There’s a notion in this town that the actor’s life is about booking work.

While that may be true to some extent, the real measure of success is your relationship to your creative experience- to the personal expression of your specific, strong, unique voice as an actor and a creator. In order to keep that alive, you must be in rehearsal and in the active creation of work when you’re not on a job. And even then- while you’re working- you need a sustained practice to keep yourself connected. 

You need a place where you can do the work for its own sake, a place where you can take risks, be challenged, allow yourself to evolve. In Rehearsal is a place where Risa and a vibrant, talented ensemble of actors come together in the work every week and do just that.

And by the way, that’s what books work. 

In all her years in this industry as a director, producer, casting director, and teacher, this ongoing class is a realized dream of Risa’s and the culmination of her experiences. Be a part of the journey.


In Rehearsal is a deep and practical weekly training and workshop session for working actors looking to stay sharp between jobs, to stay connected to the joy of the work, and to create work out of that inspiration.

Be In Rehearsal. Every Week.

Your Teacher

Risa is a director at heart.

And it is as a director that Risa has put together these weekly gatherings of bold, talented actors, meeting you where you are in your process, your practice, your career.

The Work We Do

While auditioning is a part of the investigation, the focus of In Rehearsal is getting reconnected to your creative voice and to your fellow artists. This is an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and dig into all sorts of material, exercises, and practices. To explore ways of accessing your rich emotional life and to be able to make specific, truthful choices with ease. To create new work together- write, direct, and shoot what you create. To take each other to deeper and higher places, under Risa’s guidance.

In Rehearsal affords you the time and opportunity to come together in a way that will enliven you every week, push your boundaries, challenge your beliefs, collaborate with fellow travelers, and cement a practice that you can take with you anywhere.
