Ongoing Events

SAG-AFTRA members have created the Script to Screen Team to support the creative film throughout south Texas. Each month, SAG-AFTRA members read a professional film script before a live audience to industry pros, performers and potential investors. This one-time read connects the performers with other members of the film community and helps the screenwriters hone their material. Script to Screen reads now happen in both Houston and Austin. To find out the location of the next read, or to become a part of the team, contact Trish Avery at or call (214) 363-8300.


The Austin Actors Conservatory is dedicated to providing unique and relevant education workshops, seminars, readings and creative opportunities in Austin. Our mission is to provide professional training and industry networking opportunities that will raise the level of professional talent, create homegrown industry opportunity and bring more business to members.

The Houston Local Council meets the second Friday of every month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Members are invited to attend and participate in committee planning. However, members must RSVP to Trish Avery at or call (214) 363-8300 to attend.
