Acting Program Scholarship Competition for Kids and Teens:
Meet Casting Directors and Other Industry Guests
Actors Connection recently announced upcoming scholarship auditions for ages 8-17 in Philadelphia. Each scholarship awarded will allow the student free admission into classes during programming in April, where they will have the opportunity to meet and work with casting directors, agents, managers and other top industry professionals.
Auditions will take place at the Hampton Inn Center City Hotel (1301 Race Street in Philadelphia) on Saturday, March 23rd from 1p-6p and are by appointment only. Students will be given commercials to read for the audition and will be judged on the following criteria: presence and energy, creative choices, adjustments to direction and how they handle copy. Interested applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.
In addition to these auditions, Actors Connection is holding an invited private school challenge. The private school with the highest average score during these auditions will be awarded a free in-school or after-school assembly.
Prior to the auditions, at 10am and 12pm, Actors Connection will hold two informational seminars also at the Hampton Inn Center City. Families interested in learning more about how to get their child or teen involved in Show Business can attend to learn more about how to break into the industry.
