As you all know, we love having Mark Saks come to Atlanta to teach and share all he knows.  You will not matter how hard you look, a class of this caliber, truly any where. Mark's Bio to the right.  But the truth is we hardly have to post this on our website before it sells out.

Almost every actor that has come to his first workshop continues to come again and again.  Mark is what we all call the triple threat....not a like singer, actor, dancer.  Mark has cast in Film, Television and for Broadway Theater. He works on both coasts. This man knows every inch of an actors rolls and how they are cast.  He is current, casting right now shows on major networks. on his links, search his name, do your homework if you do not know who he is. want to know the best part.  Mark is truly a great guy.  He loves Actors.  He gives the greatest instruction and honest critique. You will learn so much about your skill and how to better it.  This class is simply awesome.
