This workshop offers an actor the unique chance to be coached by an experienced casting director and an acting coach at the same time. This seldom, if ever, happens in LA or NYC!  Actors will learn what is needed to get a call back and also how to create exciting, original and personal work.

Richard and Erica will work together and with the actors to create the conditions to achieve a successful reading.  The class will work outside in and inside out simultaneously, with both hands-on work and discussion.  The session will be intensive – please come prepared to work!

***THIS CLASS IS NOT AN AUDITION; it is for instructional/educational purposes only***  

We will not be accepting materials for submission (you may bring them for the purposes of discussion and review, but not for any purpose of employment)
