Casting director Roz Fulton of Direction and Exposure Casting recently visited Acting Naturally’s Teen Youth Company of Bucks County, Pa., for an afternoon of performance and auditions.
A professional admiration between Fulton and Wendy Force, Acting Naturally’s founding director, began during a visit to Acting Naturally’s production of Annie in 2018. Since then, Fulton has cast many of Acting Naturally’s student actors in several local films. Acting Naturally’s actors worked professionally on Sno Babies and The Retaliators, both Philly Born Films productions. While working in the films, actors were able to experience a professional film set and build their performance resumes.
The Youth Company Teens were asked to choose a song, monologue, or a scene from their Broadway Bound cabaret show, performed this past December, for Fulton. During their meeting, Fulton offered feedback along with an audition and casting master class. “There is a lot of talent in this room,” she said.
Actors presented her with their professional pictures and resumes for future casting opportunities. “This is such a unique opportunity for our teen actors to perform something they choose for a casting director” said Force. “I am thrilled to organize this for my cast.”
Acting Naturally’s Youth Company, based in Langhorne, Pa., is a professional development program designed for teen boys and girls who enjoy performing and plan to continue performing professionally. Acting Naturally provides training for boys and girls ages 8 – 18 in Acting, Singing, Dance and Musical Theatre. Acting Naturally offers 16 workshops throughout the year including summer camps.
