Lucas Talent – Information Session for Actors

In coordination with VAFF, Lucas Talent agents Jodi Caplan and Diane Nhan will be available for a meet and greet in a simulated audition environment.  This opportunity is for actors who are currently without agent representation or are serious about entering the acting industry.

If you are interested in learning about the industry and the auditioning process, please send in a headshot (if you do not have one please send in a recent snapshot) along with a resume that consists of updated stats, training and past on set experience.

There is no fee for this educational forum and space is limited, so please get in your materials quickly to get a spot.  Candidates selected will be sent a scene with sides that they will read and Lucas Talent will provide a reader.

This is a great chance for actors to practice their skills in front of industry professionals.
