Showcase2018 WarmupsWe warmly invite Directors, Artistic Directors, Producers, Casting Directors, Agents (EIC signed or TAMAC members), and other Industry Professionals to join us for our 25th 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.)

There will still be the traditional hardcopy school kits available at the event for those who want them. We will also be including full running orders from each school with a listing of the students’ performance piece and headshot thumbnails in order of presentation.

Any feedback or questions can be directed to
