On Wedensday, December 19th, 2009 Graduate, Nekita Dolese, took time out of her busy schedule as a Casting agent to come and speak with Mrs. Mateyka's SATB Choir class. 

 Nekita attended NYU after graduating from West Essex High School and tried her hand at a few different internships and jobs before finding her niche as a casting director.  Nekita loves her job.  She was able to give students great insight as to how to plan their college courses and internships to forward their careers.  Her brother, student Frankie Dolese, also spoke to the class about working as an extra on several projects, including" The Greatest Showman". Frankie gave students his perspective on the value of being cast as an extra in a movie and the opportunities that provides.  Both Frankie and Nekita stressed the well-rounded perspective you get working as an extra because you get the experience of working with the costume department, make-up department and all of the behind the scenes experiences.
