"Just wanted to update you - I recently signed with Bob from ATB thanks to the Actor's Loft Agent Night! Thanks for helping to facilitate this career move - greatly appreciated!" - Carver Duncan
"I am now with John Shea at FBI on a freelance basis. Thank you so much for everything you do. It truly means a lot to us lowly actors. Thanks again!" - Darian Peer
"When I attended the Actors Loft "Agent Night" my expectations were passed. Mary, who runs the actors loft, was welcoming, warm and ran the workshop passionately. The feedback I received from the agents were immensely helpful and encouraging. Because of this workshop I was signed by one of the four agencies that attended that night and now have an agent that I really resonate with and will help me further my career. I highly recommend taking this class, if not only for the feedback, it will make you as an actor really realize what YOU bring to the table and how the professional theatre community perceives you! Oh, and it was a BLAST!" - Lexi Lyric
"I received two responses from Actor's Night. After e-mailing and meeting with them both, I am currently freelancing with Zane at Daniel Hoff Agency whom I met at our Agent Night session. I appreciated the thoughtful responses from the other agents as well. No more do I have those sinking questions "how did I come across in the room" or "how do I read as a first impression", because all of those questions are answered in the Agent's feedback! Things are going well so far, so I am thankful that I was able to attend the evening (which was very much in my price range.) I have recommended your upcoming on-camera class to friends of mine and given several more recommendations for Agent Night, as well. Thank you for providing a great opportunity for actors to make this crucial connection!" - Larry Owens
"I just wanted to say thank you for an awesome learning experience last night. I got some great feedback that I can take away and work on. Ill be sure to recommend the class to friends who are looking for representation. Ill be taking the Bob Cline session, so I'll look forward to working with you again soon!" - Samantha Disney
"The night was so streamlined, and very easygoing! The chance to run through the pieces beforehand in the space was invaluable for getting comfortable and for setting my nerves at ease! I really liked the comment forms distributed to the agents as well; the feedback was so great and informative. Thanks again for a great opportunity!" - Jocelyn Lonquist
