The Actors Arena
The Actors Arena provides dedicated, experienced professional actors a forum in which to hone and develop skills, facilitate substantive artistic exploration, and nourish the artistic spirit.
Through hands-on workshops, invited personal perspectives, and roundtable conversations, we create a space for dialogue and artistic growth in order to inspire, rejuvenate, and strengthen our D.C. theater community.
To RSVP for an event, or to be added to our mailing list, please email ActorsArena@arenastage.org.
Monday, April 15th (1:00 – 4:00 p.m.)
The Casting Director Relationship
Ways to make an excellent first impression, strut your valuable stuff, extricate yourself gracefully if need be, and relax when it doesn’t work out. Join Casting Directors Dan Pruksarnukul (Arena Stage), Nick Stimler (Fords Theatre), Daniel Neville-Rehbehn (Shakespeare Theatre Company), Danisha Crosby (Round House Theatre) and Naomi Robin (Theater J) for a frank, friendly discussion.
Unless otherwise noted, events take place in Arena’s Community Engagement classroom. Enter the Mead Center through the main entrance. Go through the main lobby, up the stairs to the right of Concessions, and through the glass doors on the right; the classroom will be on your left.
There is no charge to participate, but we ask each participant to contribute $1 toward a fund that can be used for refreshments, future workshops, etc.
