Stagecoach Foundation invites you to a free acting class taught by legendary new mexico casting director angelique midthunder, CSA.
Perfect opportunity for actors of any age looking for knowledge, craft and growth.
Angelique Midthunder began her career in the mid-1990s by answering an ad on a whim for a casting call. After landing a leading role in a foreign film and working internationally as an actress, she consequently discovered an intrigue for the casting process. Angelique spent many successful years working in Los Angeles, and in 2005 relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico where she quickly became one of the state's preeminent casting directors. In addition to casting every character type, Angelique has developed a special niche for Native American casting and prides herself on preserving integrity in cultural casting while recognizing the value of creative freedom.
In 2010 she was nominated alongside Richard Hicks and David Ruben for an Emmy for "Outstanding Casting for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special" for Georgia O'Keeffe - and in 2017, she was nominated alongside Jeanne McCarthy for an Aritos Award for location casting for Captain Fantastic. She is a current member of the Casting Society of America (CSA) and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
She now helms Midthunder Casting, servicing New Mexico and the surrounding area in partnership with Jennifer Schwalenberg, former Deputy Director of the New Mexico State Film Office,
