About The Casting Room:

Now in their third season The Casting Room is a web series that has been created for actors to learn the do’s and don’ts of auditioning. Viewers can tune in each episode to watch as a special guest learns the hard way how to deliver the best audition.

Special guests include: Eric Peterson (Corner Gas),  Devon Bostick (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Ennis Esmer (The Listener), Deb McGrath (Little Mosque on the Prairie), Colin Mochrie (Who’s Line is it Anyway?), Matt Baram (Seed), Sheila McCarthy (Little Mosque on the Prairie), Dan Redican (The Frantics) and MORE!


We based it on what truly happens in the room but wanted to write it in a fun way, keeping the love we have for actors, helping them at the same time.” – Stephanie Gorin
