Auditions: Friday, January 14, 2011

This post contains auditions posted on Friday, January 14, 2011.

Today's post includes lots of work in the Seattle Area, but don't forget to check out yesterday's post, which was filled with lots of great opportunities in Portland.

I wanted to give a special thank you to Lauren Gates for sharing her success stories and inspiring all of us to go out there and book those jobs! We are so proud of you, Lauren, and congratulations on all of your bookings! It can be so hard to be non-union and book paid work, so this is a challenge many of us face in this acting community. Congratulations, Lauren!
