"Great in so many ways!" exclaims Maroon 5's Mickey Madden. It's Chris DeCarlo's Actors' Workshop at Santa Monica Playhouse, helping you conquer the critic within, overcome competition fear, and have fun discovering your artist's voice. And it's the only workshop where you hone your skills and then put them in action in an original play – not a showcase - performed for the public at the end of the session – every Actors' Workshop session offers a new play, a new role written especially for you. Unleash your creative self in a unique theatre experience that enhances communication, builds confidence, and explores your creative self. It's a great tool for actors at all levels of proficiency, and a great experience for non-actors who want to be more comfortable in their bodies and hone their communication skills. "He's a wonderful instructor and has helped me grow a lot more than I thought possible. He's awesome!" raves Alexandra Lemus.


Actor/director/playwright DeCarlo 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. Small classes! Personal attention! 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 the Winter Session (Feb 4 – March 31). Acceptance is by interview only and includes free personal consultation and evaluation by one of LA's foremost directors. Alumni of Mr. DeCarlo's method include producer/writer Rina Mimoun (Gilmore Girls, Mistresses), Teri Nunn (Berlin), Jason Segel, Jason Ritter, Shana Feste and Cami Anderson (Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World).
