What Students are Saying

Brooke is a phenomenal instructor and talent. She has provided me with some of the most valuable tools in performance and has helped me build confidence in life. An excellent coach, mentor, and teacher. One of the absolute best anywhere.

thumb James Hartenfeld

I recently finished Brooke's intro to acting class, and it's an experience I'd recommend to any/everyone! I had never taken an acting class but was looking for a creative outlet - and was curious how things would go. With the way Brooke taught her class, the people, and the exercises/scenes it quickly became a consistent highlight of every week I was enrolled (by quickly I mean immediately) - so you will be very glad you made the decision to sign up regardless of your current acting exposure/experiences.

Brooke Totman is an actor, director, writer and co-founder of The 21ten Theatre where she serves as it’s Artistic Director. Brooke has appeared 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 actor and educator, for the last 15 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”.

“Brooke Totman is straight-up comically delicious. She’s Kristen Wiig with a sprinkle of Leslie Mann when they’re both a little drunk, tired and horny.”
