Providing essential learning and educational content for both aspiring and professional actors has been one of Casting Workbook’s core objectives. Beginning in October 2021, Casting Workbook Pro members will be able to attend a free virtual acting class or workshop experience from one of the top listed schools each month, and access previous months’ classes as part of their membership. The selection process was thorough and comprehensive - schools were selected based on an extensive review of their curriculum information, public ratings & surveys, media analysis and private industry-expert consultation.


“For 15 years, Casting Workbook’s mandate has been to create a convergence between education and industry. Working with top acting schools and universities, we provide industry education as well as hosting graduating class showcases to talent agents and casting directors.
