Total Prep Fusion is a one day 8-hour intensive providing actors personal, in-depth instruction and practical, professional advice on the preparation process.

This multi-layered, progressive study is for intermediate adult actors, college-level and above. The Arvold-Warner approach is a synthesis of the major 20th century acting methods, with focus on supporting and developing each individual’s personal practice while also expanding their craft toolkit. Grounded in the detailed study of a scene, actors explore efficient, effective techniques for creating action-based characters for the audition as well as the set.

  • script analysis
  • sensory work
  • in-character thinking
