A note from Paige Johnston Thomas:    

As a Casting Director, I am so excited about this first class in a series of upcoming Audition Classes!
I know the talent in this region knows how to act, but auditioning is another skill set altogether – a skill that needs to be honed and perfected. I am thrilled about this AUDITIONING FOR COMMERCIALS class, and I truly believe Tim is the instructor to help guide talent to better auditions, to stronger auditions, and to consistently great auditions.  I’ve seen the impact he has had on students, and I can’t wait to attend Week Five to watch our amazing talent.
