Tiffany Company Casting will be touring Afton. this Sunday Oct. 8th and will visit Afton's Old School Art Studio between 4-5 pm.

 

They are looking for 65 principal Roles and 300 extras. The commercial is centered around Our Local Cross Country Skier Olympian Jessie Diggins The story line for the commercial is the town of Afton sees Jessie off to the airport for the 2018 winter Olympics. 


Afton's Old School Art Studio is hoping the casting company sees an opportunity at the schoolhouse for some video shoots of our artists creating in a variety of mediums to show support for Jessie.


If you are interested in a role for this commercial you might want to bring some candid photos of yourself, a written statement telling a little something about yourself such as your age, occupation and what your favorite Olympic Sport is.


Come and down and lets show them how our small community supports one another.

Stop by and view the Artists' Gallery - works from our favorite artists and students.
