CASTING DIRECTORS TEACH KILLER CLASSES AT THE ACTORSITE!

1. They provide valuable inside information to parents and
young actors.
2. Young actors perform representative material under the
watchful eye of industry professions.
3. Many times they provide written feedback that parents can
take to their acting coach for future improvement.

It’s always a WIN – WIN at the Actorsite! NICE!

All the best,
