In this workshop, actors of all ages (6+) train for two consecutive Thursdays with Diane Christiansen and one night with our guest instructor. Diane hand-picks scenes for each individual actor; taking ‘type’ & ‘castability’ into consideration.

These polished and well-coached scenes will present you at your absolute finest! Nowhere else can you show your very best in performance-ready scenes in front of one of the Industry’s dynamos – plus receive coaching and in-depth feedback from our guest instructor!

Along with two nights of coaching from Diane Christiansen, Actors Platform Performance Workshop will include:

  1. an introduction to learn about our guest instructor’s, career and previous projects

  2. a discussion of the types of genres he is currently casting

  3. a look into audition techniques and how to adapt your acting styles

  4. tips regarding your self-tape auditions

  5. Q & A period where actors may ask any burning questions they have

  6. and of course, a presentation of our well prepared scenes followed by redirection and specific notes

Participation in this workshop is by audition only. Please contact us for more information.


This is not a job interview or audition. The presence of a casting director is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment. Our guests do not take any head shots of the actors they meet at Actors Platform.

What Our Students Have to Say…

I love your workshops. Not only do I get to perform in front of my favorite casting directors, but I also leave your classes feeling loved. – Emma Engle, Teenage Actress
My son took your AP class with Troy Daniel Smith. He was called in by Howard Meltzer the following month and booked a guest star episode on the DISNEY CHANNEL show BEST FRIENDS WHENEVER. Even though he wasn’t new to the industry, he was new to L.A. and in-person auditions with L.A. CD’s. I really believe that meeting Troy, via your workshop, completed all the tools he needed to book the job.  He was able to ask questions outside the audition room in Actors Platform and he received great tips and training in a “no pressure” environment. Thank you so much! – Nakita Fitch, Parent
Last night’s Actors Platform workshop was really great! The atmosphere of professionalism and support that you establish is really unique and brings out the best in everyone. I felt good at the end of the evening, and a lot of that had to do with the high level of performance on everyone’s part!  – Suzanne Dean, Adult Actress
