Holly Powell is an Emmy Award-winning casting director who, in her twenty-three years of experience, has seen the casting world from three different points of view: As an independent casting director, as Senior VP of Casting for a Studio, and as a  Director of Casting for a Network. From this unique perspective, she formed Holly Powell Studios: An Audition Studio for Actors, with her goal to demystify the audition process for actors.  Ms. Powell’s book, The Audition Bible, has become the industry standard.

This workshop is open to all performers age 13 and over, and will include lunch and refreshments.  A donation of $10 would be greatly appreciated.

Space is limited, so don’t delay to RSVP to, including your name, age, and phone number.
