What you'll learn in this acting class:

Two full days of personalized coaching for actors – for film, TV and theater – with Director / Producer / Acting Coach – Tom Todoroff

You will learn how to:
  • strengthen and find your true voice
  • seek your own good opinion
  • be a text detective
  • change the molecules in the room
  • have talent for your talent
  • think like a producer
  • be the acting “CEO” of your own corporation
  • dare us not to cast you
  • know when you’re ready to get an agent
  • be truly free by remaining unattached to the outcome
  • de-mystify the process and become an acting athlete
  • transform nervousness into intense excitement
  • act moment to moment and find the need for every line
  • harness the power of the outer casting office
  • be expressive rather than impressive
  • personalize a role and work from yourself
  • vanquish the unspoken pact
You will learn why:
  • the moment before can get you the job
  • there are no “characters” in your script
  • the words “random” and “whatever” are dangerous
  • two hundred and fifty is a magic number
  • your acting has little to do with why we cast you
Things to know:
  • All correspondence pertaining to the Intensive will be done by email. No phone calls please except in the case of a true emergency.
  • It is your responsibility to check your email regularly. If you have not heard back from us, please resend the email.
  • Please include your phone number and email address in all correspondence.
  • Performers will receive payment information with their acceptance letter. Please refrain from submitting payment to Perform until you’ve been accepted.
  • Observers and Newcomer Observers may enroll directly on the website – they do not need to wait on an acceptance letter.
    Walk ins are not accepted. This includes observers. Please make sure you’ve enrolled and received confirmation of your enrollment before attending.
What to Expect:
  • All Performers receive a Syllabus upon acceptance. Please read the Syllabus fully and complete the three required reading books before the Intensive.
  • Performers prepare a 3-4 minute scene with a scene partner. Performers are also asked to have a 1-2 minute monologue in case Tom asks to see additional material or in case their scene partner is absent for any reason.
  • Choose a piece by one of the 250+ authors listed on our Syllabus. If you are committed to working on a piece by an author not on the syllabus, you must email us the script for review and approval at least four weeks in advance of the Intensive date.
  • Read the entire play and understand the play.
  • Appropriate dialect for the text. Please only work on a piece that requires a dialect if you are well-rehearsed and completely comfortable working in that dialect.
  • Wear appropriate clothes for the period.
  • If you have a scene partner, schedule rehearsals and honor the schedule! 
  • Basic furniture (chairs and a table) will be provided by the theater.
  • Any additional props or furniture must be supplied by the actor. These must be taken home each night.
