Hey! I just wanted to send a quick thanks to Sean and David. I took level 1 this past Fall, and I just got my first call back. The class was so incredibly helpful to me, and I am hoping to save up to take the next level soon. I just wanted to send a big sincere thank you because I know that just getting to this point means I have improved so much. Have a great day!– Devin
Thank you for a wonderful class over the last 8 weeks. I learned so much, and feel so much more grounded in this area of auditioning. Again, I really got exactly what I was hoping to out of the class: practical and applicable tools, a sense of knowing how CD's are thinking when they cast, and an empowering release of weird fears and self-criticism/editorialism. So for all that, thanks a bunch.– Elizabeth W.
Could you please pass this along to David and Sean. I just wanted to let you guys know that I loved your class. It was by far the most beneficial acting class I've ever taken. I can't wait to finish the program.– Leigh
Just wanted to mention I booked my first episodic (and my first SAG gig) with that new series shooting here, Betrayal! It's got the potential to be recurring (fingers crossed). Couldn't have done it without your excellent training, y'all! It's a baby step, but I'm steppin'...Thanks!– Jin
I just wanted to thank you two for a really great class and everything that you taught in this past 8 weeks. I feel like I gleaned SO much information in each one, really, and I appreciated being in a class with instructors who know their stuff, didn't waste our time and effort, and kept it real.– Emily
I can't thank enough my daughter's teachers for all the fun she had in class and the knowledge she acquired at the Green Room studio. Sasha booked her first (SAG) commercial two weeks after the class ended. She booked another SAG commercial shortly thereafter and is about to become a union member a month after turning 6! We will definitely take more Green Room classes down the road as they were invaluable for both me and my daughter!– Sasha's Mom
Taking GRPP Levels 1-3 was hands down the best money I've spent in the three years I've been acting. I used to make the same mistakes over and over at auditions. Now, I'm getting frequent callbacks - and I'm even starting to get cast in roles that are against type!– Annelyse Ahmad

No one really talks about this but line memorization (or the lack thereof) wreaks havoc in auditions, rehearsals and performances alike. The way in which you memorize can restrict your performance and that restricts your spontaneity and that’s not good. Another big problem happens when an actor thinks they’re off book but then when they go into performance the words don’t show up and everything comes to a screeching halt.
Make a study of how you memorize. Become aware of how long it takes you to memorize something and, more importantly, how long it takes you to be completely free of the book. Until the words just show up without you having to rummage around in your head, you are not completely memorized.
In the Green Room Professional Program the processes of memorization and script development receives a lot of attention because both have a profound impact on performance.
One of the hardest things about being a goal-setter is the ability to let it go. By letting go of your attachment to the goal, it can actually become easier to achieve.
There’s a fair chance that your misunderstanding of the difference between a good acting partner and a good tennis partner is costing you a fair amount of money in your auditions. Read more
