Ready to embrace your creativity and play with your artistry?

Consistent practice is the key to forward momentum in your craft.

The #selftapecreate challenges at ActorPlaybook are FREE and OPEN to ALL actors.

As actors we focus a lot of our energy on assets, marketing materials, type, packages, networking, the business and on and on. Can you relate?

#SELFTAPECREATE is our monthly reminder to PLAY with our craft, our choices and our artistry.

Original work

Yes, write it yourself or collaborate. You got this.

90 Seconds or Less

Is it a big deal if you go over? Just read the world news and NO, absolutely NOT a big deal. The time limit simply makes it easier to share your work on IG and keep in mind that it is a standard length for most audition monologues.


Does it feel scary to share your work? Most of us are shakin' in our boots, too. It gets easier the more you do it and we are here to support you if you need it!

Here’s what actors are saying about ActorPlaybook

Thank YOU Jami, for creating ActorPlaybook and cultivating a place where we can all learn about this business, cultivate our combine talents and grow together! It’s been a life-saver and a solid source of support for me during this unsettling time.
