As part of a series of events focusing on casting opportunities for actors who have been historically overlooked in the entertainment industry, Casting Society of America (CSA) Diversity Committee will focus this month on performers with disabilities (PWDs). Performers will be given an opportunity to do a two-page prepared scene of the performers’ choice in front of a panel of CSA casting directors. Please note, the reading will be taped and the reading is NOT for a job opportunity.
