If you're not on set, you should be in class and networking.
All information is current as of when the Casting Director is booked for the workshop. We are not responsible for casting directors changing offices/projects! All of our guests are scheduled in advance. If there are changes to their schedules or the shows they work on, we cannot be held responsible- this is truly part of the business. We will try to get you as much information as quickly as we can if there are any changes. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause! Visa, MC, Discover and AMEX are accepted via PayPal, our payment processor. All individual class payments and discount pack sales are final. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. You may, however, gift your funds to another actor. All deposited funds must be used from one year of the purchase date. AFTER ONE YEAR FROM THE PURCHASE DATE, UNUSED CREDITS ARE FORFEITED, and the actor's profile is deactivated. A reactivation fee of $25 will be assessed to reactivate the membership, but this does not return forfeited funds to the actor's bank. Membership is free, however if your account goes unused for a period of one year there is a $25 reactivation fee. All sessions start promptly. Actors must sign in 15 minutes prior to the workshop/one-on-one/showcase time. If you are running late you MUST call the office at 818-980-6980 and inform the monitor to keep your spot, or your spot might be given away 5 minutes before the class begins. Being late without notice forfeits space & workshop fee! (Before you leave to attend any workshop it's advisable to check your email to see if the class start time has changed or has been unexpectedly canceled).
Cancellation Policy: All workshops require a minimum of 48 hrs cancellation notice from the start time of the session, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, to receive credit back into your account. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE. To cancel, go into your Home Base, locate the name of the workshop you want to cancel, and click the "X" at the end of the name. Each workshop format is different; it is your responsibility to know by reading the information for each workshop. For Agent Night and CD Talent Showcase - we guarantee a minimum of 3 guests attending; we often will have 4 - 6 attending. We reserve the right to replace any guest in the event that a guest cancels. NO REFUNDS ARE ISSUED IN THE EVENT OF A GUEST CANCELLATION. NEVER CALL any of our guests prior to their workshop appearance. TCN reserves the right to refuse service and/or terminate membership to any person who disrupts workshops or mistreats guest, fellow actors & staff.
Wait List Policy: when a class is sold out, actors who RSVP online are put on the wait list for that class instead of on the roster. As spaces become available, paid wait listed actors will automatically be put into the class in the order in which they are wait listed. Actors are notified via email up to one hour before scheduled class time, and will be charged the full workshop fee once they are bumped in. Members are urged to check their email the day of the class to see if they have been automatically bumped in. Actors are urged to remove themselves from the wait list in accordance with the cancellation policy if they cannot attend, to prevent being inadvertently charged for a class for which they are no longer available.
Standby Policy: the standby list is different from the wait list. Standbys can arrive in person up to one hour before class and place themselves (and only themselves) on the standby list. Five minutes before class, in the event of no-shows, standbys paying cash at the door are accepted to fill the vacant spots in the order in which they arrived. A wait listed actor who is not accepted into the class online may still try to come to the class in person as a standby by signing up on the standby list. Having previously been on the wait list does not take precedence over the standby list - it is first-come- first-served at the door.
