I have designed this class for the teen actor who aspires to take their craft to the next level.

Whether you hope to pursue a career on stage or in film, in this intensive course, you will learn essential acting techniques used by professional actors and apply them towards monologues and scenes.

I will teach you how to analyze a script and develop an honest, multi-dimensional character based on the text while practicing physical and vocal techniques to sharpen your instrument.

This weeklong masterclass culminates in an invited showcase performance for your friends and family at 6:30pm on Friday. Space will be limited.

Thanks for your interest!
i'll be in touch!



Patricia Duran is incredibly talented in her own acting, and on top of that she has a natural way of bringing out emotions and techniques I didn’t know I was capable of. She is extremely patient, and clear in her instructions.


As an almost college graduate, I’ve had many teachers. Few have made an impact on me like Patricia Duran. Learning from someone as inspired as her only pushed me to work harder as an artist. She is a role model to her students both in character and spirit.


Patricia Duran's teaching was fundamental to my journey as an artist, and I continue to use the tools she introduced me to both on- and off-stage.


I learned how to create and become a character from the person’s posture, to the way they walk, to the pace they speak, to their tone of voice. If you listen to her and take her notes, there is no doubt you will be able to develop as an actor. She’s a safe space and she truly cares, not just about theatre, but about you.
