In the spirit of continuing to make theater magic happen while everyone continues to quarantine and socially distance, casting office Stewart/Whitley has created a virtual masterclass called CONNECTING CREATIVITY: A Virtual Casting Masterclass. The class will kick off tomorrow, Thursday, April 23, with session one called "quarantunes." If selected to perform, 100% your registration fee (see below) will go to The Actors Fund.
Below is all the information regarding the virtual masterclass, which was posted on Stewart/Whitley's Instagram page. To learn more about Stewart/Whitley, including what projects they cast, audition information, and internship programs, visit their website. You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Join the casting office of Stewart/Whitley from quarantine as they take your questions while discussing the entertainment industry at large and how we all as professional artists are working remotely to put the pieces back together during these uncertain times. In addition to this live open forum, 6 actors will have the opportunity to read tv/film sides or monologues, or sing during the live virtual forum for immediate feedback from the casting team. Being able to present strong virtually online has never been more vital.
Space is limited. To apply for a spot in the forum and learn more please send your headshot/resume to connectingcreativitySW@gmail.com . If you would like to apply for one of the six spots to perform please also include your reel and what material you would want to share during the session. This performance opportunity is for educational opportunities only, and is NOT an audition.
We know that finances are tight for many artists during this time, but if able, we are suggesting a minimum of a $5 donation for participation in the forum, and a minimum of a $10 donation if you are selected to perform in the online work session. 100% of your donations will go to The Actors Fund. A vital organization at the heart of our community providing relief for so many artists during this crisis.
