Holly C.

I loved the Bridge Program. It’s a true introduction to the real world of auditioning after having been in school. Everyone I met is casting current TV, Film, and Theater, and constantly looking for talent. I have gone in multiple times for most of the industry instructors I worked with.

I co-star in a new NETWORK PILOT this Fall. I also shot a web series with a fantastic writer/producer I met!

Bridge Program FAQs

I just graduated from a BFA program this past year. Am I eligible to participate in the Bridge Program?

Yes, the Bridge Program is for graduates from BFA, MFA, and other Conservatory Style Programs who have graduated within the last three years.

Do I need to take off from work in order to participate in the Bridge Program?

Yes, because the Bridge Program is condensed into two to three weeks, we recommend that participants call off from work on all of the scheduled days of the program. Often we will schedule back to back events that last from the morning to the evening.

What should I wear to the Bridge Program?

Dress as you would for an on-camera audition. We always suggest that actors subtly suggest the part for which they are reading. Our backdrops are sky blue, so please plan accordingly when choosing clothes.

Are we given meal breaks?

Yes, you are given short meal breaks and we often recommend that participants leave food in our refrigerator in case breaks are limited.
