At my theatre, we do original comedy plays and do improv. The class size is small and each student receives individual attention. Students will learn techniques of acting and improvisation. Our theatre is a loving and caring atmoshpere to have students feel confident and to have fun at the same time.
Also, I privately coach for cold readings and auditiong skills.
I have been teaching for over 30 years. I have my teaching credential and ran the drama program at Taft High School in LAUSD. I now own my own theatre.
I have two daughters with very successful careers as actresses.
Ellen Marano has been an amazing teacher/coach to me for almost 10 years, she has not only taught me how to be an actor but has taught me life skills that I will use forever. Her teaching style is versatile to each student's needs and her heart is like no other. I have been at this for years and years, and I have always stuck with Ellen because her knowledge of acting is quite amazing. I would highly recommend Ellen for all levels of acting, beginner or seasoned you are sure to learn a thing or two!
Ellen was very attentive and specific with her directions during class. She encouraged everyone to explore every aspect of their talents and fostered a warm and safe teaching environment. Would defiantly recommend to everyone from young children to young adults.
