Casting Director Workshops/Industry Showcases
6380 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048
The Actor’s Advantage is LA's Premier Studio for Casting Director Workshops and Industry Showcase's. Our goal is to make an actor’s journey more efficient by getting you directly in front of casting directors and agents. You will have the opportunity to show them your work as opposed to being another 8 X10 photo in a pile. We provide a safe environment for actors to re-create the audition process and learn to feel comfortable in making the most creative choices for that particular scene. It is this formula the makes us LA's #1 Casting Director Workshop!
When you come in for a workshop with us you choose a cold read or prepared material(unless otherwise stated). Each Casting Director will bring material for a cold read or you can bring in your own 2-3 min scene. If you do not have a scene you can choose from our extensive sides library.
Another main factor that separates us from other casting director workshops is that we have an exclusive private studio where all reads done in a private one on one setting with only you (a scene partner if the casting director has paired you up), and the guest in the room at the time of your read. Every actor will be given confidential feedback from each individual CD on their performance, stage presence, headshots and overall presentation.
We bring in LA’s top Casting Directors, Agents and Managers for showcases. We also provide workshops taught by LA’s top Industry Professionals.
Our showcases are designed for actors who want to get out there and work, and give them the opportunity to get in front of the right people.
Payment can be made from our secure "Add to Cart" link provided for you. When viewing your cart before checkout, please note that all products are listed in "mmddyy" format according to the date of the workshop.

Cold Read or Prepared Material....You choose!
When you come in for a workshop with us you choose a cold read or prepared material(unless otherwise stated). Each Casting Director will bring material for a cold read or you can bring in your own 2-3 min scene. If you bring in your own scene, you must bring is a highlighted stapled copy with your name on the top for our readers. If you do not have a scene you can choose from our extensive sides library.
-We can not say if CD's prefer cold or prepared reads. Each CD is different, we just like to give the option so our actors can be shown in the best possible light. This is a decision each actor must make prior to coming in for the workshop.
