Free The Hamster is a show about career change, transition, reinvention, and dealing with the fear of leaping into the unknown. Have you hit a wall with your career? Are you asking yourself “Why am I doing what I’m doing?” Perhaps career reinvention is for you.

Harry Prichett: I’ve integrated my experiences as an actor, writer, improviser, and communicator to establish a career as a certified professional coach. Building on extensive research, and my own experience with reinvention, I have developed a four-stage program to help others launch meaningful and fulfilling careers. I use the listening skills I developed as an improviser and the creative problem-solving techniques I learned as a producer to work with a wide-range of individuals—surgeons, television executives, real estate brokers, entrepreneurs—who are looking for new opportunities. I partner with them to clarify their current career issues, identify their challenges and help them discover creative possibilities for the next chapter of their lives.
