This workshop is an intensive experience designed to help actors land roles. Ms. Orenstein will share her extensive knowledge of the casting process and give actors her professional assessment of their headshots, offering specific critiques on how best to market themselves. She will also do one-on-one conversations with actors to help them identify the kinds of roles best suited to them.
