Stay in the Loop for casting calls and acting class updates

Success! You're in the Loop.

Risk and Resolutions

Getting out the kinks and making plans!

Maybe you haven't been booking, maybe you haven't been getting auditions, maybe you just feel stuck.  This 2 hour workshop offered to alumni of the Brooke and Mary Commercial Intensive only is just the ticket to start the new year off right.  We will start with introductions and seeing what has been happening (or not happening) this past year.  Then we will work on 2 cold pieces of copy.  We'll wrap up by chatting it out and setting some goals.  Wine and snacks served.  10 ppl max.

And....tis the season for giving.  Brooke and Mary will host (and cover the cost of) a yankee swap before we depart.  Woot woot.
