NHMC and Walt Disney Television have had a longstanding partnership. Every year, NHMC Showcase Alumni are given the opportunity to participate in the ABC Casting Workshops where they work with ABC Casting Directors directly to audition and receive feedback. Our actors also have the chance to ask questions and gain helpful insight into the world of casting.
On May 5, 2020, 10 actors participated in the ABC Casting Workshop virtually.
About The ABC Casting Project:
ABC’s highly coveted Casting Project identifies/develops culturally and ethnically diverse talent and actors with disabilities by hosting a talent showcase each year in New York and Los Angeles. Selected participants perform live, one-act vignettes for casting directors, talent agents, managers and other industry professionals. Actors selected to participate in the Casting Project work with veteran directors for an intensive, two- to three-week rehearsal process in preparation for the East Coast or West Coast showcases.
Each showcase spotlights actors performing one-act vignettes for invited casting directors, talent agents, managers and other industry professionals. Selected participants will be assigned an executive from the Casting Department who will act as their mentor for one year. Additionally, participants will have access to various ABC and ABC Studios executives. Various workshops also will be scheduled throughout the year for the actors to further hone their craft.
