Hi Everyone. This is Shannon, the Director of Education here at Stage 32.

We’re extremely fortunate to work with over 400 executives and top professionals in their fields to teach our Next Level Webinars, Classes and Labs. Our goal is to bring you the highest quality education possible, straight from the source, so you can learn from those currently in the trenches how to survive and prosper in your desired field.

Well now we’re taking it even one step further...

Introducing the 15 Minutes With... Series!


To bring you even closer to the action, I will be hosting free 15-minute interviews with our Next Level Webinar and Class instructors!

The intention of these interviews is to get you up close and personal with our instructors, providing some insight and tips for improving your craft. This is your chance to pick the brain of some of the top professionals working in Hollywood right from the comfort of your own home. Plus, I will take live questions from the audience so you have the ability to ask any questions that you want!


To kick off our exciting 15 Minutes With Series, I will be interviewing actor Wesam Keesh in a free online webcast!


Wesam is best known for his roles on The Mentalist, NCIS and Touch, as well as his current role as Kyle on MTV’s hit show (and one of my favorites on TV right now) Awkward. Wesam is also the host and creator of the wildly popular Actors Anonymous Podcast, a podcast that focuses on the struggles and hardships as well as the success stories of those whom have worked to build an acting career in Hollywood.
