I loved tonight's class. Merri Sugarman was an absolute dream. She connected with us in an adult and human way that doesn't always happen in a classroom setting. I thought she gave constructive criticism that made sense with each individual. It was a breath of fresh air. I'll definitely sign up for her class again! -Michael Brown
I really enjoyed (and learned) from watching others and seeing what works from a casting director's perspective. I have new inspiration for material that works for me. -Maggie Mae Dale
The class was very beneficial and Merri was as wonderful as she could have been. I definitely did not expect a high up casting director to be as warm to actors as she is.
