This class series is for teen actors with a desire to train like professionals.   We will work on the building blocks of strong performance, beginning with the actor's 'state of being.'  A relaxed body and a quiet mind gives the actor clarity, brilliant creativity, and freedom of impulse in rehearsal and performance, which leads to undeniable presence and power.  This alone is often the difference between a good performance and great one, or a good audition and one that gets you the job.


Along with some improvisation, we'll work on scripted material from plays and films, and on monologues.  Our scene work will be done collaboratively, like in a good rehearsal process, while script analysis and acting technique is taught.


Our work on monologues will be approached as preparation for monologue auditions.  Auditioning with monologues is an art form, and given that it's often required to get the job, it deserves special attention.  As a director who has cast many actors over the years, and coached many successful auditions, I have a strong sense for what makes an audition work and I look forward to sharing it with you!


"Steve opens the doors wide to imaginative choices and trusting your own impulses.  He has so much insight and clarity.  It's a game-changer; he gave my process wings."

-Harris Kendall, actress -  "600 Millas," opposite Tim Roth, 10 years - "Days of Our Lives"


"In a few months with Steve, I went from having absolutely no actor training to being accepted into one of the top college programs in the country - with scholarships."

-Andrew Gleckler, Performing Arts Student, Elon University


"Steve helped me to grow as an actor in ways I could not have ever imagined.  I owe much gratitude and affection to Steve..."

-Kyle Dignoti, Theatre Student, University of Arizona
