King Lear and a Casting Director
Portland Actors Ensemble is one of the oldest Shakespeare in the Parks groups in the country. For 40 years, they've offered free Shakespeare every summer and have trained countless young actors in performing the bard's plays. Hear more about it on Stage and Studio. Also check out the interview with Casting Director Lana Veenker. She's cast hundreds of Portland actors in the current cable show "Leverage" and the Harrison Ford movie "The Crowley Project." She's supporting Senate Bill 621 which would make more tax incentives for film and TV producers. Hear how it could make Oregon millions of dollars.
Take care, Dmae
