Play

Taking a chance on new talent when casting a play

Lucky DiceMost directors have faced this casting problem: the known quantity, an actor you know gives a good audition.  You’ve worked with him before and you trust him.  But a new face, someoone you don’t know, gives a better audition.  Who (and how) do you choose.  The Geeks talk about this common issue and explain how new actors can overcome being less-known during the audition.
