Voice, Improv, Auditioning, Script Analysis, Self-Marketing, Procedural Shows, Self-Tapes, Demo Reels, Mind-set and more are led by industry guests throughout the year who are experts in their field. Our full library of past workshops are also available for replay.
Accent & Dialect Training
Have you turned down an audition or not submitted for a role because you didn't feel confident with the accent it required? Let's fix that ASAP! Studio members can attend accent and dialect classes twice a month.
This monthly class is your reminder to have fun, get out of your head and practice trusting your instincts! Developing your improv skill-set helps actors gain confidence in the audition room and on-set.
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.
