What Students are Saying

I love working with Brooke! She is an amazing teacher! She creates a super supportive environment, and she is a ton of fun. I've learned a ton from her, and I recommend her classes to any actor (new or experienced). They are a great place to learn, grow, and also make great acting friends. Check her out. You'll love her : ))

I have taken several acting classes prior to this one and am absolutely smitten with Brooke Totman's class. She has an incredible way of making you feel comfortable, bonding the group together, and creating a fun atmosphere focused on personal growth. She has a wealth of experience and is able to tune directly into your strengths and weaknesses and play off of those. Whether you are looking to seriously dive into acting, try something entirely new, or just bond with great people...this class is for you!

Brooke is AMAZING! I took my first on camera class with her and now am in her intermediate/advanced class. In addition to being a lovely and hilarious human, she's a dedicated teacher. Her genuine commitment to the craft and helping actors grow creates a safe place for anyone, no matter what level you're at. She knowledgeable, supportive, and gives honest feedback, making the learning process organic and fun. She's open to collaboration, meets individual needs and wants the best for her students. I've gained a ton of skills and confidence with her as a teacher. I would highly recommend Brooke and her services!

Brooke Totman is an actor, director and writer, appearing on stages in Los Angeles and Portland, and was a featured cast member on the television series, MadTV. She’s been bringing her talent and knowledge to the Portland area as both an artist and educator, for the last 20 years.

“Sometimes, I worry that I’m biased toward the spectacle of theatre—I love, love a big flashy show with all the bells and whistles. And then I see a show like 21ten Theatre’s LAUGHING WILD, and I remember that really great theatre doesn’t need any bells and whistles at all. A person in a chair delivering a 30-minute monologue can be just as riveting as a flying carpet, especially if that person is Brooke Totman. Her monologue is a master class in inhabiting a character”.
