2014 Young Auditioners Program Winner Oskar Guzman
Oskar Abraham Guzman just graduated from ArTES in the San Fernando Valley.  Oskar is a relative newcomer to theater but has developed a fierce passion for it and wants to make it his life calling. He just came off a highly lauded run as Edna in “Hairspray” at ArTES.  He will be attending College of the Canyons in the fall to major in theatre with plans of transferring to Julliard and taking his talent to new heights. He is positioning himself to be the next big thing- landing meaty roles in film, on Broadway, and on television.
Oskar won the 2014 Young Auditioners Program, landing himself a role in The 24 Hour Plays: Los Angeles.
On his 24 Hour Plays: Los Angeles experience:
It really made me appreciate the arts in school because they provide opportunities such as the one that Urban Arts PArtnership gave me.
UAP helped me realize my dream, showing me I am good enough to be chosen out of a handful of talented people. The fact that I got to be up there with people who made it in this business doing what I love to do is just a dream come true.
