It’s been a hectic, yet fun weekend. I had an awesome snow day yesterday with many of my friends, and today, I found out that I had gotten a lead role in the play that I auditioned for. (YAYYYYYY!)
Anyways, this is the second part of the “Sending Your Mail” posts. Basically, I just wanted to make sure you guys know how to format your envelopes and everything.
Most celebrities don’t release their home addresses to the general public, so when you’re writing to celebrities, you’ll be using their agency, or a “VV” address.
A via-venue (VV) address is an address where the celebrity is filming or acting for a certain period of time. For example, a Broadway show, or a movie set would be a via-venue address.
If you know the exact dates of when the person will be there, you can send the envelope on to the place earlier than when the celebrity will arrive there.
When formatting addresses for via-venues, you should write the show or film after the name of the person you’re writing to. Then, you should write the actual address of the place.
(*IMPORTANT*) If you know the exact dates of when the person will be there, you can send the envelope on to the place earlier than when the celebrity will arrive there. This will ensure that your envelope will be one of the first that the celebrity will see. All you need to do is write something along the lines of “Please hold this until ___’s performance on ___.”
Here’s an example:
“The Deathly Hallows”
c/o The Orpheum Theater
1234 Finder’s Drive
San Francisco, CA 94507
(please hold until Mr. Potter’s performances starting 5/13/17)
Bye for now, and best of luck as always,
