Cast-a-thon 2017

Cast-a-thon 2017

27 February 2017

Monday 6 March will see the eagerly anticipated return of the Actors Centre's annual fundraising event Cast-a-thon, and this year it’s better than ever!

Cast-a-thon will give our members a fantastic opportunity to spend 10 minutes, one-on-one, with some of the UK's leading Casting Directors from theatre, TV and film who have generously donated their time and expertise to help you. This is your chance to get individual feedback and tailored advice about what you're doing right and what you're doing wrong whilst at the same time raising money for your Actors Centre.

So if you want to spend some quality time with Casting Directors who have worked on and with the likes of BBC, The Old Vic, West End shows, HBO series and the RSC then go no further.

Each session donation price is just £20 for you to spend 10 not-to-be-missed minutes discussing all things industry and your place in it.

Bookings are now open for a week until the event itself next Monday.

Click here to go to the bookings page.

Please be aware that direct approaches to the Casting Directors involved is not appropriate before the event and if this happens it may result in cancellation of your participation. 

Cast-a-thon is bookable via the our website ONLY.
