Katalyst brings top agents, managers, and casting directors to see the best your area has to offer.

Please remember these sessions are learning and educational opportunities only, they are not an audition or employment opportunity.

Katalyst has been advising talent since 2006. We have been bringing top industry guests to meet our talent since the beginning with great results: we have placed many our talent with top major market agents and managers throughout the years. 

We placed Adam Gregory with his manager. Adam is now a regular on "Bold and the Beautiful". We placed Galadriel Stineman with her agent. She has appeared in numerous projects, the latest being a recurring role on ABC's "The Middle". We also placed one of our young men with a management team which got him the lead in a pilot for Disney.

The majority of our Industry Leader Educational Sessions cost $250 to attend. Please note the educational session fees are non-refundable. If you have paid for a session you cannot attend we will credit you for a future session. Please also note that the last minute nature of this industry can cause a schedule to change on the part of our guest. If a date is rescheduled you will be automatically transferred to the new date. If that does not work with your schedule your fee will be applied to a future session of equal value and that does work with your schedule.  Click here to register for an upcoming session.

Each session lasts 3-4 hours. Typically there will be 20-30 attendees. Talent will be assigned sides (A few pages of script from a television show or film) ahead of time to work on. They will perform the sides with a reader. They guest will then give feedback. Guests will also work with talent on various auditioning and/or acting techniques. 

Everyone will get to watch everyone else work. This is one of the biggest benefits of the educational session. The guest will also conduct a Q&A period where you and parents of talent can ask questions about the industry. Guest will fill out an evaluation form for each attendee and that will be sent to you within 2 weeks of attending the session.

To add yourself or your child to one of our upcoming sessions complete the session registration form.

Educational sessions are filled on a first pay, first serve basis. If a session is full you will be put on a waiting list and contacted if a spot opens up.

These sessions are not auditions, we have had some of our talent signed by our agent and manager guests. These sessions, however, should be considered a learning and educational opportunities only, they are not an audition or employment opportunity.

If you have an industry guest you would like to have conduct an educational session in your region email and let us know. We will do our best to schedule them in your region.
