Every April, OCSA produces an Actors Industry Showcase, which features 12 to 18 of our talented students ranging from grades 7 through 12 from any conservatory. This virtual showcase is professionally shot and edited to be shared with an audience of Los Angeles talent agents, casting directors, and managers.
Scores of high-level industry professionals participate annually, including representatives from CBS, NBC, Sony Pictures, CW Television, Warner Bros, Disney, Abrams Artists Agency, Osbrink, and several other boutique agencies. The intent is to connect the students with industry professionals who can help facilitate the next step in their careers.
The cast will be selected exclusively by casting director and OCSA alumnus, Rick Messina (MT, ‘95), and the show will be directed by actor and guest artist, Michael Baker. Auditions will take place on Saturday, October 22 with callbacks held Saturday, November 5. The final cast list will be announced by mid-November. Rehearsals begin in January on Saturdays (two per month). The showcase shoot takes place during the last week of April.
