2016 Audition Event Auditors

Actors! Thank you for coming out the 2016 TRU Audition! We hope you found the event fun and successful. This webpage will be the home for all the information regarding what auditors were at the 2016 TRU Audition Event and when. We are still working on gathering information from the auditors, so the page will be updated as information comes in. We will probably be updating this for the next two weeks, because it is difficult to get current information.

Each day is separated by Industry (casting directors/agents/managers) and companies. Bullet (♦) indicates that the auditors have confirmed their contact and other information.
Please do not contact people/companies without a bullet (♦) next to their name.
