"Great in so many ways!" exclaims Maroon 5's Mickey Madden. It's Chris DeCarlo's Actors' Workshop, now zooming at Santa Monica Playhouse Online. Conquer the critic within, overcome competition fear, and have fun discovering your artist's voice. Hone your skills and then put them in action in an original play – not a showcase – video-taped at the end of the session.


Every Actors' Workshop session offers a new play, a new opportunity, a new role written especially for you via the internationally acclaimed ShortBurst® Theatre process. Unleash your creative self in a unique experience that uses theatre to enhance communication, build self-confidence, and explore interpersonal relationships. Helmed by Playhouse Co-Artistic Director Chris DeCarlo, Actors' Workshop online offers small classes and personal attention from actor\/director/playwright DeCarlo who has worked with thousands of performers and is directly responsible for more than 250 world premiere productions. Recent credits include Doug Knott's Last of the Knotts (Critic's Choice! LA TIMES), Jerry Mayer's acclaimed Aspirin & ELEPHANTS (Critic's Choice! LA TIMES) and Albert James Kallis's world premiere A DeLUSIONAL Affair.


Students have included Broadway actors and television personalities, athletes, therapists, engineers, architects, sculptors, poets, university professors, teachers, a neurosurgeon and a Los Angeles District Attorney. Enrollment is now open for Winter (January 18-March 8, 2021, Mondays 6:30-8:30pm). Alumni of Mr. DeCarlo's method include producer/writer Rina Mimoun (Gilmore Girls, Mistresses), Teri Nunn (Berlin), Jason Segel, Jason Ritter, Shana Feste, Diana Silvers, Cami Anderson (Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World). Monday evenings, 6:30pm-8:30pm
