12/5 - 7:00PM - Arizona Actor's Showcase
If you've ever wanted to see what actors go through behind the closed doors of an audition or if you're a an actor who's wanted to get seen in front of hundreds of people including directors, filmmakers, casting directors and more - our Actors Showcase is just the place to get in on all of the action!
Contestants perform a prepared 2-5 minute piece ranging from dramatic to comedic to classical to highlight their talent, then they receive a re-direct from a special guest award-winning director to perform the piece a second time. The re-directs are often totally unexpected, totally creative and show a whole different range and ability of the actor. Here's the kick - it's all LIVE on stage in front of an audience and a panel of expert industry judges and the winners receive awards and public recognition.

Cody Goulder & Melody Knudson
