the February monday night class
meet 4 top casting directors over the course of the month
Now's the time to get in the room and work with NYC's top CDs. The Monday Night Class is a powerhouse networking tool and an incredible educational opportunity for its attendees.
Dates: Mondays, February 12th, 19th, 26th, March 5th 2018
Location: AGR, 15 West 28th Street, 9th Floor, NYC 10001
$382 (Elevate Premium Member)
Limited to 16 students
Ages 13 and up
A free ELEVATE account is required to fully register.
CD's will view headshots and resumes while student is performing but each student must collect their headshot and resume after they have finished.
Some of the unique benefits of the class include:
- Small classes
- Hosted by senior AGR staff member Josh Hemphill
- An informative Q&A with each guest followed by each actor working one on one time in the studio with the guest CD and Jane Dashow (an amazing senior staff member at AGR) while the rest of the class watches on a monitor.
- A real opportunity to work with each guest CD in an audition setting, get to know their personal audition preferences, with all the benefits of an intimate, supportive class. The CDs get to see what you would be like in an audition scenario, how you take direction etc, but unlike in an audition, actors get detailed feedback and come away with crucial knowledge on how to nail their auditions and move forward. They are now on the radar of the guest CDs and begun establishing a working relationship.
- The ability to work with a highly skilled, professional reader/actor who is there to support you in your work.
- Actors are emailed an HD QuickTime video each week of their on-camera work.
Over the course of 4 weeks, actors get to work on camera with 4 major film & television casting directors PLUS Jane Dashow, an amazing senior staff member at The Actor's Green Room. Actors get to build relationships with the guest casting directors and work with them in their medium. Each class session begins with a Q&A with the guest casting director. Next, each actor will work one on one on camera with the guest casting director and Jane Dashow while the rest of the class watches via a television monitor. When in the room, actors will receive adjustments to tweak their performances and will learn what each of the guest casting directors look for in an audition. Actors are supported by an outstanding reader and are emailed their on camera work in the form of a QuickTime HD movie after each class.
With an ambience and camaraderie that can't be beat, The Monday Night Class provides the educational and networking opportunities that truly make a difference in an actor's career.

If you have to miss more than one class, you can only make up one of the missed sessions. We leave one spot per class session each week for a make up. We will do our best to accomodate your class choice and if the make up spot is already taken you may choose another. Please note that you may only make up a missed Green Room class session at another Monday Night Class session.
All of the casting directors that we invite to our classes are very busy industry professionals as well as human beings with life circumstances that may arise.
