Why choose Weist-Barron-Ryan?


We are an award winning acting school and casting agency that has been in the Atlantic City area since 1980. In fact, we hold the title of Oldest On-Camera Acting Workshops in the Nation. With over 40 years of being in business, our name is known and trusted nation wide for our honesty, integrity, and hard work.


Family Owned:

WBR is family owned and operated, currently on our 3rd generation of actors. As a family owned business, we put our name on the line every time we offer our services to a customer and this work ethic has proven to be successful throughout the years. When you hire us, you are hiring our reputation as a family. This also means that we have extensive knowledge and experience of noticing talent and booking the perfect actor for any role.

We are connected:

We have extremely strong ties with the South Jersey area and the community as a whole. We work closely with both local and state government, film offices, and private entities. We also hold the title of Atlantic City's Casting Company. Our community knows who we are, making it easy to find exactly what production is looking for. Production's are constantly pleased with how easily and quickly we can get whatever it is that they need. We are confident, by using us, your production would gain a great amount of support in the community, which may also help to keep costs down.


Full Roster of Local, Professional, Actors:

With over 40 years in the area, we have built an extremely extensive roster of actors, both union and non, who are local hires. We pride ourselves on knowing our actors personally. By training with us, we get to know them for who they are. This comes in handy because we know when we send our actors to a production, they will be professional and reliable. When you see our name on their resume, you know that you will get quality.

Audition Space:

Our location offers 3 full functioning audition studios that are ready to hold auditions in a moments notice. Studio 1 is located directly next to the reception room and towards the front of the building, creating ease of access which is ideal for running a quick and smooth casting call. If one studio is not enough, we have Studio 2 located directly behind Studio 1 which offers almost the same amount of ease of access. And if that's still not enough or if there is a concern that the audition will create a very large amount of noise, we would be more than happy to open up Studio 3, which is our largest studio and operates on the opposite side of the building. We have a total of 2,000 square feet of available use and all rooms are all rooms are equipped with high speed internet and category 7 Ethernet wire hookups. This allows us to live stream auditions, or "tape and send" auditions very quickly, if need be.
