What if I’m running late or need to leave early?

Please email us at workshops@actorscomedystudio.com and we will let our guest know.  Some CDs do not allow late arrivals to class. Others end with Q&A and you may miss vital information by leaving early. We recommend you make attending the workshop in its entirety your priority once you book.

What scenes can I use?

PLEASE NOTE: Please read the workshop details carefully to ensure you prepare the correct sides.

If the workshop offers the option to bring in your own material – this is only permissible if the show/film has ALREADY aired or never will.  You can not bring in scenes from current auditions. To get your own sides checked and approved, please email them to: workshops@actorscomedystudio.com .  Per CSA guidelines, workshop scenes must have previously aired. Please make sure to list the Film/TV show, episode # and your character’s name in the email to us.

Limit your scene selection to 3 minutes.

You also have access to our studio’s Workshop Sides and do not need to have any of these scenes pre-approved.

You can also use scenes from Gunnar’s scene books for actors!

What is your standard class curriculum?

Exact plans may vary with each guest. Our Industry workshops all provide performance opportunity. We book industry professionals such as casting directors, writers, producers, agents and managers.

What Is The Cancellation/Refund Policy?

It is in your interest to let us know if you can’t make it to your workshop so we can let the guest know. Please inform us ASAP if you won’t be in attendance. We do not offer refunds or credits for our special industry guest workshops. In the event our guest cancels for any reason, your full payment will be immediately refunded.

Can I switch classes once I’ve made a purchase?

No.

Where can I view the CSA Workshop Guidelines?

We are committed to following all of the CSA Guidelines for workshops. We are bonded with the City of Los Angeles. Our workshops are learning experiences, not auditions or employment opportunities.  When the workshop is over, the casting director/casting associate/casting assistant (whichever is applicable) teaching said workshop will not be taking home nor be given access to your headshot, resume, or any other of your promotional materials.
