Participants in this two hour and a half hour class will perform prepared material for an experienced casting professional. See requirements below for prepared read instructions.
This is an opportunity for actors to perform for Kerry in a safe and intimate environment and receive specific feedback and/or re-direction. This sort of learning experience does not exist in the real world. You either book the audition or you don’t. You rarely have the benefit of any substantial feedback on your performance from a casting director of Kerry's caliber.
