Important message from Jennifer Bender

We are in unprecedented times. With the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the speed at which everything is changing, we are all continuing to adapt as best we can. Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our community, our offices remain closed until further notice. Additionally, most of the shows we cast have gone down until we all feel confident it is safe to get back to work. We understand these are difficult times for everyone and will continue to communicate to you as things progress.

On behalf of myself and all of us at Central Casting, we wish you safety and good health. Please care for yourself and those around you. Hoping we all get back to work soon!

Sincerely,
Jennifer Bender
