Online Workshop

The Village Mastermind


You are an ACTOR.   You are COMMITTED.   You are ready to take ACTION.   You are OPEN.  You are SUPPORTIVE.

Actors come in all shapes, sizes, and career stages; we don’t care where you are in your career, we only care that you know you want an acting career and you are committed to getting there. Nurturing a career takes actual time; you are required to attend at least 5 out of 6 monthly meetings and will spend an average of five hours per week on your career outside of meeting time. If you are not where you want to be in your career, you must be open to try a new approach. Most importantly, you believe that each actor is lifted when the whole community is lifted.


If these requirements do not apply to you, this program is not the right fit for you.
