It’s Been A While…

We have had so much news occur since our last post on the website. Most of our updates have been shared on our facebook page here. Below we will quote a few of our FB posts from the past 2 weeks. Then keep an eye out for more regular news, photos, and testimonials throughout the website.

Today on Scott's Bio Page:

"Scott-Arhtur Allen was the founding coach of Creative Actors (formerly known as Creative Actors Workshop). His unique acting technique, called The Creative Process, is at the core of everything we teach at Creative Actors. Scott’s Creative Process, love, and encouragement will live on in all who met him. Scott will be greatly missed, but we feel confident in continuing his legacy because of his training and guidance. The Creative Process continues to bring consistent, deep realism to artists’ performances with a simplicity and organic beauty that has never been scene outside of the rare natural, empathic performer that seldom catches the public’s attention. Thank you Scott for a truly great gift you have given to the art of performance and to the world."

"Despite the pain we have all suffered this week, we are excited for this next chapter. Creative Actors is continuing with all classes and services, led by Elizabeth Allen and Kelsey David Shryer. Scott has taught us well and he's now looking over all of us from above. Just two weeks ago the three of us sat and talked about all of the wonderful things instore for CA and our students. Scott is certainly cheering us on!"

"Know this, Creative Actors: We are strong, We are united, and We are one! Despite the hardships we are facing with the loss of our dear mentor and founder, we will rise up strong. We will honor his legacy. We will make him proud every second of every class and every audition and every performance. We are strong. This is not the time to be hurt, sad, and broken. It is the time to give our full strength to the mission and legacy of Scott-Arthur Allen and that is "training confident human beings who can act". We can! And WE WILL."
