This workshop is an opportunity to get to know Alex and his approach to the craft of acting and training actors, as well as to begin the hands-on process of working on your prepared material. After an introductory conversation, you are invited to get up and perform monologues, scenes or audition sides that you've selected and rehearsed for the workshop. Alex will then work with students on their pieces, directing them on the spot and seeking input from the rest of the group.
Instructor * Scene Study  
After earning a BA degree in Theatre from the University of New Hampshire and studying Shakespeare in Performance at Cambridge University in England, Alex Craig Mann studied professionally with Milton Katselas at the Beverly Hills Playhouse.

Since, he has enjoyed an extensive career as a stage, television, and film actor before turning his passion towards directing. Some of his film acting credits include: a starring role opposite Ron Silver in Henry Jagloms's Festival In Cannes, Terry Gilliams's Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, and Frank Oz's Bowfinger. On TV he appeared in several popular shows including Friends, Seinfeld, Party of Five, King of Queens, and Las Vegas.

Directorially, he began his career winning the Ticket Holder Award for Best Director for his production of Eric Bogosian's Suburbia. He followed that with critical and box office successes of John Patrick Shanley's Savage In Limbo and Neil Labute's Autobahn. Subsequently, he proudly mounted the World Premier of Bruce J. Robinson's Another Vermeer, nominated for numerous LA Stage awards. Most recently, he directed Doug Haverty's award winning play Could I Have This Dance and Rob Rinow's Detention of the Dead.

Mr. Mann has taught acting at the world renowned Beverly Hills Playhouse and recently wrote and directed his first feature film, Detention of the Dead. He is currently developing two television series. One is the TV version of his first feature, Detention of the Dead, and the second, Herc, is a fantasy drama based on a modern day Hercules.

I believe that anyone can improvise - anyone!  And if you're saying, "Nuh-uh, not me!" then I must respectfully disagree.  Sorry to be so blunt, but I've witnessed it time and time again.  ANYONE can improvise.
