Please contact us via email ONLY.
Please do not phone or visit. 800 N. 2nd Street, Number 179 is ONLY our mailing address!
Please do not send MP3's electronically unless requested for a specific project! We do not answer questions about 'The Business' via e-mail or telephone.
We occasionally hold Open Calls for professional, working actors. Please Note: Open Call is now being held on an "Invitation Only" basis.
You MUST be submitted by your agent to attend open call. If you do not have an agent, please email us a copy of your resume and picture (small jpeg's ONLY - 250kb maximum) or a link to your online pictures and we will review them. Please do NOT embed pictures into Word documents or PDF's - we will delete them! Click here to send your picture and resume. If we are interested in seeing you, we will contact you.
If you have an agent and wish to attend Open Call, please contact them and ask them to set up an appointment for you. If you are not local to Philadelphia (ie southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington, DC, New York City) DO NOT send pictures and resumes unless requested.
We are neither agents nor managers and therefore do not guide careers nor give advice on 'The Business'. There are excellent books available on the business and technique of acting at bookstores such as Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com. Look particularly for 'How to Be A Working Actor,' by Marylynne Henry & Lynne Rodgers and Joe Mantegna.
Another great book is Michael Caine's, 'Acting In Film - An Actor's Take on Movie Making.'
We *do not* recommend agents, managers or photographers. We do not give classes or workshops at our facility, but recommend using local theatre schools (for people in the Philadelphia PA area), such as Walnut Street Theatre, The Wilma Theatre, People's Light and The Arden Theatre.
