Acting can be a lonely, isolating career and often it feels like there's no one to turn to for help and guidance.

Workshops with Casting Directors are educational and should not be considered a job interview or audition. Attending workshops is not a way to obtain employment as an actor. The presence of a Casting Director is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment. Contact with a Casting Director at a workshop rarely results in any further contact with that Casting Director or any company affiliated with that Casting Director.
