As industry professionals, we have all relied on STAGE for casting, postings, support, education, training, etc, whether you’re a performer, agent, casting director, or producer. STAGE is recommended for all performers of film, TV, commercials, industrials, voiceover, or print, whether you are represented or not. Join and support STAGE. They have been the go-to place for anyone who is aspiring to be in this business or the seasoned professional who just wants to give something back to the industry. I will always be an industry member of STAGE. I send new talent to STAGE and recommend all of their classes plus I encourage veteran performers to support STAGE because of the value added to our local industry and economy. Thank you, STAGE!

"The best industry networking tool in Dallas!"

"I have been a member of STAGE for many years. In that whole time I have never been tempted to drop my membership. It is a fantastic arts networking organization... loaded with auditions, classes and other valuable information. It is a great resource for both professionally represented actors and those seeking to discover how to get into the business.

Within the past several years, STAGE has become even more valuable to me as an agent with the increased exposure that the web has provided. We get daily information on auditions and theatrical notices. Since I represent so many theatre actors, it is interesting to see how much quality theatre is going on in the Metroplex.

STAGE is a "must join" for anyone in this industry. If you are not a member.... you are missing out big time!"
