UPDATE:  After a wonderful response from young actresses who are doing the showcase, Jessica is now seeking more boys ages 4 – 20 years for this great agent and manager industry showcase!

It’s often challenging for child performers to get in front of professional talent agents, managers and casting directors.  Fortunately, A Class Act NY’s upcoming May 18 industry showcase provides aspiring actors an opportunity to perform for top industry professionals.  Many of their students have been successfully scouted from these Showcases and now appear on Broadway, in films, TV shows and commercials.

Showcases and productions are by audition only. Email jessica@aclassactny.com for more information.

If you live well outside of the NY area (the midwest, the southern states or the west coast), she will accept video submissions. Actors in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Connecticut all must travel to the studio in NYC.
