#44: New Shoes

Dear Friends,

 This is such a quick run– our show closes on Superbowl Sunday.  Want to know what I’m doing on Monday?

Conrad Cantzen Shoe Fund

Program Description

In 1945, actor Conrad Cantzen bequeathed his estate to The Actors Fund with the stipulation that it should be used to help actors purchase shoes so they did not appear “down at the heels” when auditioning. Mr. Cantzen believed that a good pair of shoes made a great first impression on casting directors.


Administered by The Actors Fund, this Memorial Fund reimburses eligible entertainment professionals up to $40.00 towards a pair of shoes costing no more than $80.00.

To apply to the Conrad Catzen Memorial Shoe Fund, the following criteria must be met:

  • Must be currently unemployed in the field
  • A current, paid-up member of a performing arts union
  • Must be at least 12 months since you last applied


Please download the application, or send an e-mail or call to request an application.

A completed application should be mailed to:

The Actors Fund
729 Seventh Avenue, 10th floor
New York, NY 10019
Attn: Shoe Fund

If you have additional questions, please contact:
