I really loved going over monologues in class. I left feeling more confident in knowing what to do in the audition room. Thank you Mr. Richie.” – Lani Lum

To get advice on what to expect from casting directors and producers was very valuable to us. Richie was down to earth, ready to help and really looked for strengths in each kid by helping them one on one. It shows he really cares for their career. Thanks Richie!” – Cyrstal Lum (Lani’s mom)

“I recently attended Richie Walls’ Auditioning and Acting Masterclass and was extremely pleased with the experience as many topics related to the film and television industry were discussed. Richie’s years of experience as a top LA-based producer and casting director bring a vast array of knowledge to the class. His interactive audition and actor training leaves the class with a master plan outlining what is required to work and succeed in the film and television business. When one of the Masterclasses are offered in your area I would highly recommend attending.” – Kent Booker
