"She got the part at Disney, and she got into NYU. And it's all because of you!" exclaims mom and former Armani model Christina Silvers.


In this specially designed workshop program for teens 12 to 17 students plunge into the world of theatre and acting through a unique experience found only at Santa Monica Playhouse. Members of the Teen Performance Camp work with theatre professionals in a supportive and dynamic atmosphere to create an original production based on the world in which they live, unleashing each student's infinite creativity. Students study the world-renowned Playhouse acting method, learning how to build a trusting ensemble and create truthful characterizations.


Classes also focus on voice and movement, makeup and costumes. Each session culminates in a fully mounted stage production. Added bonuses include a new-found sense of self, increased confidence, and learning how to deal with pressure and stress. Limited class size means every student receives personal attention, developing the ability to excel in performance on any stage and in any artistic endeavor - theatre, dance, musical performance, television, film – from school productions to the Broadway stage.


"You are the expert and you've built an amazing program using tried and true principles," hails Michelle Steffes. Playhouse alumni include Jason Ritter, Zoey Deschanel, Emily Deschanel, Obi Ndefo, Jason Segel, Mickey Madden, Shana Feste, Rina Mimoun. "One of the best in the country!" hails Variety. "Thank you for changing my life!" says teen Playhouse veteran S. Jimenez.
