CD Workshops – Part 3

There is a new wrinkle, which disproves what we have always said–that actors are rarely hired out of workshops. Now, some of the CDs are hiring to prove it’s worth taking the workshops. Everything we have said still applies. You are paying literally thousands of dollars over a period of a year to possibly get a guest star spot at the day rate.  Name actors don’t have to do this, so it’s only the less experienced or successful who are.

What can you do? Read this Facebook post from 2014.  Follow along with the problem and discuss it with us here.
