13 Actors to Perform for Industry and Network Executives on October 6th

As part of its continuing effort to find and develop culturally and ethnically diverse talent and actors with disabilities, the Disney ABC Television Group's Casting Project will hold its latest showcase featuring 13 promising actors. The showcase, the seventh one to be held in New York, will take place at the Acorn Theatre, 410 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues, on MONDAY, OCTOBER 6 at 7:30 p.m., ET.

Spearheaded by Executive Vice President of Casting Keli Lee, Vice President of Casting Ayo Davis, Vice President of Primetime Casting Rosalie Josephs, Executive Director of Casting Randi Chugerman, Showcase Coordinators John Ort and Peachy Pascual and the New York and Los Angeles casting departments, the showcase is produced in partnership with AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists Guild), SAG (Screen Actors Guild) and Actors' Equity.

"We are proud to present an incredibly talented and diverse group of actors in our seventh New York show," Ms. Lee said. "Providing opportunities to diverse actors is a priority to ABC."

Thirteen actors were selected from among more than 600 candidates who auditioned in New York. Many of the actors selected were submitted through AFTRA, SAG, Actors' Equity and Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts, as well as many other theatre companies and organizations which represent New York's diverse theatrical community.

The showcase is not open to the public. Casting directors, talent agents, managers and other industry professionals will view a series of one-act vignettes performed by the actors and directed by Sue Hamilton and Joe Ward.

The talented actors to be featured are Michelle Banks of Washington, DC, Noshir Dalal of Rochester, NY, Sebastian La Cause of Akron, OH, Chyna Layne of Brooklyn, NY, Christina Marie Moses of Los Angeles, CA, Rudy Mungaray of Miami, FL, Gina Rodriguez of Chicago, IL, Nicholas Rodriguez of Austin, TX, Victor Cruz, Chanel Farrell, Ron Moreno, and Shirley Roeca all of New York, NY and Ian Verdun of Orange County, CA.

The Disney ABC Television Group's commitment to discovering and nurturing diverse talent is exemplified through many different programs, including the Casting Project, the Disney ABC Writing Fellowship, Disney ABC Creative Development Program, the Disney ABC/DGA Directing Fellowship, ABC Studios Production Associates Program and The Emma Bowen Minority Internship Program.
