What Students are Saying

I am currently taking my second class in a row with Brooke (Intro to Acting and On Camera 1). After taking my first class with her, I couldn't wait for the next! She has a great energy and is generous with her time and talent. Her classes are really creatively and thoughtfully put together in such a way that all students are involved throughout the whole class time. The students in the classes I've taken have been a real mix of skill levels, from folks wanting to finesse their skills to others looking to develop skills to use in the workplace and Brooke meets all of her students where they are and works to bring out their natural strengths. The space is cool, too- a warehouse-y feel with old theater chairs and a giant screen to playback your work. I can't recommend her classes enough!

Holy Cow! Where to begin?! Let me just say Brooke's class is the first time I felt comfortable and willing to try and have fun whilst learning in a class. I've been taking acting classes on and off my whole life. I love her approach to comedy, getting to the basics and having people try it out on their feet. There is no pressure and Brooke has an amazing talent to find each and everyone's unique natural funny and making it work for them in their work. I love love love Brooke and if you are willing to do the work you will see amazing results and benefit from her teachings. I could literally write a Harry Potter novel series about my experiences in her classes but I extremely highly recommend you take it for yourself. Even if you're a seasoned performer or a beginner into acting everyone can benefit from Brooke! Xo

Brooke is an amazing acting teacher. I learn everyday from her classes. I highly recommend taking acting classes with her. It doesn't matter what level of acting you are, Brooke will get everyone to enjoy and explore the art of acting in a fun and safe environment. She encourages and motivates everyone to participate and expand the scope of his/her acting abilities.

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”.
