by Roseann Damico Schatkowski | Jan 29, 2014

Junior theatre majors Kevin White and Emily Wisniewski took the fall 2013 semester for study abroad in London, England.  Enrolling in a full slate of courses at St. Mary’s College University in Twickenham, they each also signed on as interns with casting agencies in the heart of London.  For the internships, each had to perform a minimum of 135 hours. 

Kevin interned with Ken McReddie Associates and Emily interned with Michelle Braidman Associates, both leading British and international talent agencies with links throughout the theatre, music and television and film industries.

Emily summed up her experience saying, “I was introduced to the fundamentals of the casting industry through experienced agents and I attended performances at some of London’s top drama schools. This internship opportunity provided me with priceless knowledge and memories.” 

Kevin also trumpeted the value of his experience saying, “My internship with Ken McReddie Associates taught me extremely valuable lessons about the entertainment business that will help me make informed decisions later in my career and I count the time I was abroad as some of the best months of my life!”
