The Working Actor

Get Working. Get Acting. Get Creating.

It’s a new day. It’s 2018 and what it means to be a modern working actor has changed. Success in this business requires razor-sharp chops, a dynamic set of artistic skills and the ability to be a self-starting creator. Actors who don’t embrace that get left behind.

The Working Actor with Adrienne Carter is the next generation of acting class. Adrienne is that multiple-threat artist who knows what it takes to carve out success in a business that only favors the bold. This class is cutting edge and incorporates everything we know about where the business is and where it’s going. At some point in every career, the industry stops giving an actor what they want. A career is only made when you find your way past that wall. The Working Actor shows you how.

Every week, Adrienne will empower you to create….on set, on stage, in the audition, in your living room, with an agent, without an agent, anywhere, anytime anyway. This cutting edge acting class weaves championship acting training with writing, creating and performing. This is the class for this time and place. This is the class that pushes back against the old power structures of the industry where an actor knows her place. This is the class that doesn’t accept that an actor should wait for permission. If you’re an actor right now, this is your dynamic, full-body ongoing workout class.

For Actors, Writers + Directors. BY APPLICATION OR INVITATION ONLY.

This is what an Acting Class looks like in2018.


It’s time to leave the old, tired paradigms of the business behind. It’s time to embrace the dynamic artist that you are. At this point in history, an actor must be a leader, willing to take and make opportunities wherever they arise. The Working Actor trains you to excel on camera, in your audition work, on set and as you create, develop, perform and shoot your own work.
