For many years, the International ARTS Talent Showcase (IATS) has been making dreams come true for South Africans seeking a career in the arts by providing them with a stage to showcase their talent for international talent scout Kim Myers. Next year, they will take it one step further.
Regional director for the ARTS, Elsubie Verlinden, has invited Rhavynn Drummer - casting director for Tyler Perry Studios - to attend the IATS in October 2017, where a select group of actors will get to perform for the international casting agent.
Rhavynn has always had a love for actors and great performances and has worked in casting for the past six years. She graduated in 2007 from the University of Virginia with a double major in Theatre and American Studies, has had the privilege of working on Tyler Perry projects like The Family that Preys, Why did I Get Married Too?, The Marriage Counselor and the television series House of Payne and Meet the Browns and the most recent series The Haves and The Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
