Royalty Rope Management
Only auditioning, committed actors are invited to The Advanced Program. Why? Because at our acting school we spare no effort or expense in getting you in shape and in front of agents, managers and casting directors. During this ongoing course, you will gain a deep understanding of character and script analysis, as well as invaluable experience playing many different kinds of parts in all of the genres you might audition for in today's industry.
Here you will also discover an acting technique which you will make your own because you will apply it not only to scenes and cold readings, but also to mock-auditions and actual performances, either in the Works In Progress (WIP) evenings, or The PROFESSIONAL SHOWCASE, where friends, family, agents, managers, and casting directors will come to see you(if cast) in a professionally directed and staged play. At some point during this program, you will discover you are out of excuses for not becoming a working actor.

The Acting Corps Technique – keeping the moment to moment work, but exploring ground breaking approaches to finding character through the imagination, learning to work in such a way that your imagination always feeds you, allowing you to create unforgettable performances that are also repeatable in a professional setting, i.e., you will be able to do what you do more than once, you will be able to do it on take fourteen if necessary.

The Advanced Program - EXTRA STUFF
Selected participants will represent The Acting Corps in a Professional Showcase. It is a well rehearsed show where actors perform, over a few evenings, for members of the entertainment industry.

Many former participants in the Professional Showcase have signed with agents and managers as a result.
