Northwest actors, perhaps you’ve seen the Audition America Tour at a mall near you.
A quick on-line search will bring plenty of warning signs that this “audition” may give you far more opportunities to part with your money than opportunities for acting and modeling work. Take a look at these reports:
This is certainly not the first time an organization like this has conducted “talent searches” in the Pacific Northwest, promising you a chance at fame and stardom… for a fee. APP-NW members know that these auditions rarely provide opportunities for work, and actors shouldn’t pay-to-play – but there are many newcomers out there who are blinded by the stars in their eyes.
We hope that professional performers throughout our region will share this information with the hopefuls out there and encourage them to research any opportunity they may be considering.
