Our Classes

 
 

The WWAC offers 5 different on-going classes. All classes follow the same basic format covering: cold-reading, audition technique, improv & character development.  The main focus of the classes is scene study for film & TV. Our students have the unique opportunity to be coached by Will, a working director/producer, and Sara, a busy casting director. We also frequently invite guest filmmakers (directors, casting directors, managers, etc.) to visit class.

For any questions on the classes below, please call the studio at (323) 364-2911

Internships

We've always admitted students into these two master classes by audition only. However, we recently have started what we call our Pre-Audition (PA) program. This program allows students to work with the Master classes for a couple months, before auditioning. Generally, a PA Intern will do one month with the Wednesday class, followed by one month with the Thursday class (or vice versa) before scheduling their audition. Interns participate in class just as company members do. The Intern program is $375/month. We accept up to 2 PA's per class per month (space provided).

After doing the PA program we set up your audition. Auditioning for the Company is a 2 night process (you must audition for both the Wed & Thur classes).  The audition consists of a short 2-3 min. monologue (of your choice), followed by a Q&A with the group.
