The Personalized Workshop

Four 1-hour Sessions 

A 4-Session Workshop tailored to your individual needs as an actor. Recommended if you have a specific creative or career issue that you want to address with Colleen that goes beyond the scope of a single session. Or if you are feeling like you need individual attention that a group class can’t provide.

Past clients used this workshop to work on the following:

  • Merging their acting technique and training with professional demands

  • Leveling up their theatrical self-tapes 

  • Practicing virtual auditions and callbacks

  • Script Analysis

  • Making bold choices

  • Bringing themselves to material

  • Character development

  • Working actor mindset

  • Navigating career transitions

The Actor's Wheelhouse
Two 1-hour Sessions 

What is the “The Actor’s Wheelhouse”? It is a program I developed to guide actors to do the following:

  • Get clear about your essence and how it shows up in your work

  • How to bring your unique qualities to every role you play

  • Refine what kind of roles you can nail with a short amount of prep time

  • Leave behind the fear of being “typecast”

  • How to connect your creative choices to your industry materials

The program will help you align your industry materials to Your Actor's Wheelhouse through:

  • Headshot and Resume Review

  • Reel Restructuring

  • Online Profiles Punch-Up (Actors Access, Backstage, IMDb)

  • Long-Term and Short-Term Goal-Setting

The Beginner's Session
One 75-minute Session

  • Personalized guidance on how to become a professional actor

  • What to look for in classes and training programs

  • How to gain experience in any market as a beginner

  • How to find scripts and other practice materials

  • Current entertainment industry information and jargon

  • Avoiding scams and spotting red flags

  • Playing the long game- the journey of a working actor

Not a guarantee of joining my current client roster.

As a producer and director, I love when I know the actor I'm about watch is client of Colleen's. They are always so prepared and bring it!
