      We have a general mailing list but it is for auditions / castings all over. Unfortunately this is not a membership site with fees so I do not have the resources (employees) to send any customized alerts. I know sites that charge monthly fees have those types of services, there are quite a few of them.

        My 3 ½ year old daughter & I are both interested in being an extras in the Magnificent Seven. I am a 35 years old, African American female and we live in Baker, Louisiana which is near the Zachary, St. Francisville and Baton Rouge area. My daughter is well mannered, feisty, super energetic, extremely smart, takes the initiative, and enjoy smiling, laughing, singing and dancing. I have pictures of her riding a pony/horse with her cowgirl hat & boots that I can email you. Please give anyone of us or both the opportunity to act and be a part of this new project. I hope to hear from you soon via email.
