Industry day if for young actors ages 8 to Legal 18. Three industry members, Casting Directors, Agents and Managers, are invited to attend a class in which the kids perform a scene and a commercial or monologue. Past Industry members include Bobby Ball agency, CESD, Abrams Artists, Buchwald Talent Agency, Stein Management, Ronna Kress Casting, Krisha Bullock, Stuart Stone Casting, among others.
The intention of the day is for the kids to practice auditioning and speaking with Industry professionals. The goals are that they learn how they can improve their audition skills and to practice talking with industry members. Industry Members are asked to give direct feedback and suggestions on what they need to do to go to the next level.
Any class in which an Industry Professional such as, Casting Director, Manager, Agent, Producer, Director, has been invited for educational purposes only and by no means is it an audition for work. This is not a job interview. The presence of industry members is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment. The intent of the class is solely educational.

Audition and Interview Require
Watching the contortionists at the Cirque du Soleil last night, I realized that they make acrobatics look so easy that I forget how impossibly hard it is. I took for granted the strength, the flexibility, the practice, and courage it takes to achieve those feats.
Acting is the same. Great actors make acting seem easy. But I see a lot of actors who take the craft of acting for granted. They think “I can do that” and they audition, go to casting workshops, do showcases, without having a teacher and being in a regular class. By the way, they are the same actors complaining that they’re not booking.
Great acting requires consistent practice, a good coach and personal courage to build the emotional strength and emotional flexibility required to perform great roles. Respect your craft. Be in class – practice.
