Class Act Dallas Studio Shows, which feature live performances in an intimate studio setting, have become popular industry events with SRO audiences. Our Studio productions have included the area premieres of Neil LaBute's Autobahn and Howard Korder's The Middle Kingdom. Below is a selection of responses from our friends in the industry who attended CAD Studio Shows.

Suzanne Horne, The Horne Agency

Hey Daniel:

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your showcase Friday evening.

It was very well organized, and I was impressed with the quality of the scenes. (I'm sure due in great part to your knowledge of film direction).

It is to your credit that you had 4 agents represented there: me, Dawn Landrum, Joe Chavez and Teresa Andrion. Believe it or not, that is a nice amount of agents compared to other showcases!

You had some wonderful talent in your group.

I look forward to the next one!

Thanks again

Hey Daniel!

I LOVED the showcase. VERY well produced and the talent was well prepared and nailed their spots. I will always be there!!

I was extremely proud of my talent! What an incredible opportunity to view their progress in an easy and relaxed venue. I cannot always attend plays. I don't put talent on plays. I attend as many film screenings as humanly or inhumanly possible. Your showcase used film scenes or scenes that could easily adapt into film OR that utilized what film/TV actors have gained from training.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I too am very jazzed and excited. We appreciate your time and effort in facilitating this exciting event. Thank you for what you do, Daniel!

Staying tuned!


Dawn Landrum, Landrum Arts LA


Thank you so much for the warm welcome and top notch reception of Tia and me.

You are a total doll! I can tell that we will be great friends.

Your show case was enjoyable and the people were friendly and professional.

This is a wonderful idea and I have a lot of interest in some of your actors.

I hope your second night was as memorable as your first for all of you.

Thank you again! It's been a pleasure!


Teresa Andrion, CORE Talent

Dear Daniel,

Your showcase was GREAT! It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to see many of our Core actors as well as other local actors display their talents…your passion for your work really shined through your students that night. The scenes were well chosen, the pace was perfect, the scene changes smooth, and the performances entertaining. I look forward to attending more showcases in the future! It's one of the most enjoyable parts of my job as an agent. Thanks so much for all you do!

Joseph Chavez, The Moxie Agency

I've been to shows at two of the major acting repertories in the country, and they both put me to sleep in ten minutes. This show kept my interest every scene. This is an acting company!

Jeffrey Nightbyrd, Acclaim Talent

Even the scene changes showed how much the actors cared about one another. There was not one actor who did not belong on that stage.
