Casting Actors for Barry County Public Service Announcements

Casting Call for Actors, Actresses and Extras

Three short Public Service Announcements will be shot in the Barry County and the Greater Grand Rapids Area on September 15th & 16th.

The content of the PSA’s deals with differing forms of abuse and they target giving teens direction on how to cope.
