My very first showcase was with NYCastings. I auditioned in front of five agents and afterwards, received so much information on the business as well as critical feedback on my performance. After some follow-up emails, I was invited to meet with Gina Manfredi of DDO and David McDermott of Jordan, Gill, and Dornbaum! A huge shoutout to Tina for the support, she’s amazing!

I had an amazing time! It was the best opportunity I’ve had to be able to showcase myself to these top agents in the industry. I will definitely be back for other upcoming showcases at The Studio at NYCastings! Thank you!

NYCastings brings in only the top people in our industry. They help to put the right people behind the table for actors to ask the tough questions. It’s nice to know that they want their actors to succeed. They strive to set us up for success with the proper industry professionals. I would not have met my current Manager if it were not for their platform that they provided. It is definitely worth the time and energy to take classes with NYCastings and stay up to date with whatever they may be offering. Thank you Aron and Tina for the great evening and for helping connect me to, what would become, my first representation in the city.”
