4th Annual Talent Showcase

Call for Submissions

The Network Austin Mixer is pleased to present our 4th Annual Talent Showcase featuring YOU on Wednesday, December 13th!!!

Just complete the form below.

Central Texas is rich with as-yet-unseen talent. Here’s your chance to show us all what you’ve got, so don’t hold back. But don’t delay, because only the first 25 completed & confirmed entries will make the show. And the deadline for submissions will be here before you know it: Thursday, November 30th.

Anyone age 12 or older is invited to sing, dance, play an instrument, do stand-up, a monologue, or whatever talent you wish to showcase. Just keep in mind that young people will be in the room, so keep it “G-rated”. If your act includes music, on-screen visuals, or any special equipment, then bring it early on the day of performance so it can be set up and ready to roll. And be aware that at 3 minutes you’ll get the hook, so keep it short & sweet.

Fill in the form below to register. Afterward, if you have any change of plans whatsoever, then contact us asap at donise@acastingplace.net. And make sure your email program recognizes that email address in case we contact you with any additional questions at any time.

Last Month

The Network Austin Mixer extends our deepest thanks to our Guest Speakers on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, at our first (and maybe annual… from the turnout) Panel of Voiceover Professionals. We were very fortunate to have Debora Duckett, owner of dB Talent, Liz Atherton, owner of The Atherton Group, aka TAG Talent, and Mj Vandivier, voice coach at The Actor’s School (formerly known as the State Theater School of Acting) share their wisdom and insights about voiceover work. Attendance was superb and audience questions were addressed with precision and clarity by our first panel of voiceover professionals! We thank you 3 for offering your time and informing us about the details involving this line of work.


Note:  Baby A’s will place pylons on parking spaces reserved for our panelists behind the restaurant.  Please do not park in those reserved spots!
