Class Description

Adventures in Acting is lead by professional producer and casting director Chris Gilmore with assistance from Leo Gilmore. It is much more than just a class where students learn how to act professionally on camera for movies, television and commercials. This incredible series of classes is aimed to builds the student’s self esteem and self image. It teaches discipline and focus as well as teaching students to use their creativity and imagination. It empowers the students to be able to speak in front of a group with great confidence and improves memorization, improvisation and even helps develop a sense of humor.

The classes are 4 hours per month, taught in two monthly 2-hour classes. The cost of the class is $125 per 4 hours of instruction. Upon registering, the instructor will set an appointment with you to evaluate if your child belongs in the beginner or intermediate class based on your child's age, previous acting classes or not, and personality traits. The schedule (day of the week and time of day) will be provided at that time based on the level your child is placed in. Class dates may vary due to holidays.

From start to finish all students will learn the art of comedy, drama, two-party scene study, cold-reading, monologue technique, comedy improvisation as applied to on-camera film and television performances as well as commercial techniques. Every month is a different acting theme. This course is the Real Thing, and if acting professionally is the goal, students will receive all the skills necessary to pursue a professional acting career while having fun learning them.

Each month a new class theme and skills are explored including comedy, improv, scripted scene study, dramatic scene study, method acting techniques, audition and cold-reading, scene breakdown technique/expanding your imagination, creating cool characters for movies and television, and commercial technique.

This class may be considered for elective credit for high school students. Please submit to your charter school for final approval.


This class is highly suggested for teens.

  • A faster paced class where students are challenged to utilize their acting skills to the max, as they learn new and more advanced skills
  • Many acting challenges are given which builds even more confidence
  • Great class for trained actors who are looking to continue growing in the art of on camera acting and seriously considering a professional acting career

About the Instructor

Chris Gilmore

As a producer in the entertainment industry and as an acting coach of over 30 years, I love bringing new creative minds forward and building the confidence of our kids and teens who are the future of our world and if it is their choice, of the entertainment industry. My passion is to teach our students to spread their creative wings and soar. Having been a child star, and having been taught by the best teachers, I know the joy of creating great characters and using the imagination to the max as an actor. As a mom of a "homeschooler" I know the great value of acting skills, reading, memorization skills, and the social skills and confidence that our acting classes have brought to my students and to my son (who has now co-directed his first feature film.) Plus, the classes are a lot of FUN!
