“The actor will be cast from his ‘qualities,’ what is seen and felt during the first few seconds of an audition. Getting the role means that the package was clear, the performance alive, and the type appropriate.”

  •  Grow as an actor by mastering your individual character “types”
  •  Focus your energies where you’re going to be cast!
  •  Make sure you can act your character types brilliantly
  •  Make a clear and powerful impression with your auditions
  •  Become a complete marketing “package” for CDs and directors

How do casting people see you? What’s the best way to put your best foot forward during auditions in order to book that role?

During the first four weeks, students discover three to five surprisingly diverse character types that perfectly match their "look" and presentation. These are the roles that will comprise 95% of your casting over the next 3-5 years. Then, working on appropriate material, actors discover how to fulfill each type in order to present themselves as a complete, castable acting package. Actors emerge with much greater self-knowledge and confidence in their recorded or in-person auditions. These character types have other, extensive applications including headshots, agent submissions, marketing materials, etc.

N.B. All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to complete the entire session and are, therefore, financially responsible for that session.


"Thank you for the privilege of being in the room with the benefit of your wealth of knowledge, experience, discernment and creativity. I have been hungry for a good teacher for decades and having found one I can respect and learn from every time I'm in the room, I feel truly blessed. Thanks for allowing me to occupy space in the room in which you are charging the ions!!!”
