The event will take place on March 13, 2010 from 10:00AM to 3:00PM at Raleigh Studios in Baton Rouge.

Four hopeful actors, out of all of the participants in the workshop, will have their names drawn for the experience of preparing a cold-reading audition to be taped and critiqued by some of the most in-demand casting directors and talent representatives in Louisiana. They will get an advantageous inside peek at how auditions and the online casting process works. Meanwhile, the audience will learn from the four winners' critiques.

The winners will be working with a panel of experts, including Casting Directors Lisa Marie Dupree of Films in Motion and Hank Langlois of Caballero Casting, and Talent Representatives Lawrence Turner of Del Corral Model & Talent and Tabitha Bryant Huffman of Trinity Talent. They will conduct real cold-reading auditions where the winners will have one hour to prepare their materials, audition and then be critiqued by the group of top industry professionals.

Last year, the founder of Breakdown Services, Gary Marsh, along with the head of Breakdown Services' Chicago office, Jason Teresi, participated in the first workshop that NOARC hosted. The event was a huge success, standing room only.
