Arvold Casting is searching for actors for an exciting museum project.
Cortina Productions is working with the Yorktown Victory Center to produce an interactive multimedia experience related to story and legacy of the Revolutionary War. The Yorktown Victory Center is in transition and will become the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown in late 2016. This experience will play an important role in allowing visitors to discover the complete story of the Revolution: Britain and the American colonies before the Revolution, events leading up to the war, battles and people of the American Revolution and building a new nation post war.
