to know more about Emily Morgan?
Emily Morgan’s Bio
Emily Morgan Edwards was born in Phoenix, Arizona, on one of the hottest days of the summer: July 10, 2000 and hasn’t cooled off yet! She’s determined to find a way to speak to the world and make people laugh.
At a very early age, Emily started dancing, singing, and acting, running around the house acting out her favorite movie character in shows for the camera. Once she could walk she wanted to take the stage, and it all began. She’s been taking acting classes and performing on stage for 6 years now. She does her own costumes and makeup and loves to make people laugh. She’d also like to be a singer/songwriter and has already written a few of her own songs on guitar.
Emily’s dream is to perform on Saturday Night Live or The Simpsons, where she can put her incredible accents to work! She uses her knowledge of politics, pop culture, and reality TV to bring her stand-up comedy to life (which is one of the reasons she likes performing to adults more than younger kids).
Not only is Emily devoted to performing stand-up comedy; she follows politics and is a remarkable meteorologist. (Anyone who knows her knows she’s a little obsessed with stars, go figure.) Not only does she predict real storms, she is planning for a honeymoon chasing tornados.
Emily hopes to write a novel someday while traveling the world. She is a straight-A student and loves to participate in drama classes at school.

Want to know more about Madison Tinder?
Madison Tinder’s Bio
Hi, my name is Madison Tinder and I’m 17 years old. My passions are Acting for Stage and Film, Musical Theatre and Dance. Sometimes my life feels like a musical. When I don’t know what to say I usually sing it…something everyone seems to agree, I do very well.
Even though I’m young I have an exceptional singing voice and a maturity in performance beyond my years. My emotional and physical freedom in my work allows me to do both drama and comedy. I especially love learning physical comedy and stage action/combat. One of the best things about being in a production (besides the pay) is the friendships that develop through the rehearsal process and performances. I take direction really well and I treat my colleagues with respect which makes me pretty easy to work with. Doing the research necessary to develop a character and having the commitment to the emotional and physical demands necessary to make the character come alive is something I feel strongly about. Acting, singing and dancing let me experience a sense of security on the stage that makes me feel truly at home. I will always be the person that gives 110% when it comes to the things I love and I am fully dedicated to pursuing the industry and developing my talents through hard work and new experiences.
