This intensive workshop is intended for those who are willing to give 200%. Register only if you’re entirely committed to your craft. Please come in as if you were going to an audition, or an interview. We expect you to be punctual, properly groomed and well rested. We DO NOT accept tardiness. Although memorization is not required, it would be professional if you were familiar with the sides given to you.
Andrew Aguilar Casting is bonded and licensed. A workshop is not a job interview or audition. The presence of a casting director, agent or manager is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment. The intent of the class is solely educational. Attending a workshop is not a way to obtain employment as an actor. Such contact as you may have with a casting director, manager, agent, producer etc. at a workshop rarely results in any further contact with that casting director or any company affiliated with that casting director.
