Introducing Actor Therapy’s Casting Director and Agent Workshop. This one-of-a-kind program combines personal mentorship, casting director face time, and an agent showcase all in one.
During the program, students work through material in a safe space with an industry mentor who will fine-tune each student’s particular package. Then, over the next several weeks, students work with individual casting directors for feedback. Throughout the process, students communicate with their mentor about the critique they’ve received and fine-tune their work. After five casting director sessions, it culminates with an agent showcase, where students synthesize the comprehensive information they’ve received into their most effective showing yet.
(Students with agents may opt out of the showcase for a discount on their fee – see below!)
There are eight classes held over five weeks usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays (skipping some) from 6:30pm-8:30pm. For exact dates, times, and faculty of the next session, click here.
