Our Story

The goal from the very beginning was to be the supportive resource for all creatives with the dream to be an actor in film and television. Over these past few years, our community has grown and shown that consistent practice and development lead to forward motion towards each professional goal. Actors have the opportunity to attend bi-weekly actor training sessions, a monthly improv class and a workshop led by an industry guest every month.

The Classes

 Scene study, technique, on-camera practice, self-tape practice, monologue work and craft discussion are what actors have access to throughout the year at ActorPlaybook.

The Workshops

Voice, Improv, Auditioning, Script Analysis, Self-Marketing, Procedural Shows, Self-Tapes, Demo Reels, Mind-set and more are led by industry guests who are experts in their field.

     When Jami Tennille first started acting later in life she felt like she was really fumbling to find the light switch in dark room. Once she figured it out and started working, she had the drive to be that network, that support system, an insider to the industry access and create the community that she wished she'd had when she first started. As a result, she created ActorPlaybook.  Listen to her story to find out how she went from an aspiring to a working actor and entrepreneur.
