Great event - great turn out

Thank you Flick!

The Actor's Den -

Thanks so much for posting this. As I said, The Actor's Den is an open mic for actor's filmmakers and directors. The event is every first Tues. of the month, but for Sept. only it will be on the first Wed. which is Sept. 1st. I would like to invite any of your students to showcase their projects. If they have a film it shouldn't be any longer than 10mins. If they want to do a scene or monologue; monologues should be no longer than 3 mins. and scenes 5 mins.

Last month it was standing room only, we also had a Dallas critic in the house that wrote great reviews. In fact, we will be featured soon on TheaterJones. com. It's a fun night, there is food and drinks at the cafe, we have music and lots of networking. The admission is only $1.

If anyone is interested, I would feature them in advertising for Sept. They can reach me at 972-480-7575.

Thanks so much,

Khadijah Karriem
