Next Generation Showcase Schedule 2018

When: Sunday, January 14th & Monday, January 15th, 2018
Where: Miles Nadal JCC
Al Green Theatre
750 Spadina Avenue, Toronto

Showcase Networking Party 2017We warmly invite Directors, Artistic Directors, Producers, Casting Directors, Agents (EIC signed or TAMAC members), and other Industry Professionals to join us for our annual showcase of graduating student talent.

As in previous years, we will have electronic school kits hosted on Casting Workbook, which will be accessible on tablets, laptops, and smart phones before, during, and after the Showcase event (Wi-Fi is available in the venue).

In the days prior to the Showcase, all attending industry professionals will receive an email with links to each school’s page, containing the headshots and CVs of each performing student. (Having a Casting Workbook account is not required to view these links.)

As we are still transitioning to electronic kits, we will still have the traditional hardcopy school kits available at the event for those who want them. As part of our new hard-copy programs this year, we will be including full running orders from each school with a listing of the students’ performance pieces and headshot thumbnails in order of presentation.

Any feedback or questions can be directed to
