Format: Actors will meet and audition for 5 commercial casting directors and 5 commercials agents. The industry will be split up into two rooms and each actor will audition in both rooms. Upon registration we will email you a link that contains a ton of great commercial copy to choose from and download or you may use your own. You may do the same copy in each room or do a different piece of copy in each room.

The agents and casting directors in each room will look over your head shot/resume and each panel will answer any quick questions you may have. Each casting director will fill out a comment sheet about you and we will give them to you when you are done with both rooms. One of our experienced staff members will be available to answer any questions you may have and for some quick coaching.

Note: Each actor will get about 3 minutes in each room. It is advised that you choose a commercial that is about 30 seconds in length.



The Green Room does not offer refunds however if you cancel a class or an event 7 days prior to the first session of the class or the event itself, you can receive a credit which may be applied to a future class or event.
