About Actors Platform

Actors Platform is an AUDITION ONLY Casting Director Workshop and Showcase for actors of all ages (6 and up). Only a limited number of actors will be accepted (each month) to train for two consecutive Thursdays with Diane Christiansen. After being accepted, Diane hand-picks scenes for each individual actor; taking ‘type’ & ‘castability’ into consideration.

These polished and well-coached scenes will present you at your absolute finest to one of the leading Casting Directors in the Industry! Nowhere else can you show your very best in performance-ready scenes in front of one of the Industry’s dynamos – plus receive coaching and in-depth feedback from our guest casting director!

This is not a job interview or audition. The presence of a casting director is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment. 

Schedule of Events

Held on Thursdays of each month, this class includes: one audition night, two rehearsal nights, and one showcase night with the casting director. Typically, if you are enrolled in one of our classes or have participated in Actors Platform before, you do not need to audition. We also accept audition video submissions.

What Our Students Have to Say…

I love your workshops. Not only do I get to perform in front of my favorite casting directors, but I also leave your classes feeling loved. – Emma Engle, Teenage Actress

Diane, I’m just getting around to thanking you. My son took your February AP class with Troy Daniel Smith. He was called in by Howard Meltzer the following month and booked a guest star episode on the DISNEY CHANNEL show BEST FRIENDS WHENEVER. Even though he wasn’t new to the industry, he was new to L.A. and in-person auditions with L.A, CD’s. I really believe that meeting Troy, via your workshop, completed all the tools he needed to book the job.  He was able to ask questions outside the audition room in Accasting workshop showcase actors lators Platform and he received great tips and training in a “no pressure” environment. Thank you so much! – Nakita Fitch, Parent

Last night’s Actors Platform workshop was really great! The atmosphere of professionalism and support that you establish is really unique and brings out the best in everyone. I felt good at the end of the evening, and a lot of that had to do with the high level of performance on everyone’s part!  – Suzanne Dean, Adult Actress
