MFA Acting Professional Development


We are the Northern Illinois University, MFA Acting Class of 2019.

As we prepare to graduate this spring we're faced with joining an ever changing industry. Some of us are returning to it after this three year absence in grad school and some joining it for the first time but all of us need preparation. 

To do this we're having workshops with Casting Directors and Industry Professionals both here in Dekalb and Chicago. We're raising money to help cover those costs so we can join the industry at full steam. Our goal is to raise $5,000 and any donations are greatly appreciated. Even if you can't afford to donate right now please share our post and help us spread the word!
