Work together by working together.


The On the Zoom workshops provide us with the opportunity to work with casting directors, learn from their direction of workshop members, and build mutual familiarity.  That familiarity is the key to a mutually rewarding long-term collaboration.


Actors will gain insight and experience from the interaction that could take years to amass in through self tape submissions or one on one auditions.   


We will humanize and demystify the casting process, and get collaborating with our friends in casting.

The online version will allow you to observe ALL the work with Sharon. We can make it a private one-on-one setting for the actor and Sharon, and allow everyone else to audit in the background.


**If you prefer not to have your session with Sharon observed, we can make it completely private for you, just let us know ahead of time.

Actors will coach on either Friday or Saturday with Jeb, and everyone will work with Sharon on Sunday.  If you coach Friday, you are enthusiastically invited to audit Saturday and vice-versa, or you are free to take the day off and join us on Sunday with Sharon.

Day 1: Saturday, November 12th or Sunday November 13th, 10am-3pm ET

 Coach your audition live online with Jeb. The version of the audition leaves us wanting more from the character, going forward.  You’ll be paired with someone in the group and will read for one another in the coaching, as well as on Saturday with Sharon.

All coaching work is filmed and emailed to you overnight so you have the chance to review before you get one on one with Casting on Saturday.

Day 2:  Monday, November 14th 5pm-9pm

Work one on one, live online with Sharon Forrest.  You’ll take notes, adjust,  ask personal/career questions, and build your rep and rapport.

All participants will be able to watch all work with casting (unless the actor opts for private work which we will happily facilitate!)

Finally, we’ll wrap up with a group Q&A, discussing whatever questions we have in mind,
