“I cannot believe how much I learned and how many important people I met in such a short period of time!  I walked away with a wealth of knowledge that will forever change my career.   I cannot recommend the experience enough!”
-student, Shorter University

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. Moving to the city in pursuit of a career in acting is daunting to say the least! Meeting and speaking with you and all of the agents has been incredibly beneficial.  I and the rest of my class really feel like we now have a foot to stand on!”
-student, West Virginia University 

“Showcase in NYC has changed my career. Since I graduated and moved to New York, I have auditioned multiple times for people I made connections with through showcase. During my showcase I had a workshop with a major Casting Director. Six months later, I auditioned at an open call, got a callback, and the Casting Director remembered me and took the time to have a personal conversation outside of the audition room in addition to the callback! I cannot recommend NYC Showcase enough to any college program looking for success for their students.” 
-Student, Oakland University 

“Thank you for the amazing experience you provided for our students this week.  The entire process was so organized, so professional, and so useful.  The students were so happy with the workshops and the tons of feedback and work that they got to experience over those 48 hours. Thank you for all of the time you spent with them – they were absolutely glowing last night and feel so excited to start this next part of their career/education.”
