Classes at the Beverly Hills Playhouse are an experience unlike any other acting school. The classes are well known to be exciting, passionate, entertaining, illuminative. Often new students entering the school for the first time are astonished that any class could have so much positive energy. The BHP has many students who have been part of the program for 15 years or more, a testament to the fact that the classes serve as a kind of "fountain of youth" - as your career unfolds with its inevitable ups and downs, the BHP will be your gym, your laboratory, your artistic home. You will not find anyone with more enthusiastic support for your success than your classmates and teachers at the BHP.
At the Advanced level, teachers Allen Barton and Art Cohan conduct a Scene Lab every Tuesday morning from 10am to 1pm at the upstairs Research Theatre on Robertson Blvd. This is an opportunity for advanced students to bring in scenework at any stage of the process, from first reading to full run-through.
