Membership Fee: ZERO!

And here's what's included with that!

1. Your own personal consultant to help you choose the right casting director workshop for you.

Need help figuring out which headshots to use? Don't know which casting directors are right for you to meet? Contact your consultant for any industry advice. They know what's what and who's who in this business. They are here specifically to help guide you in the right direction.   And there's no extra charge... They're free with purchase :) You just pay for the workshops you take.

2. We've got free, secure underground parking!  Who else has that?  Um... no one. So that's cool.

3. The majority of our workshops are intensives, where you're getting in front of the same casting director for multiple weeks in a row! 

Here at Act Now it's really about building relationships with our industry guests. Who's going to remember you in 3 years?  Probably no one when you're meeting them once for a 5 minute cold read. 

So give us a call and we’ll help you figure out if we are the right company for you!
