Actors Alliance of San Diego
The phone rings at the Actors Alliance. Gerry Maxwell answers. He hears this one a lot. "I gotta be in movies. What do I do?" "Any experience?" "None. But it's my life!" Actors Alliance of San Diego provides services for members and nonmembers. San Diegans probably know about the Alliance through its annual festival, which showcases actors, directors, and authors. But it's busy all year round. The new office, a former thrift store at 3535 Adams Avenue, is staffed by experienced actors and offers rehearsal space, a library, and discount workshops taught by local artists, Sean Murray and Brendan Fox, among the most recent. The Audition Hotline -- (619) 640-3333 -- has information on auditions, job openings, and theater-related news.
