"One-on-One" Private Consultation & Audition Screen Test

with Casting Director Kathy Wickline

Kathy Wickline offers private consultations at her office in Philadelphia!

The acting industry surely can be a hit or miss experience for an actor not knowing the ropes. Aspiring actors need individualized guidance and a no-nonsense approach in learning how to navigate this sometimes crazy but definitely fun business.  It doesn’t matter if you are delving into the acting world for long term or just as a fun side job while you work your regular job. You still need the correct guidance and knowing the legitimate pathway.  So my private hour-long consultations are developed for you so all of your questions and concerns are addressed. Getting an audition screen test and private consultation with a casting director is unheard of in this industry.

The invaluable private consultation will personally guide you in learning how to market yourself more effectively and define your career goals for your type.  It is a great step for parents who are trying to get their child started safely and effectively in the business.Kathy has thousands of casting credits in commercials, television and Academy Award winning feature films and is a top casting director in our area.  The audition screen test and private consultation is conducted personally by Kathy Wickline and her staff.  You start off with an hour long consultation and can finish with a ½ hour audition screen test that is recorded onto a take-home SD Card which the talent must provide.  A full list of legitimate talent agencies and managers will be given to you to legitimately guide you to work.

I don’t bite…I am one of the most down-to-earth and personable casting directors you will ever meet.  I’m in this business because I love getting work for actors and making my clients (producers/ad agencies) happy.  You will learn how to work in this area, get representation and receive answers to all of your questions so you will have a clear focus at the end of the consult. A headshot/resume is not necessary in order to attend this consultation. If you have one definitely bring it.  Opportunity like this is rarely offered by casting professionals.

“Mastering Your Audition”

Private Coaching Session with Kathy Wickline


You walk into an audition and take guesses at just how to deliver the copy as best you can. Sometimes you get good direction, sometimes little or none. You receive a script without a background, leaving it up to your digression to develop the role. These are the pains you deal with over and over. It feels like a guessing game. If you are struggling with this experience this one-hour exercise will help you tremendously. Learning how to pull a back-story together gives you the freedom to feel your role naturally, which results in a believable and not forced or overacted audition.


Whenever I direct an actor that understands a back-story the results are remarkable. This one-hour exercise will show how. Believe me, you will use this exercise all of the time.


The invaluable one-hour appointment with Kathy will guide you in learning just how to develop the back-story of a character. Kathy has thousands of casting credits in commercials, television and Academy Award winning feature films and is a top casting director in our area. Getting an acting role is a big responsibility, as you are now in charge of this character. Whether it is film, commercials, or corporate films, developing a background and history for your roles is a vital skill in this field.

Cold-Reading and YOU!

This is a one on one class with Kathy Wickline.


Often actors receive their script moments before their audition (‘cold-copy”). It is just the nature of this industry. This however requires actors to make quick choices on just how to deliver their own, unique performance. Memorization often makes you look like a deer in the headlights and is not encouraged when reading more than a few sentences. In this 1 hr private class, Kathy Wickline will teach you simple tips, questions to ask and ‘digestion techniques’ on just how-to read scripts for audition purposes. ​

$145 credit card
