Got a self-taped Audition? Hire Chris Russell!

CONTACT: CRUSSELL84@GMAIL.COM Need to film a huge audition, but only have your smartphone and a non-actor roommate to help you film and read? Don't have any reel material, but want to have a clip of you performing a scene or monologue on film for your casting network profiles? With casting directors and producers getting hundreds and hundreds of submissions for each project, those without video media on their actors access and backstage profiles are the first bunch to get filtered out. Every time. Having clips on those sites is crucial is booking work as an actor. For just $75 an hour, you can receive on-camera coaching with a committed, trained actor (me!) as your reader. Whether you want t

Congrats to Correy West in Love Never Dies!

Congrats to MCS artist @correywest for booking the new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical LOVE NEVER DIES. "I can't even express how much @ryantofil and MCS has changed my life. Professionally and personally. The entertainment business and NYC can break you down if you let it. Ryan has instilled in me a sense of self and confidence that I had lost throughout my years in this profession and living in this city. He pushes me to think deeper and leave it all on the floor when I am finished on stage or in an audition. I credit Ryan as much as myself for my next adventure. He is truly a game changer!"

So Proud of Anjelica Fellini!

Congratulations to our own Anjelica Fellini, who just booked a role in the ensemble of Broadway's Phantom of the Opera! We're excited and proud and looking forward to seeing her onstage!

Commercial Acting with Kristina Cole!

MCS has a new Workshop for September! Date: Tuesdays, September 5, 12, 19 & 26 Time: 6-9pm Location: MCS2 Cost: $125 (1 time only!)
