Rochelle Marie Arsenault looks like the stereotypical girl next door. This blonde-haired, blue-eyed 10-year-old loves cats, reading comics, and playing with her friends. 
She was also just invited to the International Performing Arts Academy’s prestigious Hollywood Showcase in Los Angeles next May.
Elk Grove native and pre-teen, Rochelle Marie Arsenault, 

beat out hundreds of new, young talent for a 
chance to attend the International Performing 
Arts Academy’s Hollywood Showcase in May, 2016.
The Hollywood Showcase is a four day event held at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, where new young actors, models and singers audition for industry agents, producers and casting directors. Rochelle will have her hair styled and makeup done by some of the biggest names in the industry. A number of Showcase participants have gone on to become big names.
“This is the real deal,” her father, Mark Arsenault said. “Rochelle is one of less than 150 new talents from across the country who’s been invited to the Showcase. We’re very proud of her and the choices she’s made that led to this.”
When asked why she wants to pursue an acting career she said, “I want to earn money to start a cat sanctuary. I want to help as many hurt and homeless cats as I can. Big cats, too, like lions and cheetahs and panthers.”
Going to the Hollywood Showcase involves some expenses, as well. The cost to send the young budding actress and her parents to Los Angeles for the four day event isn’t cheap. Her family is committed to accompanying her to the event. To help her raise money to offset the family’s expenses, however, her family started a fund-raising campaign on IndieGoGo (visit the fundraiser page at http://igg.me/at/ItsMeRochelleMarie).
The family is actively seeking friends, family members and even local businesses to sponsor Rochelle’s trip to Hollywood. Perks being offered include a free copy of Rochelle’s first book, “Lonnie’s Lemonade,” an autographed 8×10 photo, up to and including having Rochelle in a commercial for businesses willing to sponsor her.
