BSW Best-Of Badge

For over 20 years the Actors’ Network has been the leading actor education organization in the United States. Read below to read about how we got started, a little bit of press, and some of the underlying philosophy or our organization.


TAN Annual Holiday Party

Since 1992 we have thrown an annual Holiday party for our members. In 2003 the party had more than 500 attendees, and is officially a true Hollywood event. The Actors’ Network purpose is to say thanks to its members, as well as thanks to many of its industry friends. The guest list is usually made up of more than 150 agents, casting directors, directors, producers and managers. The fact that these types of folks are comfortable partying with a room full of actors is a testament to our member’s professionalism and the reputation of The Actors’ Network. Each member who attends may purchase up to two guest tickets, and this event is not included in The Actors’ Network membership.
