SEEN BY HUNDREDS OF AGENTS, MANAGERS, and CASTING DIRECTORS!
Our Annual Showcase will be held March 14 at 8:00 p.m. at the beautiful Horton Grand Theatre. This year’s theme “Scene stealers – Blockbuster hits from the 80s” will feature over 50 actors of all ages.
Acting Professionally’s Annual Multi-Media Showcase is the only one of its kind in the country, showcasing actors on screen and stage, giving student actors maximum exposure to industry professionals. Students are given the opportunity to participate in this state of the art showcase venue! Scenes are professionally shot, directed and edited, shown on a full size movie screen and, in addition, students perform live in the prestigious Horton Grand Theatre. These performances, with audiences exceeding 300, attract top area agents, casting directors, managers and independent film directors from Los Angeles, Orange, County, San Diego and Baja in search of new talent.
Up to 80% of showcase participants are contacted by agents, managers, casting directors and/or independent filmmakers. Industry response to this unique approach has been overwhelmingly positive, allowing potential agents, casting directors and managers to see how an actor appears on screen as well as in live performance.
“In my capacity as casting executive at 20th Century Fox, Vice President of Talent and Casting Mandalay Pictures and as an independent casting director for the pilots of Monk and Samantha Who, I have attended many actor showcases but Terry’s showcases are unique. These showcases reveal the ingenuity, dedication, and commitment Terry has for the work and her students,. These are the best-conceived actor showcases that I have encountered in over 20 years in the casting industry.” Jason Wood, CSA, Los Angeles
