One of the best acting classes in Los Angeles expanded north In September 2009, when the Beverly Hills Playhouse opened the BHP San Francisco Acting School, under the leadership of longtime industry and BHP veteran, Robert Zimmerman. Since then, Robert has led the charge each Monday and Wednesday night in the clean theatre at 414 Mason Street, #502, San Francisco, CA 94102. The class now regularly numbers over 20 students who have developed an uncommon camaraderie and enthusiasm for their studies. The BHP San Francisco Acting School has close administrative and emotional ties to the famed Los Angeles acting classes, and is currently one of the hottest acting programs in San Francisco.
Robert Zimmerman started working professionally at age eleven at The Sharon Playhouse. The next several years included training with Jack O'Brien (Old Globe Theater) and Tony Richardson (British National Theater) and some 60 stage productions from Connecticut to San Diego.
After taking a break to do a some globe trotting, Robert arrived in LA to begin learning about Film and TV. He has appeared in Twin Peaks, The Larry Sanders Show, Port Charles and starred in the BBC made for TV movie, Murder, Too. Other film credits include the controversial Don's Plum with Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire and Working Trash with Ben Stiller. Rob also worked onstage at The Matrix Theater in the all star cast of The Tavern and received very strong reviews for his performance as the lead in Prelude to a Kiss.
Robert first came to the Beverly Hills Playhouse in 1991 and, in the words of one his teachers, 'found [his] home.' Over the next decade plus, he dedicated himself not only to his studies, but to the other students' growth, as well. He is fascinated with the process of actors discovering what elements of the teaching work best for them. Working in as many as seven classes per week, Robert has helped guide literally hundreds of students to the rewards offered by Milton Katselas' technique and vision of 'a room full of stars.'
