“The DVD “The Smart Stage Mom” is an excellent introduction to the business. It has great information for anyone starting out in this business. It is truthfull and honest and states it in a way that any beginners will be able to understand. It gives an excellent step by step instruction on what to do to avoid pitfalls and being taken advantage of in this industry. Having done casting for 27 years I wish more people would have been able to see this sooner. This would have helped me when beginners come in for an audition.” -Patti Kalles, CSA – Kalles Levine Casting
