In developing The Performing Option, it has been my objective to go beyond the problems of the classroom actor and provide a forum for the professional. Pre-screening has always been my policy and when a professional meets a professional in a mutually supported environment success is very apt to be the result.

We do not promise jobs. We do promise the opportunity to study with working professionals.

“We provide education with Industry insiders.”

“If you are not being seen by the industry this is a very expensive hobby.”

All Classes are taught by currently employed Casting Directors.

All six week classes, camps, and weekend events end in a showcase for agents and managers.
