Washington DC Casting
The fact that Washington DC casting presents very good opportunities for aspiring entertainment talent is sometimes considered a well-kept secret. Not too many people know that the nation's capital, also known as the District of Columbia, boasts a population of over 5.3 million within the greater Washington area, making it the eighth-largest metropolitan area in the country. When combined with nearby Baltimore, Maryland and its suburbs, the greater Washington-Baltimore metropolitan area has a population exceeding eight million residents, making it the fourth largest entertainment market in the country.
Perhaps better known for its government attractions, and multiple museums and galleries, Washington is also the country's national center for the arts and home to a wide variety of theaters and stages where the performing arts constantly present hopeful artists the opportunity to attend casting calls for all types of local and national productions.
Washington DC casting also benefits from the city's rich independent theater tradition. Institutions such as Arena Stage, the Shakespeare Theatre Company, and the Studio Theatre all feature classic works and new American plays where casting calls for new talent are ongoing. The city's music history includes a famous part of the Northwest DC area known as Washington's Black Broadway due to the many legendary musicians who got their start there.
