The Checklist

Milton Katselas' book Acting Class is the main text used in the acting classes at the Beverly Hills Playhouse Acting School. Each of the topics discussed in the Acting section of the book (such as Event, Evaluation, State, Pathology, Who's the Author, Humor, etc) are summarized in this checklist. Our actors use the list when preparing scenes for class, and have been known to take it to set with them in case they need a little help with a moment



Actor Start Page

Thousands of actors arrive in LA every year, and very few have any idea how or where to start. This page is a new actor's most valuable asset. It is even helpful to veteran actors as well. In a single page, one can find the links to the websites of the most important services or businesses necessary to begin a career as an actor in Los Angeles. Short descriptions of every site explain why each link is necessary.

Acting Scenes Database

This ever-growing collection of acting scenes makes it simple for an actor to find quality material for acting class and showcases. Categorized by Gender (with sub-categories such as Character Relationships, Era, Location, and Author), searching for the right scene couldn't be simpler. This means no more spending hours in Samuel French browsing through myriad scripts in the hopes of finding appropriate material. Anyone with a login can contribute to this database, so sign up and start uploading!
