Casting Director Billy DaMota says Do not pay to be seen...auditions are free


... Most states have laws on the books, including New York, that make it ILLEGAL
for representatives of employers (casting directors) to charge potential employees (actors)
to apply for a job.

Since an actor's performance in front of a casting director is by law (in California) an audition,
charging an actor a fee in a workshop is a violation of the law. I suggest you check with
Consumer Affairs or the State Labor Commission for specific relevant laws in your state.
