This takes her on a personal voyage, traveling alone through the forest, to the a farm by her house.

Here is the very first clip from CLOWN LAB!

Talent Scout Yves Sheriff and the Casting team ran a workshop last September under the direction of Michel Courtemanche for six clowns from Europe, the United States and Quebec!

This series of workshops, with the participation of Cirque du Soleil coaches, clowning students from the National Circus School and the Cracclown organization, ended with an evening at the Lion d’Or cabaret as part of the Journées de la culture!

Keep up-to-date with the other clips in the series that will be available for three consecutive days on our Facebook page from Monday March 11.

The Casting team is pleased to announce that it is now using a new one-of-a-kind contact and candidate management system! This system, called “BAAZ” contains more than 75,000 entries from across the globe.

BAAZ enables the Casting team to process applications more efficiently, and it also helps them to manage auditions and talent scouting events.

This “cloud” platform adds real value as it also encourages interaction, communication and follow-ups with candidates and with business partners. We would like to take this opportunity to remind those of you who are interested in a career with us that, in order to make communication easier, it is important to keep your personal file up-to-date.

And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank
We are happy to invite you to a Public Performance of the powerful, multi-media Holocaust drama And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank this Sunday, March 10th at 7pm. Tickets are only $8. 
About the Show

Written by James Still, and based on the book Eva’s Story by Eva Geiringer Schloss, And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank tells the captivating and heart-wrenching tales of the hidden children of the Holocaust. The play weaves the story of Anne Frank with those of Eva Geiringer and Ed Silverberg – two of her childhood friends. Eva’s story is one of hiding and eventual capture by the Nazis. Ed was able to run from the Nazis throughout the War.  


Though all three children had very different experiences during World War Two, they are connected by their stories of friendship, love, and the struggle for survival. During this multi-media production, Ed and Eva tell their stories through filmed interviews while actors portray them as children during the Holocaust, creating a moving experience that audiences treasure long after the performance. 


Hailed as being a production that “will stay with you for the rest of your life.” by The Indianapolis Star, we hope that you join us for this inspiring story of survival.

Actors have to memorize lines.  It’s part of our job.  Do you dread this task?  Are you mystified by the process and wish you knew a better way?  This workshop gives you specific tools that make memorizing fun and exciting.  You will improve your cold read skills, develop your acting instincts, and increase your confidence in auditions.


You will have a chance to put this technique into practice in this fast-paced 4-hour workshop.  You’ll be trained in how to apply this amazing memorization process to 2 scripts that you’ll receive when you arrive, a spokesperson commercial and a scene.  By the end of the day, you’ll be put on camera without the script in your hand.  


The course is based on S.M.T.TM (the Somatic Memorization Technique developed by David Dalton, Acting Coach and Casting Director, and Chad Schnackel, Actor, Writer, and Director).  You can order the DVD “How To Memorize Lines Fast” for $19.95 at to prepare for this workshop.  Read more…
