Detroit Acting Resources

Metro Detroit Michigan Headshot Photographers Mary DuPrie

This is a list of resources to invest in pursuing an acting career for children and adults in Detroit.  Headshots are not enough unless you just want/intend to be a movie extra, which just requires a headshot and to be the type they are casting for.

To be cast as an actor you will need something to put on your resume.  Pursuing workshops and local community theatre would be ideal to get ready if Hollywood comes a callin.  Acting is about talent and skill first and foremost… then comes the look.
