The Working Actor’s Lab

Santa Monica – 10 Monday nights
June 17 – August 19

An advanced workshop, where individual programs are custom designed to help each actor breakthrough any limitation to achieve maximum freedom and power. When breakthroughs happen, the experience is often transformational. Prior to the first class, participants discuss and agree to their special focus for the term. Through individually assigned exercises, scenes and monologues, actors focus on specific areas of need which, for example, might include the elimination of habit patterns, expansion of vocal, physical or emotional resources, acquisition of missing craft tools, organic, consistent performance, aspects of The Audition, etc. When a debilitating acting issue is solved, a new and higher level of work is achieved. What’s the issue holding you back? Where do you need the most work?

  • Limit 12 participants
  • Fourteen week session
  • $176 per month (total $440.)
  • (or 2 installments $220)

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 commit to the entire session and are, therefore, financially responsible for that session.

Testimonials

"He taught more than any other teacher I had . . . is responsible for creating the kind of actor I am today. He taught me how to truly take risks in my work, invest authentically in my characters, and expect nothing but professionalism from myself and my colleagues. Peter’s standards were high and exacting, and as a student, I was thrilled to be held to them. It was the first time I had been treated like an actor, not just as a student. The method that Peter taught is still one that I use today – he gave me the tools to access, emotionally and intellectually, very dense material. He allowed me to see that with every character, every piece there is always a way that is deeper and truer than you first imagine.”
