The Month-long Acting Intensive
Mondays 1-5 Ripley Grier Studios
Not just for beginners, the month-long intensive introduces actors at all stages of their growth to Patrick’s training techniques. Over the course of four four-hour sessions students will learn a solid technique they can rely upon at all times and under any conditions. Through exercises and scene study, students will increase their ability to be present, playful, surprising, imaginative, and, most importantly, responsive to their partners.
Advanced Scene Study

This course is for students who have trained with Patrick previously. The class is currently filled. Future openings will be announced.

“Patrick never had a negative word to say about anything any of us did. He didn’t settle for second best either, but he knew how to get it with his own passion and love rather than frustration or disappointment. He discovered the play with us and helped us find the performances we all wanted, making the process one of mutual excitement, texture, and fun… I felt, ‘Wow. When can I work with this guy again!'”

“Patrick has this innate ability to be completely present with a person and understand their needs as an actor, and as a student. As an acting coach, he was instantly aware of the problems that I was dealing with, and he gave me the tools to navigate similar situations in the future, including in A Chorus Line. He is a wonderful coach, a wonderful performer, and above all a wonderful person because he cares about his craft and is passionate about the work and how it affects others.”
