Check Out This Awesome Workshop Opportunity!

Hello Everyone! Toni and I are coming in for our annual Houston Workshop and this year we invited Ryan Glorioso to join us. We are thrilled to have him and excited about the new workshop format. Ryan shares our heart for actors and loves to bring Texas actors to Louisiana on his projects. Ryan is currently casting Dog Fight (w/Will Farrell and Zach Galifianakis) and Brock/Allen is currently casting A Birder's Guide to Everything (w/Bryan Cranston and Ben Kinglsey). Please share this opportunity with your actors. I have attached the same information in pdf format and some photos of all of us if you would like to use them.

Each Casting Director will give re-direction and feedback and then the actor will have a chance to do a second take. All work will be on-camera and it will be emailed or uploaded to them after the workshop. Also, each Casting Director will hand actors hand written notes at the end of the workshop. The last 30 minutes will be a Q &A session and all parents are welcome to attend.


Ryan Glorioso, CSA: After graduating with a BA in Theatre from Louisiana’s Northwestern State University in 1996, Ryan relocated to Los Angeles where he worked as an actor for 8 years. Working as an actor led Ryan to his future in casting. “My experiences in Los Angeles gave me a broad understanding of the acting profession. I understand what an actor goes through because I was there myself for years.” Some projects cast by Glorioso Casting include; Straight A’s, So Undercover, Playing The Field, Leatherface 3D, Lay The Favorite, Freelancers, Fire With Fire, The Expendables, Butter, Super, Straw Dogs, Leaves of Grass and Wonderful World.
