News   American Theatre Wing's Intern Group Holds Panel on Casting Directors "The Work of a Casting Director" will be the focus of the next panel of The American Theatre Wing's Theatre Intern Group, 6:30 PM July 11 at the Manhattan Theatre Club Studios.

Panelists for the discussion will be Megan Larche of Binder Casting, Mele Nagler of Roundabout Theatre and Sara Schatz of Dave Clemmons Casting. The meeting "will explore the Casting Director's roll in the creative process, and their collaboration with producers, directors, authors and agents."

Current members, and those wishing to join the group, can RSVP for the event by e-mailing Theatreinterngroup@americantheatrewing.org, or by calling Stephen Abrams, Program Manager, at (212) 765-0606 ext. 311.

The American Theatre Wing's Theatre Intern Group "creates social and professional development opportunities for young people who work in theatrical offices; enabling them to build contacts with their peers immediately upon starting work in the theatrical community." Monthly panel discussions on the many facets of the theatrical field "offer opportunities for the interns to learn from professionals with 5 to 10 years of experience — long enough to be immersed in the profession, but not so far removed from the experiences of the interns themselves. Membership is open to all interns working in a theatrical office and annual dues are $10. For more information, visit www.americantheatrewing.org.
