The Casting Network is for professional actors only. We do not agent, manage, commission, procure or attempt to procure work for actors. In keeping with state codes, THE CASTING NETWORK conducts entirely optional workshops with solely educational intent. Our workshops are not job interviews or auditions, and the presence of an industry professional (including but not limited to: a producer, a director, or a casting director, an associate, or representative) is neither a promise or guarantee of employment or an audition. Contact with an industry professional solely through a workshop in and of itself does not result in a contract with the guest or the production company they represent. Workshops and Showcases are not auditions for employment or for obtaining a talent agent or talent manager. Labor code: 1703.1(b).

Regarding members of CSA who teach: "A workshop is a learning experience. It is not an audition or employment opportunity. When the workshop is over, the casting director/casting associate/casting assistant (whichever is applicable) teaching this workshop will not be taking home nor be given access to your headshot, resume or any other of your promotional materials" Please visit www.castingsociety.comto view the CSA's guidelines for their members for educational workshops.

The Casting Network was started in 1989, by talented actors, for talented actors. We seek to give actors the opportunity to train and network with industry professionals. It truly is a supportive, creative environment that is known for its amazing talent and respect for fellow actors. You're always welcome to call for last minute commercial or theatrical coaching and/or with your requests to have specific guests (including agents, managers, directors and of course, casting directors/associates/assistants). And of course, we will always keep our prices as low as possible.

We are best known for our "Semi-Cold Reading" Workshops. The format of these workshops changes depending on the guest's preferences. Many CD's prefer that you pick your own scene in advance of the class, and prepare to read with them one-on-one. Please see our Calendar for each workshop format.

Our visiting guests cast some of the hottest projects in TV and Film.

Every month, we offer our popular "Multiple Agent Showcase" and our "Multiple Casting Director Showcase". Both events feature a panel of industry guests for you to perform your prepared scenes and monologues, and receive valuable feedback.

Thank you for making The Casting Network your first choice for casting workshops.

We are extremely proud of our stellar reputation in the industry, which we owe to our wonderfully talented actors. Our guests regularly thank us for bringing them unique, outstanding talent to work with:
